NRA's LaPierre Doesn't "Buy" Argument About High-Capacity Magazines

Interviewed by David Gregory on Meet the Press, NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre rejected common sense in denying that high-capacity magazines allow mass murderers to kill more people without reloading. Watch:

GREGORY: This is a matter of logic, Mr. LaPierre, because anybody watching this is going to say ‘Hey, wait a minute. I just heard Mr. LaPierre say that the standard is we should try anything that might reduce the violence.' And you’re telling me that it’s not a matter of common sense that if you don’t have an ability to shoot off 30 rounds without reloading, that just possibly you could reduce the loss of life? Would Adam Lanza have been able to shoot as many kids if he didn’t have as much ammunition?

LAPIERRE: I don’t buy your argument for a minute.
