If you need any further proof that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has absolutely no clue what is happening beyond her leftist mandated talking points, look no further than her most recent town hall – where she erroneously claimed that background checks could have stopped Stephen Paddock from carrying out his mass-murdering spree in Las Vegas.
A retired Marine Captain and a gun store owner confronted Pelosi during the town hall, asking her precisely what gun control measure could be implemented that would stop a man like Paddock from carrying out his attack, if he had such a strong motivation to commit mass killing.
Rather than just outright call for a blanket gun ban, which would be electoral suicide for a mainstream politician, Pelosi daftly stated that background checks were the best option.
“We have come together in a bi-partisan way to put together what we thought would save the most lives,” she said. “And that is to have background checks, gun violence prevention background checks, and to have them be effective. Overwhelmingly, members of the National Rifle Association support background checks.”
