Appearing on' Piers Morgan Tonight' on Tuesday night, filmmaker Michael Moore slammed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) for telling Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that her effort to ban semi-automatic weapons would not be included in an anti-gun bill that will be introduced in the U.S. Senate in April (video below), reports RealClearPolitics.com.

“If a man with an assault weapon goes into the school where Harry Reid’s grandchildren go to school tomorrow and kills his grandchildren, what, would he stand in front of that microphone at 5:00 and say, I know how Dianne, you know, had to witness the mayor getting murdered and I just, my grandchildren just got killed today, but you know, we can’t get it passed because we just don’t have the votes," said Moore.

Moore also told Morgan that 100 million gun owners are in the minority because 200 million Americans don't own guns, reports CBS Washington D.C.

“And the politicians need to be reminded that there’s nearly five million members of the NRA and there’s 303 million Americans who are not members of the NRA. You know, Wayne [LaPierre] says there’s 100 million Americans that own a gun. Well, there’s 200 million that don’t,” Moore explained.
