Appearing on "The Talk to Solomon Show Live" web-based TV show, Gun Owners of America head Larry Pratt and host Stan Solomon both claimed that liberals support the Boston Marathon bombing terror attack because it may result in increased government control, reports RightWingWatch.org (video below).
“It’s not just how many conservatives or Republicans, because these people that were killed and maimed and devastated and traumatized were overwhelmingly their people, [liberals] don’t care, they are like the Chinese who don’t care if they have a million casualties because they got a billion backups,” said Solomon.
“That’s exactly right,” added Pratt. “This is mission oriented, they don’t care who the victims are, if anything it might be to their liking because maybe they’re thinking that will make the liberals all the more prone to want more control, which plays right into the hands of terrorists and criminals, but then I repeat myself.”
However, neither Solomon or Pratt provided any evidence that liberals support terrorist attacks.
Last year, Pratt claimed that Obamacare would be used by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens.
While there is a law that screens out people, such as the mentally ill, through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, Pratt failed to mention that the law was signed by President Bush, not a liberal.
Also in 2012, Pratt wrote in USA Today that "gun-free zones" should be eliminated because criminals don't obey that law.
