Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D) attacked the National Rifle Association during an interview this weekend, saying that there is “blood on their hands.”
Malloy blasted the NRA for lacking courage during an interview with NPR. He said the NRA is an organization “devoid of courage when it comes to making our nation safer.”
“The NRA is taking advantage of people’s deaths to make the case that we need more guns,” he charged.
“I’m not accusing them of pulling the trigger, but in some cases, I think there is blood on their hands. Because they have fought against gun safety for so many years.”
This isn’t the first time Malloy calls out the NRA. Earlier this month the Democratic governor called the NRA a “terrorist organization.”
Malloy has been pushing for stricter gun laws since the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
