The National Rifle Association hasn’t received much in the way of favorable coverage from MSNBC recently. But on Wednesday’s “The Last Word,” host Lawrence O’Donnell took that unfavorable coverage to the next level by blaming the NRA for law enforcement’s inability to track down the perpetrator of Monday’s terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon.
O’Donnell made the statement during the opening of his show. He also blamed the gun-rights organization for the failure of legislation in the U.S. Senate that would enhance background checks for gun purchases.
“Today the gun lobbyists at the NRA got what they wanted on the floor of the United States Senate and tonight lobbyists from the NRA have made it harder for the FBI to find the murderer who planted the bombs here in Boston,” O’Donnell said.
