AG Lynch: We Need ‘To Stop Individuals from Obtaining Guns Who Should Not Have Them’

Sunday on NBC’s meet the Press,” in commenting on the gun control push in the wake of the Orlando, FL mass shooting terror attack last weekend, Attorney General Loretta Lynch argued to have the “tools” to stop those from obtaining guns “who should not have them.”

Lynch said, “We’re extremely grateful that in crafting this legislation, Congress took into account those concerns that the director expressed more than a year ago. Obviously we want to be able to have the tools we need to stop individuals from obtaining guns who should not have them. But we also need to have a process, consistent with the law, to protect ongoing investigations and protect sensitive matters. And this amendment does give the department of justice both of those tools.”
