Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid joined the Democrat push to blame the NRA for an ISIS-influenced killer who entered a gay nightclub and murdered over 50 people:
Republicans need to find the backbone to stand up to groups like the NRA and Gun Owners of America.

"This is the country we live in thanks to the National Rifle Association and their cowardly supporters in Congress," says Reid.

“Cowardly supporters in Congress”?

This is from 2009:
Sen Harry Reid, D-Nev., got National Rifle Association leader Wayne LaPierre to speak about Reid’s support for gun rights.
Reid is in dire straits, electorally speaking, and needs all the help he can get lining up votes on the conservative side of the spectrum.
“He is a true champion of the Second Amendment back in Washington, DC,” LaPierre said of Reid at a dedication for a new shooting range.
Said Reid, while wielding an antique .22 rifle from his childhood, “These weapons become our friends. This weapon is my friend.”
It’s almost for retirement, Sen. Reid.
