New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that National Rifle Association (NRA) Chairman Wayne LaPierre was responsible for mass shootings during a press conference on Thursday.

LaPierre had attacked de Blasio and other notable Democratic leaders earlier in the day at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for what LaPierre saw as a coordinated attempt to make their socialist agenda more palatable.

“This morning at the CPAC convention, Wayne LaPierre, the head of the NRA, spoke. And he attacked me by name, and he attacked a group of other Democratic leaders. And let me say at the outset: he can attack me all day long, I’m not worried about that,” De Blasio said. “My answer to Wayne LaPierre is you are one of the people responsible for this massacre and all the massacres before.”

De Blasio then accused the NRA of making guns so widely available in America that a terrorist could purchase a gun if they wanted to.

“I want to separate that from the membership, because surveys of the NRA membership have shown they are open to sane gun safety legislation,” de Blasio explained.
