Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) interjected that background checks would mean "criminals won't go to purchase the guns, because there will be a background check! We'll stop them from the original purchase." Addressing LaPierre, Durbin said, "You missed that point completely!"

As the audience began to cheer, LaPierre interrupted Durbin, "Senator, I think you missed the point!" As tensions grew higher, committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) was forced to bang his gavel and call for order.

Earlier in the hearing, LaPierre's answers also annoyed Leahy, who asked LaPierre if he supported universal background checks. "If you're a dealer, that's already the law," LaPierre answered.

WOW...need we say more on the subject.
