Bernie Sanders On

Gun Legislation

 

 

In 1990, Sanders made a bid for the House, facing off against incumbent Republican Peter Smith. By that election, Smith had reversed his position and came out in favor of the assault weapons ban. That prompted NRA chief Wayne LaPierre to write, “Bernie Sanders is a more honorable choice for Vermont sportsmen than ­Peter Smith.” Sanders later explained: “This was not a question of gaining the support of the NRA, it was the NRA feeling they were betrayed by Peter who changed his views.”
