142. 4/28/1999

ATTORNEY GENERAL/CABINET/JEFF SESSIONS: “Mr. Sessions has received A+ ratings from the National Rifle Association. He has opposed expanding background checks and requiring trigger locks. He argues for aggressive enforcement of existing criminal gun laws. [In his Senate Speech on 4-28-1999, following the Columbine Massacre, he stated] ‘It is hypocritical and really dishonest for the president to suggest that the way to deal with violations of gun laws is to pass more laws, if you are not prosecuting the ones we have.’
