CEO of the National Rifle Association (NRA) Wayne LaPierre was speaking on Thursday just over one week since a deadly mass shooting in Florida where, 17 people lost their lives.

Survivors the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School attack have since been campaigning for stricter gun legislation.

Mr LaPierre used the speech to launch an attack on socialism in America. He said gun control is the first issue raised when the “political disease” of socialism takes effect.

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, Mr LaPierre said: “You know what, the shameful politicisation of tragedy – it’s a classic strategy right out of the playbook of a poisonous movement.

“In my three decades of leading the NRA, I’ve had the pleasure of working with a number of Democrats who believed America to be the greatest country in the world. Because of our free market capitalism and because of our individual liberties.

“But during the last decade, the Obama decade, many of those leaders have been forced out as a tidal wave of new European-style socialists seize control of the Democratic Party.”

Mr LaPierre hit out at America’s Democrats for promoting socialism, including Senators Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren and Christopher Murphy, Rep. Keith Ellison, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

He said: ”They hide behind labels like ‘Democrat, left-wing and progressive’ to make their socialist agenda more palatable and that is terrifying.”

The NRA boss also used the speech blame what he called the “elites” for not stopping the most recent deadly school shooting in the US. He said: “For them, it’s not a safety issue, it’s a political issue.

“They care more about control and more of it. Their goal is to eliminate the second amendment and our firearms freedoms so they can eradicate all individual freedoms. Think about that. Their solution is to make you less free.”

Donald Trump suggested that some teachers should be armed in schools to help prevent mass gun shootings similar to the one that took place in Florida. He has since taken to Twitter to clarify the comments.

Donald Trump wrote on Twitter: “I never said “give teachers guns” like was stated on Fake News @CNN & @NBC. What I said was to look at the possibility of giving “concealed guns to gun adept teachers with military or special training experience – only the best. 20% of teachers, a lot, would now be able to.”
