NRA's LaPierre: 'Bloomberg Can't Buy America...It's Insane the Stuff He Says'

National Rifle Association executive vice president Wayne LaPierre had some harsh words for New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg Sunday.

Appearing on NBC's Meet the Press, LaPierre said Bloomberg "can't buy American" and that "it's insane the stuff he says."

WAYNE LAPIERRE: Well, I mean, you just heard Mayor Bloomberg, but he's going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people, and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the American public. They don't want him in their restaurants. They don't want him in their homes. They don't want him telling what food to eat. They sure don't want him telling what self-defense firearms to own, and he can't buy America. He's so reckless in terms of his comments on this whole gun issue. He talks about guns buzzing. He's talking about machine guns. None of these guns are machine guns.

DAVID GREGORY, HOST: But is he going to have an impact politically? He wants to be a counterweight to you. He wants to go into these races in 2014 and spend along with you. Are you preparing to arm politically those who agree with you, candidates and what not in 2014?

WAYNE LAPIERRE: We have people all over, millions of people, sending us 5, 10, 15, $20 checks saying stand up to this guy that says we can only have three bullets, which is what he said. Stand up to this guy that says ridiculous things like the NRA wants firearms with nukes on them. I mean, it's insane the stuff he says.
