Likening NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre to “clowns at the circus,” Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy admitted the gun control law he signed this past week was tougher not only on criminals, but also on law-abiding citizens.

“This guy is so out of whack that it’s unbelievable,” Malloy said of LaPierre on “State of the Union.” The governor charged that the National Rifle Association isn’t willing to compromise.

“Precious little,” Malloy responded when asked if there was anything in the NRA proposal he found useful. “It doesn’t make any sense. (LaPierre) doesn’t make any sense — thus my reference to the circus.”

The United States had its days of the Wild West, Malloy said, “where everyone carried a gun, and homicide rates were pretty big.”
