NRA’s LaPierre: No evidence new Conn. laws would have prevented Newtown massacre

National Rifle Association head Wayne LaPierre suggested Thursday that new gun laws passed by the state of Connecticut wouldn't have done anything to avert the tragedy in Newtown, Conn., in December.

Pressed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly on whether smaller magazines would have resulted in fewer deaths in Newtown, LaPierre disagreed.

“People that know guns -- you can change magazine clips in a second," LaPierre said in the interview with Fox News's "American Live." "There’s no evidence that anything would have changed."
