Bernie Sanders sat down with Chuck Todd this weekend but things got a little heated when Todd brought up Bernie’s voting record on guns. Bernie went into overdrive to remind Todd how anti-gun he is and how much he hates the NRA.

Sanders Gets Testy When Chuck Todd Brings Up His Voting Record on Guns
Todd first mentioned Sanders’s prior comments and before Todd could finish his question, Sanders interrupted him to boast of his poor voting record grade from the NRA.
“Senator, you ended up voting for some of those reforms, gun control measures that you weren’t 100 percent sure would solve all the problems,” Todd said. “Where are you today? Do you think now—”
“Hey, Chuck, Chuck, let’s be very clear!” Sanders said. “Hey, Chuck, let’s be very clear. I have a D-minus voting record from the NRA. I lost an election probably for Congress here in Vermont back in 1988, because I believed that we should not be selling or distributing assault weapons in this country. I am on record and have been for a very long time in saying we have got to significantly tighten up the background checks.”

Looks like Sanders didn’t get his afternoon nap.
