Former America's Most Wanted host John Walsh is hosting a new show on CNN on which he vows to keep the push for gun control and the war on the NRA alive.
According to The Wrap, Walsh said:
I'm the father of a murdered child. I've done nothing but track violence in America since my son was murdered. We have a serious problem with guns in this country... and the NRA solution to arm every grammar-school 80-year-old teacher with a gun is absolutely ludicrous.
He claims the NRA has gotten so big and financially powerful through relationships with gun manufacturers that "they're not a lobbyist on Capitol Hill, they're a gun manufacturer rep."
Walsh's new show, The Hunt, premieres July 13. Walsh says he did not initially realize "how much his gun control efforts would be a part of his new show."
