Joe Scarborough praised Chris Wallace and bashed the NRA on Monday's "Morning Joe."

Wallace drew notice for sparring with NRA chief Wayne LaPierre on Sunday, calling his notion that every child in America deserves the security protections that the president's children have "ridiculous."

"Good on him," Scarborough said on Monday. "...Chris Wallace really drilled down hard here -- the argument. Seriously? That all of our children deserve the same amount of protection as the president of the United States's children? That's the problem with Wayne LaPierre and the extremist wing of the NRA's arguments. They're stupid arguments! They've got to say, 'oh, and while a mother's clutching her Bushmaster with crying children' -- they're stupid arguments!"
