Michael Moore To Piers Morgan: Harry Reid Would Have Kept Assault Weapons Ban If His Grandchild Was Killed (VIDEO)

Michael Moore lashed out at Senate majority leader Harry Reid during an appearance on "Piers Morgan Live" on Tuesday.

Moore was outraged that Reid had not included an assault weapons ban in the Senate's new gun control bill. He urged viewers to email Reid and criticize him for not including the ban. Then, he wondered what Reid would have done if one of his grandchildren had been killed by a gun.

"If a man with an assault weapon goes into the school where Harry Reid's grandchildren go to school tomorrow and kills his grandchildren, would he stand in front of that microphone at 5:00 and say, I know how Dianne [Feinstein], you know, had to witness the mayor getting murdered and my grandchildren just got killed today, but you know, we can't get it passed because we just don't have the votes," he said.
