National Rifle Association President David Keene on Sunday predicted that a ban on assault weapons ban and high-capacity magazines would fail in Congress.
"I would say that the likelihood is that they're not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this Congress," he said on CNN's "State of the Union." He said he also doesn't believe a ban on certain clips could pass either.
Keene's group accused the White House of seeking to undermine the Second Amendment after a meeting with Vice President Joe Biden last week.
On Sunday Keene reiterated: "We're not going to compromise on peoples' rights when there is no evidence that doing so is going to serve a purpose."
He voiced his support for a database of mentally ill people in order to prevent them from buying a gun.
Keene said that it's President Obama and gun control advocate Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) -- not the NRA -- who are "scaring" Americans.
