Gun background checks give 'false senses of security,' GOP congressman says

Republican Rep. Thomas Massie came out Sunday against legislation bolstering background checks for gun purchases, saying that such measures would amount to "trying to put lipstick on a pig" and create "false senses of security."

"I wish that background checks stopped criminals or stopped school shootings, but they dont," the Kentucky lawmaker told NBC News' "Meet The Press."
