Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Patrick Leahy (D-VT) sparred with National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre during a committee hearing on gun violence Wednesday over LaPierre’s position on background checks at gun shows. 

When Leahy’s time for questioning was up, he said, “with all due respect, that is not the question I asked, nor did you answer it.”
