WOLF BLITZER (HOST): What’s going through your mind as someone who used to work at the FBI?
PHILIP MUDD: You think it is antiseptic. It's not. I talked to a terrorist who almost died because he wanted to blow up a weapon, a car bomb and he was sent to blow up that car bomb by ISIS and Al Qaeda. And they didn’t tell him he was going to blow up the car bomb, when he detonated, the car caught fire, it didn’t blow up and I talked to him after he lost a lot of his skins, his hands, his feet. I have ten nieces and nephews. We're talking about bump stocks, we're talking about legislation. A child of God is dead. Can not we acknowledge in this country that we cannot accept this? I can’t do it Wolf, I’m sorry. We can’t do it.
