LAS VEGAS — NRA News radio host Cam Edwards called out Bryant Gumbel on Thursday after the HBO "Real Sports" host labeled the National Rifle Association a “curse upon the American landscape” and “pigs” in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.

As thousands of Americans — many of them NRA members — gathered in Las Vegas for the 2015 SHOT Show, Edwards told TheBlaze it’s a safe bet that Gumbel doesn’t hang out with many NRA members.

“I have a sneaking suspicion Bryant Gumbel hasn’t spent much time around NRA members. I could introduce him to mothers and fathers, veterans and active duty members of the military, law enforcement officers, doctors, and paramedics I know who are proud members of the NRA,” he said.

Gumbel went as far as to say that he “hates” the NRA and accused the group of not caring about “human life,” another point that Edwards said is way off base.

“The NRA members I know value human life enough to want to protect themselves and their families from those who would do them harm,” he shot back. “They’re not pigs. They’re good people.”
