Mr. LaPierre offered the NRA’s assistance in putting together safety programs in schools that include arming security personnel.
Very the long-awaited response from the NRA relative to the Newton Conn. massacre is more guns. With the American flag on one side and the NRA flag on the other the NRA’s executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre also said that it was the media’s fault that guns are so misunderstood in the country today.
I was really hoping that this would be a crack in the armor and that the NRA would finally allow some common sense regulations of the firearms industry but of course all we got was the same old…… When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. When all you care about are your guns then the solution always involves more guns.
I just pray that this round of violence is the one that puts the NRA on the back burner of today’s politics or even more hopefully off the stove entirely. When will all the sensible gun owners in this country finally realize the fact that the NRA does not represent their views? The rest of the world has already proven that when you regulate firearms murders go down significantly. If we don’t want to take advantage of other countries knowledge in this area at least we should look to New York City.
But then again guns don’t kill people do they….
