The National Rifle Associations’ much anticipated press conference turned into nothing more than a pro -gun propaganda speech given by the group’s top lobbyist, Wayne LaPierre who blames the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre on everything from video games to violent movies of the 1990’s like “Natural Born Killers’ without the group itself taking any personal responsibility or coming up with any meaningful way to stop these horrible tragedies other than putting armed guards in school and turning places of education into maximum security prisons.
The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” LaPierre said.
LaPierre announced that former Rep. Asa Hutchison, R-Ark., will lead an NRA program that will develop a model security plan for schools that relies on armed volunteers.
More than a dozen security officers checked media credentials at various checkpoints and patrolled the hotel ballroom but that did not protestors from mic checking La Pierre with one protestor screaming “The NRA has our children blood on their hands”
And they do.
And after the (non) press conference that LaPierre gave it’s quite obvious that they really don’t give a damn.
FACT: The USA has 5% of the world’s population, and 50% of the world’s guns.
