A ban on guns can’t possibly work – so why not guard the children?

In a rare press briefing, NRA Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre gave an impassioned speech that blamed the media for glorifying violence and perpetuating the idea that tighter gun restrictions would reduce mass shootings.

“They perpetuate the dangerous notion that one more gun ban — or one more law imposed on peaceful, lawful people — will protect us where 20,000 others have failed,” LaPierre said at the event at a hotel near the White House.

“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

  1. An old saying goes: “An armed society is a polite society.”

    I would not necessarily bet on that. However, I would bet that a society with armed citizens is safer than one with disarmed citizens.

  2. I agree with the NRA, it’s not the gun that kills people, it is the “bad guy with the gun” that kills! Never should the right to have a gun be banned! That is the primary reason for self -protection! Very strict gun laws need to be made federally…against all Automatic Assault weaponry!

    • “Very strict gun laws need to be made federally…against all Automatic Assault weaponry!”

      Cathy, such law as you suggest already exists, and has since the 1930s. Please educate yourself on the accurate, technical definition of “automatic,” as applied to firearms. Then compare that definition with an accurate description of the weapons of Adam Lanza et al. mass shooters who have been inaccurately reported as committing their crimes with “automatic” firearms.

        What is your position on Gun control?
        A NUT will kill whether it be by Fertilizer Bombs of Stabbing by Knives!
        This Government wants to confiscate “all guns!”
        They will use a step by step control over the people to eliminate the gun ownership…just wait and see, it’s coming!
