The National Rifle Association broke its week-long silence this morning to call on lawmakers to offer an armed guard to each and every school in America to prevent tragic school shootings like the one that killed 26 people in Newtown last week.
"The only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection," CEO and executive VP Wayne LaPierre said at high-profile and combative press conference in Washington, D.C. "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."
LaPierre waited until roughly 20 minutes into his press conference to unveil that proposal. Before he got to it, however, he cast blame on "bload-soaked films" and "vicious violent video games" for creating a culture of violence and on lawmakers behind gun-free school zones and the "national media machine" for demonizing guns.
Very good NRA. Don't even bother to blame the individuals. Blame video games. And demand that teachers arm themselves to the teeth.....
....Because that won't send a message to the kids? But video games does?
