    The Most Revolting Press Conference In History

    The Most Revolting Press Conference In History
    by James Schlarmann
    December 21, 2012

    Wayne LaPierre is either the most comically evil or comically stupid person on the face of the Earth. A week ago today, twenty kindergartners and six adults whose job it was to protect those children were mowed down by a man carrying weaponry that no citizen has any rightful purpose to own. For the last week, LaPierre’s group, The National Rifle Association, has remained silent. They pulled their Facebook page down and their twitter account did send out any “Yay Guns!” tweets. Then a couple of days ago they broke their silence and said they were holding a major press conference today, which I just watched, and now I find myself furiously pounding away at the keys, trying to hold together the outright rage I feel inside for LaPierre and his organization.

    So why did the NRA wait for an entire week to speak out on the terrible tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut? Were they going through a period of intense reflection over at the NRA? Remember, this is the group that has force-fed the public nothing but pro-gun fear mongering about how President Obama was going to take their guns away (he actually only signed two pieces of gun legislation in his first term, both of them expanding the list of areas it was permissible by Federal law to carry a firearm). This is the group that held a convention just over a week after the massacre in Columbine in 1999, a conference that produced the now infamous Chuck Heston sound byte, encouraging people to pry his gun out of his “cold, dead hands.” If you were expecting some kind of rational and cogent concession that their actions in the last thirty years especially have helped create a hyper-obsessed gun culture that has helped lead to an epidemic of mass shootings in this country, you can keep waiting forever. LaPierre’s audacity knows no bounds, apparently. The NRA’s big solution to gun violence in schools?

    Armed guards. On our playgrounds.

    First he needed to excoriate the media of course for their ignorance in gun specifications. It’s the go-to NRA rhetoric. “See how dumb these non-gun loving people are? They don’t even know that this gun is actually semi-automatic, and isn’t anything like BLAH BLAH BLAH.” Then LaPierre decided to inform us all it is all the media’s fault for demonizing gun owners. It’s certainly not the fault of the mother who knew she had an unstable son and decided to buy military-style firearms anyway. No, of course not. It’s the media’s fault.

    But I think he has only give one less press conference than the president has in a year. And we wonder why the country is out of control. We have a president on a perpetual ego trip!

    This has nothing to do with Obama. It's has to do with a bunch of tone deaf people like you who think they can continue to bully to the country.

    The best part is that you and your ilk are so full of yourselves you don't even realize that your time has come and gone !

    Wayne Lapiere has his problems, big ones. But they are nothing compared to you morons. You are the ones debating what weapons are acceptable for killing children rather than putting forth real solutions that prevent attacks with ANY weapon.

    Oh nutster.  in your mind there are only 2 options.  Figure out a way to prevent any child from being attacked or do nothing. 

    We morons would like nothing more than to require guns to have a sensor that prevented the gun from firing when held by people who are insane.  Until then, we'd like, at the very least to make it a tad harder for the crazies to get their hands on weapons of mass destruction.
