The National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre took to the microphones today in what is the gun organization’s first official comment since the Sandy Hook tragedy last Friday.
In a feeble attempt to take the focus off of guns, LaPierre threw spaghetti at the wall just to see what would stick.
He blamed everything from Hollywood, to video games, and music videos in order to explain the horrendous tragedy that took place a week ago in Newtown, Connecticut.
He blamed everything except guns.
In fact, LaPierre spoke at length about the need for firearms in schools and even went so far as to suggest that, had Principal Dawn Hochsprung been armed, she would have been able to stop Adam Lanza’s killing spree.
“The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” LaPierre proclaimed.
Sadly, just hours before LaPierre took to the stage to argue for more guns, the nation logged yet another mass shooting. This time along a rural Pennsylvania road.
Early reports say four people were killed and several more injured, including two state troopers.
The gunman is believed to have started his rampage by shooting a woman who was decorating a church for a children’s Christmas party.
No, Mr. LaPierre. The last thing this country needs is more guns on the streets.
