Following the murder of 20 children in a school in Newton, CT, the National Rifle Association has made its position on the gun debate known: more guns are needed.
20-year old Adam Lanza had taken 3 of his mother’s guns and killed 27 people including 20 children, but the NRA still feels there are not enough guns.
NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre bashed the media during his speech and went on to say that schools need armed guards. LaPierre went on to say, “When you hear the glass breaking at 3 a.m. and you call 911, you won’t be able to pray hard enough for a gun in the hands of a good guy to get there fast enough.” He also said that it’s a double standard that we expect armed guards to protect people like the president, but not our children. Maybe because people hate the president and he gets death threats often, but children don’t? I knew I wasn’t going to agree with a word he said, calling for guns is never the answer. He also went on to do the infamous “blame video games.”
