NRA statement on Sandy Hook shooting: Wayne LaPierre's astonishing response calls for more guns | Mail Online

      The National Rifle Association is taking no prisoners in its response to Sandy Hook.  NRA chief Wayne LaPierre rejected gun control, embraced armed guards in all schools and blamed the media for a culture of violence that results in video games like one called Kindergarten Killers which he showed to reporters at a DC presser.
     Surely the NRA knows some kind of new law is coming down the pike. They are likely hoping for the best by focusing on the other aspects of culture and mental health that contributed to the shooting that took 26 lives at a school, including 20 small children.

Of course the solution to too many guns is more guns, who doesn’t know that… it’s a ‘no brainer.’Right?

“What do the NRA AND Republican Party have in Common?”

A complete and utter disregard for seeing the way things really are, and instead trying to get reality to fit into their laughable idea of what America really is all about. Under their stewardship the Republican Party stands every chance of turning enough Americans off to Republicanism to make a Major Republican Party a thing of the past. They have let this complete dope named Sen. Eric Cantor, usurp the authority of Speaker John Boehner since 2010, to the point where Eric Cantor now has to stand next to Speaker John Boehner, in an attempt to make each other look statesman like, while the Country goes to hell in a hand basket. They couldn’t take a stance on sane Gun Control until the NRA finally told them what to think today. Again we can’t afford to let NRA financial support make us look like the ‘Gun Nut’ Party.

We, who care about the Republican Party, don’t want a ‘Coalition’ government in Congress that gives Tea Party types disproportionate say in the Fiscal Cliff and Gun Control legislative areas. The season of good tidings is over and Progressive thinkers have to now be allowed to rebuild the Republican Party. It’s time for, Tea Party members hiding in our Tent, backed by the likes of Koch bros. money, to get thrown overboard. Let them be forced to form their own Party. Republicanism can’t carry the weight of their insanity, i.e. even if it’s well funded insanity, any longer if we’re going to be taken seriously as a National Party. I’m going to reach out and I hope Republican leaders are ready to listen, and let people like myself help to rebuild this shattered mess that we’re left with called the Minor RINO Republican Party run by Eric Cantor types.

The NRA is making a serious blunder in my opinion. They do not understand how the massacre in Newtown coupled with their outrageous statement today have shaken millions of Americans -- across the political spectrum -- out of our slumber.

Many of us are trying to figure out how we can act to ensure that sensible gun laws (and no, not the eradication of guns) replace the Wild West that currently exists.

I do not need to measure my manhood by how I hold a rod of cold blue steel (double entendre intended) unlike these dangerous bozos who are obviously trying to compensate for something that is beyond a sane person’s comprehension.

Astonishing. Astonishing that media, and you, are copying the word choice of a Brit newspaper telling us how stupid we are. Astonishing. Simply astonishing.

Now let's thing back just a short time. Wasn't it just a few years back that our educational heros were telling us we needed cops in our schools? Now the NRA says the same thing, and it's astonishing. Simply astonishing.

If you do not agree with a law enforcement officer protecting your children. How about putting steel doors on schools and classrooms. Tougher gun laws are not an immmediate solution to protecting students from mentally ill criminals. More gun laws only have an effect on law abiding citizens.

How about a 100% tax on the purchase of every firearm, along with the purchaser agreeing to be finger printed, a sample of their dna put on file and a ballistic fingerprint of the firearm they purchase. On top of that, a $10 fee on the purchase of every bullet.

I love it. Mikey uses murdered kids to further his political agenda. There's nothing the Michael Moore look alike (and think alike)won't do. Very sad. This is a nation that is ripe for stupidity. Mikeys thrive in this environment. I'm thankful he is not in front of kids.

How about we hold people accountable for their actions. The weapon used to kill multiple children last week was not legally obtained by the killer. If you want to own a tool capable of causing seriuous bodily harm to another individual. You should be responsible for the safe keeping of that item so it does not fall into the wrong hands.

I think moats with lots of gators around our schools coupled with free swimming/survival courses are the thing of the future - and free gator skin shoes for all.

The NRA wouldn't even buy that -- puts the gators in harm's way.... never mind.

Surly the NRA knows that some kind of new law is coming down the pike. But not a national one necessarily.
All the "makers" realize the fallacious arguments for the new laws are based on emotions. All the states dominated by "takers" will pass some laws.

Wow, the idiotic comments here are amazing. Why is it that you do not want armed security protecting our children, but you want them in a bank, and in the subway, and just about anywhere else, other than where the potential victims are completely helpless. Instead you are willing to give up your rights that our forefathers fought hard for. Do you really trust the government that much. First we allow them to listen to our every word without a warrant (the Patriot Act for those who missed it). Now you are willing to let them disarm the citizens. What is next? You are so willing to be sheep. You would rather give up your freedom, and assume the bad guys will do the same.

We need to stop blaming the guns and put the blame where it belongs. People who own firearms need to be responsible for those firearms. If you believe a magazine that held more than 10 rounds killed those children, or a gun that held a magazine capable of holding 10 rounds, You need to stop and realize guns are more available to the general public than previously thought.

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. >From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'.

Let’s see, armed guards in every school as a viable solution ‘eh. Hmm, geez, I’m not sure if that would work or not. If only we had some sort of historic precedent that we could look at...

Oh, oh… wait a minute… I seem to have this vague recollection of an incident that occurred a while back in Colorado. Give me a moment… like most Americans I suffer from chronic memory loss...

Oh yeah, it’s coming to me now… that’s right… the year, 1999… the state, Colorado -- It was COLUMBINE!!

And despite the fact that there was an armed security officer at the school and another one nearby -- exactly what LaPierre argued on Friday was the answer to stopping "a bad guy with a gun"…well we all know what happened there -- 15 dead and 23 wounded...

WTF!!

Oh well… GUNS don’t kill people VIDEO GAMES do!!

LaPierre seems to be the only one making any sense. Guns are not the problem. Tragedies happen and sometimes it is not possible to stop them, but one thing is certain, if you disarm law abiding citizens there will be more tragedies.

N.R.A. Vice President, Wayne LaPierre:

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



So when Mr. LaPierre states “a good guy with a gun”, does he envision a Ted Nugent or a George Zimmerman in every school? Or, does he imagine a more fabled type of character like John Wayne or Roy Rogers?

Anonymous said...

And then we'll need some more armed guards to protect us from those armed guards, just in case the second armed guards don't protect us from the first armed guards, etc, etc.

It all makes perfect sense...

IF YOUR A FRIGGIN MORON!!

In my 'previous' life, I packed some heat pretty-much 24/7 and NEVER had any desire to shoot anyone. As a matter of fact,folks who knew I was packin' preferred to hang with me whenever a group of us would go out because they felt "safe". I never even thought twice about going to less than desirable locations because I knew that I could "sling some lead" if need be. Let's face it folks...the Police are a REACTIVE team. They generally show-up AFTER a crime has been committed. If you're comfortable cowering-down and giving your lunch money to some street thug then hey, knock yourself out. But please don't group or belittle those of us who DO choose to protect ourselves and our families with a firearm or two. We are NORMAL people with NORMAL values. Nothing more, nothing less.

There is no doubt in my mind that any of the people you mentioned would have acted appropriately to try and stop the tragedy in Newtown. Anyone of the millions of armed Americans would have acted to try and protect innocents from a madman intent on murder, but they weren't there. Only the madman was armed. In Texas teachers can be armed and if this had been true in Conn. perhaps this tragedy could have been averted. It is the crazy gun control obsession of the left that is responsible for these innocent children being unprotected and it is the left that has the blood of these innocents on its' hands.

Hey 12/21 @ 703 They already have the bullet fingerprinting in NYS it costs 35 million and its was used once, IVE already been fingerprinted and done everything the govt wants me to do.......How about doing all this to people on Welfare?????????? Once again MMM puts his political spin on it, hey MMM I bought 2 more pistols, how many guns do we have now.

The NRA and Lapierre have just shown that they they neither understand the problem nor empathesize with the families and the mood of the nation . They are seriously out of touch and gun control WILL happen . This last great taboo. Of matricide and slaughter of innocents is the last straw .


the proposed NRA solution was invoked at Columbine ,, How did THAT work for ya NRA ?????

If you want to see Horror that can be done to School Children than look at this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beslan_school_hostage_crisis

And think how that would play out in the U.S.

First thing that would Happen would be the Complete and Utter disregard for the No-Guns Allowed Policy. Then it all goes down hill from there.

The Bitter Truth is There needs to be an Armed Presence in the Schools..I am not Talking about the Full Battle Dressed Sentry at the Door but in the Building.

The NRA was correct EVERY Washington Official who has a title gets armed protection So why not the Kids in your School??

Genocide could never happen in our country. that only happened in the olden days when everyone lived in black and white and there was class warfare with political power struggles. Today we are too cultured and smart to let it happen to us. I will gladly give up our guns if it saves just one drug dealing child or thug in a hoodie innocently eating skittles with burgles tools.

Costs of Armed Gaurds in Nation's Schools: Is an estimated 6 Billion plus so economically speaking will the NRA put its money where its mouth is and help finance a school security program?

Secondly, you've put the delivery system - Guns capable of mass destruction inside each school - how long before that goes wrong?

Mayor Graham said on 'Hotline' that he thought the idea was wrong headed, "I love those people who think armed security in the schools is a good idea."

The Mayor's right, it's a really bad idea, but would make the NRA even more money.

Mikey, don't forget about all those 100k union pensions after 20 years of sitting in schools waiting for insane individuals to come through the door! Sure you don't want a shot at those bucks?

Six billion? Think of all the abortions you could buy with that kind of scratch!

Anonymous said...

A review of the posts shows two things. The people who are screaming for more laws are doing just that, screaming. The people who are avocating that we think, are doing just that. Reread the posts. You will draw the same conclusion.

Mikey, since when has cost been a concern of yours for anything?

8:50 "Understanding" does not mean one must lose their ability to reason. You are obviously very afraid and very uninformed. Try to calm down and during this Christmas season, go to some parties with different kinds of folks. Talk with them. Get some different ideas.

Some of you earlier guys need new writers. Hysteria isn't real funny, nor is it convincing. I realize this is the age of non-reason but you gots ta come up with real stuff.

Dan Francis said...

Funny in an ironic sick perverted sort of way: Most GOPer-Rightwingnuts hate foodstamps (nasty entitlement), most other government programs (also nasty entitlements), but love the idea that everyone, anyone in fact is intitle to a have a gun, no matter what. Whether it's a concealed gun or not, or whether other controls are in place or not, matters not.

... We must allow anyone to have a gun - it's their entitlement ...

One Q: why are most GOPer-RWers scared of government - our system, I seriously wonder. Must be pee-pee envy???

Is this about protecting our children or taking guns out of the hands of citizens?

Some sort of beefed up security in our schools sounds good to me. But I'm a simple man.

Dannie quit slandering most GOPers!
We don't say you have a right to be given a gun, we say you have a right to own one.

But the common denominator in every one of these massacres and the guy that took out the ambulance guy in the Cape too, is that the bat shit crazy guy that did it should have been institutionalized befor they had the chance. But you don't want that to happen because you would lose too many librul voters.

To own a gun is second amendment right.
To collect foodstamps for whatever reason is, yes an entitlement.

It wasn't a gun law or a seriously troubled young man who got much less help than he needed that did the damage, it was his stupid mother's fault.

Yep and that right was almost 250 years ago and when they wrote it GUNS were single shot NOT automatic weapons with multiple clips capable of blowing away 26 INNOCENT children and teachers in 10 seconds.

so get REAL ban automatic weaponry designed for slaughter .These sick gunnuts have no basis in reality and like the sicko mom who had weaponry in the home with a mentallly ill kid they ONLY give a shit about themselves . Giun control now

Automatic weapons are already banned.............Except by the Govt.
