Did NRA Misfire With Its Response to Newtown ?
The NY Post describes the speech as a tone-deaf rant about the need for more guns at a time when the national mood has been affected by the outrageous events just a week before in Connecticut.
It's not that all of what Mr. LaPierre said was not true...and he made very valid points about he coarsening of the culture and culpability of media in that.
It was an in-your-face push back at the wrong time, by the wrong person.
