    NRA’s Lapierre’s News Conference Regarding Sandy Hook

    Mr. Lapierre made more common sense in his news conference today than Mr. Obama did in his regarding the challenge of identifying potential solutions for increased protection of our young and precious children while attending US educational facilities.

    Mr. Lapierre took on the Motion Picture Association other wise known as Hollywood (violent movie producers and actors), The Entertainment Software Association (violent video game and music videos), Rap artists that produce violent and suggestive recordings and especially the news media that has remained silent regarding the violence that these associations produce and the lack of reporting that these people and business entities may have on young people. Especially those that are mentally impaired and are not properly nurtured and supervised by their parents.

    Unfortunately, our liberal, progressive and biased news media seems to be at the “heart” of the problem using silence regarding the cause end and over and slanted reporting on the realization end when any and all of these human atrocities happen. Guilty, Guilty and Guilty.

    Mr. Lapierre also took on the Politicians for allowing the above violence to be funneled and available to our youth by overlooking and allowing the potential violence that it causes.

    • He and others have also recommended having armed security at every school which would cost about 5 billion assuming $40,000 per the 132,000 schools in the US. Since we have had 386 school shooting deaths in the last 20 years or just under 20 per year the cost would be over $250,000,000 per life saved. That's assuming you could prevent every death which isn't reasonable. I think the money could be better spent on other life saving projects like cancer research.
