The National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre in a press conference called for more guns to end gun violence. LaPierre went on to blame video games and the media. But definitely not guns! That can’t be. Meanwhile, during the NRA presser which was prompted by the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, another mass shooting took place with devastating results.
While LaPierre uttered the words, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” a guy with a gun killed at least four people and injured five more in a shooting spree in Pennsylvania. Two state troopers are among the injured with at least one reportedly wearing a bullet proof vest – which protected him from, “guns.” A third trooper was reportedly injured in a crash involving the suspect.
WPXI’s Courtney Brennan tweeted that the shooter “was ‘mobile’ at one point and “went up and down a rural road and shot victims.”
The NRA lobbies on behalf of “stand your ground” laws and offers insurance to members to pay for the legal costs of shooting people in “self-defense.” What would be a better alternative instead of a bullshit, Sarah Palin-type ‘blame the lamestream media’ justification, would be to offer to pay for the funeral costs of the Sandy Hook Elementary School victims as well as the four dead corpses in Pennsylvania.
