First Word: NRA says to get more armed cops in schools

This ‘press conference’ was nothing short of a television commercial. They decided not to take questions, advocated for armed guards in each school in the country, and attacked the media as one of the main culprits in the tragedy of Newtown. So, all in all, a winning performance for the NRA. Absolutely no mention of background checks, assault weapons ban, or a constructive mention of mental health issues and ability to obtain firearms. As I said in my earlier post/article – even responsible gun owners will tell you, there is no need for semi-automatic and automatic weapons. As Tamron Hall of MSNBC noted today: “You don’t have to be anti-gun to be anti-assault weapons.”
