"Only 'A Good Guy With A Gun' Can Stop School Shootings" Says NRA Executive VP Wayne LaPierre

WRONG! The over 300 million good people who are not NRA members will eventually succeed in getting guns off of our streets and THEY will stop school shootings, not vigilantes with guns.

While more police isnt necessarily a bad idea, a better idea is to get rid of as many guns as possible.

Saying that last week's mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., could have been prevented or stopped if there had been armed, trained security personnel on site, officials of the National Rifle Association on Friday called for Congress to appropriate funds to put police officers in every American school.

"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," said Wayne LaPierre, NRA's executive vice president.

The NRA also said it is launching a "National School Shield" training program to help — at no cost — schools train security personnel and develop security plans.

And, NRA officials blamed the news media for focusing on what they view as the wrong issue — guns — rather than violent video games and the nation's mental health care programs.
