The NRA's Washington leadership has long been out of step with its members, and never has that been so apparent as this morning.
Instead of offering solutions to a problem they have helped create, they offered a paranoid, dystopian vision of a more dangerous and violent America where everyone is armed and no place is safe.
While they promote armed guards, they continue to oppose the most basic and common sense steps we can take to save lives - not only in schools, but in our movie theatres, malls, and streets. Enough.
The CEO of US gun lobby the NRA has defended his comments after the Sandy Hook shootings. In his first TV interview since the tragedy, Wayne LaPierre repeated: "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun".
