NRA's LaPierre Calls For "Armed Police Officers" In Every School In The Nation
National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre made a statement today in reaction to last week's mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Conn. LaPierre called for armed security at America's schools saying "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."
"How many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of fame from a national media machine that rewards them with wall-to-wall attention and a sense of identity that they crave, while provoking others to try to make their mark," LaPierre said. "A dozen more killers, a hundred more? How can we possibly even guess how many, given our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill?"
