Shorter Wayne LaPierre & the NRA: More Guns

The NRA managed to clean the foam off of Wayne LaPierre’s mouth and trot him out on the Friday before Christmas to tell us:

“There exists in this country a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells, and sows, violence against its own people.”

Can it be that the NRA has actually done some reflection and realized what an awful group of people that they are? Well, sadly, no.

LaPierre was telling us that the entertainment industry is actually the one to blame, though I don’t recall anyone holding up a 7-11 store with a DVD of Good Fellas, but I could be wrong. My video game history stopped somewhere around Super Mario, and I don’t recall that being the key to a bloody crime wave, either. Music videos? Don’t get me started on what happened to the Em in MTV.

“I call on Congress today to act immediately, to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every school—and to do it now, to make sure that blanket of safety is in place when our children return to school in January.”

So for the NRA that idea is win-win: more gun sales and steal public money from schools. Now, I might be wrong about this, but it seems to me that there were on-duty police at Virginia Tech when someone who was known to be nuts legally bought guns and ammo and went on a killing spree. I believe that there might have been guards at Columbine Highschool, but my memory on that day is fuzzy lo these many years and deaths later.

But the larger point here is that the NRA wants to see armed guards in public places protecting so-called innocent civilians until such a time as those toddlers are old enough to squeeze off a round or two themselves. I might mention to Mr. LaPierre that outside of those video games he is blaming, I cannot think of a single time an armed citizen has brought down a mass killer.

“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

No, actually the best idea is for there to be no bad guys with guns, Wayne, but that might hurt sales.

UPDATE: while Wayne LaPierre was bleating and dithering another massacre occured.

Keep f***ing that chicken, Wayne.

    jesus fuckballs on ice whatta goddamn whiny fucking sociopath who should be kicked inna balls whenever he appears in public. Nidal Hasan went onto a gorram ARMY BASE and killed a buncha people. Wayne won’t be happy until everyone’s running around aremd to the teeth EVEN TO BREAKFAST because you never know when your spouse might turn around and spray a few rounds your way for burning the toast.

    Note, too, Australia sells about as many violent video games per capita as the US…note distinct lack of gun related masscres there.

    Um, Canadians and Europeans and Australians and well many other non-USAns also watch those same movies and play those same video games. LaPierre has LaRocks in his head.

    Don’t laugh at assault rifles for toddlers, Wayne LaPierre probably has wet dreams about arming fetuses so they can protect themselves against dirty librul abortionists.

    Sorry, I apologize. Using Wayne LaPierre’s name in the same sentence with the term “wet dreams” is unconscionable.

    Maybe they should start by banning their own video games.

    And on an earlier post regarding Mr. Biden leading the effort to lead a group that “will produce concreat proposals…’

    Wasn’t it Biden, the same brain trust who was put in charge of the ‘Middle Class Task Force’ to supposedly find solutions to this countries housing crisis.

    How’s that going for ya,
