For days now folks have been waiting with baited breath for the head crack pot in charge to speak. Today he spoke and now we know for sure, the dialogue MUST begin about the power the NRA wields for the gun manufacturers they protect.
At first viewing of the video above, I was kind of annoyed, because I felt like they are exploiting the issue. You can best believe that the next time Jamie Foxx (or any of the people in the video above) are offered a Tarantino role that involves using a gun to shoot up a lot of people - they will jump on it (can you say Django). However, after hearing the "good guy," "bad guy" analogy today, I realize the people in the video are right, if we don't demand an end to gun violence, it won't happen.
Who gets to determine who is "good" and/or "bad?" Will we continue to work off of the current stereotypes? If so, we will continue to get what we already got... people... innocents... children... shot dead with guns.
NRA Press Conference: Armed Police Officers At Every School
The nation's largest gun-rights lobby is calling for armed police officers to be posted in every American school to stop the next killer "waiting in the wings."
The National Rifle Association broke its silence Friday on last week's shooting rampage at a Connecticut elementary school that left 26 children and staff dead.
The group's top lobbyist, Wayne LaPierre, said at a Washington news conference that "the next Adam Lanza," the man responsible for last week's mayhem, is planning an attack on another school.
"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gunHe blamed video games, movies and music videos for exposing children to a violent culture day in and day out.
is a good guy with a gun." LaPierre
