NRA Recommends Yet Another Government Power Expansion

The National Rifle Association through its spokesman, Wayne LaPierre, tried to deflect attention from the Sandy Hook Massacre and the fact that gun deaths will soon exceed highway fatalities in this county by stating that to them, the only obvious solution to guns being used in the schools is to have armed security guards at those schools.

Once again, the tax and spend conservatives see the only way out of their problem is by the government hiring on tens of thousands of new employees. LaPierre did not say what offsets to governmental spending would be used to pay for this unprecedented expansion of government power.

In a post speech follow-up LaPierre indicated that it shouldn’t cost all that much as “urban” youths could be used as security guards because they are already proficient with weapons, possess their own weapons, don’t mind shooting people at all, and should be willing to work for minimum wage.

  1. I watched his speech, and i find it fascinating how the right ALWAYS blames the “media” for this ill or that. I’m not even exposed to a 10% of what you guys are there o the ground and i’m sick to death of hearing this same whine over and over again.

    • Is the media that they blame for all ills called Fox News? Because it’s pretty much the only one they watch.
