NRA responds to Feinstein assault weapons ban

News
National Rifle Association (NRA) Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre speaks on December 21, 2012, in Washington, DC, on the one-week anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown, Connecticut. The United States' most powerful pro-gun lobbying group, the National Rifle Association, called Friday for armed police or security guards to be deployed to every school in the country.'The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,' declared NRA vice-president Wayne LaPierre, in the group's first reaction since last week's massacre of 26 children and staff in an elementary school.

The National Rifle Association is not amused. Still, I was disappointed their statement didn't include the words, "from my cold, dead hands."

Senator Feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades. It's disappointing but not surprising that she is once again focused on curtailing the Constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental health system. The American people know gun bans do not work and we are confident Congress will reject Senator Feinstein's wrong-headed approach.
