Gun Violence NRA’s stance after tragedy an embarrassment

NRA spokesman's news conference not satisfactory.
Posted on Dec. 28, 2012 at 12:00 a.m.

I, along with millions of others, looked forward to NRA spokesman Wayne LaPierre’s Friday news conference. Just maybe the NRA would finally agree to a sensible reassessment of gun violence in our society. I agree with one of LaPierre’s main talking points: That we identify and get help for the mentally disturbed in our society.

After LaPierre’s Friday news conference, and the appearance of NRA leaders on many Sunday talk shows, I had to wonder where real illness exists. The kind of insane, irresponsible remedy put forth by them should be an embarrassment to every reasonable, responsible NRA member. The kind of nonsense proposed is like fighting fire with gasoline. As someone commented: It’s like telling someone with lung cancer that the best thing they can do is smoke more.

 In this Saturday, July 19, 2014 photo, displaced Christians who fled the violence in Mosul, pray at Mar Aframa church in the town of Qaraqoush on the outskirts of Mosul, Iraq. The message played over loudspeakers gave the Christians of Iraq's second-largest city until midday Saturday to make a choice: convert to Islam, pay a tax or face death. By the time the deadline imposed by the Islamic State extremist group expired, the vast majority of Christians in Mosul had made their decision. They fled.
