How the NRA Stole Christmas

I think that the most rational short term solution to the school violence issue is to have trained armed security in schools. As a long term solution, I think that a large part of the American people have lost the spirit that was present when this country was established, that of individual freedom and the responsibility that must be a part of that. The behavior of some politicians have for some time been echoing the drumbeat of "money for nothing" (my apologies to Mark Knopfler), and a lot of people have been gullible enough to believe it. As long as this continues to happen, large groups of people will follow the Pied Piper into the sea to their doom. I am moving out of the country to Texas.

A day late and a dollar short best describes the National Rifle Association’s inept response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. As the nation’s most powerful defender of the second amendment (the right to bear arms), the NRA displayed cowardly silence for more than a week following the shooting. Then four days before Christmas, the NRA held ghoulish 30-minute press conference America would have been better off never witnessing.

Contrary to the banners held up by protesters at the event that read “ the NRA kills children,” it doesn’t but the NRA does do VERY bad public relations....
