How the NRA Stole Christmas

Condemning Mr. LaPierre for waiting a week out of respect for the murdered children and their families is appalling. Furthermore poor public speaking skills do not make him an "American Psycho". I'm certain that your educational qualifications are much higher than mine, but even I know about the fallacy of an ad hominem argument. Common civility was the reason for the week of silence before the NRA response, and should preclude the use of ad hominem attacks as well.

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....
