How the NRA Stole Christmas

Compare Wayne LaPierre's comments to those of Jerrold Nadler whose press release makes two wild claims: “The NRA’s response to the Newtown massacre is both ludicrous and insulting, and they are fundamentally out of step with the American people on the issue of gun violence." What is senseless or ludicrous about defending school children from mentally deranged criminals? Most Americans do not agree that gun control would make much of a contribution to school safety. Nadler is a gun control fanatic and it would be a waste of time and energy to dialogue with him.

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....
