Child Murderer LaPierre Speaks Out
I told you so. The NRA's idea of safe, secure schools is to have more guns in the school. I knew Wayne LaPierre was going to say this. But what else would you expect from a mass murderer? He will not now, nor will he ever, accept responsibility for mad men running around with semi-automatic weapons, even though it is his fascist group which is most responsible for these guns being available to any young, white, fanatic, survivalist, home-schooled, deranged male who wants one. LaPierre is to the NRA what Goebbels was to the Third Reich...the propaganda minster who will bring down a reign of terror on any politician who dares to disagree with him. The gutless, castrated Republicans who sit in Congress won't dare challenge the Reich Minister for fear their heads will be handed to them on a plate. The NRA's power over the legislature and citizenry is all-encompassing; and until someone has the balls to stand up to this tyranny, our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will always be subordinated by the right of gun nuts to buy AK-47s like they were candy bars. Everywhere I go now--the mall, my granddaughter's school, a basketball game, a restaurant--I look around warily, hoping some insane shooter isn't about to pull out an AR-15. Is this the America you want? It's not the one I want. But it IS the America LaPierre dreams of. LaPierre makes millions leading the NRA (Nuts with Rifles Association), but it is blood money. And he will burn in hell for it. Here's what the Reich Minister said today, "In a race to the bottom, media conglomerates compete with one another to shock, violate and offend every standard of civilized society by bringing an ever-more-toxic mix of reckless behavior and criminal cruelty into our homes—every minute of every day of every month of every year. Part of the problem in protecting schools, he also said, is the designation of gun-free school zones. The zones "tell every insane killer in America that schools are the safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk," he said. Can you believe this guy?? He wants schools to be "gun-friendly zones." Would you send your kid to such a school?? And he blames the media for gun violence. It is not the media which brings "an ever-more-toxic mix of reckless...and criminal cruelty into our homes"; it is GUNS that do this. Thousands more people die of accidental shootings in the home than burglars who are killed by homeowners during a home invasion. In fact, the instances of home invasions being stopped by a homeowner wielding a gun are so miniscule that they are statistically insignificant. I agree with New York mayor Bloomberg who said, "Their (the NRA's) press conference was a shameful evasion of the crisis facing our country," said Bloomberg. "Instead of offering solutions to a problem they have helped create, they offered a paranoid, dystopian vision of a more dangerous and violent America where everyone is armed and no place is safe."
