We really hope it wasn't the NRA's intention to make them look better with their press conference following the Sandy Hook shooting.
Cuz according to the opinions roaring through the social media web, they FAILED… miserably.
Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre urged lawmakers to station armed police officers at every school by the time kids go back in the new year.
As he puts it:
"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."
He also made it a point to note that airports and banks are usually armed with properly-equipped guards, so why not schools!?
But then he didn't take any questions from reporters… (boo)
The press conference was interrupted multiple times by protestors shouting against the NRA, blaming them for the death of Newtown's children (see above).
Celebrities weighed in too, with some of them tweeting:
It's definitely a complicated topic with no black or white answer.
We just wish the NRA would truly engage in the conversation.
How do U feel about this??
