The liberal media is ablaze this morning with righteous indignation that we’ve waited a week for the National Rifle Association (NRA) to come out with a statement about the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy and all we got was “more guns”. The mouthpiece for the organization, Wayne LaPierre says we need armed personnel in every school and he’s willing to help mobilize the posse.
Think about this a minute folks. When you think you’re going to die of a heart attack, do you expect your accountant to come forward and say he’ll perform open heart surgery on you? When you’re trying to limit your tax liability, do you expect your cardiac specialist to give you a good plan? Wayne LaPierre and the leadership of the NRA don’t know squat about loving your fellow-man, treating mental illness or positively influencing the many pressures in American society that drive people to the edge. Wayne and his leadership know how to blow your head off. So it is perfectly natural that when schools find themselves vulnerable to armed lunatics, Wayne offers his expertise. Expecting Wayne to advocate for gun control is like expecting a heart surgeon to advise a homeopathic remedy to blocked arteries.
Let’s be honest. I don’t like the idea of armed cop-wanna-be’s roaming the halls of our schools but IF that is the solution the American people want, who better to devise a plan than Wayne LaPierre and his organization? Plus, the NRA has an entire gun manufacturing industry behind them to provide the necessary “tools” to every Barney Fife out there who wants to protect your little ones.
So folks, don’t be angry at the NRA. They’re trying to help this situation the only way they know how: kill the killers before they kill you.
