    NRA Response to Connecticut School Shootings

    Wayne LaPierre spoke about the National Rifle Association’s reaction to the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. In his remarks he called for congressional action to fund armed law enforcement officers in all public schools, and criticized the nation’s entertainment industry for creating a culture of violence. His remarks were interrupted by protestors favoring gun control policies. He did not answer questions despite the event’s billing as a news conference.
