William A. Jacobson @ Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion:
Wayne LaPierre, head of the NRA, conducted a press conference today.
He did not back down on the issue of gun control. He ripped into the media, politicians, the culture and the failure to protect our children. LaPierre called for a police officer in every school, and pledged NRA resources and members for training and implementation.
The line of the press conference was “”The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
The press conference was interrupted twice by Code Pink
Needless to say, Twitter went crazy. Here are some of the more restrained tweets:
