NRA's Wayne LaPierre Says 'Schools Must Be The Most Hardened Targets'
Feb 23, 2018, 03:36
"In the rush of calls for more government, they also revealed their true selves".
Trump may provide more detail on his gun control stance on Wednesday afternoon.
WHAT HE SAID: "I want to listen and then after we listen we're gonna get things done". We share a goal of safe schools, safe neighborhoods, and a safe country. He argued that was "more" than the Democratic Party or news organizations were doing.
Joe McMonigle, an analyst with Hedgeye Capital, said Thursday that Pence's comments show that the Trump administration is "walking down the road to deny the oil sanctions waiver at the next deadline in May".
LaPierre said he wishes "more had heeded my words" after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012, when he called for more security in schools. "Cowards won't go there. problem solved".
Mr Trump pushed for an offensive strategy, warning "defence alone won't work".
Some criminologists have questioned that reasoning, pointing out that some people who plan to commit mass shootings are prepared to die in the process.
"Our American freedoms could be lost and our country will be changed forever", he said.
"I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health". Trump said in the tweet. "Congress is in a mood to finally do something on this issue - I hope!"
Wayne LaPierre slammed critics of the gun lobby and accused them of exploiting last week's school shooting in Florida for political advantage.
As Donald Trump tries to find a safe political position on the issue, former President Barack Obama has made it clear where he stands.
"These intellectual elites think they're smarter than we are", said LaPierre. According to tax documents, the 68-year-old, who has led the NRA as its executive vice president and chief executive officer since 1991, took in more than $5 million in compensation in 2015. "People like to blame them". At the Conservative Political Action Conference on February 22, he said that liberal Democrats and the media were joined in a conspiracy to "eradicate all individual freedoms".
"We have resources available at anyone's disposal - if they want to reinforce their schools", Loesch said. He favors a ban on fully automatic weapons and "bump stock" devices, which turn manual firearms into automatic weapons; one was used in the Las Vegas mass shooting, resulting in 58 deaths and 851 injuries. The NRA has opposed legislation that would ban bump stocks, which were found on some of the rifles used by the gunman in the Las Vegas mass shooting a year ago.
The elites don't care, not one whit about America's school system.
It is not a coincidence that NRA boss Wayne LaPierre would be attacking the Federal Bureau of Investigation at CPAC. But when he arrived to speak, he reiterated his pitch for armed guards at schools and free firearms training of teachers. I don't believe that's going to happen. He called that "a very negative thing" and said he wouldn't want his own son participating.
In July 2015, following a shooting at a military recruitment center in Tennessee that left four Marines dead, Trump tweeted in all caps: "MILITARY LIVES MATTER! ATTACKS WOULD END!" Trump went on to add [VIDEO]. He also repeated the NRA refrain, "To stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun". "If they truly cared, they would protect them". I'm not saying that you love the tragedy, but I am saying that you love the ratings. You heard that town hall last night. "My first day. There's no more gun-free zones".
He said existing gun laws and regulations, if executed properly, would decrease instances of mass shootings.
