    Wayne LaPierre Wants America To Be An Armed Camp

     

    Updated Blog Post HERE.

    Wayne Lapierre gave his first press conference since the gun massacre. It was a bizarre press conference. Mr. Lapierre came out swinging. Neither he nor his group has accepted any responsibility or causality for the killings in the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. The full text of his speech reads like that of a guilty person deflecting and living in an alternate state of reality.

    Immediately after the press conference, former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said on MSNBC about the press conference "It was a missed opportunity”.

    The cynic in me believes that Mr. Lapierre’s speech is intended to stoke a subliminal message in the psyche of the American citizenry, to further create armed regions, schools, hospitals, grocery stores, etc., and with that increase the gun business at large. In effect, use this tragedy to plant messages that if it pays off, will payoff big with a frightened population looking for protection at all financial or social cost.
