Wayne LaPierre on Meet the Press

Wayne LaPierre(Community Matters) “If it’s crazy to call for armed officers in our schools to protect our children, then call me crazy. … I think the American people think it’s crazy not to do it. It’s the one thing that would keep people safe. … I said what I honestly thought and … what hundreds of millions of people all over this country believe will actually make a difference.”

Seriously, NRA? Hundreds of millions? As in 2/3 or more of the USA’s population? This is part of the problem – unrealistic perspective.

The NRA has 4mm members. To put this in perspective, the AARP has 40mm members. Not dismissing the important role NRA once played in protecting 2nd amendment rights but their proposal and their extreme tone deafness do not predict well for the organization’s relevance going forward.
