Wayne LaPierre - Twitter calls Wayne LaPierre crazy, repugnant, a tool and more

Earlier today on “Meet the Press” NRA spokesman Wayne LaPierre  told the people of the world who disagreed with him to call him crazy. They have and more.

After the Newtown school shooting, Lapierre and members of the NRA devised a simple solution: Every school in America should have armed guards. Sounds like a plan! If a gun-toting marauder blasts his way into an elementary school, the armed guards will surely dispatch him with cinema-style ease.

Only the facts don’t add up. Columbine had an armed guard, and the New York Times pointed out that trained police officers, while trying to take out a gunman in the Empire State Building, shot nine civilians in the pursuit.

So for LaPierre’s plan to work each school in America would not merely require an armed guard but a breathtakingly proficient sharp shooter. Each school would need its own Mr. Harrow from “Boardwalk Empire.”

Americans believe the NRA greases the economic tracks for gun makers, and provides them political cover. That’s no secret. Buy nobody thinks the NRA is in the business of protecting school children. So their message sounds crazy and Wayne LaPierre, I think in a very objective way, kinda looks a little crazy, and Twitter thinks that and more. The feedback so far on LaPierre is below, the best tweets unsurprisingly coming from Piers Morgan.

    1. Wayne Lapierre’s behavior is execrable. When he has a good day at the office he insures people die through Gun Violence that he glorifies and promotes by lying about the right to bear arms as a basic constitutional right.
