Thread: NRA Press Conference transcript
Since most of the broadcast networks went to commercials in the middle of the NRA press conference, here is the transcript of the press conference for those who wish to view it.

Thank you for posting the transcript. I was getting ready to start looking for it.
Very well said
I wasn't impressed by the blame shifting. Nor was I impressed by the call for the fed.gov to appropriate funds for security measures which is the realm of the states as per Article 1, Section 8 and the Tenth Amendment. Strange how the NRA seeks to defend one part of the Constitution by asking the fed.gov to act beyond enumerated powers. I'm done with them. My membership ends at the end of this month. I joined the GOA a couple of days ago instead.

“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” LaPierre should have stopped right there and concluded the press conference.
The Newtown case is the worst. We have otherwise naive antigunners blabbing about Bushmasters by name.
I got a different take from this. I believe he offered something we can do Today. Not after we talk about it, not after people are trained up, but something we can do now. Put Armed LEOs in the schools until the rest of us get it together enough to take care of them. Go after the crazys by all means, but get a guardmount going. I do like the idea of the Minuteman Program.
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington
I agree about the armed Leo or ex military who need some kind of job, or volunteers, as long as they are certified. I also know front sight is willing to train 3 teachers from each school to properly stop any kind of malice attack FOR FREE, yet no one is jumping on it. Why? I would feel comfortable with that as well as anyone else that has any sense, i myself would love to go train at front sight, especially for FREE. From what i understand their training surpasses any training a Leo gets.
