"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," LaPierre said. "In a race to the bottom, many conglomerates compete with one another to shock, violate, and offend every standard of civilized society, by bringing an even more toxic mix of reckless behavior and criminal cruelty right into our homes."
If you are as disgusted as I am by this NRA kneejerk response, contribute to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. On a more positive note, the campaign reports that:
"people from all over the country have reached out to demand change and your support is helping to make this happen. On Tuesday December 18th, we led a press conference on Capitol Hill with more than 20 families sharing their stories of the mass shootings in Newtown, Tucson, Aurora, Columbine, Salt Lake City, and at Virginia Tech. The conference was seen by millions of people across the country.
Then we delivered a letter to the White House and Congress signed by victims of gun violence who are asking for meaningful dialogue and swift action.
The response from the White House and Congress is the breakthrough this country needs and deserves. Your support helps us continue our critical work and keep the pressure on Congress to end the gun violence in this country once and for all."
So far, @TheOliverStone and attention-grabber @BrettEastonEllis have not tweeted their response.
