Bloomberg: NRA Press Conference Was 'Shameful'

?6

NEW YORK -- New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the National Rifle Association's call for armed guards in schools represents a paranoid vision of America.

Bloomberg has long called for stricter gun control laws. He says Friday's press conference by the nation's largest gun lobby group was "a shameful evasion of the crisis facing our country."

The NRA says posting armed police officers in every school could stop the next killer "waiting in the wings."

The NRA's proposal comes a week after a gunman fatally shot 26 people in a Newtown, Conn., elementary school. The victims included 20 children.

9. How do you shame the shameless?


It's too bad that the NRA couldn't be caught under the RICO act, but I am only dreaming.
