By PHILIP ELLIOTT, The ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON -- The nation's largest gun-rights lobby is calling for armed police officers to be posted in every American school to stop the next killer "waiting in the wings."


The National Rifle Association broke its silence Friday on last week's shooting rampage at a Connecticut elementary school that left 26 children and staff dead.

The group's top lobbyist, Wayne LaPierre, said at a Washington news conference that "the next Adam Lanza," the man responsible for last week's mayhem, is planning an attack on another school.

"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," LaPierre said.

He blamed video games, movies and music videos for exposing children to a violent culture day in and day out.

Sylvia Comp Sebastian Such a plan has already been tried, "and it did not work," said Josh Sugarmann, executive director of the Violence Policy Center, and a native of Newtown, Conn.

"In fact there were TWO armed law enforcement agents present at Columbine High School duri
ng the assault by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold that left 15 dead and 23 wounded. They twice engaged and fired at Eric Harris in an effort to stop the shooting, but were unsuccessful because they were outgunned by the assault weapons wielded by the two teens."

The era of Republican obstructionism is about to end.


    “The Mayans were right, as it turns out, when they predicted the world would end in 2012. It was just a select world: the G.O.P. universe of arrogant, uptight, entitled, bossy, retrogressive white guys. Just another vanishing tribe that fought the cultural and demographic tides of history. Someday, it will be the subject of a National Geographic special, or a Mel Gibson movie, where archaeologists piece together who the lost tribe was, where it came from, and what happened to it.

    The experts will sift through the ruins of the Reagan Presidential Library, Dick Cheney’s shotgun casings, Orca poll monitoring hieroglyphics, remnants of triumphal rants by Dick Morris on Fox News, faded photos of Clint Eastwood and an empty chair, and scraps of ancient tape in which a tall, stiff man, his name long forgotten, gnashes his teeth about the 47 percent of moochers and the ‘gifts’ they got. Instead of smallpox, plagues, drought and Conquistadors, the Republican decline will be traced to a stubborn refusal to adapt to a world where poor people and sick people and black people and brown people and female people and gay people count.” –  Maureen Dowd, in the New York Times.

The House goes Home for Christmas!   No Cliff Deal!  Things falling apart.
  • Radioman KansaSitty: GOP Disassemble
    And in that bill cutting foodstamps, meals on wheels and other safety net things? Starting to look like there's no leadership....or else there IS leadership and its WAY above John Boehner's pay grade!   He's being left out to dry I guess.
    I know the Tea Party sites are way down on Boehner for even talking to the black guy. They really wanna crash it. I think they're still pissed about the election and are irrational. And the TP big websites and Fox are in disarray and have lost their leadership, who wanted no part of this insanity. And they're like deer in the headlights...they don't know what to do.

    There's no one on the GOP side who has enough support OR IS WILLING TO STICK HIS NECK OUT, to exercise any unifying leadership.

    I wonder if they've poisoned their Kool-Aid and are planning a mass suicide.
