NRA spox: 'Many in legacy media love mass shootings'

Emma Gonzalez & FL Survivors Blast NRA's Dana Loesch At Town Hall: 'You're Not Standing Up' For Us

Trump says he wouldn't want to tell his son that he has to go through an active-shooter drill.

He said the administration will continue to take steps to make schools safe.

The president yesterday reiterated the idea of arming some teachers in a series of tweets.

Trump, during a roundtable discussion on school shootings with state and local officials at the White House, said he had spoken to officials from the NRA, calling them "good people" and "patriots" who are "ready to do things". "If they truly cared, what they would do is protect them".

The NRA is a key sponsor of the conference, and until now largely quiet about the Parkland, Fl., high school shooting.

Dana Loesch, a radio and television personality and vocal supporter of the Second Amendment, took questions during a kind of dialogue CNN hosted in Sunrise, FL, in the wake of the school shooting in nearby Parkland last week.

Vice President Mike Pence told the audience at a conservative gathering outside Washington on Thursday that the "the safety of our nation's schools and our students" is a top priority for the Trump administration.

"The NRA is ready to do things".

As the CEO of the National Rifle Association since 1991, Wayne LaPierre has been front and center in the national debate about gun control, which has grown increasingly rancorous amid a rise in mass shootings during his tenure, particularly in schools.

LaPierre made his big debut on the stage at CPAC Thursday morning, a little after Trump's tweet, and slammed the media for its coverage of the tragedy.

He said opponents of gun rights want to "sweep under the carpet" the failure of school safety, families, "and even the unbelievable failure of the FBI" to prevent the shootings. Under his leadership, the NRA has come out against a ban on assault rifles and universal background checks; LaPierre had previously supported the latter initiative in the late '90s. Crying white mothers are ratings gold to you and many in the legacy media. "Each and every member of the National Rifle Association mourns the loss of the innocent".

"It's just too simple to look at those people and say, 'My god.' They're doing Wayne LaPierre's bidding, they're doing the NRA D.C. lobbyist bidding, and those people are doing the bidding of financiers, extraordinarily wealthy people, who are making money off of these tragedies to sell more military-style guns".

"Their goal is to eliminate the second amendment and our firearms freedoms, so they can eradicate all individual freedoms", he said.

Amid an open and emotional public conversation about gun control following another mass shooting, National Rifle Association head Wayne LaPierre delivered a fiery, divisive speech blasting the media, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and "political elites" for exploiting the tragedy for "political gain".

The conservative Breitbart website also ran a story expressing concern about the background checks, saying they would lead to a national gun registry.

"Schools must be the most hardened targets in this country", LaPierre said.
