The NRA blames Hollywood, Music, Media, the Courts & more for violenceWayne LaPierre, National Rifle Association executive vice president, blamed everyone in America except gun owners for creating a culture of violence, in a lengthy statement to the press one week after the shooting that killed 20 children and six adults at a school in Newtown, Conn.

Hollywood, video games, music the courts and more were all blamed by LaPierre who went on to note:  “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” he said at a Washington press event, adding, “With all the money in the federal budget can’t we afford to put a police officer in every single school?”

LaPierre was interupted twice by protesters screaming that the NRA has “blood on its hands” and holding signs reading “NRA KILLING OUR KIDS.”
