Here NRA leadership explains how to make Americans safer.
President Obama said that to honor those who died in the Navy Yard shooting, “we’re going to have to change.”
“We don’t take the basic common sense actions to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people,” he said.
Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, said Sunday on NBC that the Navy Yard shooting exposed security gaps, not problems with the country’s gun laws. He called for adding more armed guards at military bases and said more trained military officials should have access to firearms to protect workers at vulnerable places such as the Navy Yard.
“The problem is there weren’t enough good guys with guns. When the good guys with guns got there, it stopped,” Mr. LaPierre said.
