I saw these videos posted over at Digby's place earlier this week and thought they were worth sharing. For anyone that believes NRA head Wayne LaPierre's argument that "a good guy with a gun" necessarily makes anyone any safer, maybe they should give this report from ABC a look.

I don't have much to add to what either Brad Friedman or Digby had to say in either of their posts on this, so just go follow the links here for more on why LaPierre's solution with just putting more guns in more people's hands to prevent mass shootings is not likely to do an ounce of good.
