NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre going on the defensive at the National Rifle Association’s first public comments on the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

LaPierre saying the organization withheld comment until today out of respect for the families of the 26 victims.

He offered this proposal:

LaPierre says there is a pool of millions of retired police officers, military and security professionals that could be “deployed” immediately.

His speech was interupted several times by protestors.

LaPierre also said the NRA will introduce the National School Shield Program, an educational and training emergency response program led by former Congressman Asa Hutchison.

He called for every school in America to provide armed security as soon as school resumes after the Christmas break.

However, he failed to suggest a way to pay for such a major project, and he did not take questions at this much awaited press conference.
