Letter: No profit in a man without a gun

How about that Wayne LaPierre’s, Energizer bunny shill for the weapons and ammunition industry. Wayne now tells us that “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.” Wayne’s creative solution to the Sandy Hook killings is to put armed guards in all our schools. Wayne. Wayne, the guy who says he worries about the government taking our guns. Wayne now wants government agents in our schools searching our kids for weapons. Surely Wayne knows that his industry benefactors are the first to benefit from Sandy Hook, and Columbine, and all the other mass murder shootings. Each one creates a new outpouring of weapons sales. Why would his dear industry benefactors want to do anything to reduce their profits? Why would Wayne? Wayne has yet to think of a bad guy without a gun. You just can’t make a profit on that.
