WASHINGTON (NBC) -

 

The National Rifle Association broke its silence Friday morning on last week's shooting rampage at a Connecticut elementary school that left 26 children and staff dead.

Wayne LaPierre, the Executive Vice President, NRA said, "The only way, the only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

Twice during the news conference, LaPierre was interrupted by banner carrying protesters blaming the NRA for increasing gun violence and opposing stricter gun laws.

LaPierre says his organization will fund a committee to look into the possibility of posting armed guards at all of the nation's schools.
