GUNS: History proves NRA’s thinking is flawed

How can the NRA even suggest that more guns will solve the problem of mass murders in this country?

If presidents Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, William McKinley and John F. Kennedy could be shot and killed, and Ronald Reagan injured, all while surrounded by the best armed guards in the world, then no amount of gun power will ever be enough to stop a determined lunatic.

More guns will not reduce these tragedies, only stricter gun laws.
