NRA press conferece: Seth Meyers and other celebs tweet their reaction

Posted on

Wayne LaPierre, the president of the National Rifle Association, did not take questions after his press conference today, the first public response from the powerful gun lobby after the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Conn. one week ago. But the public reaction during and immediately after his speech was loud, especially from celebrities, who couldn’t help but weigh in on Twitter about the National Rifle Association’s response.

Check out some thoughts below from everyone from Bette Midler: “NRA says we need armed guards at every school. Well, since NRA IS SHILLING FOR THE FIREARMS INDUSTRY, this makes good sense for them,” to Seth Meyers and more.
