On Thursday, in an exclusive interview with CNN, National Rifle Association (NRA) President David Keene responded to widespread public criticism of his colleague Wayne LaPierre’s passionate proposal that armed guards be placed in all United States schools with a less combative “clarification” of sorts.

Today Reuters has published a story indicating that three New Jersey policemen have been shot by a gunman who apparently arrived unarmed at a police station but managed to grab a gun there.

This writer has previously suggested that LaPierre and NRA members and supporters do not seem to have considered the possibility of such “good guy- bad-guy” gun-grabbing outcomes. One wonders whether they may be more inclined to consider such outcomes now.

The Reuters article says local TV news reported that the suspected gunman was killed in an exchange of gunfire at the police station in Gloucester Township, New Jersey, about 16 miles from Philadelphia. The suspect had been brought in for a domestic incident, according to the TV report.

It is unclear whether or not the gun used by the suspect was taken from one of the officers shot, one of their colleagues or someone else at the police station – like a school guard there for training, for example.

Gloucester Deputy Police Chief David Harkins is simply reported to have said, "A violent struggle occurred while the suspect was being processed."

The man was apparently able to grab a gun during this struggle and then opened fire. He was being processed for a domestic violence incident.

Stepping back, albeit marginally, from LaPierre’s insistence on the deployment of armed guards in all United States schools, Keene said on Thursday that schools should decide for themselves how they want to protect their children.

He said some may choose to use police officers or private security guards on their premises.

However, the CNN report does not indicate that he suggested any measures to deal with the underlying problem of America’s culture of violence.

Unlike LaPierre, though, Keene did take some questions on the issues the former raised in his address at a press conference on Dec. 21.

LaPierre's statements were in response to a barrage of criticism against the NRA, following the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre of 20 children and six adults.

His passionate defence of gun ownership and proposal that school guards be armed triggered further outrage and heavy criticism, including by some NRA members. The organization boasts 4 million members.

One Wikipedia writer even labeled LaPierre “nuts," a comment that was removed not long after it had been published online.
