WASHINGTON, D.C. – All around the nation people stopped for a moment of silence.

It`s been one week since the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary and no one`s forgotten it. The shooting naturally has sparked debate about gun regulations and for the first time since the school shooting the National Rifle Association head Wayne Lapierre spoke on the issue.

Blaming the media, Hollywood, and video games, Lapierre failed to suggest a way to keep assault rifles off the streets but instead proposed a national school shield program that would put armed security guards at schools.
