FILE - In this Friday, Dec. 21, 2012 file photo, The National Rifle Association executive vice president Wayne LaPierre, speaks during a news conference in response to the Connecticut school shooting in Washington. “Law-abiding gun owners will not accept blame for the acts of violent or deranged criminals,” LaPierre said in his statement prepared for the hearing but released on Tuesday Jan. 29, 2013. “Nor do we believe the government should dictate what we can lawfully own and use to protect our families.” (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)
