Not a single mind in America was changed by La Pierre's statement. The NRA base cheered; NRA skeptics remained skeptical.

And more than a handful of NRA members became skeptics too.
This is the concern. I would ask folks who thinks it's off base to criticize the WLP speech to talk to a PR person who is in the middle what they thought about that speech. The exact same facts and political plan (armed school guards) could have been presented while not trying to scare people even more. Further, if you're going to demonize other rights, it's doubly inept to demonize artistic works that are over 10 years old.

Emphasis added. If we banned everyone who played Call of Duty from Calguns, would we have anyone but Kestryll left?
