Again, found this on another site. These comments came after the VT Shooting.
The day after the massacre, Yankee Manager Joe Torre made strong comments about how easily handguns could be obtained. "I don't know how anybody can defend the right to buy a gun," Torre said, adding quickly that he understood that hunters need rifles, but that he objected to sidearms and handguns.
Torre is the son of a New York police officer that was abusive to his family. Torre has formed the Safe at Home Foundation to assist victims of domestic abuse. Someone mentioned to Torre that defenders of gun possession argued that armed students could have potential(ly) stopped the massacre.
"That's the N.R.A.," Torre said, referring to the National Rifle Association. With sarcasm, he added: "Arm citizens. That would make it safe."
