The article focuses on Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association (NRA), who according to the author, will be marginalized as a credible voice representing the will of U.S. citizens, replaced perhaps by the voices of the fathers of the murder victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. It cites the need for Congress and the media to include gender as a central part of the national conversation about mass shooting violence.
