The National Rifle Association has issued a statement criticising Reeva Steenkamp for not carrying a loaded handgun with her into the toilet before being fatally shot by her boyfriend Oscar Pistorius. NRA executive vice-president Wayne LaPierre said that he never takes off his gun belt.
‘While sleeping, heck, even when using the bathroom, my semi-automatic pistol is right here, loaded, safety off an’ ready to go. If Miss Steenkamp had done what I do, she’d likely still be with us today. As I said before, the only thing that can stop a bad double amputee with a gun is a good naked half-asleep woman with a gun having a poo.’
