(Reuters) The powerful U.S. gun rights lobby went on the offensive on Friday arguing that schools should have armed guards, on a day that Americans remembered the victims of the Newtown, Connecticut school massacre with a moment of silence.

“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” said Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the National Rifle Association, noting that banks and airports are patrolled by armed guards, while schools typically are not.

His remarks – in which he charged that the news media and violent video games shared blame for the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history – were twice interrupted by protesters who unfurled signs and shouted “stop the killing.”
