The powerful pro-gun lobby group in the United States has began a full media offensive.

The National Rifle Association is defending its response to the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut that left 26 people dead - including 20 children.

On Friday, the group had said gun control laws are the real problem, blaming Hollywood and violent video games for gun deaths.
