NRA: Put Armed Guards In Every School

Courtesy NRA.org

Today, the National Rifle Association called yet again for placing armed police officers and security guards in every school in the United States.

LaPierre says putting armed guards in schools is one of the best way to avoid shootings such as the recent massacre in Newtown, Conn.

The only thing that stops a bad guy with guns is a good guy with a gun.

CEO Wayne LaPierre said the NRA would push Congress to pay for more school security guards and would coordinate efforts to put former military and police offers in schools as volunteer guards in a program called The National School Shield Program.

The program will be headed by former Congressman Asa Hutchinson. Hutchinson served in 2001 as the Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and in January 2003, Asa was confirmed by the U.S. Senate to be the first Under Secretary of the newly created Department of Homeland Security.

“How have our nations priorities gotten so far out of order? We care about our money so we protect our banks with armed guards”, says LaPierre.

He also pointed out that while our President and Congressmen enjoy the protection of armed guards everywhere they go on a daily basis, “our most beloved, innocent and vulnerable members of the American family, our children, we as a society leave them every day utterly defenseless.”

LaPierre also contended that any new efforts by Congress to regulate guns or ammunition would not prevent mass shootings and that gun free zones  actually inform “every insane killer in America that schools are the safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk”.
