NRA: Put ‘Armed Police Officers’ In Every School


During its first press conference since the Sandy Hook School shooting last Friday, the National Rifle Association (NRA) called for schools to be armed with police officers.

"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," said NRA executive Wayne LaPierre.

He said school children defenseless "and the predators of the world know it and exploit it."

LaPierre urged Congress  ”to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every school in this nation.

At least one Patch reader does not agree.

"We can't even afford teachers," said Mike Barbas on the Middletown Patch Facebook page.  "Good guys with guns is not the answer."
