Well, that's kind of depressing....the NRA's big responce to all the calls for gun control is 'volunteer armed guards at schools'.
Now...I don't think that is a 100% horrible idea....and I would certainly volunteer for the task, but it kind of overlooks the fact that most of our schools are gun free zones. If we do away with the gun free zones, I think that's 90% of the battle...we just need to remove the impression that schools are soft targets. I think 2 or 3 staff members who decide to carry at work would be just as effective, and much less controversial, then 'volunteer armed guards'.
If this is the best the NRA can come up with, I think we might take a step or two backwards on this one.
