NRA: Public wants armed guards in every US school

The largest US gun rights lobbying organization on Sunday forcefully stuck to its call for placing armed police officers and security guards in every school as the best way to avoid shootings such as the recent massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.


Wayne LaPierre, CEO of the influential National Rifle Association, said his organization would push Congress to pay for more school security guards and would coordinate a national effort to put former military and police offers in schools as volunteer guards. (AP)
