At the risk of offending family and friends who support the National Rifle Association, let me get this straight. In this current economic climate of cuts in government spending, including drastic cuts in education, the NRA proposes hiring armed guards in every school. At the expense of whose funding? Less for actual education? This does not even address the shootings in other public places.
Please, ladies and gentlemen of the NRA and Congress, remove assault-style weapons from our streets.
