Wayne LaPierre (NRA President) stated that the problem with "bad guys" shooting our school kids can only be properly addressed by having "good guys" with guns at our schools. His organization believes America should fund security personnel for ALL our schools. Our country has just under 100,000 public schools throughout the US. If you can talk someone into accepting the role of school "good guy with gun" they will require a minimum of $35K a year. That is for ONE security person per school. So were talking 3.5 billion to put one "good guy" in each school. Then there is training and equipment costs. The price tag skyrockets when everything is considered to support this effort. I don't believe an atmosphere of armed security personnel sends the right message to our children. Our schools need to become fortresses? As a gun owner I don't agree with Mr LaPierre. Changing legislation to limit/ban military style assault weaponry and ammunition is a move in the right direction. As a hunter I don't need a 50 clip semi-automatic .223 to pursue game. And it is not necessary for home defense. My 12 gauge pump can fill that bill.
