NRA is right about armed guards in schools


Anti-gun Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg from New Jersey called LaPierre’s plan “reckless.” He states, “It is beyond belief that following the Newtown tragedy, the NRA’s leaders want to fill our communities with guns and arm more Americans.”

How else can a crazed killer be stopped, Senator? Don’t our sons and daughters deserve a small degree of security afforded the children of presidents, senators, and congressmen, or are they to be left alone and undefended in the slaughterhouse of another “gun-free” zone?

If Wayne LaPierre and the NRA have their way, the next time Satan goes to school, he will be met at the door by a guardian angel wearing blue and carrying blued steel.
