During its first press conference since the Sandy Hook School shooting last Friday, the National Rifle Association (NRA) called for schools to be armed with police officers.
"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," said NRA executive Wayne LaPierre.
He said school children are defenseless "and the predators of the world know it and exploit it."
LaPierre urged Congress ”to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every school in this nation."
If you are going to put a police officer in every school, he or she should definitely be armed, said Barrington Police Chief John LaCross last week.
