The NRA Has a Plan

A National Rifle Association-funded task force released a 225-page plan on April 2 to calls for armed police officers, security guards or staff members in the nation's schools. It also calls for states to change laws to allow certain teachers and administrators to carry firearms. A dozen plain-clothes and uniformed officers as well as a bomb-sniffing Labrador retriever stood by as former Republican congressman Asa Hutchinson unveiled the report at a Washington press conference.
