The hits keep on coming for the NRA.
Responding to the Sandy Hook School shooting Wayne LaPierre, CEO of the NRA, proposed a program to immediately put armed guards in every school. LaPierre placed an emphasis on getting “good guys” with guns inside schools as soon as possible.
A charter school (of course) followed the NRA’s advice and hired a firearms instructor to help protect their students.
A prosecutor in Lapeer, Michigan says, “No harm, no foul,” after a charter school took the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) advice and hired a armed security guard who promptly left his handgun unattended in a student bathroom.
Chatfield School co-directors Matt Young and Bill Kraly announced last week that they had hired retired Lapeer County Sheriff’s Dept. firearms instructor Clark Arnold as a security guard in response to the December mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
“It’s a tremendous asset to the safety of our students,” Young told WNEM in a report that aired on Tuesday.
Perhaps the “flooding the zone” strategy regarding guns in schools might be a little flawed. Maybe guns are better left elsewhere and getting them out of rather than in schools is a better idea.
