After a long and probably wise delay, the National Rifle Association finally came out with their post-Newtown tragedy comments. The big suggestion to come out of all of it was to have armed guards at every school. Considering how vulnerable schools are, especially elementary schools where the kids don’t have a fighting chance, I think armed protection would be a great idea. I even think the cost would be nullified by the number of fathers willing to volunteer on rotation to serve such an honorable post. Beats the heck out of cookie baking for the next PTO meeting. Whatever cost might come out of this security could be offset from a special tax coming off of gun registrations. What gun owner would mind paying 1-5% more to keep kids safe while keeping the government off their guns.
