Wayne LaPierre, leader of the National Rifle Association, fought Sunday on Meet the Press to defend himself and his call for armed security guards in every public school.
“If it’s crazy to call for armed officers in our schools to protect our children, then call me crazy,” LaPierre said. “I think the American people think it’s crazy not to do it. It’s the one thing that would keep people safe.”
LaPierre also shot back at those calling for an assault weapons ban, saying such laws are ineffective and: “I don’t think it would make one difference.”
Would a “good guy with a gun” in tens of thousands of public schools as the NRA suggests help prevent another Newtown?
