The NRA suggested putting armed guards in schools, and the state media went nuts. They had a field day with that, banging on about how out of touch those extremist, bitter clingers are.
Evidently, the folks at Newtown didn't get the memo.
Gun grabbers balked when NRA Chief Wayne LaPierre announced an initiative to equip every school with an armed police officer after the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. How could anyone suggest such a thing?
Well, evidently, the Newtown Board of Education doesn’t find LaPierre’s proposal quite so objectionable, because last night, the board asked for the town’s approval to place one armed full-time police officer in each of Newtown’s four elementary schools.
“Our parents are demanding of us that things are made safe and secure and certain measures are put in place,” Chairwoman Debbie Leidlein said. “So we’re being very thoughtful.”
