(Dec. 21, 2012) – A week after the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, the National Rifle Association finally broke its silence.
On Friday, NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre tried to out-blame the gun-blamers. He focused his attention on Hollywood. He focused his attention on violent video games. He focused his attention on the media.
But somewhere in the midst all that finger-pointing, LaPierre did manage to slip in one policy proposal.
Armed guards stationed in every American school.
OK, maybe an armed, uniformed goon roaming school hallways makes sense.
But we find the real kicker in his preferred methodology for getting this done.
“I call on Congress today to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation.”
So Wayne, please show me the enumerated power authorizing Congress to fund police officers in schools.Details
