NRA Wants Armed Police in Every School

The National Rifle Association called for armed police officers to be posted in every American school to stop the next killer "waiting in the wings," the AP reports.

Said NRA president Wayne LaPierre: "The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

The Week has more on the "instantly inflammatory" news conference.

Mark Halperin: "Some Democratic strategists on Thursday in advance of the NRA statement thought the group might talk in a more conciliatory fashion and then work quietly over the longer term to stymie any legislative efforts. Those Democrats were wrong -- and now have to try to figure out how to make Republicans who stick with the NRA pay a political price."
