The NRA wants armed guards, or police officers, in every school in the country. I don't. I thought that America was the land of the free, and home of the brave. How can young Americans be free if the only way they can attend school is if they are surrounded by cameras and police officers? How can young people be brave if they are taught that the only way to be safe is to have a government employee with a gun nearby? If the government wanted to create a police state, putting police officers in every school would be a good start.
Chuck Mann Editorís Note: Many schools already have armed law enforcement officers in them every day. They are called school resource officers (SROs).
