Make NRA pay the bill

 

After the latest public shooting, I find myself increasingly wary when entering most larger public places like schools, shopping malls, arenas and theaters.

When I saw the National Rifle Association’s response – that we should have armed guards at every school – I assume, with their logic, they might want to consider extending that plan to cover most other public locations. Since the NRA is so concerned, I assume they will use their financial resources along with the profits made by all the gun manufactures to fund all these positions. It only seems logical since they don’t trust the government, and this new massive expenditure then wouldn’t mean any increased burden on existing public agencies or additional tax dollars.

If they won’t fund these positions then we might want to consider a more reasoned approach to addressing this problem rather than a totally armed and dangerous society.
