WASHINGTON (AP) - The nation's largest gun-rights lobby is calling for armed police officers to be posted in every American school to stop the next killer "waiting in the wings."

The National Rifle Association broke its silence Friday on last week's shooting rampage at a Connecticut elementary school that left 26 children and staff dead.

The group's top lobbyist, Wayne LaPierre, said at a Washington news conference that, quote, "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

I'm waiting to see what kind of idiotic policy our govt tries to throw at us in the wake of this tragedy. Banning any particular type of gun is not the answer. Since when do criminals buy guns legally anyways?

Well he is right. The only thing to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
