    I think it's a good strategy on the NRA's part to outline that:
    1) Armed Security is an immediate solution to stop/deter school shootings
    2) There are a number of qualified and available individuals who can be readily deployed
    3) Protecting schools isn't a legislative issue, so much as an appropriations issue

    Wow, I agree with everything Wayne said. Outstanding plan that I believe lots of folks can get behind. NRA stated they would fund it. Dang.

    Outstanding. :thumbup:

    So, now there will be a plan for Security at schools that does not use government resources or tax dollars.

    It is time for us to pressure our politicians to forget about gun legislation. It doesn't work anyway. The government should be focusing on improving mental health care and making it available for everyone that needs it.

    Well that may Reflect their stand (channel12) on the gun issue.
    I don't know what it is but that maybe that's an Indicator.

    Very pleased with the press conference, so I'll be renewing my membership today as a show of support. Hope many others renew this weekend or become new members.

    I like this one.
    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."

    This is a shining example of what true leadership looks like.

    I'm already an Endowment Life Member so I just donated $100.

    Is there a summary? I missed the conference. From what I gather they are funding training and a program for school security? That would be so much better than just funneling money to support political campaigns.
