A sheriff who has made headlines for his rigid stance on immigration appears to be following the NRA’s advice when it comes to preventing school shootings.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced yesterday he plans to send armed volunteers  to protect schools in Maricopa County, Ariz. from any potential threats, AZFamily.com reported Friday.
“I have the authority to mobilize private citizens and fight crime in this county,” he said, according to AZFamily.com. “We’re not talking about placing the posse in the schools right now but in the outlying — the perimeters of the school — to detect any criminal activity.”
Arpaio’s plans were announced just a couple of weeks after Adam Lanza killed 20 children and six adults  at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. He also killed his mother before his shooting rampage at the school.
