“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” says NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre. “Would you rather your 911 call bring a good guy with a gun from an hour away, or from a minute away?”

“Why is a gun a good thing when it’s used to protect our president,” he asks, “but bad when it’s used to protect our children in our schools?”

He recalls that after the Virginia Tech shooting last year he suggested posting armed guards at every school and people called him crazy. He asks people to at least consider the possibility that if Adam Lanza had been faced with “qualified armed guards” at Sandy Hook, the tragedy could have been avoided.

He then turns to budget talks, positioning the lack of police officers or guards at schools as a matter of cost.
