Johnson: The NRA pays
Okay. So the NRA wishes to place armed guards in all schools throughout the USA. I am all for it, with one stipulation: The NRA must pay for it. This organization is by far made up with conservatives, yes? Conservatives disdain government spending on everything, yes? Let them put their money where their mouth is, and raise membership dues (similar to taxes) to the point where they can afford to train, arm, armor and pay armed guards in each and every school in our country (higher population districts will require multiple guards in every school). Why is Wayne Lapierre calling on Congress to fund this? It is time for you conservatives to belly up to the bar and pay. Or could it be that you wish for the taxpayers to pay for this scheme, despite your so-called hatred of “big government?”
