STATELINE (WIFR) -- The National Rifle Association thinks money shouldn't get in the way of having armed guards at every school.
The gun-rights group broke its silence today on the Sandy Hook shootings at a press conference this morning.
They're calling for an armed police officer to be posted in every school nationwide. The NRA also blamed the media for allowing violent culture to come into children's homes. A local school district says bringing more guns into schools is not a good idea.
"Our job is to model best behavior, best practices for children and so if what we're modeling to children is it's okay to carry guns, it's okay to shoot people, we'll be teaching more children how to shoot and that's not what we're trying to do,” said Dr. Dennis Harezlak, the Superintendent of Winnebago Schools.
