Arm the teachers campaign catches fire
No one from the NRA came out during the protest. But Larry Ward, who works next door with the firm Political Media, decided to come out and defend the gun lobby. While he is a gun owner, he is not a member of the NRA.
"Quite frankly, I'm tired of the argument only being one-sided when there's a tragedy," he told reporters. "There's only one answer: more gun control, more gun control. ... This school was a gun-free zone, I believe. And the truth is, if there was one teacher or one principal armed that could have come in and ended the violence with one shot -- with one shot could have saved dozens of children."
When asked whether he believed teachers should also carry assault weapons, Ward responded, "If they have a weapon in their possession where it's safe, it's behind a lock and the teacher can get to it and aim it at the door when the person's walking into the classroom with their assault weapon -- yeah, I would not mind having a teacher protect them."
