Notably, with the gun control crowd and the media coordinating their attacks on the NRA, condemning its call for armed security in the schools as outrageous and nutty, elsewhere, school boards here and there were quietly following the NRA's suggestion. That speaks volumes.
Liberals and Democrats hate the NRA because they associate it with the GOP and all things conservative. But they love their kids. I know in my gut that if given a choice, and given an opportunity to make that choice quietly and privately, they would say "yes" to putting two armed and well-trained officers at their kids' schools. You know it, too.
