Mark Steyn on why he opposes NRA’s federal plan to put armed guards in schools

Mark Steyn says that a federal schoolhouse security force that puts an armed guard in each school will be a bureaucratized nightmare and that he believes it’s better for a school district to appoint someone who will assume that role. Because as he points out, the right people for the job are already at these schools.

He also makes the point that it took police 20 minutes to get to Sandy Hook Elementary, saying no one will be there for you when the world goes bust which is why you need to be able to fully defend yourself whether it’s at school or anywhere for that matter.

He makes other great points as well, including why the 2nd amendment isn’t just about your right to bear arms.
