The shooting of multiple first responders at a fire in New York last night just highlights how ridiculous the NRA’s has been post Sandy Hook. In calling for schools to have permanent armed police officers, the NRA have chosen to treat the symptom not the illness.

As the shooting of these first responders have shown, mass shootings can happen any place at any time. Some other examples from previous years; a military base, a house of worship, inside gun stores, outside gun stores, and hospitals (those are just the ones coming off the top of my head). As you can see, these places are varied, and some are chock full of heavily armed people. There is no method to this madness. If security guards are the answer to this terrible problem, then the NRA is going to have to figure out a way for half of America to be security guards for the other half.
