Letters | NRA task force weighs in

Gun lobby should put its money where its weapons are


The National Rifle Association’s task force report released last week (“NRA details plan to put armed guards in all schools,” Page A2, April 3) provides the organization with a great opportunity to show how much it believes in its recommendations for how to improve safety in schools. If the NRA feels that arming more adults in schools is the best answer to school safety, then it and the firearms manufacturers it lobbies for should donate the weapons and ammunition to every teacher and administrator in the United States who wants to carry them, in both public and private schools, and pay for their firearms training. That would show their true commitment to school safety.
