Afterremaining silent for an entire week following the Newtown massacre, the NRA'sfirst comments were to call for more guns in our schools and our society. Thisis both irresponsible and dangerous. No matter how much money the NRA spends orpropaganda it tries to spread, one thing is clear-the NRA is not serious aboutconfronting the epidemic of gun violence in our nation.
Schools must be safe sanctuaries, not armed fortresses. Anyone who would suggest otherwise doesn't understand that our public schools must first and foremost be places where teachers can safely educate and nurture our students.
