New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the National Rifle Association's call for armed guards in schools represents a paranoid vision of America, reports Associated Press.
He said Friday's press conference by the nation's largest gun lobby group was "a shameful evasion of the crisis facing our country."
He added that the NRA lobbyists blame "everyone but themselves" for the crisis of gun violence. He says America must rise above and demand Congress and President Barack Obama work on reasonable gun restrictions.
