People like Mr. LaPierre want us to believe that civilians can be trained to use lethal force with cold precision in moments of fear and crisis. That requires a willful ignorance about the facts. Police officers know that firing a weapon is a huge risk; that’s why they avoid doing it.What the New York Times and every other liberal proponents of gun control refuses to acknowledge is the "police" are "civilians" trained to use a firearm. There is nothing special about them and other "civilians" can be trained to use a firearm as well. I don't want to have police are armed guards in our schools. I do however see no reason that teachers and administrators who have volunteered to undergo training in how to use a firearm can't go armed in their schools.
