It's stupid to think that one armed guard at a school will stop a person who is determined to kill. This is a stop-gap measure that will do nothing to change the gun culture we are living in, to change the mind of the person who wants to do this, to keep that person from getting hold of an automatic/assault weapon. It's not stupid to want to protect our children in the short term this way, but it is stupid to think that this is all that we need to do and everything will be just fine. This is just what the NRA is saying, which, in my mind, is stupid.
