And yet the media headlines are all about gun control.
In the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, the National Rifle Association proposed putting armed security officers in schools across the nation. According to a 2013 Rasmussen survey, most Americans agreed with the organization’s proposal.
“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre said at the time. And he’s right—just look what happened in Oregon this week.

Troutdale school resource Officers Nick Thompson and Kyle Harris were at Reynolds High School when Tuesday’s shooting occurred, Multnomah County Sheriff Dan Staton said.
“As soon as this happened, they were there in less than a minute,” Staton said. “Had they not been there, it could have been a lot worse.”
