The attack on gun ownership is a red herring to protect schoolboards who choose not to hire armed guards to protect students. The president, Congress, and courts all have armed guards and metal detectors and x-ray macines to protect them and it works. School boatds have decided it is NOT worth the money to actually defend schools with the same kind of resources that the Federal government uses. No one in Newtownis asking why they did not have protection. And now tbey have armed guards pisted at the school to reassure students. Why not ask YOUR school board what THEY are doing to guatd against attacks?
