Obama Endorses NRA’s Position

by Nathaniel Botwinick

President Obama agreed with part of NRA President Wayne La Pierre’s position this afternoon: “I will sign a directive giving law enforcement, schools, mental health professionals, and the public health community some of the tools they need to reduce gun violence. . . . We will help schools hire more resource officers, if they want them, and develop emergency preparedness.” School resource officers are armed policeman that guard public schools — a proposal that Wayne La Pierre called for last month.
