Welcome back one week after the new town tragedy the National Rifle Association.
Broke its silence.
-- this proposal.
Five years ago.
After the Virginia Tech tragedy.
When I said.
We should put armed security.
In every school.
Call me crazy.
But what if what if when Adam -- has started shooting his way into sandy hook elementary school.
He'd been confronted.
