WASHINGTON (AP) — The National Rifle Association is forcefully sticking to its call for placing armed police officers and security guards in schools.

Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Wayne LaPierre says any new efforts by Congress to regulate guns or ammunition would not prevent mass shootings. He says the American people think it would be “crazy” not to put armed guards in every school.

Former congressman Asa Hutchinson tells ABC’s “This Week” compares the NRA’s plan to the air marshal program which he says has provided a deterrent and made flying safer.

But the NRA’s response to the Newtown shooting is being panned on several fronts. Congressman Chris Murphy of Connecticut calls it “tone deaf” and “revolting.”

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says putting armed guards in schools would turn them into armed camps for kids.

And Sen. Charles Schumer says LaPierre and the NRA blame everything but guns for the recent spate of mass shootings.
