The NRA and 2nd Ammendment gun nuts believe the solution is MORE GUNS! 

After the shooting in Newtown that left 20 elementary school students dead, the National Rifle Association responded with a proposal for what it called National School Shield program. The idea, said the organization's leader, Wayne LaPierre, was that "the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." The shield program aimed to put an armed guard in every elementary school in the country to protect children from the next deranged killer. http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2012/12/21/167785169/live-blog-nra-news-conference

It's obvious that this kind of logic is just plain insane and, as long as the inmates are running the asylum we can expect more guns to be used by more people in killing more people. 

Those who advocate this twisted logic are doing nothing less than aiding and abetting shooters and should be considered a crime in and of itself.
