NRA suggestion

To the Editor:

Imagine an employment offer, as suggested by the NRA, for the position of armed guard at your local school. 

With your school district providing a handgun, and bearing the associated liability, will the guard be prepared to prevent a deranged gunman with a military automatic rifle from shooting students and teachers?

The employee will be paid how much per hour? 

I wonder how many applicants would respond!
