    This "expert" was careful not to suggest the use of a weapon. Swarm him, throw a fire extinguisher at him...but no pistols.
    Why? Because he's selling his services to academia. And academia is allergic to guns. It's not in their narrative.
    It's the same reason police chiefs won't talk about armed citizens. They work for liberal mayors. Sheriffs on the other hand work for voters and are not afraid to tell people to get trained and use a weapon.
    So, the debate is a little skewed and the AP is more than willing to play along.

    The NRA said basically this a week after the Newtown shooting. Most of us didn't take the time to watch the press conference and we relied on the media (including the DNews)to give us a very bad and nonobjective summary of that press conference. As I recall everyone said it was "impractical" and "costly." Neither of which I understood because the NRA was offering its services of training, tactical building design etc. for free and suggesting how schools may find more free help through volunteer efforts of retired military and policing agencies.
