A recent school safety study sponsored by the National Rifle Association and headed by former Republican Rep. of Arkansas Asa Hutchinson, suggests that trained and armed staff members on campus, along with at least one armed security officer, would be the best response to stopping horrific school shootings like the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.

The training for staff members would include a 40-60 hr program and background checks.

We have the study in its entirety included below.

Our question to you is, would you be okay with trained staff members carrying weapons in schools? Do you believe this would solve some of the safety issues facing our nation's schools, or would you be against the addition of more guns in schools? Let us know in the comment section.
