NRA’s plan for guns in schools increases chances of injuries, study says

A new study of the National Rifle Association’s plan to put armed guards in every school across the country has determined that much of the tenets of the NRA plan have come up short in a cost-benefit analysis.

The NRA detailed its plans on Tuesday at the National Press Club, where former U.S. Rep. Asa Hutchinson said schools would be safer if someone were able to shoot back at would-be attackers such as Adam Lanza, the Newtown shooter.

Host Carmen Russell-Sluchansky spoke with Drs. Angela and Gordon Crews, professors of criminal justice and criminology at Marshall University, to discuss the study.
