The National Rifle Association has its own plan to prevent gun violence in schools. Shortly after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, the NRA suggested armed guards in schools to protect students.

Joining us for details is Robert Spitzer, NRA member, chair of the the political science department at the State University of New York-Cortland, and author of "The Politics of Gun Control."
