The National Rifle Association is calling for armed guards to be stationed at all schools across the nation.

It is the NRA's response to the tragedy in Newtown, Conn. where gunman Adam Lanza killed 20 children and six adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School a week ago. Lanza also killed his mother and himself.

"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," said Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president of the NRA.

The Massachusetts Teachers Association and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino rejected the plan. However, Mayor William A. Flanagan of Fall River has stationed armed police officers at his city’s schools to give parents "peace of mind."

What do you think? Do you want armed officers at your child's school?
