Here's the data. I've been trying to figure out what the NRA's suggestion that we all pay to have armed guards in all public schools, okay? Well, there are 23,000 public schools that already have armed guards. That's one third of all public schools, which means we have to cover 46,000 more public schools with armed guards. One NPR report came up with $80,000 required per year per armed guard.
That means the NRA wants us to go into considerable debt to keep them in business. The total cost of paying for all armed guards in all public schools at the rate of one guard per school comes $5,520,000,000 or five billion five hundred twenty million buckaroos. Shared, probably, by the federal, state, and local governments (taxpayers) across the country. That doesn't include private and religious schools nor, presumably colleges and universities.
Divide three hundred million Americans into that and you realize how much would each of us would be paying to keep the vanity-'n'-violence gun industry in business, along with the NRA which has offered to provide the program that trains the armed guards. So-o-o-o generous of them!
But check the figures. I could be totally wrong, either way, with the $.98 calculator here on my computer table...
