Philadelphia mayor: NRA plan a “dumb-ass idea”

Count the mayor against any plan for armed guards in schools

Topics: NRA, Gun Control, Michael Nutter, dumb-ass idea,

The mayor of Philadelphia has some straight talk for the NRA.

On MSNBC, he said the group’s post-Newtown plan to put armed guards in schools is a “dumb-ass idea.”

Mayor Michael Nutter said that the ludicrousness of the argument was underscored when a gunman shot and killed two firefighters in upstate New York.

“I guess that Mr. LaPierre would say that firefighters need to have armed guards go with them. I think it just shows that that was a completely dumb-ass idea from the start,” Nutter said. “We need to ban assault weapons. We need to ban the high capacity clips and magazines. We need serious background information system upgrade.”
