Letter: Give everyone guns; we’ll have police state

I just read about the head of the NRA calling for police officers in every school. The people who commit these acts of murder and violence may be mentally ill but they are not stupid. Put a cop in every school and they will go to grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants and hotel lobbies to kill people. 

We can require every business owner to carry a gun and we can put armed guards on every corner. Pretty soon we can live in a police state. I’d rather have sensible gun control.

FYI, there are about 75 schools in Anchorage. That would increase our police department significantly and who is going to pay for that? The head of the NRA is as nuts as the people committing murder. It’s time for a change in America.
