Reading, Writing And An Armed Guard: Snohomish Sheriff Gets Deputies On Campus

After the Sandy Hook school shooting when 20 children between the ages of 5 and 10 years old were killed in Newtown, Connecticut, some organizations, including the National Rifle Association, recommended armed guards. 

Snohomish County is putting armed police officers in county schools, but the Snohomish County Sheriff says this decision is not influenced by the NRA. Ross Reynolds and Sheriff John Lovick discuss how six armed officers rotating through more than 100 schools spread out over 2,000 square miles will potentially work.
