WOODBURY - Rep. Carolyn McCarthy has slammed the NRA’s controversial proposal regarding armed guards in America’s schools.

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy says the NRA’s position is “out of touch with the American people.”

"After seeing the horrific massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Americans want to do more than stop the bad guy with the gun," she said. “We want to stop the bad guy from getting the gun in the first place.”
