A new school safety task force commissioned by the National Rifle Association is out with its "National School Shield", a plan to help prevent shootings in schools.

FOX News Radio's Rich Johnson reports from Washington:

Among the eight recommendations from the task force: A new program to train school resource officers. But Panel Chairman, former Congressman Asa Hutchinson says there's more:

(Hutchinson) "A model training program for selected and designated armed school personnel."

In other words, teachers and administrators.

(Cummings) "You know, having more guns in schools, I don't think, is necessarily the answer."

But Maryland Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings also says he would give schools the option of adding armed guards, known as school resource officers.
