Security Firm Lobbyist Runs NRA School Gun Program

When 26 school children and educators were murdered in Connecticut last month, the National Rifle Association’s response called for government to spend billions putting armed guards in every American school, putting kids in the crossfire. Heading the NRA’s “National School Shield Program“: Asa Hutchinson, who sits on the board of Pinkerton Government Services, which stands to reap huge profits from such a program. Mr. Hutchinson’s law firm has also represented the trigger-happy Blackwater mercenary army, shadowy Iraq war engineers SAIC, and Point Blank Body Armor.
