Let gun owners pay for school security

I think the NRA should put its money where its mouth is ("Gun advocates detail plan to arm teachers," April 3). They should fund the placement of guns in schools and the training of personnel to use those guns.

One vehicle for funding could be taxing ammunition. One cent per round does not sound like too much to ask to protect our children. Such a tax requires no license, no identification of purchaser beyond current requirements, no infringement on the right to bear arms.
