Newtown on NRA speech: 'Completely off the mark'

Newtown resident David Stout, 49,an energy consultant, said he had hoped to hear an honest announcement from the NRA regarding background checks on all gun sales or closing other loopholes – not putting more armed guards in schools.

"Folks in Newtown are appalled by that suggestion," said Stout, a hunter who owns several hunting rifles. "I understand we want to protect our kids, but there are other ways to do that. We don’t want to turn our schools into prisons."
