BELMAR – Gov. Chris Christie reiterated his stance Wednesday that armed guards at all New Jersey schools is not the best way to combat future gun violence in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. shooting.
The governor held off from criticizing local officials who opted to put armed guards in public schools, saying he would not attempt to stop towns from implementing armed guard programs.
However, Christie argued he doesn’t think it will solve the overarching issue.
“There’s no silver bullet solution to this,” he said, arguing again that efforts to prevent future attacks need to focus on guns, mental health and media – rather than a single area.
“I also think it’s a negative for our kids to have to see armed [police officers at school every day],” he said.
