The superintendent of New Hampshire's largest school district is skeptical about the National Rifle Association's idea to put armed security personnel in every school as a bulwark against gun violence.

A week after the Connecticut school massacre that riveted the nation's attention to gun violence and school safety issues, the NRA came out with its armed guard proposal.

Manchester Schools Superintendent Tom Brennan tells WMUR-TV that it's time to think about other options, rather than suggesting more guns in school.
