Since the shooting tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary there's been lots of talk about whether schools should have armed guards posted.

U.S. Senator Rand Paul stopped by our studio Wednesday night with an alternative for schools that can't afford armed guards.

"I would say that a teacher who has concealed carry permit, who's had instruction in gun safety or a principal, or any other authority that the school district decides, with probably certain rules that the local school district would decide on security, keeping the weapon unavailable to kids and things like that, I think would be a good idea," said Paul.

The senator has been invited to speak to CPAC, a conservative political action committee, in March.

Prospective presidential candidates are often invited to speak at CPAC. Paul told us Wednesday night he would wait two more years before deciding.
