And up next, two events that say everything about our poll view on guns in america. On one side, four months after the shooting in newtown, the state of connect is preparing to pass the strictest gun roll legislation in the nation. While on the other side, the powerful nra today announced their plan to arm teachers and educators with guns in abc's chief white house correspondent jonathan karl brings the details. Reporter: This is nra's vision of school safety. Get down! Reporter: Teachers in ohio getting trained to carry weapons in school. AS THE NRA'S wayne LaPierre put it, just after the sandy hook massacre -- the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Reporter: Today an nra task force concluded a $1 million study recommending armed security in every school. It could be security officers or even teachers trained to carry firearms. That can reduce the response time. It will save lives. Reporter: The president is making a big push for his plan to combat gun violence -- universal background checks and a ban on assault weapons -- taking the campaign outside washington. Does the president think he can change votes in congress by going out to the country and making this appeal on guns? Jon, I don't think it's an issue of changing votes. At no point in this prs does the president believe we suld leave the american people out of it. Reporter: To make his case on guns, the president travels to colorado tomorrow, and on monday, diane, he goes to connecticut, where he has a big speech before an audience that will include family members of the sandy hook victims.
