As parents, we do everything we can to keep our children safe. It is now time for us to assume responsibility for their safety at school.


The NRA, its members and supporters wholeheartedly believe there is nothing more critical to our nation’s well-being than our children’s security. Through awareness, education, advocacy and grant funding efforts, the NRA School Shield® program seeks to enhance the capacity of our nation’s schools in identifying and addressing security risks. We understand that this is a significant endeavor – but don’t just take our word for it.

“For the sake of the safety of every child in America, I call on every parent, every teacher, every school administrator and every law enforcement officer in this country to join us in the NRA School Shield Program and protect our children.”

—Wayne Lapierre, NRA Executive Vice President
