GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) -- King told The Daily Sentinel (Grand Junction) (http://bit.ly/RL6Ngl ) in a story published Saturday that his measure would provide some state aid for resource officers, but the bulk of the money would come from the school district and the local community.

King made his comments Friday following National Rifle Association Chief Executive Officer Wayne LaPierre's call for Congress to place an armed police officer in every school across the country.

Grand Junction Police Chief John Camper says the NRA's proposal has merit, but raises questions that include whether the community wants an armed officer at every school.
