Marketplace for Thursday, March 14, 2013

After the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown, Conn., the head of the National Rifle Association, called on Congress "to put armed police officers in every school." But many schools already have "good guys with guns." They're called School Resources Officers. Also, in the immigration debate we often focus on low-skilled workers, but there is a whole other group of scientists and other highly skilled professionals that we want to hire too. A couple of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs have an idea to house them just far enough off shore that they aren't technically living in the U.S. Kai Ryssdal talks to Max Marty, the CEO of Blueseed, the company at the helm of this venture.
