Majority of Voters Support Arming Teachers, School Staff with Concealed Firearms
The majority of voters support arming teachers and school staff with concealed firearms, a Politico/Morning Consult poll found Thursday.
Fifty-four percent either strongly or somewhat support the arming of teachers and staff to respond to a school shooting. Just 35 percent either somewhat or strongly oppose the measure:
- Strongly support 31 percent
- Somewhat support 23 percent
- Somewhat oppose 15 percent
- Strongly oppose 20 percent
When respondents were asked whether or not they believed there will be more, fewer, or the same amount of incidents of gun violence in President Joe Biden’s America, only five percent said fewer.
