According to a new survey, most Americans think that having armed, adequately trained teachers would make schools safer. The Trafalgar Group conducted the survey in partnership with the Convention of States Action (COSA) in the aftermath of a mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. The data obtained by the Daily Wire revealed that a majority of potential voters in 2022 backed having armed and adequately trained teachers in schools.

The survey showed that arming properly trained teachers was the most popular position across the political spectrum. Republicans supported armed educators, with 67.5 percent saying it would make the schools safer. Only 19.4 percent stated the opposite. The majority of Democrats further took place, with 48.2 percent telling pollsters that armed and trained teachers made schools less dangerous versus 41.3 percent who voiced the opposite. [tweet_embed] June 2, 2022[/tweet_embed] 18-24 year-olds were the most supportive of arming properly trained teachers, with almost 62 percent stating that preventing teachers from having firearms made schools much more dangerous. Just 21 percent announced such a policy would make schools somewhat less dangerous. 1,091 probable general election voters were polled from May 25-29. The poll had a margin of error of 2.9 percent. COSA President Mark Meckler announced in a statement, “No shooting at a school is going to be stopped by gun control laws. They are going to be stopped by a variety of fairly simple on-site measures, including arming law-abiding citizens–in this case, specifically teachers–and empowering them to protect our children, schools, and communities. A majority of voters see this clearly, despite the relentless propaganda by people who want to confiscate the guns of law-abiding citizens.” [tweet_embed] June 2, 2022[/tweet_embed] He said, “Self-defense is a bedrock of this Republic and our Constitution. The Founders were clear that defending those we love is the responsibility of the citizen first. So many deaths have been prevented by armed citizens, so why would we question the voluntary training and arming of teachers to protect those we love and care for the most?” According to the data, 57.5% of respondents announced that preventing properly trained teachers from carrying firearms makes schools somewhat or much more dangerous. Only 30.8% said the opposite.
