A panel investigating the massacre at a Parkland, Florida high school earlier this year has recommended that certain trained, vetted teachers be allowed to carry firearms in school, a proposal supported by the Trump administration’s Federal Commission on School Safety. Parents of school-age children continue to think that's a good idea.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of American Adults with children of elementary or secondary school age favor a proposal to have trained teachers with guns in the schools. Forty percent (40%) are opposed, while 10% are undecided. However, support is down from 59% just after the Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 students and staff members dead and another 17 wounded.
