Arming teachers has been the discussion of the year in America so far, and per a poll, many Americans are apparently on board with the controversial idea. In a poll conducted by The Washington Post, over half-of-all legal age Americans do indeed oppose the idea.
But, the other part not so much.
In no surprise, Republicans support the idea as they are largely the biggest base of pro-NRA/gun wielders in the United States. Also on the board, are Independent voters, who, also largely support the idea — although it remains a bad one.
As it has been pointed out several times before, even a good guy with a gun, can’t actually stop a mass shooting (and even sometimes, they’re the cause of them). Arming teachers to the teeth with guns, or, (“suggesting that they get a bonus for carrying heavy to school”) is not only ridiculous but its so far right-field that one would only expect something of the nature from Trump and or his supporters.
Meanwhile, on the topic of gun control the state of Florida has opened the idea of banning anyone under 21 from ever owning or buying a gun all together. Furthermore, they now join Trump in his quest to ban devices that make guns shoot faster (like bump stocks, for example). The NRA, however, has vowed to fight any state or government entity that attempts to raise the gun-owning age beyond 18 years of age.
