18-24 Year Olds Want Teachers Armed by Wide Margins

(Austin, TX—June 2, 2022) Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018, 2020, and 2021—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted May 25th through May 29th of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.

“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,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action.

“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?”

Why stop with the teachers? In the 40’s kids carried their small caliber rifles to school so they could go hunting on the way home. If they are old enough to drive (an auto is a deadly weapon) they are old enough to carry.

In the 50’s and early 60’s it was usual that during hunting season in California that gun racks on back windows of pickup trucks had weapons in them. Yeah, in CALIFORNIA!
