Poll re Arming Teachers

#1

Here's a poll re whether teachers should be armed.

The poll is on the MSNBC website, so it's overwhelmingly negative. If you like the idea, you might consider balancing out the responses.

As usual it is a poorly worded poll.

Agreed that it is poorly worded. There are alternate wordings that might yield different poll results. For example, "Do you agree with laws that disarm teachers and school staff who might otherwise legally carry firearms?"

A lot of these polls are rigged. I seriously doubt 4,969,000 people voted for this MSNBC poll. MSNBC's TV viewers are only 1-2 million link
