Poll Result

In response to the Sandy Hook school massacre, National Rifle Association leader Wayne LaPierre has called for placing armed guards in every American school. Is this a good idea?  Please check the response that most closely represents your view.

  49%
1 – Excellent idea. A shootout at the school door is better than unchallenged slaughter inside of the building.

  21%
2 – It is worth investigating, but I’m skeptical. For one thing it would cost lots of money and schools don’t have a lot of extra money.

  0%
3 – No opinion.

  29%
4 – Lousy idea. Rent-a-cops are not the answer to a gun-sick society. It isn’t practical to lock down our schools like prisons or military bases.
