School Safety: Why Armed Teachers Gets So Much Attention
"The only unpopular policy idea to help stop gun violence is the only one that's really been enacted since the Newtown school shooting," reports the Atlantic Wire.
"A majority opposes the one gun-related proposal that seems to have the most momentum — 57 percent of Americans oppose giving teachers and school officials guns in in schools."
Why, then, are politicians (and the press) pushing an unpopular idea?
"While only 23 percent of Democrats want to arm teachers, 56 percent of Republicans do."
