Study finds consensus for arming school resource officers, division on arming teachers and other staff

In the wake of repeated school shootings across the United States, today’s youth have been called the mass shooting generation. A new study examined public support for arming school employees. The study found consensus for arming school resource officers, but division over whether to arm teachers and nonteaching staff. The research has clear implications for policy, including the possibility that support for arming school staff may diminish over time as young people (who are less supportive) make up a larger share of voters.
