The second-period students found that, of 62 people surveyed, about 79 percent of Roosevelt students and 85 percent of other community members polled on the topic supported extensive gun background checks. They also found that 61 percent of Roosevelt students and 76 percent of residents “strongly agreed” that people should be 21 or older to be able to purchase a gun. Students from other middle schools were also polled.
Whether teachers should be armed led to a discussion among some panelists Monday.
About 52 percent of the 62 respondents said they strongly disagreed with the statement that “If teachers voluntarily opt to carry concealed weapons at school and are trained/re-trained for several hours at least once per year, I would be comfortable with armed teachers in (district) classrooms.”"
