Liberals scoffed at the NRA idea to put armed police or guards in all schools. They called the idea “delusional” and “paranoid.” This idea is so delusional at least 23,000 schools nationwide— about one-third of all public schools — already have armed security. The NRA may be under attack after the recent wave of shooting, but they still have strong support among the public.
Fifty-four percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of the National Rifle Association, while 38% have an unfavorable opinion. The public’s ratings of the NRA have fluctuated since first measured by Gallup in 1993 — from a low of 42% favorable in 1995 to a high of 60% in 2005.
… Favorable opinions of the NRA are much higher than average among the 45% of Americans who report having a gun in the household — although one in four view the NRA unfavorably. At the same time, four in 10 of those without a gun in the household have a favorable opinion of the NRA.
