THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN: 4PM Readers Have a Conservative Solution for School Shootings

A majority of respondents to The 4PM Poll said making schools more secure should be the GOP’s main policy response to mass shootings like the one last week in Uvalde, Texas.

WHAT YOU’RE SAYING

In Friday’s poll, we asked: “What do you think should be the GOP’s No. 1 solution to school shootings?”

  • 59% of you said, “Make schools more secure.”
  • 17% said, “Invest in mental health care.”
  • 7% said, “Fight for conservative social issues.”
  • 7% said, “None of the above/something else.”
  • 4% said, “Improve policing.”
  • 4% said, “Loosen gun laws.”
  • 2% said, “Tighten gun laws.”

FROM THE MAILBAG

Jo wrote us to say: “If a ‘teacher’ doesn’t want the responsibility of protecting school children, they shouldn’t be allowed in the classroom.”

  • Ron proposed an unconventional alternative: “Outsource safety to Israel. Consider the trillion+ [dollars] we could have saved had we done that instead of establishing the [Transportation Security Agency].”
