Gallup: Americans Think Armed Police at Schools More Effective Than Assault Weapons Ban

Only about 13% of shootings are done by ANY rifle...so those that this supposed "Solution" would prevent would even be a subset of that. So what exactly is this "ban" really going to do about these killings?

A new Gallup poll shows the majority of Americans believe armed police stationed at schools would be the most effective way to prevent and stop school shootings. They also believe spending more money on the mental healthcare system would help prevent another Sandy Hook.

Americans are most likely to say that an increased police presence at schools, increased government spending on mental health screening and treatment, and decreased depiction of gun violence in entertainment venues would be effective in preventing mass shootings at schools. Americans rate the potential effectiveness of a ban on assault and semi-automatic guns...
