‘What do you think of teachers being armed?’

“In the right circumstances, I don’t think it’s bad. I guess I wouldn’t necessarily arm teachers. I think key personnel, maybe, but teachers, (it’s) a little different in the classroom. But key personnel, I think in the right circumstances, I don’t think it’s a bad idea.”

Brian Ploghoft, Astoria

“I think it’s completely ludicrous.”

Robert Barr, Astoria

“It’s probably a good idea if they have previous firearms experience such as military or police or are willing to go through some standard training so they can help keep children safer in schools.”

Sally Freeman, Astoria
