RELEASE: March For Our Lives Protesters “Don’t Know the Facts” About Arming Teachers
March 26, 2018
For immediate release
Springfield, VA – Representatives from Gun Owners of America (GOA) interviewed protesters at the “March For Our Lives” protest on Saturday, March 24.
Protesters were unable to give substantive solutions on school shootings. In fact, when one protester was asked about a solution for school safety, her response was simply, “ban guns.” Another protester stated she was against arming teachers, but admitted she “[didn’t] know the facts about it.”
“No marcher I interviewed could name for me a single gun control law that criminals would obey, but they were all sure that arming adults in schools would not work to save lives,” GOA’s Executive Director Erich Pratt observed on Twitter.
Erich Pratt, or another GOA spokesperson, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over 1.5 million members and activists.
