Those who want fewer restrictions on the issue of gun control are the most likely to have taken a class
On an average day, 96 Americans are killed with guns. Rather than wait for tragedy to strike, citizens are proactively seeking out instruction through active shooter classes so they can protect themselves and others if caught in a dire situation. According to data from YouGov, one in ten Americans (10%) have already taken an active shooter class.
Research from YouGov Omnibus reveals that 22% of Americans say they would like to take such a class and a third (33%) say they would consider it. Two in ten (21%) say that they wouldn’t consider take an active shooter class.
The three camps not only differ on gun control but also, it appears, on whether or not they would participate in an active shooter class. Americans who say they want fewer restrictions on gun control report the highest rate of already have taken an active shooter class at 14%, compared to those who want stricter gun control laws (8%) and those who want the laws to remain as they are (9%).
Americans who see no need for gun reform are most interested in taking an active shooter preparedness class.
