Washington, Jan. 10 (ANI): A majority of Americans oppose the National Rifle Association's controversial plan to put armed guards in every school than support it, a new poll has revealed.

According to the Public Policy Polling, nearly 41 percent of voters back the plan, while 50 percent oppose it and the rest are unsure.

The poll found that among partisan lines, the plan gains support among Republicans, with 52 percent supporting it as compared to 39 percent opposing it.

For Democrats, it's the reverse as only 35 percent support the NRA's plan as compared to 57 percent who oppose it, Politico reports.

One week after the December 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, when 20 children and six others were shot dead, NRA Wayne LaPierre held a Washington press conference where he announced the NRA's proposal.

After the news conference, the NRA's favorability rating dipped compared with the week before LaPierre's remarks.

Now, the NRA has a 42 percent favorable rating and 45 percent unfavorable rating. Before the news conference, it had a 48 percent favorable rating and 41 percent unfavorable rating, the report added. (ANI)
