CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A recent survey sponsored by Cleveland 19 News shows a majority of registered Ohio voters polled believe armed veterans and on-duty officers would make school safer for students, but they're torn on whether teacher having guns would be safer.

In a new SurveyUSA Election Poll, the majority of 1,408 registered voters polled also believe banning AR-15-style rifles would keep students more safe at school.

Here's a look at how polled voters replied to five different gun/school-related questions. (The credibility interval for these questions is ± 3.5 percent.)

  • Much more safe: 34 percent
  • Safe: 47 percent
  • Less safe: 3 percent
  • Much less safe: 1 percent
