USA Today's misleading headline

"Teachers not gung-ho on guns at school" is the headline, but what they should have said is that "Teachers not gung-ho on bringing own guns to school."

Why? Because as the second-to-last paragraph says, "Nearly 90% say having an armed police officer in school would improve safety, while (only) 12% say armed cops in schools would make schools less safe." Notice it says "armed police officer." Which, y'know, means he has a gun. Which means the headline is pretty damn misleading.
