Trump Proposes Arming Teachers to Contain Gun Violence in Schools

Trump Proposes Arming Teachers to Contain Gun Violence in Schools

"We need our children safe". "He didn't turn out to be too good", the president said. "Unless you're going to have offensive capability, you're wasting your time". "Wouldn't be right", said the president. They want to do things. "And a teacher would have shot the hell out of him before he knew what happened". The most recent one in Parkland, Florida when 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on the afternoon of February 14. Photographers captured images of his handwritten note card with questions and responses such as: "What would you most want me to know about your experience?" and "I hear you".

The Republican ran off potential ideas for guarding schools, including bonuses for the between 10 percent and 40 percent of educators who he said could be granted concealed weapon permits.

For the second consecutive day, the president pitched the notion of giving firearms and specialized training to some teachers and school staffers so they could combat individuals who enter schools with the intent of killing people.

".immediately fire back if a savage sicko came to a school with bad intentions".

Ashley Kurth, a culinary arts teacher at the school who also sheltered dozens of students during the shooting, also had her doubts.

Similar to how some airline pilots are permitted to carry guns in the cockpit, he said at the session: "It only works when you have people very adept at using firearms, of which you have many". This past week, the media misreported that on Wednesday, the President wanted to arm teachers. "I don't like it", Trump said.

He said he had "many ideas" and promised, "We're going to be very strong on background checks".

Trump announced on Tuesday he would propose regulations to ban "bump stocks" used to allow semiautomatic rifles to fire like automatic weapons.

"Congress is in a mood to finally do something on this issue - I hope!" he said.

Mr. Trump told Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi that he's also concerned about children's exposure to violence in video games, movies and on the internet. We must not let them down.

The president meanwhile reiterated his support for the "great people" of the National Rifle Association, whose leader Wayne LaPierre lashed out Thursday at the gun lobby's critics, accusing them of a "shameful politicization" of the deaths of 17 students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

At a separate event Wednesday in South Florida, CNN's Jake Tapper moderated a town hall for students, parents and teachers to speak to Sens.

Trump tweeted Thursday that he will push the minimum age to purchase a semiautomatic weapon to 21 from 18. You see these movies, they're so violent.

At first glance, Trump indicated he would arm teachers or warm to the idea.
