Donald Trump Suggests Arming Teachers to Prevent Massacres in Schools


Trump also promised "very strong" background checks on gun owners during the "listening session", in which he heard first-hand accounts from bereaved parents and friends, and schoolchildren who narrowly escaped with their lives.

President Trump on concealed carry for teachers: "If you had a teacher who was adept at firearms, they could very well end the attack very quickly". Barring them from also buying rifles or shotguns would deprive them "of their constitutional right to self-protection", the NRA statement said.

He said that as things stand, attackers have nothing to lose because no one can shoot back.

Briefing notes captured by photographers at United States president Donald Trump's White House listening session with survivors of gun violence show that he needed to be reminded to say "I hear you". "They'd go for special training and they would be there and you would no longer have a gun-free zone", Trump said at the event. He asked, "How many schools, how many children have to get shot?"

"I'm very angry that this happened because it keeps happening", Pollack said.

Although Markle is not yet an official member of the royal family, thankfully she already has 24-hour protection from the palace. The 36-year-old former Suits actress was a keen Instagrammer and also had her own lifestyle blog called The Tig.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday appeared to lend support to proposals to arm school personnel, telling attendees at a listening session on school shootings that the administration will "be looking at that very strongly".

"A "gun free" school is a magnet for bad people", Trump tweeted Thursday morning. There is so much that we can do to help people before it reaches that point, and I urge you please stay focused on that as well.

Noting previous school shootings, such as Columbine and Sandy Hook, Mr Pollack said: "It should have been one school shooting and we should have fixed it and I'm p*****".

In the White House on Wednesday, Trump exchanged views with a group that included some students who survived last week's shooting rampage, bereaved family members, and other guests. The second question was listed as: "What can we do to make you feel safe?".
