Arming some teachers would stop school shootings 'instantly'

Schumer Says Trump's Bump Stock Memo Will Not Work

Alabama's Congressional Democrats ready for gun control action, Republicans mum

Bump stocks were used in the Las Vegas shooting in which 58 people were murdered a year ago. Talking to people, Trump said, "A gun-free zone, to a maniac - because they are all cowards - a gun-free zone is 'Let's go in and let's attack". He added to his idea, saying those school employees that qualify after "rigorous training" to be armed could get a 10 percent to 40 percent bonus - but he did not specify how much that might cost or how his administration would propose to pay for the idea.

Trump was spotted holding a list of compassionate responses while meeting with gun violence survivors at a listening session on Wednesday.

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.

Whether lawmakers can muster enough support to pass any bill on gun rules remains to be seen.

"I don't believe teachers should be armed - I believe teachers should teach", Israel said.

"What I said was to look at the possibility of giving 'concealed guns to gun adept teachers with military or special training experience - only the best", Trump said in a Twitter message. He said it is time to get to work and highlighted stronger background checks and mental health issues.

The survivors of the Florida shooting are planning a march called the "March for Our Lives", which will be held next month in Washington D.C.

One of the most emotional moments came when Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow (18) was killed, spoke. At one point, he yelled at Mr Trump: "Fix it!" Spokeswoman Dana Loesch said at CNN's town hall on Wednesday, "I don't believe that this insane monster should have ever been able to obtain a firearm, ever". He sobbed as he told the president that he could not understand why it is still possible for someone to go into a store and buy a "weapon of war". So let's be strong for the fallen who don't have a voice to speak anymore, and let's never let this happen again.

Mark Barden, whose son was killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in CT, said his wife, Jackie, a teacher "will tell you that school teachers have more than enough responsibilities right now than to have to have the awesome responsibility of lethal force to take a life".

Talking about her late son Dylan, she said: "Every parent who sends their child to school should know without any question they're going to be coming home that day".
