Arming teachers not the answer

US President Donald Trump on Friday cast doubts on the character of an armed deputy who remained outside during last week's school shooting in Florida, saying he froze or was a "coward".

President Trump did also say that he supports backgrounds checks, raising the age to buy a gun to 21 and banning the sale of bump stocks.

The President was moved by the appearances of shooting survivors that were blanketing cable news, and even more so after meeting with several survivors at the White House this week, a source familiar with his thinking said.

In brief remarks before dinner beneath dimmed lights in the State Dining Room, Mr. Trump said the governors are "very, very special people". I want that to sink in - it's eternity.

"I don't understand why I can still go in a store and buy a weapon of war, an AR", said Sam Zeif, 18, sobbing after he described texting his family members during the Florida shooting.

"We have to harden our schools, not soften them", he said.

"If a potential "sicko shooter" knows that a school has a large number of very weapons talented teachers (and others) who will be instantly shooting, the sicko will NEVER attack that school".

"We'll be talking about Parkland and the frightful event that took place last week", Mr. Trump said.

"If they're not gun free - if there are guns inside - held by the right people, by highly trained professionals, you're going to see this end", he predicted, offering no supporting evidence. They don't want their students to be killed or to be hurt. "And I'm pissed - because my daughter - I'm not going to see again".

"I turned 18 the day after, I woke up to the news that my best friend was gone. And I'm telling you that would work because we need offensive capability, '" said Trump.

"Receiving confidential information from students to try to prevent what happened in Florida from occurring", said Defillo. He said, "To stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun".

Becky Pringle, Vice President of the National Education Association, has been a teacher for over 30 years.

But Cardi pointed out that Trump's suggestion just doesn't make any sense.

Instead, Stevenson said, Boulder Valley wants to create "hard targets" by making it difficult for someone intent on doing harm to get access to students or faculty.

Trump wondered aloud whether arming teachers was a solution - many of those present disagreed in a show of hands - and vowed to enhance background checks for gun purchasers. "I'm going to make a difference, for all the kids".

"And I'm fighting for you", she said, looking at the students in the crowd.

Trump also spoke of schools' preparation for a shooter, but stressed having more armed staff on campuses, as much as 20 percent of a school's staff. Stoneman Douglas, like many schools, already has armed security guards.
