Trump says arming some teachers would stop shootings "instantly"

'I hear you': Trump uses a CUE-CARD to remind himself to be sympathetic as he meets survivors of Florida school massacre

One week ago 19-year-old Nicholas Cruz opened fire with an AR-15 rifle at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

After statements from a number of people, Trump said he'd be looking into the possibility of arming teachers - admitting that the move was "controversial" but asking for support.

"And Mr. President, we'll fix it. I want to feel safe at school".

Trump listened while survivors spoke during the event, but he later used the school shooting in Florida to make a case for looser laws on concealed carry permits. "How is this still happening?"

Trump said school shootings often end before police and first responders have time to arrive.

Some were supportive of Trump though.

He also said he planned to go "very strongly into age, age of purchase".

During the march, the students will demand that children's lives and safety become a priority and that the gun violence and mass shootings in schools should end soon.

Quincy Jones makes public apology for explosive interview claims
Quincy Jones-an eternal wellspring for previously untold, wildly entertaining stories about your favorite celebrities, which you can read right here at GQ-has made a decision to stop talking.

The NRA has agreed to participate in a televised town hall on guns to be broadcast by CNN later on Wednesday, the news network said.

Trump repeatedly pledged to work to prevent future school shootings.

"We're going to do something about this frightful situation that's going on". There needs to be a significant change in this country.

Trump suggested in a meeting with survivors of the Parkland, Fla., massacre on Wednesday that teachers who were "very adept at using firearms" could be armed with guns. We need solutions that will keep guns out of the hands of those who want to use them to massacre innocent children and educators. Mark Barden, whose son was killed at Sandy Hook, criticised it, saying teachers already have too much too worry about.

Besides pleas inside the White House, hundreds of protesters gathered outside it Wednesday afternoon to call for restrictions on guns. The attack has fueled fresh calls for tougher gun control laws, including a ban on assault weapons, which Republicans have largely resisted. Still, gun owners are a key part of his base of supporters.

"We need more security, we need more firearms on campus, we need better background checks, and we need to study more on mental health". "It is the gun, it's the person behind the gun and it's about helping people before they ever reach that point".

However, the idea that an armed person would stop a shooter, known as the "good guy with a gun" theory, has been thoroughly debunked by both Stanford scientists and by Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel who told reporters that the Florida shooter still managed to get by the school's armed officer.
