Donald Trump's solution to stop school shootings: Give guns to teachers

"I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health", Trump tweeted Thursday. I want certain highly adept people - people that understand weaponry, people that understand guns, if they really have that aptitude. 20% of teachers, a lot, would now be able to ... immediately fire back if a savage sicko came to a school with bad intentions.

A staff member with a gun could prevent future shootings and end an attack "very quickly", he said.

Ashley Kurth, a Republican teacher who protected more than 60 people in her classroom, questioned Rubio about Trump's proposal to arm teachers. An armed Broward County sheriff's deputy, the regular school resource officer, was on the campus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, at the time of the shooting. "I'm confident that you will do the right thing". You don't want to be me.

Nicole Hockley, whose son Dylan was killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn., disagreed.

It was clear the emotions among the survivors and parents of victims of the attack last week at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida were still very raw and many were still in shock.

"And I don't understand why I can still go in a store and buy a weapon of war".

He added that schools should be protected the way banks are. "This has to never happen again", he continued. I'm not going to sleep until it's fixed.

Saudi to build its first Opera house
Announcing the move, Minister for Culture and Information Awwad bin Saleh Alawwad said he expected the theaters to open in March. The plans include Saudi's first opera house after concerts had been banned for the past two decades.

The President unveiled his plans a day after holding a listening meeting with survivors of the Parkland school shooting, where he also appeared to back arming a fifth of teachers.

"Would I get the same training and would I have the same type of instinct of when and how to use it?" asked Bordeaux, her state's 2018 teacher of the year. "Please", he told the president.

"You won't have, in my opinion, you won't have these shooters because these people are cowards", he said.

He has expressed interest in strengthening background checks, banning "bump stock" style devices and raising the minimum age to 21 for possessing more weapons than at present.

DONALD Trump says he will push for tighter gun laws after the grieving father of a teenage girl shot dead in last week's massacre at a Florida high school made an impassioned plea for him to protect America's students.

"Only 32 states require drills". We will get there.
