Trump Repeats Call to Arm Teachers in Wake of Florida School Massacre

The disclosure added to the growing chorus of criticism of Trump's approach of "hardening the school" rather than pursue gun control measures opposed by the National Rifle Association that some liberals critics want to be designated as a domestic terrorist organisation.

But House Republican leaders ignored the bill previous year and instead passed legislation to lessen restrictions to carry concealed weapons.

"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".

"They love our Country and will do the right thing", Trump wrote.

The NRA, the powerful gun lobby, has long argued for more armed security in U.S. schools, and its leader Wayne LaPierre repeated the call in a speech on Thursday.

Thursday's New York Daily News cover comes a day after the paper depicted Trump with tape over his mouth representing the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Bouchard was also still able to drum up endorsement money, in large part due to her aggressive social media presence, he said. Benedict Morelli, Bouchard's lawyer, said: "When people attack you and attack your name, you get affected by that".

New York State United Teachers spokesman Carl Korn says that "It's hard to think of a worse idea".

Over and over again, attendees at CPAC - many of them students - argued that they wanted to see more security in schools, but few seemed to be anxious that Trump was abandoning the GOP's key principles on the Second Amendment.

Leaving the White House for the CPAC event, Trump had even harsher words for the deputy, Scot Peterson. "But that's a case where somebody was outside, they're trained, they didn't react properly under pressure, or they were a coward".

Ashley Kurth, a culinary arts teacher at the school who also sheltered dozens of students during the shooting, also had her doubts.

"When it came time to get in there and do something, he didn't have the courage or something happened". "We have people in Washington DC - representatives, senators and legislators - telling teachers what they should do without asking teachers, 'What do you want to do?'" "It can't only be defense", Trump told reporters. A gun-free zone to a killer or somebody who wants to be a killer, that's like going in for the ice cream. American Outdoor Brands Corp.

"This would be obviously only for people who were very adept at handling a gun, and it would be, it's called concealed carry, where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them", he said. Trump said he wasn't concerned, though, about that.

He said the Android Go devices based on Oreo will be up for purchase after the official announcement which is happening next week. The Bharat Go phone is expected to retail at about INR 2 ,000, but details about the specs and features remain unknown.

The NRA is one of the biggest spenders in elections, ranking ninth among all outside groups, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump called on his supporters to "knock the crap" out of protesters at his rallies and even vowed to pay their legal fees.

US President Donald Trump, defending his controversial proposal to arm some of America's teachers, said on Friday (Feb 23) that a teacher with a gun would have "shot the hell" out of the teenager who went on a shooting rampage last week at a Florida high school.

On Wednesday, the president in fact appeared by turns sympathetic, attentive, determined to take action and angry on behalf of his distraught guests. The president commented as he opened a school safety discussion at the White House with state and local officials from around the country. The age limit for drinking is 21.

The NEA said more guns in schools is not the solution. "Not this time", he wrote. "I'm gonna make a difference for all the kids".

"Why are we treating our schools like they're supposed to be a military installation with teachers trained like police officers and military personnel?" she asked.

The president then doubled down on the proposal Thursday, both on Twitter and at a subsequent White House meeting. "And I'm sure that right after we left, when everyone was gone, he had a long talk with the NRA", Zeif responded.

Netanyahu accuses Abbas of 'running away from peace'
Danon said Abbas is always welcome to directly negotiate with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but chooses not to. Abbas, Erekat said by way of defense, has "led the peace process and promoted the principle of the two-state solution".

"I feel really safe, knowing that, I can come to school and if there's an incident that does happen that they'll be able to protect us", said the student, who also didn't want to be named. There are reports that the NRA was concerned about pushback from gun control advocates.
