President Trump Outlines School Safety Plan, Concealed Weapons for Teachers

Our students need more books, art and music programs, nurses and school counselors; they do not need more guns in their classrooms. "He said it would be about 20%".

"Arming teachers does nothing to prevent that", she said.

President Donald Trump is reportedly proposing a plan that would award teachers with bonuses if they carried guns with them in class.

"How is that wise to have 700,000 more firearms in schools?" "They send out their thoughts and their prayers, and we appreciate that, but that's enough", said one student.

Besides the major USA teachers' unions, the proposal also drew criticism from Shannon Watts, the head of one of the leading gun control groups, Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America.

He said he wants to do more to "harden" schools instead of softening them and suggested that a "gun free zone" for someone who wants to be a killer is "like going in for the ice cream".

He added that schools should be protected the way banks are.

Trump expands use of 'short-term' insurance from 3 months to full year
Due to their skimpiness, the plans tend to be cheaper than the cheapest offerings in the Obamacare individual marketplaces. These short-term policies typically have higher out-of-pocket costs and cover fewer services than traditional insurance.

"Crooked Hillary said that I want guns brought into the school classroom", Trump tweeted in May 2016, referring to then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump says he wants to see action on a series of gun control measures, saying "Congress is in a mood to finally do something on this issue - I hope!" "The whole idea from some of our opponents that armed security makes us less safe is completely ridiculous".

At least 17 people were killed in the February 14 shooting at the high school in Parkland, Florida. He started off denying that he ever said he wanted teachers to have guns, to admitting that maybe "highly adept" teachers with "aptitudes for guns" should be permitted to hide carry - and that this number could be as high as 40 percent of teachers - to finally proposing to offer bonuses to teachers who agree to carry guns.

He concluded his speech to a gathering of conservative leaders with the NRA catchphrase: "To stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun". Many students view the Parkland shooting as part of inaction by lawmakers to curb access to guns.

The NRA officials didn't address whether the federal government should raise the age limit for young adults to buy weapons, accusing Democrats and media outlets of exploiting the Florida shooting.

They came a day after he held an emotional session at the White House with parents, students and teachers affected by the Parkland rampage as well as other school shootings, who begged him to take action, and as a wave of student-led activism continued to spread in favor of changing gun laws.

Trump, who campaigned with the support of the NRA and has been an ardent advocate of gun rights, is facing resistance from the powerful lobbying group on raising the minimum age to purchase assault rifles.

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