President Trump Gives Wide-Ranging Speech At CPAC

President Trump Gives Wide-Ranging Speech At CPAC

"I listened to their heartbreaking stories, asked them for their ideas, and pledged to them we will take action, unlike for many years where people sitting in my position did not take action".

"I want certain highly adept people, people who understand weaponry, guns" to have "a concealed [carry] permit" that work in the school so they can take on school shooters.

U.S. president Donald Trump reiterated his suggestion that arming teachers is a solution to gun violence in American schools, as outrage over last week's mass shooting in Florida continued across the country.

"The only people in school's threat should carry guns must be highly trained law enforcement personnel", Dillon said.

"If you had a teacher who was adept with the firearm, they could end the attack very quickly", he had said, further stating that schools could arm up to 20 per cent of the teachers so they could stop the "maniacs" from attacking.

Schools need to be hardened because at the Florida school "bullets went right through those steel doors like they were butter", he added.

"There are too many possibilities for an accident to happen, for someone to think that someone is a threat", Glen Rock, NJ high school student Casey Bedwell-Coll said.

"The focus on mental illness is a distraction by Trump and the NRA", tweeted David Rothkopf, a senior fellow at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. He added to his idea, saying those school employees that qualify after "rigorous training" to be armed could get a 10 percent to 40 percent bonus - but he did not specify how much that might cost or how his administration would propose to pay for the idea.

Trump also used Twitter to come to the defense of the National Rifle Association, which has been criticized by some following the Parkland shooting.

Mr Trump said of the NRA would back his call for raising the legal age of purchase for "all" guns from 18 to 21. "The shameful politicisation of tragedy, it is a classic strategy right out of the playbook of a poisonous movement", NRA chief Wayne LaPierre told an annual conservative conference in his first public comments since the Parkland tragedy. "They look for gun-free zones because, believe it or not, they don't want to get killed".

"We do need some type of gun control reform", said Broward County (Fla.) Sheriff Scott Israel.

"He certainly did a poor job", Mr Trump said. "People like to blame them, and they do have power and all of that, but they want to do things".
