President Trump seems to think the way to solve the problems with school shootings is more guns … specifically, arming teachers.
According to TMZ, Trump fielded suggestions Wednesday at the White House during a “listening session” he hosted with survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
A father of a Stoneman Douglas High survivor suggested allowing certain school personnel to be secretly armed so they can immediately respond before cops arrive. Trump was receptive, and said it was something he’d consider, among other things.
Trump said “maniacs” would be deterred from even attempting a school shooting if they knew bullets could be coming in their direction. The room was torn on the issue.
Interesting … almost no one squarely addressed the biggest issue … banning assault weapons. Also interesting … Trump has taken a position on this before, and appeared to be against guns in the classroom.
