Donald Trump stands by proposal to give teachers guns: 'Attacks would end!'

Posted In: News Date:Feb 22nd, 2018

Donald Trump doubled down on his proposal to address school shootings by giving some teachers guns, tweeting on Thursday it would be a “great deterrent” to killers.

The US president on Wednesday held a listening session at the White House with survivors of last week’s Florida school shooting and others affected by gun violence, telling them “teachers and coaches” who were “very adept at using firearms” could be armed.

“If you had a teacher who was adept at firearms, they could very well end the attack very quickly,” he said.
