Teachers must be for gun control now

Teachers must be for gun control now

The additional guns would be inside schools.

"Many in legacy media love mass shootings".

"I refuse to leave this stage until I say one more time that we must immediately harden our schools".

The AAP supports stronger gun laws, including stronger background checks, banning assaults weapons and addressing firearm trafficking.

Before the hour-long meeting, he said he was keen to discuss violence in movies, reopening mental health institutions and raising the age limit on buying guns to 21.

"Anyone who advocates for arming teachers doesn't understand teachers and doesn't understand schools", Weingarten tweeted Thursday.

Trump said designating schools as "gun-free zones" puts students in "far more danger".

Schumer said Trump has previously broken with the NRA and supported gun restrictions, but then reversed himself. They just want to get more laws to get more control over people.

"The elites don't care one whit about school children".

First grade teacher Lindsey Paull wrote, "The day teachers are asked to carry guns in the classroom is the day I leave my dream job I've had since I was 16 years old".

Its panellists speak glowingly of iconic president Ronald Reagan, posters announce that "big government sucks", and activists advocate for prayer in schools. And will teachers now tap a bulge under their coats and admonish students, "OK, class, do I have to remind you what happens if I don't get those essays on Gwendolyn Brooks by Friday?"

He said Thursday that many teachers have military experience and suggested they be paid bonuses for the added responsibility of carrying weapons.

"It's a freakish fact that in this country our jewelry stores all over this country are more important than our children, our banks, our airports, our National Basketball Association games, our NFL games, our office buildings, our movie stars, our politicians, they are all more protected than our children at school", he said.

"You want a hardened school, and I want a hardened school, too".

"I don't think I'll be going up against them".

Trump also has publicly and privately floated actions that would be at odds with some positions of the NRA - a group that heavily backed him during his campaign for the presidency - including suggesting that the age for purchasing assault rifles be raised from 18 to 21.

Students who survivied the Parkland, Fla., school have created a movement calling for stricter gun control laws.

"Can we protect so much with armed security, while we drop our kids off at school, that are so-called gun-free zones, that are wide-open targets for any insane madman bent on evil to come there first?"

The organization's Wayne LaPierre also emphasized the organization's project called National School Shield.

"I really think the NRA wants to do what's right", Trump said.

Paul Paradis, who owns a gun store in Colorado Springs, was enthusiastic about letting teachers carry firearms on campus.

LaPierre also accused Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., of not working with conservatives and activists enough to address mental health as a concern and to put such checks into the database system to prevent risky people from getting access to guns.

"In America, we mourn with those who mourn and grieve with those who grieve", Pence said. "I nearly feel like I would be a target if I announce to my boss, if I announce to my students, if I announce to my parents, 'Hey guess what?" The president said this idea is one that legislators should consider. An NRA spokeswoman debated survivors of the attack during a heated town hall Wednesday night, and in a speech Thursday morning, Wayne LaPierre, the NRA chief executive, excoriated the media for its coverage of the shooting.
