Trump Predicts NRA Support for Gun Limits in Plan to Come Soon

  • Faculty members of Clarksville Schools in Arkansas undergo firearms training yearly

President Donald Trump is blaming ailing Republican Sen.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has a policy statement on firearm-related injuries affecting children, which states that the "absence of guns from children's homes and communities is the most reliable and effective measure to prevent firearm-related injuries in children and adolescents". He also pushed hard for arming security guards and many teachers in US schools.

But former teacher Rene Roselle said requiring teachers to carry a gun, would cause many to leave the profession. We put ourselves in the shoes of those students and we felt exactly what they were feeling.

They won't do anything meaningful about guns until you force them to with your votes.

"Of course, we won't all agree on every issue, but I do believe this is a moment when our state can come together around a commonsense set of actions", Scott said on Friday. It may be 10 per cent, it may be 40 per cent. What's more, it's been consistently proven that more guns in schools increases the risk of a deadly accident.

The idea faces potentially insurmountable resistance.

Trump said he spoke Wednesday night with many members of Congress and "they're into background checks". Marco Rubio brushed it off during a heated town-hall debate on CNN.

It has been suggested that one possible solution is to arm teachers in the classroom with weapons of their own to deter any would-be terrorists from another attack. "They don't want their students to be killed or to be hurt".

At the White House on Thursday, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi described to Trump similar efforts underway in her state to allow law enforcement to seize firearms from someone who is deemed to be a danger to themselves or others.

Trump is calling for raising the minimum age for purchasing semi-automatic rifles in the wake of the mass killing - a move opposed by the NRA.

These ideas face challenges from the right.

But raising the age limit shouldn't be the end of the discussion.

But, pushing the boundaries of conservative orthodoxy on something as fundamental to the Republican Party as the Second Amendment has the potential to reveal schisms between Trump and the base that elected him.

Trump sounded confident of his ability to get the NRA onside. She said Cruz posted pictures of weapons on social media and he wrote, "I want to kill people". Very smart people. Must be firearms adept & have annual training. They love this country.

"When they feel gun ownership is threatened, then they're going to respond as if that's the pre-eminent issue", he said. Trump has said making schools safer will be a top priority for the administration.

Within the proposal made by Trump and Scott, as well as a handful of other Republicans backing the measure, comes a rare admission from the GOP: These types of weapons can not be treated like ordinary guns.

Spokeswoman Dana Loesch pointed to the journalists in back of the room. (ThinkProgress is an editorially independent news site housed in CAP.) "The FBI conducted a study of 163 instances of mass shootings and found that only one was stopped by an armed individual versus 21 that were stopped by unarmed people".

"The logistics of it make no sense", she said.

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

"And if you know how to handle it, if you know what you're doing, and if you start to practice your mindset and start to visualize, 'OK, where would I go in my school? Crying white mothers are ratings gold".

The organization's Wayne LaPierre also emphasized the organization's project called National School Shield. That all changed after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It should not be easier for a madman to shoot up a school than a bank or a jewelry store or some Hollywood gala.

"We'll do whatever's necessary to protect our kids and staff", Clugston told CNN.

"It's time to get it done and get it done right", the president said of gun legislation.

She added, "I am confident you will do the right thing".
