NRA chief slams anti-gun "elites" after Florida school massacre

I HEAR YOU:During his meeting with survivors and parents of the Parkland school massacre at the White House on Wednesday Trump carried a cue card reminding him to offer his condolences Trump signals he's open to mileage tax with praise of Oregon program

In the 48 hours since they started the hashtag, Bertels and Wheaton said that more than 5,000 educators have joined in, with hundreds more participating every hour.

"They'd go for special training and they would be there and you would no longer have a gun-free zone".

The president made clear Thursday that he believes additional security in schools is a key to halting America's mass-shooting scourge.

"Arming teachers does nothing to prevent that", she said. Images of Trump hurling rolls of paper towels at hurricane victims in Puerto Rico a year ago and grinning broadly for photographs with emergency medical workers from Parkland have illustrated the challenge.

"I think that if we find the policy solutions that make the most sense that we can get buy in for, we'll figure out the rest of the pieces that you outlined", he said.

The president also repeated his call for some "well-trained gun-adopted teachers and coaches and people who work in those buildings, people who were in the Marines were 20 years and retired, people in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, people who are adept, adept with weaponry and with guns" to be able to have guns to protect their students. It may be 10 per cent, it may be 40 per cent.

"I know that we have restored some clarity in our relationship with Pakistan".

Zeif - whose best friend, Joaquin Oliver, died in the shooting - had strong words for President Donald Trump when he spoke to CNN's Wolf Blitzer Thursday afternoon. The Peterson reaction or non-reaction, they said, showed that even experienced law enforcement personnel, forget teachers, often failed to act decisively when faced with challenging situations. Kurth asked at a CNN "town hall" Wednesday about gun violence.

The idea of arming teachers, while pushed by the NRA, is opposed by the nation's largest teachers union. "They don't want their students to be killed or to be hurt".

Trump appeared to be favourable to the idea.

But that's only half of his proposed solution.

"I'm saying that the problems we are facing here today can not be solved by gun laws alone", Rubio said, adding he supported legislation to raise the minimum age to purchase a gun, ban bump stocks and change the background check system.




These ideas face challenges from the right. The age limit for drinking is 21.

"I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health".

Trump sounded confident of his ability to get the NRA onside.

"They love their students", Trump said of teachers.

"Not surprised the NRA reeled President Trump back in", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement Thursday. Peterson was assigned to the school as a resource officer and was on the campus when shooting began. They've mounted an all-out campaign to win stricter gun law, leading their peers across the U.S. Wednesday in a mass classroom walkout.

But those more modest measures have been thwarted in the past by opposition on the right.

"And a teacher would have shot the hell out of him before he knew what happened".

An armed teacher "would have shot the hell out of" the gunman who attacked a Florida school last week, President Trump told a crowd of conservatives on Friday.

"He just said, 'You guys are coming with me, ' and we were just talking about life as we walked", Pollack said.

"Everything I said was directly from the heart, and he had to write down 'I hear you, '" Zeif said in an interview.

"I don't want teachers to have guns", he said.
