'I hear you': Trump's notes for shooting survivors meeting revealed”

President Donald Trump floated the idea of arming teachers and promised more stringent background checks on gun owners as he hosted an emotional meeting with students who survived last week's mass shooting at a Florida school.

"It only works where you have people very adept at using firearms", Trump said.

The President said he supports measures related to gun restrictions and mental health and reiterated his call to arm some teachers as a way to prevent school shootings. A "gun free" school is a magnet for bad people.

The parent of a victim from the Columbine school shooting says that he hears "a different tone from politicians" after last week's mass shooting at a Florida high school.

A "gun free" school is nothing but a "magnet" for mass shooters, President Donald Trump said on Thursday, doubling down on a proposal to train and arm some teachers to keep United States schools safe.

The president said that gun-free zones to "maniacs" are a signal that "let's go in and let's attack because bullets aren't coming back at us". "I think a lot of people do agree with us but I think we need hardened sites, you come into our schools, you are going to be dead".

Trump invited victims of February 14 shooting in Parkland to the White House, along with survivors and parents of children killed in the 1999 Columbine High School shooting and the 2012 Sandy Hook School massacre. Student Justin Gruber said teachers and students must be able to feel safe in schools.

Echoing some of the calls for action by other Douglas students, Sam Zeif used his time before the President to make a tearful plea for change on powerful weapons like the AR-15.

The NRA's cause received a significant boost when Trump - in his second meeting at the White House on school safety in as many days - doubled down on a plan to respond to the Parkland carnage by putting more guns in schools. "And they would be there, and you would no longer have a gun-free zone".

On Wednesday, Mr Trump met with victims and families from the school to offer his sympathies.

Scott Israel, the local sheriff, announced that "deputies who are qualified and trained will be carrying rifles on school grounds", but also pushed back against arming teachers.

Yesterday Trump instructed the justice department to ban bump stocks, devices that can enable rifles to fire hundreds of rounds per minute.

The bump-stock gun modification was used in the Las Vegas shooting incident, which occurred in October past year.

"I told them, I said we're going to have to toughen them up", the president added.

Ashley Kurth, a Republican teacher who protected more than 60 people in her classroom, questioned Rubio about Trump's proposal to arm teachers.
