US President Donald Trump has said arming teachers could prevent school shootings like that which left 17 people dead last week in Florida.
A staff member with a gun could end an attack "very quickly", he said.
Mr Trump floated the proposal as emotional survivors of the 14 February massacre implored him to make sure it never happens again.
The Republican president also backed calls for improved background checks on gun buyers.

BEST PRESIDENT EVAH!
How about just allowing teachers with CCW permits to not be sitting ducks for deranged madmen with no regard for their no guns allowed signs. Revolutionary idea, I know.
If they have armed guards to protect politicians and celebrities...why not kids?
Loved when he said that, at the listening session.
I read that one of the snake Dim Senators is planning to fight this idea.
Of course....they don’t really want kids protected, from the unborn - teens.
Sick agenda, over protections for ALL children.
And he says he doesn’t believe gun free zones are effective for prevention of mass shooters.
I want to see the talking heads explode now.
Blumenthal is already out there whining about it
Dickhead from CT thinks our kids’ lives aren’t worth as much as politicians and celebrities.
Time to get rid of the misnamed Gun-Free Schools Zones Act altogether.
Its a failure.
Don’t our kids deserve the same protection detail that 0’s kid’s or Minority Crumb “Leader” or celebrities kids/grandkids schools have?
BBC says,”even if the Second Amendment were repealed - it wouldn’t mean that guns were banned. It would simply remove the constitutional right to “keep and bear arms”...
No thank you. The British tried to seize the Colonists arms and ammunition at Lexington, but paid dearly for it.
There’s reasons from history why we have a Second Amendment.
Yeah.....that’s the snake I was thinking about. Blumenthal.
Only for me (and my family)....NOT for thee!!
Good. Very good.
I personally don’t believe that arming teachers goes far enough, but I like it.
I want trained, armed, professional men in every, single school in America.
I also want physical fortifications and security measures.
I am not willing to entertain the non-solution of gun control and “defense-free kill zones”.
This is America, and Americans have the right to bears arms and to defend ourselves.
So let us bear our arms and defend ourselves.
We are not sitting ducks that hide under desks and throw canned food at attackers.
That is not who we are.
It should, and I assume would, be volunteers who would have extra training in gun use and tactics.
Now that Trump has listened to the other side, the victims/parents, and even offered a proposal (a measly memo to "Sleepy" Sessions) that does diddly squat to gun rights in the end, he shows his cards that will now dominate the news cycle and drown out the kids being exploited by Pappa Soros.
Donald J. Trump is quite possibly the most mind-blowingly brilliant politician in modern American history.
If the Israelis have armed teachers and school guards, why can’t we?
Common sense deserts liberals.
Finally ! A national leader who get’s it !
Armed teachers represents an important target hardening against terrorist attack as well.
Most teachers are liberal nut jobs, who crack up at a moments notice, handing crazy lunitic teachers guns is a bad idea. Armed Marshals and metal detectors may be a more sane solution.
