United States President Donald Trump, defending his controversial proposal to arm some of America's teachers, said on Friday that a teacher with a gun would have "shot the hell" out of the teenager who went on a shooting rampage last week at a Florida high school. Early Thursday, Trump tweeted his strongest stance on gun control one day after an emotional White House session where students and parents poured out wrenching tales of lost lives and pleaded for action.

"We will really have to strengthen up background checks", the President said.

All school officials said the preventative focus should be on building stronger relationships with students rather than arming teachers.

Trump promised "very strong on background checks", and he suggested he supported allowing some teachers and other school employees to carry concealed weapons to be ready for intruders.

The nation is gripped in a debate over gun control and school security after a gunman wielding an AR-15 semi-automatic last week killed 17 students and adults at a southeast Florida high school. How have we not stopped this after Columbine?

In the wake of the shooting, numerous student survivors marched and lobbied for stricter gun control laws. During a White House press briefing held shortly after Trump's event ended, Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said that the Trump administration is definitely opposed to any new weapons ban, but beyond that, remains in "a listening phase".

Trump's support for any tightening of gun laws would mark a change for the Republican, who was endorsed by the National Rifle Association gun rights group during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"It's not going to be talk like it has been in the past", Trump said.

The president of the 1.7 million-member American Federation of Teachers, Randi Weingarten, called arming teachers a terrible idea and said an educator's handgun would be no match for the assault-style weapons often wielded by attackers. "There's no question about that", Trump said of Scot Peterson on the White House South Lawn before leaving to speak at CPAC.

"You'd have a lot of people that'd be armed, that'd be ready, they are professionals, they may be Marines that left the Marines, left the Army, left the Air Force, and they are very adept at doing that".

He said only those with "aptitude" should be carrying weapons, and pitched an incentive program. "This is a very complex problem and we need serious solutions", he said. When you say this school is gun free. We must not let them down.

State statute allows school boards to decide if employees with hide carry permits can bring their guns on school grounds.

The union's executive council on Wednesday passed a resolution condemning gun violence and calls to arm teachers, according to the statement.

"Every day, every day young children are being dropped off at schools that are virtually wide open soft targets for anyone bent on mass murder", LaPierre said. Help us find better ways to keep our children safe.
