Parkland students grade Trump on post-shooting empathy

President Donald Trump says the armed officer who didn't stop the gunman who carried out last week's Florida massacre was either a "coward" or "didn't react properly under pressure".

Trump claimed his proposal to arm teachers, which has been strongly criticized by the nation's largest teachers' unions, was drawing support. "Not all of 'em, but you would have a lot".

Trump says this "could have been prevented".

The push to make schools safer came as the local sheriff's office released details of almost two dozen visits to the residences of Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old behind the assault at Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Florida.

"You had one guard".

Wayne LaPierre, vice president and CEO of the National Rifle Association, said Thursday that reactions like Weingarten's are expected after mass shootings. He later told the conservative group that Peterson "was not a credit to law enforcement".

He was briefed by White House officials before participating in the listening and did not use a teleprompter during the event.

"When it came time to get in there and do something, he didn't have the courage or something happened, but he certainly did a poor job. There's no question about that".

Trump said he spoke with the Republican Congressional leadership in this regard and they seemed to be energised on this issue.

The Broward County sheriff said Thursday that Peterson had resigned after being suspended without pay.

Griffin said the IEA has developed a free lesson plan called Know Me Know My Name which schools can use to help identify students who "end up committing these senseless acts of violence". There are three times as many teachers as police officers in the U.S. The expense of training and equipping them would be enormous.

"Not surprised the NRA reeled President Trump back in", Schumer said.

"The solution is to ban these military weapons from people who shouldn't have them", Weingarten said. "We are tasked with educating our students, growing them academically and personally, and that is just not something that should be put on the plates of teachers".

But as Trump hosted a listening session at the White House with survivors and family members of victims of school shootings, he floated the possibility of arming more teachers in schools. They love this country.

"So we have to do something that works", he said.

In recent days, Trump has endorsed modest gun control measures, including expanded background checks and increasing the age of purchase of semi-automatic weapons to 21 - but he did not expand on these ideas at CPAC, where delegates oppose gun control measures as infringements on Second Amendment gun rights. "This shouldn't happen. We go to an airport, I can't get on plane with a bottle of water, but we leave it to some animal to walk into a school and shoot our children".

Two other deputies were placed on restricted duty during an investigation to determine if "they could have done more or should have done more" ahead of the shooting, Israel said.
