President Trump Suggests Bonuses for Teachers Who Get Gun Training

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is expected to speak at 2 p.m. ET.

"The notion that my kids are going to school with teachers that are armed with a weapon is not something I'm comfortable with", Rubio said.

Trump has received criticism for probing attendees at the meeting on their thoughts of arming teachers in classrooms to potentially deter or take down active shooters, but Scott did not share his thoughts on the matter. The youngest of Trump's five children, 11-year-old Barron, attends a private school in Potomac, Maryland.

"So, practically for free - you have now made the school into a hardened target", the President added, as he urged Congress and interest groups to join with him in acting. And when Stewart brought up increasing the frequency of active-shooter drills, Trump was quick to shut down the idea.

The president's tweets came one day after an emotional "listening session" with survivors of the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school in Parkland, Fla.

"We need offensive as well as defensive", he said.

The President has indicated a willingness to act on gun control, tweeting overnight that he supported stronger background checks with an emphasis on mental health, raising the age at which people can buy guns to 21 and banning bump stocks, which allow semiautomatic rifles to act like an automatic ones and spray bullets in quick succession.

Fred Abt, father of Parkland shooting survivor Carson Abt, said he had discussed with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos that rather than waiting for first responders to arrive, it would be more efficient to have firearms locked on school campuses.

After the horrific shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students and educators were killed on February 14 in the second-deadliest shooting at a U.S. public school, it has revived a long-running debate over gun rights in the US.

The president on Tuesday ordered the Justice Department to look at outlawing bump stocks, which were used in the shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada, last October that killed 58 people and wounded 851 others. And it would be - it's called concealed carry, where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them.

The US president also backed calls for improved background checks on gun buyers. The president of the 1.7 million-member American Federation of Teachers, Randi Weingarten, called arming teachers a frightful idea and said an educator's handgun would be no match for the assault-style weapons often wielded by attackers.

In a morning tweetstorm, Trump forcefully defended the proposal he floated a day earlier in a meeting with survivors of last week's Parkland shooting - but which is strongly opposed by teachers' unions, and numerous lawmakers from both camps.

"What I'd recommend doing is the people that do carry, we give them a bonus, we give them a little bit of a bonus", Trump said.

Assault rifles should be kept out of the hands of anyone under the age of 21, President Donald Trump declared on Thursday, defying his loyal supporters in the National Rifle Association amid America's public reckoning over gun violence. "But we leave some animal to walk into a school".
