I never said I wanted to arm teachers

"You won't have, in my opinion, you won't have these shooters because these people are cowards", he said. That training includes securing their weapon so that others can't get to it and shooting in simulated, high-stress conditions.

Trump met with pupils, families and teachers affected by a Florida high school shooting in which 17 people were killed. "They'll frankly feel more comfortable having the gun anyway". Mr Trump responded by proposing expanded background checks for gun purchases, and a ban on automatic rifle sales to anyone under 21.

He added that it should not be easier to shoot up a school than a bank or a jewellery store and claimed: "The elites don't care not one whit about America's school system and school children". In the meeting he suggests that schools without guns inside of them are set up for attacks, and teachers with guns could avoid such tragic devastation if equipped with a firearm.

But delegates here voiced support for Trump's idea to arm teachers. He did not indicate how he arrived at this number.

"But you could have concealed on the teacher", Trump said.

Kingsburg Joint Union High School allowed teachers to carry concealed guns last school year until Governor Brown signed a bill in October to make schools gun free.

Tightening gun laws would mark a change in course for Trump, who has championed gun rights. He resigned from the sheriff's office on Thursday. "You need to have five or six", said Belemjian. Trump also backs training and arming teachers to provide another line of defense against attackers. "What they want is more restrictions on the law-abiding", LaPierre said.

Pretty much the only thing in that long-winded bit of word salad that makes sense is "not everybody has the aptitude for a gun", which is exactly the gist of many people's gun-control arguments, not the dang algebra teacher packing heat. One idea gaining traction is better security at school entrances, with armed guards and metal detectors. Dozens of teachers have posted their wish lists to Twitter and Instagram using the #ArmMeWith hashtag. He linked some airline pilots carrying guns to a decline in airplane hijackings as well.

"I didn't wake up thinking that this was going to happen on Valentine's Day and think that I'm going to be thrown into this", he said.
