President Trump on Wednesday hosted families and survivors of school shootings at the White House, as students in Florida are setting off a chain reaction across the country advocating for stronger gun laws.
"A gun free zone to a maniac, because they're all cowards, a gun-free zone is 'let's go in there and let's attack, because bullets aren't coming back at us".
"This shouldn't happen. We go to the airport, I can't get on a plane with a bottle of water, but we leave some animal to walk into a school and shoot our children".
President Trump seems to think the way to solve the problems with school shootings is more guns. specifically, arming teachers.
Lawmakers in Tallahassee said they would consider raising the age limit to 21, the same standard for handguns and alcohol, though the state Senate on Wednesday opted not to take up a gun control measure, noted Reuters.

President Donald Trump suggested that teachers who carry concealed weapons in schools should receive bonuses during a meeting on school safety on Thursday.
"If you had a teacher who was adept at firearms, they could very well end the attack very quickly", Trump noted, when it was his turn to speak.
Apart from endorsing this idea during the one-hour-long event, Trump also said that it is important to have more mental institutions and hospitals to house worrisome teenagers.
He brought up those claims at Thursday's session, suggesting that "highly adept" teachers that do carry "we give them a bonus" adding that armed teachers would need training and should be paid extra money.
Close-up pictures of the note revealed that it had five points, of which the first was a reminder to ask the question: "What would you most want me to know about your experience".
