Trump searches for answers amid wrenching stories from Florida school shooting

Trump searches for answers amid wrenching stories from Florida school shooting

The move comes as a Florida community grieving over the deaths of 17 people in a high school shooting last week demanded tougher gun control.

Since then, "me and my friends, we get scared when a vehicle drives by" Mr Zeif said.

He supported the idea of arming teachers, adding: "It stops here with this administration and me".

"... we will be hosting parents teachers and students here at the White House to discuss efforts to ensure safety at our schools".

President Donald Trump said that he is "strongly considering" allowing teachers to carry concealed firearms could help prevent mass shootings in schools like the one last week in Florida.

"We're going to be very strong on background checks", Trump said. "We must do more to protect our children", Trump said during a Medal of Valor ceremony Tuesday afternoon.

"It's not about gun laws right now - that's another fight, another battle", he said. But his most concrete suggestion was putting guns in the hands of teachers, and that was a worrying one.

Mr Trump who was speaking at the White House, said he had directed the justice department to propose a law to make the accessories illegal.

"What would you most want me to know about your experience?" was the top handwritten line on the card, as seen in a photo taken by The Associated Press.

"We cannot imagine the depth of their anguish, but we can pledge the strength of our resolve", he said of the victims and their families. "And a deranged sociopath on his way to commit an act of murder in a school knowing the outcome is going to be suicide is not going to care if there's somebody there with a gun". "I'm not going to sleep until it's fixed".

During the White House meeting, Andrew Pollack, father of slain student Meadow Pollack, told Mr Trump to "fix it".

What Malloy didn't make clear in the release is if he'd accept Trump's regulation absent federal legislation on bump stocks. "King David Cemetery, that is where I go to see my kid now". They floated possible fixes like putting volunteers with guns in schools, requiring a minimum age to buy guns, outlawing assault-style weapons or improving mental health care and background checks.
