Recognizing that ‘gun-free-zone’ schools are easy targets for shooters, President Trump has proposed arming about 20% of teachers with guns and paying them a small bonus. Instead of confiscating guns and implementing more gun regulations (which have never worked in the past), he proposes to encourage good guys to be ready, if necessary, to defend the students. -GEG

Just hours after President Trump angrily declared on Twitter that he never suggested that “teachers with guns” would be an appropriate deterrent to stop school shootings (before launching into a tirade about why doing precisely that would be a sensible solution), the president has proposed that the “20% or so” of teachers who agree to keep weapons should receive “a little bit of a bonus.”

“You can’t hire enough security guards, but you could have concealed [carry weapons] on the teachers,” Trump said, according to a pool report cited by the Daily Beast.

“You won’t have these shootings because these people are cowards. They’re not going to walk into a school if 20% of the teachers have guns. And what I would recommend doing is, the people who do carry, you give them a little bit of a bonus.”
