President Trump Reveals Plan of Action to Improve School Safety

On Monday, President Trump took to Twitter, where he discussed school safety, as well as gun policies, in the aftermath of the Valentine’s Day school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

The president touted “very strong improvement and strengthening of background checks,” which he said would be “fully backed by the White House,” and added that legislation is “moving forward.”

President Trump doubled down on allowing “highly trained” teachers to conceal carry firearms, which he said would be “subject to state law,” and went on to say that the controversial “bump stocks” will “soon be out.”

Following calls from some to raise the age limit on purchasing a rifle from 18 to 21, President Trump said that he and his administration are “watching court cases and rulings before acting,” and stressed the importance of leaving the decision up to the states.

The president strongly denounced the “gun free zone” policy, saying, “If schools are mandated to be gun free zones, violence and danger are given an open invitation to enter,” and pointed out that those intent on hurting others “will only go where there is no deterrent!”
