    Don't arm teachers!
    It's so freakin stupid and how long till a teacher goes crazy and kill students?
    There is a lot of countries where guns are legal at a young age, but there is still more shootings in USA. Find out why that is!
    Prevent more deaths!

    Everyone says it's not the time to debate but to grief so I want to know when is the right time to fix the laws of approving minors with guns do we have to wait for another school to start another shooting go to vote for this insanity to stop innocent kids in the hands of evil Vote please i usually do not vote but this shooting in Florida Vegas and Texas inspired me to vote I have 2 kids I don't ever want them to go through this please be a voice and vote it's time to say enough.

    Trump is a glorified murderous corrupted liar. He doesn’t care about these students and that innocent souls were taken away. How can I prove that if you ask? Nikolas Cruz was his diehard supporter who committed the atrocity and Donny boy refuses to condemn him.

    Make USA Great Again by voting blue in November everyone. Get out and vote so we can take our country back, the gop can give a shit about how much of an asshole from hell Trump truly is

    But just cause you kids got shot, doesnt mean I can go against my NRA cronies and their monetary support , I used to buy me 6 ft painting of myself. We have to focus on the important issues here, like "did you see how big my hands were in the painting kids?" How about I have us get you guys some guns too, and you can have shootouts in between classes. See kids, thats what I am,,a problem solver, ok bring in the next group!

  • Lizzy

    I'm sorry but what will giving teachers guns do? I bet there will be at least one crazy teacher out there to get mad and start shooting. Giving teachers guns does not make anybody feel safe. And I also think people need to stop blaming mental health, if it was a Muslim that shot the school people would say it was a terrorist attack. But when there is a white guy you blame it on mental health. Yes he did have issues, he lost his family and maybe did have mental problems but I just think people should stop saying it was mental health. I am only in 7th grade but I do feel I have quite a lot of knowledge. Anyways sorry if I possibly offended anyone.

    at 1:24:20 the President asks if people like his idea (armed teachers etc.) and the video cuts and returns again. It appears maybe someone did not like his idea and the video was edited out.

    I'm a Republican and wholeheartedly believe in background checks. Nickolas Cruz had had MANY complaints of violance with guns and knives and the authorites failed to press charges to not give him a record. There are already very strict laws in place in every state when it comes to gun ownership. Tragedies like this are not because of the lack of laws but the lack of enforcing laws already in place like bringing rounds of ammo to school and knives, and threatening neighbors and shooting in a residential area like Nickolas Cruz did on MULTIPLE occasions...also in Florida you don't have to have a permit to have a pistol either like in my state of NY. Violent criminals can not have guns by law...if the NUMEROUS people who were informed about Nickolas Cruz's actions had TAKEN action then he at least wouldn't have had firearms...

    Trump is a coward and lackey for his "base". The NRA who has bought and paid for him. He is a complete fraud. Hatred and selfishness oose out of him. He couldn't even remember to say "I hear you", even though his puppeteers wrote it on his little cheat sheet. Already rated the worst president in history, he will be impeached and/or indicted before his term is up. Mark my words.

    I want my tax dollars to go to armed guards in schools. I want my tax dollars to go towards trained people who can lock doors remotely and have eyes on the whole school. I want my tax dollars to go towards easy exits in every room of the school. These are solutions, not taking away the second amendment.

    While all churches have security, schools should have monitor viewing all entrances. Alarm on doors when opened necessary for code to turn off. Prevention should have been long ago. Kids or public places are not 50% safe any more. That freedom is over, events are risky too.

    Last week a Presidential Portrait was unveiled with a Repeating Back Ground
    Some say it is the snake in the Garden of Eden. Others say it is just a garden variety con-man or 'snake in the grass' scam artist. Most acknowledge that the theme of 'Repeating Pattern' is a Back Ground Checker'd
    I had no idea if it was real or if the video was a prank. If it was real, it meant it was purposely designed to harmful, incite discord, inflamatory reactions, nothing peaceful. I thought it was a really sick joke not funny at all.
    The next day I discovered Obama really did hire the artist for his portrait and admires his art. So the woman in the video was really telling the truth
    The radio today says that a teenager who had been kicked out of school 3 times shot people and delusional heterophobic politicos who've destroyed our education system are screaming the shooting tragedy is President Trump's fault
    That of course made everyone wonder what kind of paintings, decorations politicos homes are decorated with. What are role models - grade school teachers 'Expected' to explain to children right now? If a number of them quit / protest the heterophobic jibberish they would be replaced with________. Very similar to what Obama did to identify and then 'weed out' a large number of good, decent, honorable military officers during his presidency.
    Chaos brought to you by Mutual of Obamaha and the Clinton Foundation.
    I sincerely believe the Mutual of Obamaha Gang all just signed their own death warrants.
    No matter how many people they have killed, no matter how many homes and livelihoods they've destroyed, Life Love Music and Laughter ARE Going To Go On Without Them ☺

    I wonder why classrooms and other key points in a schoolyard can't be fitted with remote controlled guns that pop out of the ceiling like sprinklers and are used by police or experts in drone warfare to target an active shooter. A few armed drones wouldn't go astray either. This technology is just around the corner because an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. It would cost a lot of money but the public relations payoff if it worked would outweigh the cost. Sending cops there is too slow.

america the evil fuckers would have a all out ball game and openly kill as many as possible Americans will bleed then there are ones willing to go that far number one reason hillary lost to start this comment and if anyone is reading this show the world what im saying i love this country and i will always be thankful for our country to be where it is if there was no guns more blood shed in our streets and the young ones that had to indoor the horrible event in Florida had to happen the way it did yall kids need to stop saying its trumps fault its like trump told that kid that killed 17 kids to kill as many as you can then get back to me and then ill pay you i mean come on yall kids need to stop and realize as ill say welcome to America united we stand divided we fall i cant even imagine how things would be in 10 years from today the left is playing out these incidents and just sitting back and waiting patiently to make there next move in all the wrong places just because hillary loosing not once but twice thats has a reason for that to accure you kids need to be carful on what you say because there are some crazy ass individuals that dont give a fuck plus anti Americans if guns where banned there will be a large amount of blood shed in America then the ones that could have used a gun to protect there familys to be gunned down after breaking into peoples homes and kill familys and get away with it cause there would not be able to track down guns in bad i mean bad peoples hands then what how would yalk kids to handle that protesting dosent allways work like that you kids should be a little more honest with reality is that to hard to handel wake up yall not the only people in this world with issues look at war islamic countries come hear to put there agenda in our faces its not trumps fault why dont all you kids sit down and ask obama questions on why he never did anything while terroist where killing Americans very easy bombs in boston marathon and goes back to the Busch era about 911 you kids need to carefully think deeply on what you may show on how you feel and see as one coming together and tackle the main goals and stop making it seem like we have no choice to take away the second amendment watch if this takes place which i hope to god this horrible event will fall into the laps on democrats and put the real fear and danger into the ones in America who will never in a life time get the true feeling on being a real american with pride and that will be me im a real American and i will never back down to what i believe is right will law and constitution you kids are the future of America i mean do you even see how things have tooken a hard flip on how this country has its ways on handling situations thats why we have to keep thank you for reading this leave comments on how what you think about this so kids stay in school and say no to drugs im 6 years clean i struggled with a addiction problems drank all the time smoked weed everyday for years im surprised my lungs healed after i quite smoking cigarettes i use to drink and drive drink very heavy experimented with coke weed meth herion lsd ecstasy so this killing of 17 innocent students that where killed should have never took place for the young ones these things happen unfortunately in the most tragically plots of someone that would stoop that low to get satisfaction for there own needs to feel normal but ill say it rap music now a days is infecting the minds of millions thats kinda like brain washing humans to hear see taste hold throw keep destroy kill cheat hate fight push take hurt cry pain saftey life death heart bad evil fact lies greed trick plots at the end of the day this is what we are facing its like there shoving this into peoples eyes to maybe not wanting to see and just live their lives peacefully and share love with familys across this amazing country dont loose a grip on what the American people expect in building lifes not loosing those lives that are closer too we all have heart but sometimes these hearts are being ripped right out of our chest and that cant be replaced once its gone all hope could be less wanting then more wanting be safe peoples and see the light is hear but sometimes you have to search for the light and fight threw the dark god bless America amen also im allmost done expressing my feelings my baby mama put a gun in her mouth and pulled the trigger so i too know how it feels to loose a love one she was my all and she left me with my daughter and her baby boy from another father not being able to not spend time with her mom so we all have loved lost ones see not just the schools its every where its an not wanting event to have to live with i too suffer from this and ill never forget

    Here is what your real problem is if you succeed with eliminating machine guns . Bombs . They will learn to make bombs.
    In the meantime , it is insane for teens to have machine guns because most schools always scapegoat and bully people and most systems do the same so you will always have teens who are tempted by the automatic gun.
    It's insane for anyone to have a machine gun
    If a shooter has a gun ,people can charge him and bring him down with so few bullets . With a machine gun're done . I am surprised anyone gets out alive . I was happy to hear there were so few deaths because an automatic is a lot more dangerous than that.

    Here's the real shocker . The US has 300 shootings like this each year . Unbelieveable.
    An armed teacher will frightening minorites . Students will be tempted to access the gun which must be readily available (within a few seconds) .
    You see how shooters are getting more creative . They want the challenge or will shoot the teacher first .
    Most people and first responders are often too traumatized to react . It's only in the movies that they think clearly and react quickly.

I hope Americans never go through a government like the Brazilian "middle communist" government ... We live here without defense against criminals and corrupt, they take our weapons and criminals have more guns than ever, the Brazilian government makes us like rabbits amid foxes. And I pray for the day when Brazil can have free people who can protect themselves from evil, because evil is not fought by roses and apple juice, evil is fought by good people with war power. If you know a Brazilian, tell him that Brazil is collapsing, and we need to find someone like Donald Trump, like Jair Bolsonaro, people who really want to free us, people who want to improve our lives.

    The problem are not the guns or the assault weapons, the problem is the people that have access to them when they don't have the maturity or the responsibility to carry them. The Second Amendment must remain intact, without the second amendment we become unsafe and vulnerable, that's why it was enacted. Don't be confused by those that seek desperately to disarm us so they can over power us and enslave us

Talk to Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell about all of this, people! Those effers are the ones with blood on their names. THEY have taken MILLIONS of DOLLARS from the NRA (and Russian, btw, have laundered money through the NRA to vote AGAINST Hilary!). The GOP is bought and paid for by the NRA and Russians! They will NOT vote AR-15 off the list EVER because the NRA doesn't want that. They will NOT be able to pass the age raised up on gun sales because the NRA doesn't want it. There are letters from the NRA to every elected official REQUIRING each candidates stance on the 2nd Amendment and THAT determines whether or not and how much they will fund their campaigns! Good gawd! This is being in a headlock by gun selling greedy bastards! I've HAD IT with all this pretending and lies from Drumpf and the sellout GOP.

    The kids want a ban on the sales of AR15s and all assault weapons and to have all such currently owned weapons confiscated.

In order to do that, all politicians who currently take bribe money from the NRA have to be voted out of office so that reasonable and compassionate politicians can take their places.

    If gun need to be ban, what about clinics that kill unborn babies? I do not understand about the liberals now.

      REAL HUMAN CHILDREN WITH NAMES just died. Their body barely cold. You want to make it about your non-human with no names. You don't have enough humanity in you to care aboout REAL HUMANS. Go pray for your soul or burn in hell.

      1) If your heart was broken, you'd be dead
      2) This is about the victims of gun violence. Get your head out of your ass and you might realize this is not the place to post your political/religious agenda.
      3) You have more empathy for less developed, non-viable life rather than fully developed humans with full mental and emotional capacities? Hmmmm...

    KEEP IN MIND that neither Presidents Clinton or Obama did anything about the gun issue - and together they were in office for 16 years. Trump's been in office for about 1 year. Obama didn't even do anything about it when he had a Democrat majority in Congress!

    Assault weapons belong in the military, not on the fucking streets in the hands of kids, teens or young adults. This is pathetic that this keeps happening and fuck all is being done about it, absolutely pathetic! I thank God everyday that I live in Canada where guns are illegal and healthcare is free. Although we have an asshole for PM, Justin Trudeau who is doing everything he can to destroy us, Canadians are strong and we will overcome his dumbass. Vote him out in 2019. My prayers and condolences to the victims, their families and all the survivors. I’m so tired of saying that... this needs to STOP NOW!!!

    The right to self defense is one of our most fundamental rights. Few people will argue against that. However, some believe that people should not be allowed to arm themselves. Libertarians strongly disagree. Imagine a small person, walking home after a late shift at work. Imagine that person is attacked by someone twice their size. The victim fights back but is unable to defend themselves against the much larger attacker. Now imagine if the victim was armed. With the help of a gun, the victim has a chance at self defense against the much larger attacker. Gun rights are important for everyone, but especially those that are physically weaker. Banning guns would not curb violence or deaths…it will just change the nature of violence and deaths. It would result in violent criminals having more power to perpetrate violence against innocent people. Violent criminals will be emboldened if they know that average Americans are unable to defend themselves. And banning guns would mean people who should be free to go about their business, for example traveling home from work after dark, will live in greater fear. It will mean that people who live in more dangerous areas (and who are typically poorer) have fewer options to defend themselves and their families. Libertarians support people’s rights to defend themselves and to arm themselves. We see it as immoral for government to try to prevent someone from doing so.

    These kids need to speak their mind more. I don't know how the trauma of what they went through plays into how they spoke, but their responses were too short and respectful, they need to understand that their voices hold far more weight than any of the adults in the room because they were there. Schools institutionalize kids to think that they have to wait until they are adults before they can meaningfully contribute to society. But that's BS and it took me a long time to realize that the waiting period is self-imposed.

    Listen you don't have to like the guy. But at 50:20 with the father of the girl killed. Trump is tearing just a bit. I think he has very simple emotions. And the simple anger of that father resonated deeply with him.

      It's been two weeks since I wrote this comment and it's sad to see how much people don't want to give the guy even one second of credit. A smidgen. The father is a new yorker who speaks Trump's language. Simple anger. Pissed off. Wants to react. That's Trump as his essence. But Trump also is a macho Man who has this twisted need to keep anything and everything emotional within lest it be considered a weakness. He's not going to wipe tears away. He's not going to actually cry. Because that's a weakness. You have to accept that fact about him. Sorry that bothers all of you

      They have to do both. Change laws, and make public places more secure.

    • Oneness100
      Oneness100 Year ago

      Heck, a person can be off the school grounds with a good sniper rifle/scope and pick kids off like cans in your backyard and they can be several hundred yards off under cover and it would take them a while to pin point them down. So having a bunch of guards on school grounds can't prevent that.
      You'd have to have bullet proof glass on all windows, you'd have to have those expensive security doors, and a team of armed guards, etc. etc. That costs money, which isn't available.

    • Oneness100
      Oneness100 Year ago

      A bandaid is only so effective, with what you are saying.
      Do you know how much money it takes to make every school secure? Remember, it's almost impossible to make every school secure, even if there was enough money. How many banks get robbed every year? THOUSANDS. Most of them are also done, with, uh hm, with at least one gun. And Banks typically have guards on staff and banks are much smaller than a typical school. You are talking about something that's also unobtainable to stave off a possible situation of a shooting at a school. Some schools are quite large and it would take a team of people, video surveillance equipment throughout, and people watching the surveillance monitors.
      What you want is also a pie in the sky. It's just as easy to do both as it is to do what you are talking about.

    • Toraguchi Toraguchi

      Oneness100 A total waste of my time reading all that. Immediate action and achievable goals. That's what we want. Changing gun regulations etc is pie in the sky talk. And while you fight for gun regulation another shooting will have taken place. Just make the schools secure, then worry about gun regulation. You'll be lucky if you get something done in 30 years. Any monster who is thinking at this juncture - more shootings implies more pressure for changing gun laws - deserves to be shot.

    I was so-o-o- hopeful when I saw the President and Vice-President actually listening to the Parkland students and parents and then, not even 2 hours later, I read and saw the White House push back. Chump and the Senate and Congress are going to make it mandatory for TEACHERS to be armed and carry weapons??? Are you kidding me that you are going to DUMP this on the teachers? No other country in the WORLD makes their teachers carry weapons. I have 2 sons that are teachers. Both of them peace loving individuals and now you are telling teachers of this country they will have to decide whether to shoot someone?? WHAT THE HELL?? All I can hear from the NRA and President Chump is ---- ITS YOUR WAY OR THE HIGHWAY ---- Let them know we have had enough !!! Raising the buying age to 21 is not acceptable. Neither is reversing the background checks Chump overturned last week. I was surprised they banned the Bumstocks. But now is your time kids. It says in the Bible -- "And a child shall lead them" .. Make the most of this opportunity the Lord has handed you.

    • Trish6704

      You don't achieve a peaceful society by packing a gun. What I didn't tell you was my family has been struck by gun violence beyond belief. You see my eldest son (who is a teacher) had a fiance. 10 years ago she was gunned down by a stalker to a point where there was nothing left of her. My son walked in during the middle of the carnage. The stalker put a gun to his own head and blew his brains out in front of my son. My son spent 6 months in a mental hospital that specializes in PTSD. The NRA doesn't tell you about the aftermaths of these stories. People think its over and done with once the victim is in the ground. Chump and LaPierre know these things -- THEY JUST DON'T CARE. -- NO GUNS except for those who should have them (police) and military. Unless you experience such tragedy first hand, you have no idea.

      Trish6704 I'd much rather have an armed teacher with my child while they're at school than an unarmed teacher who can't defend my child against an armed attacker. Banning guns and passing more gun laws defys common sense and fixes nothing and it would make the public that much more unsafe because then only the criminals and those who wish to cause people harm have guns. I'll never give up any of my guns because I will never give up the ability and the right to defend and protect myself and my family.

I think you are perfectly capable of expressing your emotions without insukting me or my country. why are you coming for Canada? we here certainly do not need your opinion, currently conquering the Winter Olympics, being one of the biggest and most peaceful countries in the world and so on. The point I was trying to make is that arming teachers will only make the states seem like a much more violent country than the globe already think it is. And it will be.
