Trumps Gun Plan to Include Encouraging States to Allow Armed School Staff
If President Trump’s ban on bump stocks goes through, he will have enacted more gun control in his first year and a half than Obama did in eight years in office.
Imagine, allowing a teacher to take advanced training, submission to background and fingerprint checks; just so they can have equal footing to their non-law abiding students.
Simply do away with “Gun Free Zones”
Make the crazies fear.
Wake up people . We already have a nics background check. No more period. No more government permission to exercise a constitutional right. Line in the sand right here right now. More gun control should result in scorched earth for the GOP. We should be rolling back gun control at a feverish pace but now we are going to pile on more when we control every branch of government? When would we ever reverse any gun control ?
If teachers are uncomfortable carrying guns, they should be forced to carry something like mace or a taser which will give them a prayer for a split second ambush to disable a gunman entering a classroom.
And, leaving us law abiding folks alone right? Right?
In other words, I don't believe the fed.gov needs to get into paying for folks’ licenses. I imagine that if the school boards asked, they would find plenty of already licensed teachers who would love to be able to carry at school. Federal funding just screams misappropriation.
Sometimes, we don't need the government and their offer of help. ;)
We have trained people to do exactly the wrong thing and that is to try to get away. Everyone should immediately close on the shooter. Yes the shooter might get one or two people but even they might survive since they would already be moving in. It only takes a split second for multiple people to close in and subdue a single person. More importantly once crazies know this is what will happen they won't even do it to begin with.
Once we make it known to all the would be lone gunman mass murderers that as soon as they fire the first shot they will be ATTACKED from every direction they will cease having ideas of these mass shooting all together. The last thing these nut jobs want is a fight, especially a fight they know they won't win. They want people to panic and wait to die so they can kill then either kill themselves or get killed by the police. They DO NOT want to get jumped on restrained then spend the rest of their miserable lives in prison. That fear alone will stop these shootings.
Now if you want to arm teachers or people at work fine but it's not really needed when you are talking about a lone gunman. Mace or a taser combined with everyone closing on the shooter would be just as effective if not more. The lone gunman mass murderer is the EASIEST of all killers to stop. Much easier problem than say stopping a 2 ton truck mowing down people on a sidewalk or a terrorist planting a bomb. Those problems are hard to solve.
I like arming teachers.
Just mak it so no one knows who is armed. Kind of like the Marshall on a plane.
Make it a biometrics gun. So only the teacher can use it.
Let’s get national reciprocity in this package; CCW holders are part of the answer, not the problem.
Legislation, Constitution, Toilet paper!
SHAME ON THOSE AR 15S
FOR WHAT HAPPENED AT THE PARKLAND SCHOOL
PREVIOUS GOVERNMENT POLICIES FAILURES
MUST BE HIDDEN/S
The inability to counter this perverted (they call progressive) agenda created by the democratic party ( in name only) has its goose stepping adherents in the media left make it up as guns and the NRA garbage through their swill mills. When it should be contested by GOP state and federal legislators who should be demanding investigative hearings exposing policy failures
DONT MENTION THIS
Besides examining the conduct ( cops told not to enter other dept called and does those cops disciplined because they did) and arrangements of the Broward County Sheriff’s Dept made with this school district performance failures due to policy. A dramatic reduction in disciplinary incidents at Parkland were reported after the selection of Obamas Chicago friend as school superintendent occurred which was publicly acclaimed.
Because that school district was receiving large grant money from Obamas Attorney General because of those results. That many critics claimed encouraged criminal activity. Which should require Trump Administration US Attorney General beside find out why when the FBI knew that Cruz who should not been able to purchase weapons did. And review these grant programs instituted by the previous Obama administration.

Later shocking details get posted
An administrative ban of bump stocks could give us exactly the legal standing needed to legalize new machineguns.
BATFE, under Obama, ruled bump stocks not machineguns. Many were made & bought legally. 922(o) bans post-’86 machineguns. Re-categorizing bump stocks as machineguns would put gov’t at fault for violations (BATFE violated 922(o)), grounds for challenging constitutionality of 922(o), bringing _Heller_’s M16 reference into play - which flatly said a ban on M16s is unconstitutional (but since wasn’t the point off the suit, was not held as a ruling).
Get this damn thing off life support.
Each day it continues is another day closer to NOV.
GOOD for President Trump! Arm the teachers. And also:
Bumpfire stocks are OBVIOUSLY not machine guns. BUT:
You say the anti-gunners on the march? LOL!
Give them a taste of THIS: Videos: How to Bumpfire Effectively without a Bumpfire Stock! Turn UP your sound!
No need for a Bumpfire stock. Amazingly fun! Accuracy is naturally compromised, though. Short handgun cartridges have the highest cyclic rate, since less bolt travel is needed.
Bumpfiring is 100% legal, and safe in a properly maintained modern sporting rifle. Some gun ranges do not like it, though, because they feel you dont have adequate control of the firearm. I am sure that could well be the case of you bumpfired a cartridge anywhere from 7.62 NATO (.308 Winchester) on up.
There is no machine gun ban. It’s NFA item obtained with additional scrutiny, paperwork and money.
So can we get rid of the gun free school zone law now? See this overturns it.
Short barreled rifles, shotguns and sound suppressors need off the NFA list, we need ccw reciprocity.
