    President Trump plans to unveil a proposal on Sunday that would encourage school systems around the country to allow armed staff on school premises, The Wall Street Journal reports. According to The Journal, the plan will signal the president's support for two bills currently in Congress as well as setting up a commission to identify grant money for school systems that find a way to issue concealed-carry permits to some staff members to help guard against school shootings.

We cannot continue to be passive when the only person who's armed in a school shooting situation is the shooter himself, the psychopath.

And when...
