Our banks, our airports, our National Basketball Association games, our NFL games, our office buildings, our movie stars, our politicians, they're all more protected than our children at school, ' LaPierre said.
The Republican president also backed calls for improved background checks on gun buyers.
When asked why she and Wheaton started the #ArmMeWith campaign, Bertels told INSIDER that they wanted to give educators a "community-driven way to voice their frustrations with policy suggestions, like arming teachers".
"Let teachers teach", NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill said Friday following a breakfast at New York Law School where he was the keynote speaker. But Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed last week, noted the previous school massacres and raged over his loss, saying this moment isn't about gun laws but about fixing the schools.
"Where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them", he said, while acknowledging the plan was controversial, "they would go for special training and they would be there, and you would no longer have a gun-free zone". "There are many ideas I have, there are many ideas that other people have, and we're going to pick out the strongest ideas, the most important ideas". He has also floated - in listening sessions, on Twitter, and most recently at CPAC - giving guns to school workers.
Spokesman Raj Shah later said Trump was concerned about the name and would prefer calling them safety drills. Marco Rubio (R-FL) mentioned the possibility of an assault weapons ban as though it would be a very bad thing, leading the crowd to erupt in cheers.
Some teachers have expressed mortification over the idea and questioned how it might work in practice.
Before that, NEA and AFT back a nationwide 17-minute "March for Our Lives" walkout of students, parents and teachers at 10 am local time on March 14.
"I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health. Their job is to inspire, their job is to keep their kids safe, and being the front line of defense for that from a preventative perspective is one thing, but in terms of arming them and asking them to make that sort of decision in a crisis moment, that's completely unacceptable and not a solution that should be pursued in any way".
Trump sounded confident of his ability to get the NRA onside. "I really think the NRA wants to do what's right".
Davina Eccard, of the Tactical Intelligence Group, said a person must be able to properly handle a firearm amid the stress of active shooter situation. They love this country. "We are educators. We disseminate knowledge and not weaponry", Keith Williams, executive director of Memphis Shelby County Education Association, said. "Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks!". Rubio expressed support for all three on live TV as survivors of the Florida school shooting grilled him. The availability of military assault rifles to any individual who can pay for them has been a prime factor in the appalling number of mass shootings in America.
That opposition was evident just outside Washington on Thursday.
Spokeswoman Dana Loesch pointed to the journalists in back of the room. The idea that we would be now asking them to fight on the front lines of this war to combat mass shootings, to me, is preposterous.
"I'd rather have somebody who loves their students and wants to protect their students than someone standing outside who doesn't know anybody", he said. "Where's the CNN town hall for (black mothers in) Chicago?"

The Olympics happen every four years, but it's a year-round thought process for the women on those two teams . I think I'm sort of bittersweet right now that the journey is over just because these women are incredible.
