During his speech at CPAC 2018, President Donald Trump made it clear – gun-free zones are useless and help nobody.
Check it out…
From The Hill:
President Trump is expected to slam “gun-free zones” at schools during a speech Friday before the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
According to excerpts of Trump’s speech released by the White House shortly before the president took the stage, Trump will call for “commonsense measures” aimed at reducing gun crimes. Part of that plan includes arming arming school officials — a strategy he’s warmed up to in the wake of last week’s deadly shooting at a Florida high school, that left 17 dead and 14 others injured.
“When we declare our schools to be gun-free zones it just puts our students in more danger – well-trained gun-adept teachers and coaches should be able to carry concealed firearms,” Trump will tell the crowd at CPAC, held just outside of Washington D.C.

During a listening session with school shooting victims’ families and friends, President Trump agreed with a participant’s contention that faculty should be properly trained and armed if they choose.
Trump said background-check policy must also be very strong as well.
“After we do that, when we see there’s trouble [with a potential suspect] we have to nab them,” Trump said.

In a gun-free zone, innocent people are sitting ducks.
It takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun. That’s the bottom line.
