President Donald Trump hosted a group of parents at the White House on Wednesday to discuss ideas on how to prevent school shootings, and many of the parents responded that they want their children protected by armed teachers and armed security at schools.

Trump asked the adults in the room, most of whom were parents who lost a child in a school shooting, what recommendations they had for preventing mass shootings and the majority answered with solutions that have nothing to do with gun control.

The very first parent to respond immediately said that teachers and administrators need to be armed and that schools should have undercover security working other positions in schools who can respond to shootings the moment they happen.


Not all parents and teachers in attendance liked the idea of arming teachers, however, they provided other solutions including adding security checkpoints at schools and improving mental health.
