Teachers were taught to lock the door. Hide in the closet or under the desk. What is the teacher supposed to do through chalk at the shooter? No more.  Come on in MF.

 If some teachers are QUALIFIED TO HANDLE firearms, I see nothing wrong with it.  It is not WASHINGTONS job to protect schools across the country. It is up to school districts to determine what is best for them.. metal detectors, armed police officers on school property at the minimum.. this schools are a gun free zone, is a stupid policy.

Absolutely. It'll only result in more danger to first responders as well because of the confusion it'll cause. As well as greater casualties with untrained for these situations teachers now shooting more kids caught up in crossfire. Dumbest, most irresponsible and dangerous decision ever made!

These shooters of innocent young kids are sick mfing cowards-who choose schools because schools are
"gun free" zones. Their sick minds think they are really  something "important" when they come in with their assault weapons and start shooting with nothing to stop them.

If there were armed security or teachers there-these mfers would think twice before going in because they wont get far before being shot themselves like the pussies they are.

Please train and arm responsible personnel at school. We protect airports,govt buildings ,courthouses etc-but leave schools completely vulnerable in today's sick society??
Trump will move on this.

No, they don't. You're correct. They have drones,grenades, fighter jets, submarines and satellites . What do you think you're going to do with any gun or even modern day armed militia? You'd be toast in a matter of minutes. The 2nd Amendment was also greatly influenced by slave owners who wanted to defend their "right" to own slaves and secure the slave patrol militias they'd formed. The Constitution was always meant to be a living document that could be amended, and has been. It's not written in stone.

Here is an timeline of actual history not found on FoxNews:

1775 to 1784---Continental Army formed from militia from all 13 colonies

1784---Continental Army DISBANDED due to Americans distrust of standing armies with state militias becoming the nation's sole ground army...meaning no Federal Army until 1791(you history drop outs)

1791---2nd Amendment adopted establishing the right to bear arms in a well regulated state militia

1791---Establishment of The Legion of The United States, a field trained standing army to battle Indians on the Western Frontier

FROM 1791 TO THE CIVIL WAR the U.S. Army was small and used to defend the Frontier from Indian attacks with the exception of The War of 1812 and The Mexican-American War of 1846.


Cliff Notes for the reading impaired: There was NO Federal standing Army in 1789 only state militias.

Wake up America since the last economic crisis because of rising debt and the value of what you own going down in that time the wealth of the 1% who have all the wealth has tripled. Trump is not going to do anything that will harm the wealthier and he is sure not going to do anything to change that this 1% wealth be less than the total of the middle class and have nots which is about 90%. If he was going to enforce gun control this would upset these numbers so more innocent people are going to die. So keep drinking that Trump BS Kool-Aid nothing is going to change and America Will Not Be Great Again. What little will be put in your pockets is just smoke and mirrors from the 1% Smoking Gun.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.

This is the president’s highest job approval rating since mid-June of last year. President Obama earned 45% approval on this date in the second year of his presidency. tmbz1

“In less than eight weeks, we have tracked nearly 350 companies that have handed out bonuses as a result of tax reform . . . and we know that there are plenty of other small businesses who are doing the same that are just doing it under the radar.”

In fact, according to a recent survey, confidence among small-business owners just hit a record high, driven by tax reform. Small businesses are the engine of our economy, so this means more jobs and more opportunity in communities across the country."

Trump, if he runs, has a great chance of being re-elected.  Gillibrand, Cuomo, Sanders, Biden, Booker, Clooney, Oprah, etc., are pathetic candidates with NO platform to run on!  If the Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank projections of a possible first 1/4 GDP of "5.4%" turns out to be correct, what will the lying Democrats and the liberal media do then?  Obama had an average GDP of an abysmal "1.9%" over 32 quarters, a middle east in shambles, and a health care debacle for those who pay the bills.

Nonfarm payrolls jumped by "313,000" jobs last month, boosted by the largest gain in construction jobs since 2007, the Labor Department said on Friday!  The increase in payrolls last month was the biggest since July 2016 and was well above the roughly 100,000 jobs per month the economy needs to create to keep up with growth in the working-age population. U.S. job growth surged in February, recording its biggest increase in more than 1-1/2 years. 806,000 people entered the labor force in a sign of confidence in the job market. “The economy is simply too strong,” said Chris Rupkey, chief economist at MUFG in New York. “There’s no reason whatsoever for the Federal Reserve to have a stimulative monetary policy at this stage of the business cycle.” Economists expect the unemployment rate to fall to 3.5 percent this year.

In the deepening trade negotiations between China and the U.S., the bargaining chips are quite literally chips.

According to multiple reports, China has offered to increase the percentage of semiconductor chips it buys from American sources, replacing offerings from South Korea and Taiwan, if the two countries can come to an economic agreement on moving their trade relationship forward. The hope is that the redirected purchases could lower the trade deficit between China and the U.S., which hit an all-time high last year of $375 billion. China is the largest consumer of semiconductors in the world, so its trade decisions have an outsized impact on the industry and its players.

These negotiations are a response to the Trump administration’s announcement last Thursday that it would place a tariff on roughly $60 billion worth of Chinese goods, with a presumed focus on high-tech goods.  tmbz1
