"I feel it's a great idea but some people who are good people are opposed to it", he said.

The televised White House meeting came as students staged street protests across the country to demand stricter gun laws following the murder of 14 teens and three teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Trump also said that a teacher carrying a concealed weapon could have stopped Nikolas Cruz, the gunman who killed 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Florida, last week.

US President Donald Trump has proposed arming teachers and sports coaches, and using armed former military personnel to provide school security, in the wake of last week's deadly school shooting in Florida. He expressed the hope that they will do the right thing, suggesting that the powerful backer of gun owners' rights may cooperate in tighter gun controls.

He says what's needed now is a political settlement reached by the people who live there.

The Missouri State Teachers Association, which represents more than 47,000 teachers across the state, supports that method.

Parkland parent Andrew Pollack said that he was "pissed" as he described his daughter Meadow's horrific death to the president and other families present - she was shot nine times.

"There is nothing more important than the safety of our children", Scott said. "I can't get on the plane with a bottle of water, but we leave some animal to walk into a classroom and shoot our children".

"Our students do not need to be sitting ducks".

Eight states already allow teachers to carry firearms on school campuses (including Kansas, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming) and another six states (including Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri, and Maryland) are considering legislation to allow school personnel to carry concealed while on campus.

The debate breaches statehouse walls. Teachers are not even given adequate school supplies, they mostly have to purchase necessary supplies themselves.

"I think that if we find the policy solutions that make the most sense that we can get buy in for, we'll figure out the rest of the pieces that you outlined", he said.

"Let's get it done right", the President said of action on a variety of fronts to deal with school shootings. Armed teachers in the hall would slow them down and increase the risk to both teachers and law enforcement officers. A person who could do that without hesitation is not an individual who is psychologically well-suited for teaching. The teacher was injured when the bullet struck a toilet and caused it to explode.

Don't ask teachers to kill students. She paid a fine and took a firearm-safety class as part of a plea deal. They'll blink an eye or draw a breath before pulling the trigger.

Lalitha Vasudevan, a professor of technology and education at Columbia University's Teachers College, told ABC News that the conversation about arming teachers "presupposes that we're going to continue to have mass shootings".
