Pence addresses gun debate by touting school safety at CPAC

NRA's Florida lobbyist

The additional guns would be inside schools.

The notion of arming teachers at USA public schools, which are largely governed by states, local councils and school boards, has been raised by some politicians in the past but has been dismissed by many critics as fraught with danger.

LaPierre said the NRA will provide support and guidance on how schools can protect themselves free of charge.

Where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them, they would go for special training and they would be there, and you would no longer have a gun-free zone. It may be 10 per cent, it may be 40 per cent.

The National Rifle Association usually maintains a large presence at the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual political confab that draws thousands of conservative activists from across the country.

Mr Trump also said he was open to looking at age limits, among other measures, and lamented the closure of many mental institutions that helped assess violent people.

During a CNN town hall on Wednesday night, one of the students asked Sen.

Some teachers have expressed mortification over the idea and questioned how it might work in practice.

Mr Pence also praised the President's meeting with the survivors and parents of shooting victims at the White House on Wednesday.

But that's only half of his proposed solution.

LaPierre said criminals should not have access to a gun, and someone who shows warning signs of mental disturbance should show up in background checks.

These ideas face challenges from the right.

The irony is that when Yousaf Raza Gilani was disqualified by the same Supreme Court, the PML-N had hailed the judgment. He said all decisions of the Supreme Court needed to be accepted and implemented in true letter and spirit.

Limiting the size of gun magazines and raising the age limit on buying rifles, including guns like AR-15 style rifles, are both positions that the NRA opposes. It has drawn a mixed reaction in a country fiercely divided over how to curb mass shootings and everyday gun violence.

The NRA donated $20million to Trump's presidential campaign.

"I don't think I'll be going up against them".

"I spoke to them [NRA leaders], and they're ready to do things".

"If they seize power... our American freedoms could be lost and our country will be changed forever", he continued. "They're patriots", Trump said.

LaPierre railed against "the shameful politicization" of the recent mass shooting at a Florida high school by "a poisonous movement" that seeks to exploit gun violence for political gain. "I've spoken to them often in the last two days".

But it was clear when NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch was introduced as the first big-name speaker, that LaPierre's appearance would soon follow.

A professional gambler killed 58 people and injured more than 500 with rifles fitted with bump stocks in Las Vegas in the USA state of Nevada last October in the worst mass shooting in morden US history.

"We share a goal of safe schools, safe neighborhoods and a safe country", LaPierre said. "I'm not saying you love the tragedy, but I am saying you love the ratings".

"On bump stocks, let me say this, the fact is that the Obama administration a couple years ago legalized a device, their ATF, that fuzzed the line between semi-automatics and fully automatics. Crying white mothers are ratings gold".

Many politicians, however, are being forced to weigh the potential cost at the ballot box of receiving NRA donations in the wake of the Florida shootings and a passionate call for action by numerous victims' families and students. It should not be easier for a madman to shoot up a school than a bank or jewellery store or some Hollywood gala. "Evil must be confronted with all necessary force to protect our kids". The NRA executive accused the Democratic party of using last week's Florida school shooting to abolish the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
