Trump Calls for Armed Teachers, Secure Schools, Not Politics in NRA Speech

'Surely we can all agree our schools should not be the softest target, our schools should be the single hardest target in our country... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Former President Donald Trump on Friday at the National Rifle Association’s conference gave what many probably wished could have been the speech current President Joe Biden delivered in response to the horrific mass shooting in Ulvade, Texas.

In remarks that centered as much on honoring the victims of the elementary school massacre as it did politics, Trump focused his speech on finding solutions that aren’t about limiting the rights of law-abiding citizens, but about prioritizing what’s best for the country instead of what’s best for a radical leftist agenda.

Trump began his remarks by calling for a moment’s silence and, with a bell tolling, read the names of the 19 children and two teachers who were killed in the mass shooting, reported the Daily Mail.

“The monster who committed this crime is pure evil, pure cruelty, pure hatred, absolute pure hatred,” Trump said.

“And while those he slaughtered are now with God in heaven, he will be eternally damned to burn in the fires of hell.”

But the existence of evil, Trump said, “is not a reason to disarm law-abiding citizens.”

“The existence of evil is one of the very best reasons to arm law-abiding citizens.”

In that vein, Trump called for overhauling school security, to include ensuring every school building has a single entry-point, and armed law enforcement and metal detectors, along with training and arming teachers and school personnel.

“Surely we can all agree our schools should not be the softest target, our schools should be the single hardest target in our country,” Trump said.

“And that’s why as part of a comprehensive school safety plan, it’s time to finally allow highly trained teachers to safely and discreetly concealed carry, let them concealed carry.”

Trump also called for better prioritization of federal spending, with an emphasis on school safety instead of a failing foreign policy.

“If the U.S. has $40 billion to send to Ukraine, we should be able to do whatever it takes to keep our children safe at home,” Trump said.

“Before we nation build the rest of the world, we should be building safe schools for our own children in our own nation.”
