'I Think Arming Teachers Is Not A Bad Idea'- Ivanka Trump

President Donald Trump's daughter and White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump has lend her voice to the popular discussion about arming educators. While Ivanka Trump didn't entirely support the idea of arming teachers, went ahead to say "... it's not a bad idea" and "...it needs to be discussed". This she said on Sunday on an interview with NBC News.

"Obviously, there would have to be an incredibly high standard for who would be able to bear arms in our school," Ivanka Trump said in an interview with NBC News that aired Sunday during her trip to the closing ceremonies at the 2018 Winter Olympics." But I think that there is no one solution to creating safety."

Ivanka didn't break from her father though, and continued to say that qualified educators who are capable of carrying guns "is not a bad idea."
"I think that having a teacher who is armed, who cares deeply about her students or his students and who is capable and qualified to bear arms is not a bad idea, but it is an idea that needs to be discussed," she said.

President Donald Trump last week initially suggested teachers should undergo firearm training and be allowed to carry concealed weapons inside schools — a controversial statement in which several members of his party have broken with, such as Sen. Marco Rubio and Florida Gov. Rick Scott.

His idea was a result of a listening session after meeting with survivors, parents and gun control activists at the White House after former student Nikolas Cruz allegedly killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

The president later clarified that only "gun adept teachers with military or special training experience" should be allowed to carry concealed guns.

Over the weekend, Trump said that armed educators would get annual training and a yearly bonus, but ultimately left the decision "up to the states."
