Would've run into Florida school shooting even without weapon: Trump
Washington: US President Donald Trump today said he would have run into Florida school to save the students from a gunman even without a weapon.
He was criticising an armed sheriff's deputy who did not confront the shooter at the school early this month who killed 17 people, mostly students.
"We have to take steps to harden our schools so that they are less vulnerable to attack. This includes allowing well-trained and certified school personnel to carry concealed firearms. At some point, you need volume. I don't know that a school is going to be able to hire a hundred security guards that are armed," he said.
Trump ridiculed the performance of deputy sheriffs on duty at the time of the attack saying it was "disgusting".
"I got to watch some deputy sheriffs performing this week. And they weren't exactly Medal of Honour winners," Trump said.
