CNN to hold town hall with students, Florida politicians

"They hate the NRA, they hate the Second Amendment, they hate individual freedom".

Just minutes before LaPierre spoke, President Donald Trump tweeted that he supports the NRA and the work LaPierre is doing.

Maybe the kids will save us in the end-and not a moment too soon.

"I understand you're standing up for the NRA and I understand that's what you're supposed to do".

"As usual, the opportunists wasted not one second to exploit tragedy for political gain", LaPierre said, adding that 20th-century community organizer "Saul Alinsky would have been proud of the breakneck speed for gun control laws and the breathless national media eager to smear the NRA".

Trump offered his support for giving teachers guns during an extraordinary White House meeting Wednesday with often-tearful, sometimes angry students and parents affected by school shootings - including several from the high school in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were killed on February 14. Numerous teens and their parents taking part have called for more curbs on guns.

LaPierre, speaking at the annual gathering of the Conservative Political Action Conference, portrayed the NRA as the true protector of the country's schoolchildren and offered free training to those who want to bear arms to protect schools.

"We share a goal of safe schools, safe neighborhoods and a safe country", LaPierre said.

Melting Ice Sheets Speeding Up
Rather, it's a vehicle driving through a city, going faster or slower depending on external parameters. Experts say sea level rise is caused by warming of the ocean and melting from glaciers and ice sheets.

In addition to hosting "The Dana Show", a three-hour Monday through Friday radio show on RadioAmerica, Loesch also hosts "The DL", a show discussing Second Amendment Rights for NRA TV.

WHAT HE REALLY MEANT: It says "I hear you" right here on my cue card. "Teachers who are adept at firearms should be armed". The FBI has said it failed to act on the tip. "You guys love it", she said.

Trump floated the idea of arming teachers and school staff, which was met with support from numerous attendees.

But the NRA supported President Donald Trump's decision to sign a bill passed by congressional Republicans that rescinded an Obama-era law that made it more hard for mentally challenged people to obtain guns.

At an hourlong meeting on school safety with 10 state and local officials, Trump said armed teachers with an aptitude for guns would deter would-be shooters. And we need to take guns away from them forever.

Trump has publicly and privately floated actions that would be at odds with some positions of the NRA - a group that heavily backed him during his campaign for the presidency - including suggesting that the age for purchasing assault rifles be raised from 18 to 21. Directing his comments at Loesch, he said the NRA can't say it stands for people until it says it wants less weapons.

But Bratton argued Thursday that gun violence has been on the decline in the Big Apple for decades thanks to stricter gun control and also praised a 1994 federal assault weapons ban that expired in 2004.

After 19-year-old alleged gunman Nikolas Cruz opened fire in the halls of the Florida high school last Wednesday, Loesch tweeted about the mental health treatment of alleged gunman Nikolas Cruz and questioned "How could protocol change to better follow up on the massive red flags exhibited by this murderer?"
