What messed up priorities. Instead of giving our teachers bonuses for reacting to school shootings we should PREVENT school shootings.
I think that was Trump's point.

Arming Teachers does not prevent school shootings they just provide a means to react to them.
Columbine had armed guards.
Limiting magazine capacity has a far bigger impact. often shooters are subdued while reloading.
looking at FBI stats on 160 mass shootings from 2000-2013,
90 were ended by the shooter themselves
21 were stopped by being restrained by unarmed persons
only 5 were stopped by gunfire from non-police and 2 were shot by police
Out of 160 only 7 were stopped by "good guys with guns"
3 times as many were stopped because they paused to reload
