Trump to unveil gun plan that includes arming teachers: report

TRUMP TO UNVEIL GUN PLAN THAT INCLUDES ARMING TEACHERS: REPORTp10215404.jpg

ㅤ”According to The Journal, the plan will signal the President’s support for two bills currently in Congress as well as setting up a commission to identify grant money for school systems that find a way to issue concealed-carry permits to some staff members to help guard against school shootings.

ㅤThe Justice Department, however, is considering a measure that would ban bump-stock weapons as part of an existing ban on machine guns, the Journal reported Saturday.”
