During a Wednesday press conference, President Donald Trump said he would prefer police "take the guns first" and "go through due process second" to prevent mass shootings like the one that happened on Valentine's Day in Parkland, Florida.


"I like taking the guns early," the president remarked amid lawmakers gathered for an announcement of a bipartisan school safety and gun control bill.

The remarks, naturally, were not missed by Twitter.

"If Obama said this, Fox News might actually implode," the Toronto Star's Washington correspondent Daniel Dale mused. "There would be an actual fire at Fox News."

"Trump just said 'take the guns first and do due process second'... and the sound you heard was Wayne LaPierre's head exploding," the Boston Globe's Michael Cohen joked, referencing the National Rifle Association's executive vice president who he reportedly had lunch with recently.
