President Donald Trump on Friday trashed the idea of keeping guns out of schools during CPAC 2018 — where attendees are barred from bringing in their guns.
During a section of his talk about the massacre in Parkland, Florida last week, the president said that having gun-free zones made students less safe and reiterated his calls for some teachers to be armed with guns in classrooms.
“If this guy thought that other people would be shooting bullets back at him, he wouldn’t have gone to that school,” Trump said of Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz. “He wouldn’t have gone there. It’s a gun free zone. It says this the gun free zone.”
Despite the president’s attacks on gun-free zones, people attending CPAC are not allowed to bring guns with them into the conference.
Trump also called on creating a culture of mutual respect in which violence is discouraged. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump called on his supporters to “knock the crap” out of protesters at his rallies and even vowed to pay their legal fees.

Fox legal analyst: Ukraine scandal is ‘far more serious’ than what Mueller dug up on Trump
Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Monday told Fox Business host David Asman that President Donald Trump's now-infamous phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is a serious case of corruption that cannot be ignored.
Although Asman tried to make the story about the actions of former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Napolitano said that what Trump has done appears far worse than anything the former vice president did.
"This is the most serious charge against the president, far more serious than what Bob Mueller dug or dragged up against him," Napolitano said. "If there was a quid pro quo -- it does appear as though a quarter of a billion dollars in defensive weaponry was held back for a period of time while these... conversations were going on between the presidents."
Trump goes off script at UN religious freedom event to praise evangelical bigot Franklin Graham
President Donald Trump on Monday praised evangelical preacher Franklin Graham, who is known for his views against Muslims and LGBT people, at a UN event for religious freedom.
While speaking at the international gathering, the U.S. president went off script with his acknowledgement of Graham.
"I also want to thank Franklin Graham because he has been so instrumental in everything we are doing, such an incredible job in so many ways," Trump said. "Floods and hurricanes and every time I go I see him and he’s always there before me."
"I’m going to beat him one day but he is always at these places of really disaster areas. He is right there, incredible large staff of volunteers that are just amazing," he added. "Thank you very much."
