Ivanka Trump ‘Doesn’t Know’ If Teachers Should Be Armed


Ivanka Trump passed up an opportunity to back her father’s suggestion that some teachers should be armed in the wake of the Florida school shooting.

Speaking to NBC News during her trip to the Winter Olympics in South Korea, the president’s daughter/senior adviser made clear her discomfort with her dad’s suggestion that specially trained teachers should carry guns in schools.

Asked if she backed the idea of having armed teachers in her own children’s school, Ivanka said: “To be honest, I don’t know. Obviously, there would have to be an incredibly high standard for who would be able to bear arms in our school. But I think there is no one solution for creating safety.” Asked further if she was advising her father on the idea, she said: “I think that having a teacher who is armed who cares deeply about her students or his students and who is capable and qualified to bear arms is not a bad idea, but it is an idea that needs to be discussed.” Read more at NBC NEWS.




  1. The Deep State can hire a rogue teacher to do the shooting.
    However, non-Democrat teachers should be armed.

    Will an armed teacher have the courage to shoot shooters dressed in full SWAT gear, helmet, bulletproof vest the entire SWAT outfits, as was the case in the Florida high school?

  2. have you looked at some of the high school students? many of them are bigger than the teachers. a gang of wild teenagers could quickly overwhelm a teacher and grab his gun. and if teachers are armed, do they run the risk of being fired for trying to get away from some crazy person? guns do not belong in schools. school systems are responsible to help students with mental challenges or social problems, students who have grown up in terrible circumstances.such kids need psychologists and social workers; they do not need to be thrown out into the street

  3. This is very terrible.

    Help must come. We are not prepared for epidemic violence and no school child can be in any state of learning when he is checking all his classmates and afraid in the classroom. It might indeed be a time to arm some teachers.

    On the other hand, can the teacher even concentrate on his class with the increased responsibility of gun carry need? There is only so much time in his or her day. Why spend more of it on reactive defensive countermeasures? This might just be intelligent to hire more school guards. They can do the job.
