Last week's fatal shooting in Parkland, Florida took 17 people's lives and has catapulted a group of teen survivors into advocating for gun reform.
On Wednesday, Trump hosted a meeting on gun violence with those affected by the shooting. While survivors voiced the need for stricter gun laws, Trump proposed the idea of arming teachers.
After receiving a veritable amount of online backlash, Trump clarified on Thursday that he "never said give teachers guns" but instead considered the "possibility of giving concealed guns to gun adept teachers." Which is still technically giving teachers guns.
