"That's like, 'Here I am, take me'".

"We are going to go very strongly into age of purchase and we're also going to go very strongly into mental health", Trump said.

"I was lucky enough to come home from school unlike some of my other class and it's very scary knowing that a lot of people did not have this opportunity to be here", Cordover said as she fought back tears in her address to the president.

Student Sam Zeif told how he texted his mother and two brothers during the shooting to say he would not see them again, before realising his 13-year-old sibling was in the classroom above him, where teacher Scott Beigel died shielding students from bullets. They love our Country and will do the right thing.

The president listened to a series of emotional stories and pleas during the 90-minute meeting and asked his guests to suggest solutions to the persistent problem of school shootings in the U.S.

President Donald Trump is reportedly proposing a plan that would award teachers with bonuses if they carried guns with them in class.

But, yeah, they're being politically active. "They hate the NRA". They hate the Second Amendment. However, there have also been a bill put into law the Congress that have make it simpler for gun owners to legally carry concealed weapons across state lines.

He also doubled down on the NRA's longstanding position that armed Americans were the first line of defense in confronting deadly attacks.

The president made his comments as he convened law enforcement, state and local officials at the White House to discuss a range of proposals that could prevent future school shooting massacres.

Mr Trump did not appear to directly use any of the questions or phrases on the card at the meeting, but did thank those who had attended.

Supporters of gun reform, many of them survivors of the shooting, have called for increased gun-control measures.

Meanwhile, down in Florida's Broward County, home to the decimated students, Sheriff Scott Israel announced deputies are now patrolling high schools with AR-15 rifles slung over their shoulders, the same weapon allegedly used by 19-year-old suspect Nikolas Cruz.

The President suggests he could push for age restrictions on weapons to be raised to 21 and repeats calls to end bump stock sales.
