Trump Blasts Gun-Free Zones in Schools

Donald Trump on Monday clarified his position on allowing guns in schools, telling CNN in a phone interview that "school resource officers" or trained teachers should be the ones carrying guns. He stood by his adamant criticism of gun free zones but backed away from his blanket call to eliminate all gun free zones in schools.

Trump is accused of wanting to "mandate that every school in America allow guns in classrooms."
Trump responded Sunday morning on Fox News with a muddled comment that seemed to both reject and reaffirm his support for arming teachers in classrooms. "I don't want to have guns in classrooms, although in some cases teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly," he said.

Trump conceded Monday to CNN that his proposal would introduce guns into schools.
