Before a crowd of conservatives, U.S. President Donald Trump pressed Friday for the arming of many teachers and school security guards, questioning the inaction of an armed officer who failed to stop the gunman who carried out last week's Florida massacre.Turning to this year's elections, Trump told conservative activists at CPAC that Republicans must not be complacent in the fall midterms, warning of terrible consequences if Democrats take control of Congress.Trump's speech at CPAC came at the end of a week that included meetings with students and teachers and state and local officials on ways to bolster school safety and address gun violence.Trump said designating schools as "gun-free zones" puts students in "far more danger".
