Last week, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, went on a rampage at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida as he gunned down 17 students and injured 14 others.
But it's one particular approach that Trump supported - arming teachers and other adults working at schools with concealed-carry weapons - that is likely to be one of the most controversial responses to yet another school shooting in the U.S.
Teachers who were qualified to handle a weapon Trump estimated between 10 percent and 40 percent would receive "a little bit of a bonus", he said, adding, that he would devote federal money to training them.
The National Rifle Associated on Wednesday quickly rejected any talk of raising the age for buying long guns to 21.
He claims that by arming the teachers who are "adept at handling guns", it would stop all the "maniacs" and "cowards" from attacking schools in the future. Supporters of gun reform, many of them survivors of the shooting, have called for increased gun-control measures.
"I'm hearing more and more people say the level of violence in video games is really shaping young people's thoughts", he said at a meeting on school safety.
"Instead of advertising the school has no guns, we are gun free, do the opposite", he said. She was murdered last week and she was taken from us, shot nine times on the third floor.

Donald Trump has been busted using a cue-card to remind himself to be sympathetic, while meeting parents and victims of the recent Florida school shooting.
Julia Cordover, a senior class president at the school, was one of a number of students who pressed Trump to ensure that "no person in this world will ever have to go through" such a tragedy again.
Melissa Falkowski, a teacher at Stoneman Douglas who hid students in her classroom while the shooting was taking place, called the proposal "ridiculous". Apparently, the president held a handwritten note listing questions and statements that appeared to be meant to remind him to maintain a sympathetic tone during the meeting, including a reminder for the president to let the survivors know that "I hear you".
"If you harden the sites you're not going to have this problem", the president said.
"Because [of] my daughter, I'm not going to see again".
