If you're a gun-lover, former President Donald Trump just made you happy.
If you're a teacher who's also a gun-lover, Donald Trump just made you VERY happy.
During Trump's speech at the NRA's Annual Meeting 2023, he pledged a tax credit for teachers who take the time to be trained in firearm proficiency for classroom defense.
According to excerpts of prepared remarks given to Breitbart by Trump's team, Trump told attendees at the NRA annual meeting leadership forum, "I will create a new tax credit to reimburse any teacher for the full cost of a concealed-carry firearm and training from highly qualified experts." He continued:
If even 5% of teachers were voluntarily armed and trained to stop active shooters, we would achieve effective deterrence and the problem would cease to exist.
"I will ask Congress to send a bill to my desk delivering National Concealed Carry Reciprocity. Just like your driver’s license and marriage license, your Second Amendment must apply across state lines," he added.
