Rush Limbaugh calls for concealed carry in schools after Florida shooting

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh called Sunday for concealed carrying of handguns in schools in order to combat mass shooters like the one that took place last week in Florida.

“If we are really serious of protecting the kids, we need a mechanism to be defensive,” Mr. Limbaugh said on “Fox News Sunday.”

He dismissed efforts by students who survived the Florida shooting to advocate for gun control by organizing marches in cities cross the country next month.

“I have to ask if anybody is really serious about solving this because none of this… is going to solve this. Prayers and condolences don’t solve it and marches aren’t going to solve it,” Mr. Limbaugh said.

His comments come after Cameron Kasky, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, announced the marches will take place March 24.
