Even by Donald Trump's standards, it was a little stupid.
The man who has invented whole new African countries, joked about groping women and boasted about having "the best words" struck a new low by proposing that school teachers be given guns.

Naturally this idea has received a significant dollop of scepticism since the Prez propounded it. But it's far from the only idea espoused in the wake of the massacre in Florida.

Take a look at the ideas in the gallery above
