"I will get rid of gun-free zones on schools, and — you have to — and on military bases. My first day, it gets signed, okay? My first day. There's no more gun-free zones."
- Donald Trump speech, Burlington, VT, January 2016
"The problem with gun free zones is it's like offering up candy to bad people. They hear gun free zones and they go in there with their guns blazing."
- Trump interview with CNN, May 2016
Trump reaffirmed his commitment to eliminating gun-free zones in May 2016, but clarified his position on guns in schools, saying "I don't want to have guns in classrooms, although in some cases teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly,"
As of 21 January, 2017, after a full 24 hours in office, this promise had not been addressed. Though it is not clear how exactly the President could implement such a ban, aside from his continued rhetoric against Gun Free Zones he took no further action to achieve this promise.
