Whether it's playing Jules Winfield in Pulp Fiction or Nick Fury in The Avengers, Samuel L Jackson has shot his fair share of fictional firearms.

But he was aghast to hear President Donald Trump's proposals to arm "adept" teachers with guns in the order to prevent further shootings like the one seen in Parkland, Florida.

The 69-year-old actor took to Twitter to voice his concern and did so in a typical Samuel L Jackson manner i.e there is a lot of swearing.

That being said he did express a sentiment that has been shared by many people across America.

His tweet soon went viral and it provoked some interesting and passionate responses.

Jackson isn't the only person to speak out against Trump's suggestions.

Former combat expert Brandon Friedman penned a powerful open letter explaining why such a plan wouldn't prevent more massacres.

Trump reportedly made the suggestion to arm teachers during a session at the White House with parents and students affected by the Parkland shooting.

He has since tried to clarify that he only intended the idea for "gun adept teacher with military or special training experience - only the best."

This isn't the first time that Trump and Jackson have interacted on Twitter. In January 2016, the President tagged the actor in a critical tweet after the star claimed to have met him.

That tweet backfired on Trump after Jackson was able to prove that the two had met during a golf game when he appeared on the chat show Late Night with Seth Myers.
