Trump Backtracks Again, Doesn't Set Age for Guns, Defers on Arming Teachers

Students from the high school have taken the lead in a national campaign to advance gun control, meeting Trump and other leading politicians, and helping force through a new law on age limits for purchasers in Florida.

The President addressed the issue on Twitter Monday morning. As I just said, they're still outlined in the plan, but he can't make them happen with a broad stroke of the pen. "The team pulled together very well, they came back from the storm, they put "Houston Strong" on their shirts, and came back and started helping right away".

The Justice Department did announce a concrete move Saturday - a plan to ban bump stocks. "Highly trained expert teachers will be allowed to hide carry, subject to State Law", he tweeted. He has called for raising the minimum age for purchasing an AR-15 or similar-style rifles from 18 to 21 years old. The NRA opposes the measure. States are making this decision. "Things are moving rapidly on this, but not much political support (to put it mildly)".

Arming teachers and fixing the background check system are both policies supported by the NRA. NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre touted arming teachers in a speech last month to the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, who offered her support as Trump expressed his backing for gun control a fortnight ago, said the president had "completely caved to the gun lobby".

First of all describe to us what specifically is in the president's school safety plan. If Altuve was in full IDGAF mode, he should've fired back with a remark about how Navy Rear Adm. Ronny L. Jackson straight-up lied when he said Trump is listed at 6-foot-3 and 239 pounds. But I'm saying it anyway.

A CNN poll released late last month found 71% of Americans polled supported preventing people under age 21 from buying any type of gun. And yet these other weapons that we talk about. they're allowed to buy them at 18. "We really need to focus on prevention, and I identifying risks early on, and that starts by addressing social and emotional well being and increasing access and consistency and transparency to mental health services", said DeVos.

Trump said on Sunday that he would work to raise the age limit and will establish a Federal Commission on School Safety, to be chaired by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, that will explore possible solutions regarding the age requirement for gun purchases. The NRA on Friday sued Florida over a new gun law signed by Republican Gov. Rick Scott that bans the purchase of firearms by anyone under the age of 21. But it does not contain universal background checks, which would be far more effective.

Murphy, a co-sponsor of Fix NICs, has said he has worked for weeks with Cornyn to try to find a time agreement, but that one has proved elusive.

At a February 21 meeting with Parkland survivors at the White House, he explained, "They go for special training and they would be there and you would no longer have a gun-free zone". It may consider the age young people can purchase guns, the Washington Post reported Sunday. But the action at the White House is taking is creating a federal commission to talk about this stuff more and punting a lot of the most controversial issues including age limits to this commission, which is of course the opposite of taking action - it is in fact just engaging in more talk.

Trump's administration will step up aid to states that want to arm school employees under a plan to increase campus safety.
