Trump willing to discuss gun controls

President Donald Trump has directed his attorney general to propose changes that ban "bump stocks".

Washington state Governor Jay Inslee called for a state ban on the attachments after the Las Vegas massacre.

Earlier Tuesday, Trump also said he had advised Attorney General Jeff Sessions to propose regulations that would ban bump fire stocks.

President Trump is quietly considering imposing federal age restrictions on the purchase of weapons like the AR-15, which was used in the Parkland, Florida, school shooting last week, Axios reports.

The planned clampdown would target rapid-fire bump stocks similar to those used in the Las Vegas massacre previous year.

Trump said "We have to do more to protect our children".

"The Department understands this is a priority for the President and has acted quickly to move through the rulemaking process", said Flores.

NBA All-Star Weekend 2018: Ranking every player in the Rising Stars Challenge
On Saturday there will be the Slam Dunk and three point contests while Sunday is the big finale with the actual NBA All Star game. Migos fans took to Twitter immediately, posting up some hilarious commentary to celebrate Quavo's basketball accomplishments.

"Sign after sign this week that we've hit a fulcrum point in this debate where politicians are, for the first time, scared on the political consequences of inaction on guns", Mr Murphy wrote on Twitter. Such devices were used during the deadly Las Vegas shooting in October a year ago.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer signaled Democrats will renew a fight to expand background checks for gun purchasers following last week's mass shooting that killed 17 people at a Florida high school.

Trump said the point of these meetings is to "develop concrete steps that we can take to secure our schools, safeguard our students and protect our communities".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday that the issue is "certainly something that's on the table for us to discuss".

"I expect these regulations to be finalized very soon", he said. Critics saw that announcement as a strategic ploy to divert attention from stricter gun control proposals. Bump stocks are widely available for sale because the ATF deemed the bump stock to be a part or accessory that is not subject to regulation by the ATF.

New Jersey, a state with tougher gun laws, banned bump stocks last month.

The motion was defeated by a vote of 36-71 as students who survived the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School watched on in disbelief.
