Trump backs off call for raising minimum age to buy assault weapons

Trump Wants to Hire Clinton's Impeachment Lawyer for Help Facing Mueller Probe, Report Says

Instead, a new federal commission on school safety will examine the age issue, as well as a long list of others topics, as part of a longer-term look at school safety and violence.

The president says Saccone's Democratic opponent - Marine Corps veteran Conor Lamb - "will always vote for Pelosi and Dems".

He told investigators he had used an AR-15 assault rifle, which he had bought legally, to fire into classrooms during the attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on 14 February.

There was, however, no proposed timeline for the commission. "As the champions in Major League Baseball, we'll represent baseball well, we try to represent the country well, and to celebrate this in front of the whole country is truly an honor", A.J. said.

From the parts of the plan that you're describing that are there and those that are not, it sounds like an NRA-approved school safety plan.

Many of America's gun control policies are created to prevent horrific mass shootings, rather than the everyday gun violence that claims the majority of lives.

Sen. Bob Casey, Democrat of Pennsylvania, called the plan "weak on security and an insult to the victims of gun violence". "Shame on you, Mr. President", Feinstein said in a statement.

The plan is less ambitious than the changes Trump advocated in a series of listening sessions in the weeks after the massacre.

Students from the 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. "It doesn't make sense that I have to wait until I'm 21 to get a handgun, but I can get this weapon at 18".

Beckett: So the plan that was released last night and discussed by White House officials does include moving forward on a plan to provide some federal support for giving teachers and other school staff firearms training.

Sanders also explained a tweet the president sent earlier on Monday in which he claimed that there was little political support for raising the age to buy an assault weapon, despite multiple polls showing well over 70% of Americans would favor such a proposal.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill last week that increased the age limit to 21 to buy firearms in the state, and the NRA quickly sued.

Rather than push for a sweeping federal law, Trump wants state and local officials to set the age limits.

Trump has said he was personally moved by the shooting - and by the persistent and impassioned calls for action from some of the teenage survivors as well as parents of the victims - and elevated the issue of school safety in his administration. "I think if they do that, they ought to be able to buy a hunting rifle".

The National Rifle Association supports both arming teachers and fixing the background check system.

"It will be cool to see some of the guys that were with the team previous year that aren't with us anymore", Harris said. Trump will back two modest pieces of legislation, and the administration pledged to help states pay for firearms training for teachers.

Trump will call on state governments to allow law enforcement officials to obtain court orders to temporarily seize guns from people reported to be risky, officials said.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told Trump that broad gun laws were not going to pass, according to a senior administration official.
