Trump's school safety plan backs off the age for guns and focuses on arming teachers

Trump abandons age 21 rifle purchase restriction

But the White House is reportedly leaving room for age limits and other issues to be addressed by the Federal Commission on School Safety, a new committee that would take up the issues of age limits, violent entertainment, school safety planning, and access to mental health services, according to CNN.

Student David Hogg, a senior who survived the shooting at Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, hit out at both the NRA and Mr Trump. "Students, businesses, survivors, elected officials, leaders. we invite everyone to participate in our movement, even if you don't agree with everything we say". Cox also said the background check legislation being supported by the White House would go too far, these people said. She described the plan as "pragmatic".

Beckett: There are elements of it that really do have broader backing from gun violence prevention experts. "Americans expecting real leadership to prevent gun violence will be disappointed and troubled by President Trump's risky retreat from his promise", said Avery Gardiner, the group's co-president.

"'Mr. President, you need to be clear, though, ' McCarthy said". In another tweet, he said, "On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting".

President Donald Trump declared not two weeks ago that he would stand up to the National Rifle Association and finally get results on quelling gun violence. Debunking the claims was Fox News host Shepard Smith who did so during a March 12 broadcast.

No deadline was set for the commission's recommendations, but officials expected them within a year. "It was not a legislative strategy session", Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texs, said Monday.

At a campaign rally in Pennsylvania Saturday, Trump mocked the idea of a commission to solve problems government should tackle head-on.

"The President, as you know, doesn't have the ability to just create federal law", Sanders said Monday. What Trump says and does is almost always some synthesis of whatever he thinks will enable him to achieve the end he wants at any given time.

The president's plan would provide for "rigorous" firearms training for some teachers and urges Congress to pass a bill to make the federal background check system more effective. The White House did not immediately say how much money would be made available.

The top Democrats in Congress accused Trump of caving to the NRA and vowed to keep pushing for tougher gun measures.

A full audit and review of the FBI's tip line in light of missed red flags during the recent Parkland, Florida shooting. A similar proposal, which expanded the number of armed officers in schools, was implemented by the Obama administration in the months following the mass shooting in Sandy Hook, Conn.

During the often free-wheeling conversations, Trump also seemed to voice support for "universal" background checks, which would apply to private gun sales and those at gun shows, instead of just from licensed dealers. Referred to as "gun violence restraining orders" and "red-flag laws", law enforcement or immediate families are able to petition for these orders, depending on how the specific state law is written. "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".

"This is a time when any president must lead", she wrote on Twitter.

The commission was announced alongside a raft of more specific policy goals, including providing federal assistance to train teachers to arm themselves, strengthening background checks and reforming the mental health system.
