Donald Trump's strong words on guns give way to political reality

White House insists Trump not 'chickening out' on NRA

More contentious proposals, such as raising the minimum age for buying guns to 21 from 18, or requiring background checks for guns bought at gun shows or on the internet, will be studied by a commission headed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, the officials said.

"Highly trained expert teachers will be allowed to hide carry, subject to State Law", Trump wrote Monday. "Armed guards OK, deterrent!", he wrote.

As for age requirement, Trump said he will be "watching court cases and rulings before acting".

-Training will be state based and local school district officials will make decisions about where staff can obtain proper training for carrying firearms inside schools.

Olorunnipa said that "certain things" Trump supports do not have similarly widespread approval in Congress, so he only moves forward with what he can get done.

When the press conference cut out and live news coverage from Fox resumed, Shepard Smith was ready to have his say about Trump's take on this. The objective of the group he is forming, he told TIME in an interview Monday, is to ensure that Congress passes a gun control package by the end of the year - that both contains and builds on provisions in the bill Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed into law last week - while maintaining support for the Second Amendment.

Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., tweeting that Trump "couldn't even summon the political courage to propose raising the age limit on firearm purchases - despite repeated promises to support such a step at a meeting with lawmakers".

Within a week of the televised meeting, the president and National Rifle Association announced they had held a private meeting in the Oval Office. Arming teachers is an absolutely abhorrent response to school shootings - opposed by law enforcement, students, and educators alike.

Sunday's announcement also included continued support for arming teachers and other school personnel on a volunteer basis, another controversial stance supported by the NRA.

3 killed, 14 hurt in blasts in Boisar chemical factories
Scared and shaken many mistook it for an quake and hundreds rushed out on to the streets and sat there for hours. Loyal eyewitnesses said that the explosion sounded like a bomb when they were preparing to retire for the night.

"It totally eviscerates the right of law-abiding adults between the ages of 18 and 21 to keep and bear arms", the NRA said. The measure is created to provide grants so state governments could improve school security, active shooter training, and implement related technology.

The proposals support the Cornyn-Murphy bill to improve background checks and expands mental health programs.

During a meeting with lawmakers, Trump advocated the bipartisan FixNICS measure, introduced by Sens.

-President Trump supports the Stop School Violence Act, which puts increased emphasize on the importance of localized threat assessment.

Trump's plan does not include an endorsement of a bipartisan measure written by Sens.

Critics accused Trump of wilting after three of the worst mass shootings in United States history scarred his first year in office, saying the measures fall far short of what is needed.

The administration's proposal would implement or call for the implementation of a number of immediate reforms meant to address school safety and reduce gun violence. "We can take action and prevent violence and protect the Second Amendment rights of law abiding Americans at the same time", he added.

The massacre spurred officials in Washington to re-evaluate gun laws.

Avery Gardiner, co-president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said: "Americans expecting real leadership to prevent gun violence will be disappointed and troubled by President Trump's unsafe retreat from his promise". In the interview, she appeared to know little about the department she was appointed to head and last week was criticized by shooting victims for an apparent indifference toward them. So there is a lot of public support.
