Trump's Strong Words On Guns Give Way To Political Reality

Trump's Strong Words On Guns Give Way To Political Reality

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Monday that President Donald Trump is continuing to weigh raising the age limit on some firearm purchases from 18 to 21.

"Highly trained expert teachers will be allowed to hide carry, subject to State Law", Trump wrote Monday.

Trump's embrace of another commission appears at odds with comments he made Saturday night mocking their use, at least when it comes to fighting drug addiction. "We can't just keep setting up blue-ribbon committees", he said, adding that all they do is "talk, talk, talk".

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.

That means it's up to the states to take meaningful steps on gun issues.

"It doesn't make sense that I have to wait until I'm 21 to get a handgun but I can get this weapon when I'm 18. I think if they do that, they ought to be able to buy a hunting rifle". "Because you're afraid of the NRA, right?"

"We're very disappointed in the government that we haven't gotten the same benefits", he said in February, per Wallace Matthews of the New York Times.

Too often, America's gun debate moves in circles, arguing whether one policy or another would have prevented the most recent high-profile shooting, rather than which policy would do the most good overall.

As we've mentioned in the past, White House visits, once a routine, low-level ceremonial thing for championship sports teams, have become controversial in the Trump Era.

Now, the Trump administration is focused on two main pieces of legislation: a bill to improve the federal background check database and a measure to shore up safety at schools, including grants to fund violence-prevention training for teachers and students. Back in February he said the NRA will back it. Florida decided to make that move and the NRA is suing the state of Florida. Trump ultimately put forward an immigration proposal to drastically change the legal immigration system that is so conservative most Republicans in Congress won't support it.

The White House's formal release of a school safety agenda is an early step, as the president is also naming a commission to come up with more recommendations.

"We can't just write things down and make them law".

The Minnesota Department of Education said Monday there is no data on how often that exception is used.

The president tweeted that there was not much political support for raising the minimum age on weapons sales.

Trump praised the team for switching into action to help those who had been displaced in the region during the historic flooding from Harvey.

That new panel would not study a broader approach to toughen the instant check system on gun buyers, an idea known as 'universal background checks, ' something the President enthusiastically backed at a meeting with lawmakers a few weeks ago - but then backed away from after a meeting with top NRA officials.
