White House to help arm school staff

Despite President Trump repeatedly advocating raising the gun buying age from 18 to 21, the White House instead opted to have a panel explore it as an option rather than make it a key component.

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos testifies during a hearing before the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee on May 24, 2017, in Washington, D.C. Such information could prevent someone from purchasing a gun if discovered during a background check. "If we can get this march to help solidify the sense of urgency to pass gun legislation now, to get it done before they go home for Christmas for Congress, we'd all be a much safer nation". Those are people such as Stephen Miller, a Trump loyalist who even some Republicans in Congress say is too extreme with which to deal.

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.

Trump has said he believes armed teachers would deter school shootings and better protect students when they happen.

"'Mr. President, you need to be clear, though, ' McCarthy said". A person must be 21 to buy a handgun but may buy a long gun at 18 from a licensed dealer under federal law.

"We can't just keep setting up blue-ribbon committees with your wife and your wife and your husband, and they meet and they have a meal and they talk talk talk talk".

Donald Trump, who last month chided fellow Republicans for being "petrified" of the National Rifle Association (NRA), is under growing pressure after seemingly caving in to the powerful gun lobby group's demands. On age limits, he said: "watching court cases and rulings before acting". Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) if the senator had left raising the minimum age for gun purchases out of his bill strengthening background checks because senators "are afraid of the NRA".

Pelosi statement came in response to a gun proposal from the White House, which the lawmaker said "cravenly tiptoes around" the premier United States gun rights group, the National Rifle Association (NRA).

No deadline was set for recommendations from Trump's planned commission, but officials expected them within a year. Just two days earlier, Trump had mocked commissions as something of a dead end while talking about the opioid epidemic.

"I don't know", the president said in February. The White House did not immediately say how much money would be made available.

But NRA leaders have met privately with Trump himself twice in recent weeks, and the president has noticeably tempered his calls for more gun controls in the wake of the Florida shooting.

Where Trump's White House ended up on how to respond to school shootings is a world away from where he started.

Reviews will determine if any changes or clarifications are needed to improve coordination between mental health and other healthcare professionals, school officials, and law enforcement personnel.

In that meeting, Trump insisted upon making that bill's foundation the "very strong" background-check bill written by Sens. Trump wrote in one Twitter message. Arming teachers is an absolutely abhorrent response to school shootings - opposed by law enforcement, students, and educators alike. Funding will be available for training and other kinds of assistance to prevent violence by pin pointing the potential for violent acts in middle and high schools.
