Trump Won't Support Raising Minimum Gun Age To 21

"They have great power over you people", Trump said on February 28, referring to the NRA while addressing a group of lawmakers at the White House.

Despite all that divides us, liberals and conservatives have come to agree that what comes out of Trump's mouth on matters of policy is all but meaningless.

"While state and local partners have primary responsibility for the physical security at schools, through trainings, best practices guides, workshops, and tabletop exercises, we hope to improve awareness and foster a culture of preparedness", Nielsen continued. A commission on school violence - led by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who has been a major disappointment - will likely accomplish nothing of outcome.

The most recent HuffPost/YouGov poll, which set up a similar experiment, found that Republicans' opinions of several of the policies Trump espoused stayed about the same, whether the poll mentioned his name or not. That commission may recommend raising the federal minimum age to 21.

Trump's about-face on raising the minimum age to purchase long guns to 21 came after Florida Gov. Rick Scott's decision to sign a sweeping gun bill into law was met almost immediately by the National Rifle Association which filed a lawsuit to stop it. And yet the White House is coming forward and saying for school shootings this is the path we want to take. There's a short waiting period to buy a gun. Because for example with the age limit question as you've reported the president, he's not taking on that issue head on anymore but instead assigning that to a new federal commission on school safety chaired by Secretary DeVos.

Trump Sunday unveiled long-awaited policy plans supposedly created to combat the plague of mass shootings in American schools.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday is expected to debate a bill that would invest $50 million a year to help education and law enforcement officials reduce the chances of gun violence at schools. And deadly gun massacres are hardly limited to schools, as the people in Las Vegas, Orlando, Charleston and other communities know. Those are people such as Stephen Miller, a Trump loyalist who even some Republicans in Congress say is too extreme with which to deal.

And in that meeting, Trump demanded aggressive tools to repossess the guns of those who might be unsafe: "Take the guns first, go through due process second".

The Washington Post estimated it would cost a billion dollars to arm and train 20 percent of American teachers.

The White House said that by suspending the security assistance to Pakistan, Trump has sent a "long overdue" message to the recipients of American foreign aid that the administration expects them to fully join the United States in combating terrorism.

While some gun control advocates welcomed the move, others argued that it would still be better for Congress to pass legislation banning the devices. Dianne Feinstein, Calif., and other Democrats who have long sought to toughen gun laws and ban semiautomatic assault rifles.

"Good (Great) meeting in the Oval Office tonight with the NRA!"

Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Monday that the president had not abandoned the idea of raising the gun-buying age but that the plan released Sunday reflects what the executive branch can achieve now.
