When she was challenged on the fact that a majority of the public supports Trump's proposal on raising age requirements, Sanders sniffed at opinion surveys and metaphorically threw up her hands. He chided Sen. Patrick J. Toomey, R-Pa., who helped write that background check legislation, accusing him of rejecting the higher age limit "because you're afraid of the NRA". "A groundswell of grassroots energy - led by students - must move Congress to take meaningful action in the absence of presidential leadership". Still, to see the White House's spin so forcefully rejected on the president's favorite network is to appreciate just how weak it is.
The White House is also calling on Congress to two pieces of legislation. A White House official said Trump still wanted stronger background checks but recognized the risks of alienating his supporters.
The administration also plans to support the transition of military veterans and retired law enforcement into new careers in education and will encourage state attorneys general to audit school districts for compliance with state emergency preparedness activities. Dianne Feinstein, Calif., and other Democrats who have long sought to toughen gun laws and ban semiautomatic assault rifles.
"A$3 couple of the guys had family issues and spring break, so we didn't really review that with them", Astros owner Jim Crane told reporters afterward, effectively dodging the issue.
Another senior administration official said that Trump "does things on the fly" in sessions like the one on guns and that they aren't real promises or formal positions.
"This is a tradition and an honor". A reporter in the room cited various polls that put a high percentage of Americans wanting that age change. Politicians often have a tenuous relationship with the truth; that is why I am so cynical generally. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said in an interview Monday.
Veteran Washington lawyer Emmet Flood is under consideration for a White House job assisting U.S. President Donald Trump with the Russia probe, according to a person familiar with the matter. He has called for raising the minimum age for purchasing an AR-15 or similar-style rifles from 18 to 21 years old. The idea of arming some teachers has been controversial and has drawn sharp opposition from the National Education Association, the country's largest teachers lobby, among other groups. He tweeted there's "not much political support" on the age issue. "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun", the NRA mantra has gone. With more than 60 co-sponsors in the 100-member chamber, individual senators would have a hard time slowing or blocking its passage if it were brought up for debate.
However, there are storm clouds on the horizon.
Then just a couple of days later, White House Spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders added conditions that must be met before any meeting took place. Fox News host Laura Ingraham said Cohn disagrees with many of Trump's conservative-populist policies.
The commission was announced a day after Trump, in a Pennsylvania campaign rally, ridiculed similar panels that "meet and they have a meal and they talk ..."
"It really to me is simple", Cornyn said. Manchin asked of Trump and his bill. That's what usually happens. There was some uncertainty there were in terms of what Secretary DeVos was saying.
But even Fix NICS is stuck. He had predicted it would end by Christmas and then by Jan. 1.
If Flood joins the Trump team, then he would be changing his mind about representing Trump.
School safety measures, meanwhile, are moving forward.
