Who's afraid of the NRA? Trump

The White House is pushing for federal funding for training and arming voluntary teachers to help protect students at schools.

Rep. Stephanie Murphy said Tuesday she was at the table with President Donald Trump when he held his meeting on school safety and mocked lawmakers for being afraid of the National Rifle Association, and she finds it "disappointing" that his proposals on guns fall "way short" of what was expected.

The Department of Justice announced a series of actions Monday meant to support President Donald Trump's plan to prevent school shootings.

"WE'RE GOING to get things done".

A Republican who speaks with senior White House officials regularly says this is what many aides were looking to avoid.

DeVos characterized the administration's efforts as "a pragmatic plan to dramatically increase school safety".

At one point, Sanders was asked outright by a reporter why Trump "chickened out", but she insisted his ideas in the meeting were still a part of the plan.

"Trump is committed to destroying ISIS, and the global coalition will hunt these terrorists wherever they hide", the statement said.

Trump was moved by the Florida school shooting and convened a series of listening sessions in the weeks after the massacre. "They have less power over me". We've heard many times that he's inevitably persuaded by the last person he talks to, but there, too, "persuaded" isn't the right way to think about it.

"I'm retired", Beltran said last month.

On Friday, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed into law a gun control bill that was passed by the state's legislature.

Administration officials said they had not set a deadline for the commission's recommendations, but expected they'd be made in under a year.

The Justice Department will also provide an unspecified amount of grants to states that want to train teachers to carry guns in school. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., tweeted 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".

Mr Trump has also backed legislation aimed at providing more data for the background check system, a database of people who are not legally allowed to buy guns, but did not endorse a broader proposal to close loopholes by requiring background checks for guns bought at gun shows or over the Internet. And he called for the reform and expansion of mental health programs, as well as a full audit and review of the Federal Bureau of Investigation tip line.

Since the Parkland school shooting, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students such as Hogg, as well as his colleague Emma Gonzalez, have become national gun-control activists. A recent CNN poll found strong support for the idea, including among Republicans.

Both Correa and Beltran are from Puerto Rico, and while Beltran maintained in the past he wasn't skipping the event due to President Trump, he has said he's been disappointed with the White House's response-or lack thereof-to the devastating hurricane that ravaged Puerto Rico in 2017. She said the president wanted to expedite the court process, not circumvent it.

We should note that the administration does continue to support the "Fix NICS" bill, which is not universal background checks but does little more than remind federal and state agencies of their existing reporting obligations under the current background check system. The Stop School Violence Act, another bipartisan proposal shepherded by Sen.
