The Latest: On guns, Trump takes different tone about reform

The Latest: On guns, Trump takes different tone about reform”

He left in disgrace after his alleged abuse of two ex-wives surfaced - not one, but two.

But the proposal wasn't part of the plan Sunday, forcing Trump to explain himself on Twitter Monday morning: "On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting". "Responding to the murder of 17 students and educators by endorsing the gun lobby's platform is a shameful abdication of the president's responsibility to lead". Other aspects of his plan are grossly negligent and dangerously ill-informed, particularly arming teachers.

Then just a couple of days later, White House Spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders added conditions that must be met before any meeting took place.

Author Information: Philip Rucker is the White House bureau chief for The Washington Post. While Democrats support Fix NICS, they view it as only a starting point.

Whatever Correa's reason for missing the visit - Trump, Puerto Rico or just having something better to do - the president's power to turn a photo op into a political referendum remains undiminished.

Yet that fearlessness was missing in action Monday when the White House blamed the deadlock of that same system for the paucity of his ambition as it rolled out its response to the Florida high school massacre.

Then Trump began to backpedal.

The lawmaker, who strongly favors increasing the minimum age to buy assault-style weapons, said he thinks Trump "has abandoned his instincts on the issue of gun safety policies", adding that he thinks the proposal is "weak".

At a campaign rally in Pennsylvania Saturday, Trump mocked the idea of a commission to solve problems government should tackle head-on. The orders would allow law enforcement officers, with approval from a court, to remove firearms from those who pose a threat to themselves or others and temporarily to prevent individuals from purchasing new firearms.

She is laying the blame on Capitol Hill, saying there is "not broad-based support" in Congress to push forward the assault weapons change.

In other words, it is reasonable to expect an eventual policy that, in effect, does very little.

It made no mention of expanding the vetting of firearms buyers to sales online and at gun shows, another idea previously floated by the White House.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told Trump that broad gun laws were not going to pass, according to a senior administration official.

One way to do that, the White House said, is to use Justice Department grants to train school personnel to carry weapons "on a voluntary basis".

The plan also proposes to fund firearms training for teachers. "He knows they are an important ally". "Shame on you, Mr. President", Feinstein said in a statement. His team was already drafting legislative proposals that mirrored what eventually came out, this official said. "Diversity - we come from everywhere, all shapes and sizes, all different countries, different backgrounds, high draft picks, low draft picks, non-draft picks".

Not two weeks ago, President Donald Trump wagged his finger at a Republican senator and scolded him for being "afraid of the NRA", declaring that he would stand up to the powerful gun lobby and finally get results on quelling gun violence following last month's Florida school shooting.

Trump's plan does not include an endorsement of a bipartisan measure written by Sens.

"Why did he talk about it so favorably in the public meeting?" The Marjory Stoneman students have won the first round in this fight against the NRA and those who oppose sensible gun laws.

Beckett: There's a lot of questions around that. But that doesn't change the evidence.
