The Astros visited President Trump at the White House

The Latest: Trump eyes court cases, rulings on age limits

Trump doesn't set age for guns, defers on arming teachers

Sanders declined to say whether Trump supported the Manchin-Toomey bill that would close background check loopholes involving online and private sales, saying only the White House will "consider other options beyond" the proposals it is already backing.

Trump has mocked such commissions as something of a dead end. Beltran, who is now retired, had said in February when he announced that he would not attend the White House reception as a protest that there was no doubt that he was disappointed in the administration, adding that he was not the only one feeling that way.

"On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting".

-Training will be state based and local school district officials will make decisions about where staff can obtain proper training for carrying firearms inside schools. "Things are moving rapidly on this, but not much political support (to put it mildly)", Trump tweeted.

"The president, during his campaign, said nobody knows the system better than me which is why I alone can fix it", Olorunnipa said. "Armed guards okay, deterrent!"

About an hour later he returned to the social media site and the weapons debate, warning that if schools are made gun-free zones, "violence" will follow.

On this issue, a commission's okay?

Pressed repeatedly on NBC Monday about why the White House backed off Trump's support for increasing the minimum age for purchasing assault-style weapons, DeVos said that "everything is on the table", stressing that the commission will study a wide range of issues.

So help me understand a little bit more, because there seems to be some confusion about what the Trump administration's stance is on whether certain issues around gun safety in schools should be dealt with at the state level or at the federal level.

Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, a teacher's union, called Trump's plan to arm teachers "antithetical to the needs of children and ignores the purposes of public education". "And I want to thank every member of the Astros team who spent time with those displaced in shelters".

Some gun control advocates worry that the regulation will face legal challenges, and have urged Congress to pass a law instead.

"'Mr. President, you need to be clear, though, ' McCarthy said".

American federal law states that you must be 18 years old in order to buy a rifle or shotgun from a licensed dealer, and 21 years old to purchase a handgun.

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.

President Donald Trump declared not two weeks ago that he would stand up to the National Rifle Association and finally get results on quelling gun violence.

The Department of Justice would help schools to partner the state and local law enforcement authorities to provide "rigorous firearm training to qualified personnel" on a voluntary basis, said an official, as part of efforts to "harden" USA schools.

Other proposals include additional funding for the nation's faltering mental health infrastructure, and a full review of the FBI's tip line. Without mentioning Trump or his plan, the NRA stumped for solutions that mirror details listed in it nearly verbatim and also threw support behind "risk protection orders" to strip away guns from individuals who threaten violence or pose a danger to themselves or others.
