Trump Won't Support Raising Minimum Gun Age To 21

The Real Trade War Is Inside Donald Trump's White House Google Images labeled for reuse

Democrats asked questions that mentioned Trump's name were less likely to favor proposals attached to him than those who didn't see him mentioned. Invoking past mass school shootings, she continued, "No student, no family, no teacher and no school should have to live the horror of Parkland or Sandy Hook or Columbine again".

President Trump seemed to retreat from his call to increase the age to buy assault-style rifles from 18 to 21, a point he had made repeatedly in recent weeks.

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.

The World Series-winning Astros visited the White House on Monday - well, most of them.

We saw a similar unraveling of compromise play out in a January immigration debate.

It comes after the White House announced it is setting up a commission to deal with gun violence.

White House spokesman Raj Shah had said earlier Sunday in an interview with ABC's "This Week" that "the president has been clear that he does support raising the age to 21" and that that would be a "component" of the announcement. "If we want to prevent future atrocities, we must look for solutions that keep guns out of the hands of those who are a danger to themselves or others, while protecting the rights of law-abiding Americans", said Chris W. Cox, executive director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action. "Many of us pleasantly". "I think if they do that, they ought to be able to buy a hunting rifle".

During the often free-wheeling conversations, Trump also seemed to voice support for "universal" background checks, which would apply to private gun sales and those at gun shows, instead of just from licensed dealers.

Trump's new proposal for offer funding for teachers so they could carry guns in classrooms, with the stated intention of taking on mass shooters.

The White House insisted that Trump remained committed to more significant changes even if they are delayed. Trump ultimately put forward an immigration proposal to drastically change the legal immigration system that is so conservative most Republicans in Congress won't support it.

The findings also hint at a stark difference between gun polling today and polling during the Obama administration: Republicans are no longer especially afraid that the president will take their guns.

"His remarks at this meeting were intensely revealing precisely because they showed once again that Trump is nearly wholly devoid of core beliefs", she wrote in the National Review. House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., had to interject to correct the president that's actually the opposite of what Trump wants to do. Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey, the men he maligned for supposedly being cowed by the gun lobby: "I'd rather have you come up with a strong, strong bill". What Trump says and does is almost always some synthesis of whatever he thinks will enable him to achieve the end he wants at any given time. "He's been an outlier for years", Sen.

For his part, Trump lauded the Astros for their charity work and spirit in helping the Houston area recover from Hurricane Harvey, which wrought its own path of destruction throughout the southern part of the U.S.

Opting for a plan the administration officials described as "pragmatic", Trump backs legislation proposed in Congress aimed at providing more data for the background check system - a database of people who are not legally allowed to buy guns.
