"The elites don't care not one whit about America's school system and school children", LaPierre told a friendly audience of conservatives outside Washington.

NRATV host Grant Stinchfield dismissed the Twitter calls as an attempt to squash the First and Second Amendment.

In recent days, Trump has endorsed modest gun control measures, including expanded background checks and increasing the age of purchase of semi-automatic weapons to 21 - but he did not expand on these ideas at CPAC, where delegates oppose gun control measures as infringements on Second Amendment gun rights.

A spokesperson for Symantec, which makes the Norton anti-virus software and owns the identity theft protection company LifeLock, said Friday that it has "stopped its discount program" for NRA members. He called the group "Great American Patriots".

"The NRA is so engrained in the American culture now due to their very successful messaging of, "Don't take away my gun" or 'You're infringing on my Second Amendment rights, '" Milano said.

A 78-year-old lobbyist, dubbed the most powerful in her industry when it comes to pro-gun legislation, has been behind much of Florida's gun legislation, or lack thereof, for decades and now faces scrutiny over her influence following last week's deadly shooting at a local high school.

"Not surprised the NRA reeled President Trump back in", Schumer said.

Wayne LaPierre, executive director and CEO of the NRA, on Thursday defended gun rights in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, echoing a call by President Trump to arm some school teachers. "And God help us if we don't harden our schools and protect our kids". It should not be easier for a madman to shoot up a school than a bank or a jewelry store or some Hollywood gala.

LaPierre attacked Democrats by name including Senators Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Christopher Murphy and also took a swipe at the Federal Bureau of Investigation for failing to follow up on a tip about the alleged shooter in the Parkland massacre.

Hammer said the NRA "conceptually" supports the idea of restricting gun access to the mentally ill but could not comment on the specific proposals by the governor and legislators because they had not yet released the language and "this is very tricky stuff". That has drawn a mixed reaction in a country fiercely divided over how to curb mass shootings and everyday gun violence.

President Donald Trump takes a question from reporters before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Friday, Feb. 23, 2018, to travel to Oxon Hill, Md.to speak at the Conservative Political Ac. "Carry Guard is a danger to the American public, pure and simple".

LaPierre criticized "Democratic socialists" for promoting the need for more stringent gun control laws and warned the country would be adversely affected if they gained representation in state legislatures and in Congress.

"You give them a little bonus", the president said during a meeting on school safety on Thursday.

Speaking as he left the White House to attend the conference, he said the officer was either a "coward" or "didn't react properly under pressure" after it emerged Mr Peterson never went inside to engage the gunman as the shooting took place. You're trying to scare people into buying more guns because it brings in more money.

"ATTACKS WOULD END", Mr. Trump said. "And notice I said "crying white mothers" because there are thousands of grieving black mothers in Chicago every weekend, and you don't see town halls for them, do you?"

"What they want is more restrictions on the law-abiding".

Mr LaPierre lambasted the Federal Bureau of Investigation for failing to follow up on a tip about the former student suspected of carrying out the attack. In an email to the Guardian, the chain said it ended its relationship "late last year".
