When the cameras were invited to a White House meeting with Trump and bipartisan lawmakers a few weeks ago, Trump seemed so open to gun-control proposals that he accused one of the most pro gun-control Republicans in the Senate, Patrick J. Toomey, of being afraid of the NRA because Toomey's universal background check bill from 2013 also didn't raise the age limit for buying assault rifles. This follows reports that calls came into the Federal Bureau of Investigation tip line warning about 19-year-old former student Nikolas Cruz, prior to his shooting and killing 17 people last month at a high school in Parkland, Florida. The president and his fellow Republicans in Congress strongly support Americans' constitutional right to own guns.

Ivanka Trump keeps a framed copy of her father's speech recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in her White House office, alongside the handwritten lyrics to the rock classic "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey.

Scott said the Florida legislation - though already in the crosshairs of the NRA - shows Florida, unlike the federal government, can move quickly and "get things done".

Secretary DeVos' most notable statement on the issue to date was when she was asked in her confirmation hearing about allowing guns in schools and responded that in some places you might need them "to protect from potential grizzlies". And deadly gun massacres are hardly limited to schools, as the people in Las Vegas, Orlando, Charleston and other communities know. At the same time, the NRA told its members that they were under threat from liberals, the media and those who make it harder to buy guns - a common victimhood tactic following these types of headlines.

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.

At a political rally Saturday night in Pennsylvania, Trump mocked the idea of commissions to solve the nation's drug epidemic.

The White House said Trump has taken aggressive action to confront Iran's "threatening behaviour", including imposing sanctions on dozens of Iran-linked entities and refusing to re-certify the Iran deal.

'This Is Us' Fans React to Old Jack Pearson
Though " This Is Us " always makes people emotional, teenage Kate actress Hannah Zeile warned that it would be a hopeful finale. So before we toast Toby and Kate, before we clink our glasses, I think that the four of us should release that breath together.

At the same meeting February 28 with lawmakers where he discussed raising the gun-buying age, Trump alarmed gun rights activists by suggesting he would confiscate guns from people who posed threats, then "go through due process". We're also frustrated - yet hardly surprised - that the president has broken his promise to seek an increase in the minimum age to purchase some weapons. The problem, this Republican says, is that Trump rushed into the debate with gut instincts but little grasp of gun policy.

The NRA supports the idea of allowing armed teachers in schools.

But NRA leaders then met privately with Trump and the president had an apparent change of heart and backed off more restrictive proposals.

Sessions directed federal agencies to verify within 45 days that they are in full compliance or plan to become compliant with an existing law requiring agencies to report relevant records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

Meanwhile, the Justice Department is reviewing whether it can ban bump stocks through the regulatory process.

"You just can't decide you want laws to pass and it happens", Sanders said.
