He even called for a rating system to be created, seeming to ignore the ESRB rating system for video games and MPAA ratings for movies.

Following President Trump's critical remarks about the Broward County police officers at the Parkland school shooting, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked whether Mr. Trump thought Sheriff Scott Israel and officer Scot Peterson should be fired.

Details on specific timing and attendance for the meeting weren't immediately available, but Sanders cast the meeting as of a piece with multiple others that have already taken place between the president and "a number of stakeholders" in the gun violence debate.

Instagram's code reveals potential voice and video calling features
If Instagram does decide to add audio and video calling to its app, it could become a far more appealing chat app than Snapchat. If Instagram rolls out the voice and video calling support, then it would make the platform a better alternative to Snapchat.

"This is going to be an ongoing process and something that we don't expect to happen overnight but something that we're going to continue being engaged in and continue to look for the best ways possible to make sure that we're doing everything we can to protect schools across the country", Sanders said.

Trump last week verbally embraced a handful of measures, including appearing to support raising the age limit from 18 for some gun purchases - but sources close to the discussions between the White House and Congress on gun control said it appears that the President is changing his position. For example, in the aftermath of the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting, he tweeted: "Video game violence & glorification must be stopped-it is creating monsters!" We'll see if President Trump feels it is prudent to continue his seeming crusade against video games after the meeting next week. At issue was a California law that attempted to restrict the sale of violence video games to minors. Numerous authorities have examined the scientific record and found there is no link between media content and real-life violence. The Entertainment Software Association, gaming's biggest lobbying group, says that it had no knowledge of a meeting next week. "I think the point he was making is that he would have wanted to have played a role in that as well".
