Those proposals were praised by gun control groups in the wake of the meeting and panned by the National Rifle Association. She described the plan as "pragmatic". But just a second ago we heard DeVos say well a lot of these questions should be hashed out by the states.

"But he can't make them happen with a broad stroke of the pen", she said.

In that meeting with senators and representatives, Trump repeatedly expressed incredulity that an American teenager could buy an assault rifle: "It doesn't make sense that I have to wait until I'm 21 to get a handgun, but I can get this weapon at 18". There was some uncertainty there were in terms of what Secretary DeVos was saying.

President Donald Trump on Monday offered a disappointing plan aimed at reducing gun violence in the nation's schools. Since nearly immediately after the Parkland shooting, the president has advocated arming some teachers as a solution to stopping future massacres.

"Responding to the murder of 17 students and educators by endorsing the gun lobby's platform is a shameful abdication of the president's responsibility to lead", Sen.

Trump ignored their outstretched hand on universal background checks and started talking more about arming teachers. The result was the set of proposals that emerged Sunday, which calls for federal spending to help states train school staff in firearms use; allow military veterans and retired police officers to work as school safety officers; support for a watered-down bill to improve background checks; a call to states to allow judges to approve seizing weapons from people who pose a "red-flag" threat to themselves or others; and a ban on "bump stock" devices that allow semiautomatic weapons to fire almost as rapidly as automatic weapons.
