Florida senator Marco Rubio was also dismissive of the idea of arming teachers.

Those moves fell close in line with the position of the National Rifle Association, the powerful gun lobby that fights any gun ownership restrictions. She described the plan as "pragmatic". Earlier this month, the USA said the move would take place to coincide with Israel's 70th birthday. A similar proposal, which expanded the number of armed officers in schools, was implemented by the Obama administration in the months following the mass shooting in Sandy Hook, Conn.

Trump has been ricocheting on the guns-in-schools issues ever since a February 14 shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., took 17 lives.

"On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting", he wrote. There was some uncertainty there were in terms of what Secretary DeVos was saying.

Trump's step backwards, after two extraordinary meetings in recent weeks with NRA executives, has critics accusing him of wilting after three of the worst mass shootings in United States history scarred his first year in office. "You can buy a handgun - you can't buy one; you have to wait until you're 21".

Other polling on gun control after the shooting in Parkland, Florida, found that while the rise in support for stricter gun laws wasn't confined to Republicans, it included them. "He talked a really big game about what he would be supportive of, so it's disappointing to see the proposal that he put forward falls way short of what parents in my community are expecting us to do".

The gun-rights organization has already sued Florida after Governor Rick Scott signed legislation raising the minimum age to 21.

At a campaign rally in Pennsylvania Saturday, Trump mocked the idea of a commission to solve problems government should tackle head-on.

"You why know?" Trump said to Toomey.

Administration officials demurred Sunday night when asked why Trump found commissions an inadequate response to the drug epidemic but an appropriate way to respond to gun massacres.

"Let's not forget that the Obama administration had the White House and all of Congress for two years and didn't do anything", she said. Earlier on Monday, as reported by the Inquisitr, Trump used Twitter to repeat key points of his gun-control plan, announced in the wake of the Parkland shooting, which left 17 people dead. Since nearly immediately after the Parkland shooting, the president has advocated arming some teachers as a solution to stopping future massacres. "We are committed to working quickly because there's no time to waste", said DeVos, who will chair a federal commission on school safety.

As part of the plan, the White House has directed the Justice Department to help states partner with local law enforcement to provide "rigorous firearms training to specifically qualified volunteer school personnel", said Andrew Bremberg, director of the president's Domestic Policy Council.

Trump is backing a bipartisan Senate bill by Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Sen.

Instead, the White House reiterated its support for improvements to the National Instant Criminal Background Check through the "Fix NICS" bill, which would penalize federal agencies that don't properly report required records and reward states that comply by providing them with federal grant preferences.

"You just can't decide you want laws to pass and it happens", Sanders said. Democrats in the control group were apparently less on the defensive about their former president's record ― 42 percent said Obama had done too little, and just 36 percent that he'd done the right amount.
