Why Donald Trump Blinked on Guns

Rather, the president is establishing a Federal Commission on School Safety, to be chaired by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, that will explore possible solutions, such as the age requirement for purchases, officials said. She described the plan as "pragmatic".

Despite all that divides us, liberals and conservatives have come to agree that what comes out of Trump's mouth on matters of policy is all but meaningless. 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.

The Trump administration announced on Sunday its plan to address school safety in the wake of last month's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead.

"Now, this is not a popular thing to say, in terms of the NRA".

The shootings reignited fierce debate in the United States, and Mr Trump stunned members of Congress during White House meetings by voicing support for proposals long opposed by his fellow Republicans and accusing lawmakers of being afraid of the NRA.

Trump himself admitted in an earlier tweet that he is not now pushing age restrictions that could have prevented 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz from buying the powerful AR-15 assault rifle used on February 14 to kill 14 students and three adults at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. And deadly gun massacres are hardly limited to schools, as the people in Las Vegas, Orlando, Charleston and other communities know. And yet, these other weapons that we talk about ... they're allowed to buy them at 18. "We're going to work on getting the age up to 21 instead of 18".

India's domestic carriers IndiGo, GoAir cancel 50 flights
In an announcement on its website during the day, IndiGo said it has cancelled 47 flights across its domestic network for today. The IndiGo flight that was grounded on Monday was an Airbus 320 Neo aircraft with a Pratt and Whitney engine .

The DOJ issued a directive calling for the FBI to identify local jurisdictions that are failing to report arrests to their state repositories and heads of federal agencies to certify that they will report all relevant records to the NICS.

At a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday, Trump criticized policy commissions while speaking about the opioid problem, saying, "We can't just keep setting up blue-ribbon committees".

"Do you think the drug dealers who kill thousands of people during their lifetime, do you think they care who's on a blue-ribbon committee?"

Administration officials said they had not set a deadline for the commission's recommendations, but expected they'd be made in under a year.

The Department of Justice announced a series of actions Monday meant to support President Donald Trump's plan to prevent school shootings. Since nearly immediately after the Parkland shooting, the president has advocated arming some teachers as a solution to stopping future massacres.

In a meeting with lawmakers two weeks ago, Trump said, "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", referring to the AR-15-style assault weapon that was used to kill 17 and wound 15 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., on February 14. The White House has not proposed offering states new funding for this training. Also known as gun violence restraining orders, the proposal has earned the backing of conservatives, who see it as a way to curb the threat of those who raise red flags while respecting the Second Amendment and avoiding more general bans.
