Trump eyes court cases, rulings on age limits

"To Jim Crane, General Manager Jeff Luhnow, President Reid Ryan, skipper A.J. Hinch... and all of the players and staff, congratulations on your incredible victory", President Trump said.

"There is broad-based support for raising the gun age limit". Just two days earlier, Trump had mocked commissions as something of a dead end while talking about the opioid epidemic. "It was not a legislative strategy session", Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texs, said Monday.

"It totally eviscerates the right of law-abiding adults between the ages of 18 and 21 to keep and bear arms", the NRA said. States were making decisions on this, he said, but added: "Things are moving rapidly on this, but not much political support (to put it mildly)".

Hoffman drew headlines last month when he said that he would refrain from supporting politicians who did not support a ban on assault weapon sales in the wake of the Parkland shooting.

In a series of tweets on Monday, Trump tried to put a positive spin on his retreat, saying, "Very strong improvement and strengthening of background checks will be fully backed by White House". "Students, businesses, survivors, elected officials, leaders. we invite everyone to participate in our movement, even if you don't agree with everything we say". Nearly all school shootings are in gun free zones.

No deadline was set for recommendations from Trump's planned commission, but officials expected them within a year. He has called for raising the minimum age for purchasing an AR-15 or similar-style rifles from 18 to 21 years old.

The president's plan would provide for "rigorous" firearms training for some teachers and urges Congress to pass a bill to make the federal background check system more effective.

The ultimate goal is to establish a self-sustaining colony on the Red Planet. Musk said a year ago that human landings on Mars could happen by 2024.

"The notion that my kids are going to school with teachers that are armed with a weapon is not something that, quite frankly, I'm comfortable with", the Republican said.

"I want to thank every member of the Astros team who spent time with those displaced in shelters", Trump said. Although the House of Representatives is slated to vote Wednesday on the STOP School Violence Act, which has bipartisan support, that bill deals largely with the issue of school safety rather than gun control. "Arming teachers does nothing to prevent that", said Lily Eskelsen García, NEA president, in a statement. "So how does that make sense?" he told school officials last month.

But Trump has also spoken repeatedly in recent weeks with the heads of the powerful National Rifle Association, which considers increasing the age of purchase to be an assault on the Second Amendment. Debunking the claims was Fox News host Shepard Smith who did so during a March 12 broadcast.

"If schools are mandated to be gun free zones, violence and danger are given an open invitation to enter".

The Department of Justice would help schools to partner the state and local law enforcement authorities to provide "rigorous firearm training to qualified personnel" on a voluntary basis, said an official, as part of efforts to "harden" U.S. schools. The two measures backed by Trump - an effort to strengthen the federal background check system and an anti-school violence grant program - both enjoy bipartisan support, though some Republicans object and many Democrats say they are insufficient.

-The FBI tip line will receive a full audit, review and changes to ensure important leads aren't ignored or missed. Invoking past mass school shootings, she continued, "No student, no family, no teacher and no school should have to live the horror of Parkland or Sandy Hook or Columbine again".
