White House Drops Gun Control Push

On Monday, President Donald Trump dropped his earlier calls to pursue more stringent gun control laws, putting him back on the same page as the National Rifle Association. Mr. Trump embraced the agenda of the NRA, which includes arming teachers and making incremental changes to the background check system.

On live television, Trump had made a call to raise the age limit for buying rifles after the Parkland massacre that occurred early February. He also backed legislation for universal background checks. Mr. Trump told lawmakers that the NRA possesses “great power over you people, [but] they have less power over me.”

While President Trump didn’t refer to the Oval Office meeting he had with officials of the NRA this month, he conceded to the lobbying successes of the NRA.

Student groups which support gun control are planning a demonstration to take place in Washington, DC on March 24. Survivors and victims of school shootings across the country are planning to push their state governments to take action. However, President Trump said that there is still a lack of political support when it comes to raising the age limit for buying rifles.

Mr. Trump also said that his administration is currently in the process of studying the issues. He said that states should determine whether to prohibit individuals under the age of 21 from purchasing the assault weapon the gunman used to murder students in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
