White House: Trump Didn't Bow to NRA on Guns

Martes, 13 Mar, 2018

"We are committed to working quickly because there's no time to waste", said DeVos, who will chair a federal commission on school safety.

When she was challenged on the fact that a majority of the public supports Trump's proposal on raising age requirements, Sanders sniffed at opinion surveys and metaphorically threw up her hands. Whether you support the President or not politically, a rational analysis shows that investors should pay attention to the reality, not the rhetoric. "I think it's something you have to think about".

Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Monday that the president had not abandoned the idea of raising the gun-buying age but that the plan released Sunday reflects what the executive branch can achieve now. "The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone". "Who could forget the amazing Jose Altuve?"

The plan he unveiled Sunday makes no mention of such confiscation. Since almost immediately after the Parkland shooting, the president has advocated arming some teachers as a solution to stopping future massacres. The commission does not have a set timeline of when it will report its findings, although an official said it would be within one year. President Donald Trump stood accused yesterday of caving in to the US gun lobby one month after the Florida school shooting, as the White House pushed ahead with plans to arm teachers but backpedaled on curbing access to assault rifles. It has already approved higher tariffs on Chinese-made washing machines, solar modules and some other goods.

Bremberg said the administration is backing two pieces of legislation: A bipartisan bill by Sens. Chris Murphy of Connecticut that would offer financial incentives to state and federal agencies to enter more data into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System - a proposal known as "Fix NICs" - but stops far short of the expanded background check bill that Trump promoted at the end of February.

Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor David Hogg says the laws need to be changed now. On Twitter, the Scientology Network posted a video previewing the network, which included footage of Scientology offices and the e-meter members use during auditing sessions. He is impossible to follow, in more ways than one.

The Astros won their first championship in franchise history with a thrilling 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the best-of-seven series. "No stone will be unturned".

The Justice Department did announce a concrete move Saturday - a plan to ban bump stocks.

Shah said Trump won't advocate for universal background checks for gun owners, but will focus on improving the current background check system through a bill known as FixNICS. But as TIME has reported, behind the scenes the NRA signaled to allies that a conversation about guns would not be seen as a betrayal. The NRA on Friday sued Florida over a new gun law signed by Republican Gov. Rick Scott that bans the purchase of firearms by anyone under the age of 21. So how does that make sense? This is what leadership looks like. He stopped talking about the issue he was going to solve.

But the new Florida restrictions have drawn opposition from some Republicans nationally. Sen. These court-issued orders allow for law enforcement officers to remove guns from people who pose a demonstrated threat, "to temporarily prevent such individuals from purchasing new firearms, all while still protecting due process rights", said Andrew Bremberg, a presidential assistant who heads the Domestic Policy Council.
