Why Trump's modest proposal on guns still might not happen in Congress

Why Trump's modest proposal on guns still might not happen in Congress

Trump has been vocal about his belief that mental health issues are behind mass shootings like Parkland.

After publicly stating earlier this month that the National Rifle Association had little power over him, the president tweeted Monday that the White House would support NRA-approved gun control measures, which include arming teachers and a limited expansion of background checks.

That's just the latest contradiction from the president on guns. Instead he made a decision to only endorse the mildest possible compromise in Congress which is to ask states and federal agencies to follow the existing law. The House votes this week on a plan to give states more money for school security, and the Senate has its own plan that could potentially be included, but any addition would have to have the signoff of House and Senate Republicans and Democrats. I know my teachers.

We saw a similar unraveling of compromise play out in a January immigration debate.

Despite President Trump repeatedly advocating raising the gun buying age from 18 to 21, the White House instead opted to have a panel explore it as an option rather than make it a key component. Comprehensive background checks, restricting civilian use of weapons of war, and banning bump stocks will protect the public and should be federal law.

Actually, nearly all Senate Democrats were thrilled after that meeting.

NCAA tournament preview: No. 4 Auburn
The Cougars are averaging 7.7 three-pointers per game on 36.4% shooting from beyond the arc. "We're really excited", Harris said. During the NCAA Selection Show on TBS Sunday, Greg Gumbel revealed that Auburn had earned the No. 4 seed in the Midwest Region.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, later walked back both suggestions, saying "Universal means something different to a lot of people".

The bedrock of Trump's plan to make schools safer is a pledge of funding to help states pay for firearms training for teachers. He expressed his opposition to the deal when they arrived, they said. Trump ultimately put forward an immigration proposal to drastically change the legal immigration system that is so conservative most Republicans in Congress won't support it.

With the tariffs on aluminum and steel that the President announced last week being practically the sole exception, the Trump Administration has governed in accordance with G.O.P. orthodoxy. House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., had to interject to correct the president that's actually the opposite of what Trump wants to do.

"What you went through with Harvey, it was really a tribute, a show of spirit", Trump said.

"I think we could all see it coming".

"They have great power over you people", Trump said on February 28, referring to the NRA while addressing a group of lawmakers at the White House. "He's been an outlier for years", Sen. Fourteen months into the Trump administration, we have watched grand Oval Office promises of bipartisan leadership on immigration and guns fall apart amidst furious presidential implosions. 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.

"Quite simply, there is no rock bottom for Trump to hit in which he realizes the error of his ways and shifts course", Cohen, the author of American Maelstrom: The 1968 Election and the Politics of Division, wrote in a column for The Boston Globe.
