A rundown of President Trump's bipartisan meeting on gun legislation

Biggest publishers in gaming A rundown of President Trump's bipartisan meeting on gun legislation

But the president said he told NRA officials over lunch recently that changes in gun culture are needed.

After the days of debate over just how narrow a gun bill would have to be to get through Congress, prompted by the deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school, Trump opened the door wide and Democrats were determined to hold it there.

"I like taking guns away early", Trump said in a freaky, free-flowing meeting with lawmakers.

"They are law-abiding citizens", Toomey said.

The House package also included a measure to study bump stocks after the Las Vegas assault, the deadliest mass shooting in USA history. Meadow's relatives attended a previous White House session with Trump.

WIBC host Tony Katz discussed the Presidents comments and apparent departure from the GOP's traditional stance on gun control during his morning show Thursday.

"Recent events demonstrate the need for additional action on the part of responsible gun retailers", Kroger said in an email.

The Democratic senators say in their letter that "we couldn't agree more". In January, he met with a bipartisan group on the thorny immigration issue, pledging to "take the heat" if they came up with legislation.

The efforts in Congress comes as Trump has floated his own shifting ideas on gun safety, including a proposal for arming teachers that has support from the National Rifle Association, but few backers on Capitol Hill. "Despite the huge pressure that will come from the hard right, the president must stick with these principles", Schumer said.


In a Senate speech Thursday, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a Republican, said any new legislation needs to close gaps in the monitoring of disturbed people posing threats to schools, signs that were missed in the Florida shooting.

"The gun lobby has had a veto power", Murphy replied, adding, "It's going to have to be you that brings the Republicans to the table".

"You guys, half of you are so afraid of the NRA", the president said Monday at a meeting with the nation's governors.

"They have told me they are reconsidering", Toomey said.

Asked about Wednesday's meeting, NRA spokesperson Jennifer Baker said the organization opposed numerous proposals aired during the meeting. "We should be focusing on making sure that citizens who should not get guns in the first place don't get those guns".

"The reason that nothing's gotten done here is because the gun lobby has had a veto power over any legislation that comes before Congress", Mr Murphy said. His move comes after weeks of protests from student survivors of the mass shooting in Parkland, FL. Some lawmakers flatly rejected the concept, and Trump agreed the matter should be left up to states.

Afterward, Toomey and Manchin said in a joint statement that the meeting was "very encouraging", and that "per the president's instruction, Congress shouldn't wait" on sending Trump gun legislation. And he floated the prospect of taking guns away from people who might be risky, even before they have a chance to defend themselves in court.

The episode was evocative of another in recent memory: a similar bipartisan meeting Trump held in January on immigration, where he at times seemed to suggest he'd support passing clean relief for young undocumented immigrants who had come to the United States as children, including in another conversation with Feinstein. With Trump unwilling (and, in all likelihood, unable) to proffer a concrete plan-or even an ideologically consistent interpretation of the Second Amendment-Republicans are, once again, in a holding pattern.

"The political reality we're living in today is if President Trump doesn't get behind something they won't have the cover, " Manchin said.
