Trump calls meeting on gun control after supporting reform

Not the problem

Not the problem

He alluded to his signature proposal to arm some teachers, but said he would defer to lawmakers on the proposal, which has drawn much opposition.

Mr Trump told Mr Murphy that he is ready to take a lead on the issue. "It would be so attractive to have one bill that everyone could support", Trump said.

"Let's do what we can and build from there, " Cornyn said. "That's what we have to do".

President Trump surprised Republicans and Democrats alike Wednesday, in pushing for several measures that would strengthen gun control. But a White House spokesperson insisted Tuesday that the president still supported the idea.

Dick's Sporting Goods, a prominent seller of guns in the United States, says it will permanently stop selling assault-style rifles after the massacre at a Florida high school that has reopened a fierce debate over gun control in America. He said he told its leaders at a lunch on Sunday: "We're going to stop this nonsense".

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

US President Donald Trump has told a group of lawmakers not to be so "petrified" of the powerful gun lobby the National Rifle Association (NRA).

All Children Should Have to Get the Flu Shot
If you haven't been living under a rock for the past couple of winter months, then you have heard something about the flu season. Hodges said this flu is spread through the eyes, nose and mouth. "That's a signal of how very intense this flu season has been".

The new poll, conducted after Trump's comments about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, aimed to show African Americans' disappointment with Trump's leadership as Black History Month came to a close. Why not use Justice Department lawyers?

Toomey said afterward that he's been hearing from lawmakers who didn't vote for his legislation previously who say they might support it now. A regulatory ban likely would invite lawsuits from gun manufacturers, agency officials say. "If not, the status quo will largely remain", said Doug Heye, a veteran Republican operative and former Republican National Committee communications director. Trump is scheduled to meet with Sen.

Television personality Geraldo Rivera is expressing skepticism that President Donald Trump will achieve any new gun control measures. "You're afraid of the NRA right?"

A couple Republicans seconded the notion that Trump uniquely can provide them cover if he backs them up. The president, per CNN, appears to be softening his position on raising the age at which people can purchase AR-15 rifles, the weapon used in the Parkland massacre, and similar weapons.

Trump acted as if he wanted that mantle of leadership. "It would be so handsome to have one bill that everybody can support".

He has done such a thing before.

He also noted his desire for legislation, while juggling the need to signal his fealty to the gun rights: "After many years, a Bill should emerge".

Bezel-less BlackBerry Ghost In Works, To Be India Exclusive
BlackBerry is reportedly getting ready for another Android-powered handset after launching Motion and KeyOne previous year . The company is intent on introducing the Ghost which will be a bezel-less phone and which will run on the Android platform.

During the bi-partisan meeting, the president crossed both party lines and the NRA.

Trump received a word of caution from Sen.

Their bill originally was offered in 2013, after the killing of 26 children and adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. "I like taking the guns early", Trump said Wednesday.

But at the meeting, the President repeatedly rejected the NRA's top legislative priority, a Bill known as concealed carry reciprocity, which would allow a person with permission to carry a concealed weapon in one state to automatically do so in every state.

Murphy sought to give him a reality check: "I think you underestimate the power of the gun lobby".

He later added that "Amy and Dianne" would not go for that - referring to Democratic Sens.

The House passed legislation in December that included changes to the background-check system.

This way, OBC claimed, Simbhaoli Sugars has misappropriated the money lent by it and "there is clear cut division of funds". The loan was sanctioned according to a Reserve Bank of India Scheme to around 5,700 farmers supplying sugar to the company.

Ryan did not commit to passing the background check bill on its own and panned other bills, including stiffer background checks and an assault weapons ban. "I don't think the correct age is handed down by Moses". "I'd rather have you come down on the strong side instead of the weak side".
