During her press briefing on Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refuted reporters' suggestions that President Donald Trump "chickened out" and backed away from his gun proposals. He added that an effort to bar bump stock devices was coming and that "Highly trained expert teachers will be allowed to hide carry, subject to State Law. Armed guards okay, deterrent!"

On Monday morning, Trump tweeted that the administration will monitor "court cases and rulings before acting".

President Donald Trump will push states to make it easier to seize weapons from people a court finds risky, hold federal agencies more accountable for background checks, and promote arming teachers.

At the same meeting February 28 with lawmakers where he discussed raising the gun-buying age, Trump alarmed gun rights activists by suggesting he would confiscate guns from people who posed threats, then "go through due process".

But after meeting with NRA officials, both parties released statements saying Trump supports the Second Amendment and due process but not gun control.

Seventeen people were shot dead at a Florida high school last month. He's also met and spoken with the heads of the powerful National Rifle Association.

"He backed off his openness toward an assault weapons ban, support for expanded background checks, barring those who exhibit "red flags" from buying guns and raising the age to buy assault weapons to 21". Even though he supported it, the president described the latter measure as untenable in the current political climate. Trump tweeted on his plan, which is seen below.

Olorunnipa also asked if Trump fully supports a compromise plan on gun policy from Sens.

"These proposals could be done right now". We want to build on this.

The proposals kick the can down the road, said Ms Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, adding that bringing guns into schools was risky.

Gun control advocates remain determined to maintain the pressure on lawmakers.

"You know why?" said Trump, answering his own question.

The plan he unveiled Sunday makes no mention of such confiscation.

No student, no family, no teacher and no school should have to live the horror of Parkland or Sandy Hook or Columbine again. So there is a lot of public support.

Beckett: There are elements of it that really do have broader backing from gun violence prevention experts. On gun safety, they shrug and pass the buck to the states. Basically what the White House has said is that there are existing state and local programs to allow some school personnel to carry guns within the schools, to carve out exceptions under federal law to allow them to do that. and that they want to sort of build on what some states are already doing.
