Trump puts Republicans in the hot seat on guns

US gun seller ends sale of assault rifles

Students returned to class at the high school, Wednesday, following the February 14 mass shooting that killed several students and teachers.

Something must be done: Donald Trump has called on U.S. lawmakers to "go big" on legislation to prevent more school shootings.

The Senate could vote this week on the legislation from Sens.

A major United States gun retailer, Dick's Sporting Goods, said on Wednesday that it would immediately end sales of assault-style rifles and high-capacity magazines, and would not sell any guns to people under 21.

The president repeatedly stated his support for increasing armed security at schools, arming teachers and reducing "gun-free zones". Instead, he said, Congress should let him do that through executive order. Why not use Justice Department lawyers?

Wednesday's move takes them out of its 35 Field & Stream outlets as well, Stack said, adding the measure would be permanent.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said top officials believe the hardware can be banned through the regulatory process.

"I like that responsibility", he said. In January, conservatives similarly criticized Trump for airing support for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, in another bipartisan meeting with lawmakers.

The president expressed support for the first time for state laws that allow police to temporarily seize guns from people reported to be risky, but went even further to say they should not need to get a court order beforehand.

Lately it seems as if President Donald Trump and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise have started their own mutual admiration society.

"You're afraid of the NRA".

But Rivera, a Trump ally, scolded the president on Twitter for appearing to back away from the proposal.

Going into the second leg against Madrid next Tuesday, it is still possible that the French club can qualify for the next round. Aguero told Radio Cope: "I think Real will progress". "For his participation against Real, if I had to say yes or no today".

Trump acted as if he wanted that mantle of leadership.

Cornyn said 50 senators have now signed up to support his bill, which he said could be used as a "base" for debating other measures as amendments.

Trump's comments on the NRA are notable because Toomey's expanded background check bill from 2013 was opposed by the National Rifle Association.

He has done such a thing before.

The "Fix NICS" bill, similar to one approved a year ago in the House, would reward federal agencies and states that utilize the background check system, and penalize those that don't properly report required records used to determine whether someone can legally buy a gun.

It was a remarkable shift for the president, who has frequently touted his endorsement from the NRA, and cast himself as a supporter of gun rights and gun owners.

Trump also accused Sen. The bill was originally created in response to the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, according to The Washington Post.

Cornyn, the Senate's No. 2 Republican, questioned Trump's proposal to raise the age limit for assault weapons, noting that the minimum age to enlist in the military is 18. He noted that the House could support a narrow background-check bill if it's paired with an NRA priority, a bill to allow concealed carry permits to apply across state lines. "I've got to give credit to Donald Trump".

Scalise and other House Republicans were clearly stunned, and senators, notably California Democrat Dianne Feinstein, pleased. Republicans have instead been leaning toward modest legislation created to improve the background system already in place.

Trump urged the lawmakers to be as tough as they can and still come up with something that will pass, even as he brushed off Sen.

Walmart announced Wednesday that it will no longer sell firearms and ammunition to people younger than 21 and would also remove items resembling assault-style rifles from its website. "I don't think the correct age is handed down by Moses".

He ended the gathering by telling lawmakers that he'd rather see legislation that's too strong than too weak.
