He said: "When it comes to preventing future acts of horrific school violence, this is the beginning of the journey". It also creates a so-called guardian program enabling some teachers and other school employees to carry guns.

Despite the new provisions, the bill fell short on achieving the ban on assault-style weapons that was sought by survivors of the recent shooting at the Parkland high school. With me now is Democrat Ted Deutch.

One of them, Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was among those killed, hailed the bill as "a start".

TED DEUTCH: It's good to be with you.

Student activists called the legislation "a baby step". It's an important bill. In fact, a large percentage of Americans think we have universal background checks.

White House aides said Monday the president was focusing on achievable options, after facing significant opposition from lawmakers on a more comprehensive approach.

Cruz, now 19, had a history of mental issues, numerous encounters with police and was expelled from Stoneman Douglas past year for disciplinary problems, according to authorities.

"It's just insane to me that you can't buy a beer at 19, but you can buy an AR-15", Haslam said during an event at the Pew Charitable Trusts in Washington last month following the shooting in South Florida. I'm proud of the Parkland students, parents and teachers for raising their voices, and of course disheartened (but not surprised) by those who criticize these foolish kids and their lofty notions about changing anything. That's the bare minimum.

The National Rifle Association reacted Friday with a federal lawsuit after Florida lawmakers approved gun legislation that would raise the age to buy guns. He has - he's backed away from that now.

The U.S. House bill does not include any gun-related provisions. "I'm sure there are NRA members that agree with this bill, some that don't agree with this bill".

"It's an example to the entire country that government can, and has, moved fast", he said. One of the proposals would classify almost any semi-automatic weapon as an "assault weapon", while also banning transfer of assault weapons, whether by sale or gift. But background checks are something that should've been on the floor already. However, as of this writing, bump stocks are not believed to have been used in the Parkland, Florida, school shooting.

President Trump ordered the Justice Department to work to ban bump stocks last month, after the deadly shooting at a high school in Florida.

MARTIN: The question I was going to ask you is when one - that's a debatable point.

"You know why?" said Trump, answering his own question. In the 1960s and 70s I watched young Americans bring about change on civil rights and US involvement in Vietnam. And no, we haven't given up. It's interesting, though that the organization would make this argument when women are disproportionately affected by gun violence. Her attempts and those of other senators and representatives have failed as the NRA has flexed their lobbying power and spread their corrupt cash around Congress. That's it. And that clarity has been provided by these students. "The NRA is really just saving face with its members to say, 'Hey, we're going to challenge gun control laws no matter what'". That's why it's so important that there's a national standard here.
