John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety, called the plan "a complete failure of leadership".

"In the last few weeks, the president has insisted on one animating principal, to address national school safety", Bremberg said.

It is almost a month after a deadly school shooting in Florida left 17 students and other school staffs dead.

The White House actions come nearly exactly a month after the February 14 shooting killed 14 students and three adults at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and a few days ahead of a nationwide school walkout to honor the victims and press for stronger gun control measures, planned for Wednesday morning.

Trump has held talks with lawmakers, shooting survivors and the families of the victim.

He says: "On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting".

"Now, this is not a popular thing to say, in terms of the NRA".

However, Shah said Trump will not advocate for universal background checks.

Americans must be 18 to buy a rifle or shotgun and 21 to buy a handgun off licensed dealers under federal law. "So I think he's applying that tactic now", Scaramucci said of the ongoing tensions between the US and North Korea. The White House will advance a pragmatic plan that will dramatically increase school security right away.

Trump's embrace of another commission appears at odds with comments he made Saturday night mocking their use, at least when it comes to fighting drug addiction.

The Trump Administration is reportedly considering a new policy, making drug traffickers eligible for the death penalty.

A senior administration official said on condition of anonymity Sunday that while there was no explicit deadline to implement the program, "we will see responses in under a year". "For those who are capable, this is one solution that can and should be considered; but no one size fits all".

A former close adviser to Donald Trump says the US president's negotiating strategy depends on whether he views you as an ally or an adversary, and as far as he can surmise, Canada is considered the former. Since nearly immediately after the Parkland shooting, the president has advocated arming some teachers as a solution to stopping future massacres.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, later walked back both suggestions, saying "Universal means something different to a lot of people".

As for the president's call to arm school personnel, the only action the White House is formally expected to endorse Monday is the Justice Department's working with states to help interested localities in arming and training qualified individuals, with no details yet provided on how such programs will be funded.

DeVos said the commission will "bring together a wide-array of practitioners", including teachers "on the front lines" to focus on how to bolster school safety, identify at-risk students early on, and increase access to mental health services.

Bremberg said the administration is backing two pieces of legislation: A bipartisan bill by Sens.

While not immediately committing to any ideas or timetables, DeVos said, "No stone will be left unturned" in the effort to uncover and highlight evidence-based approaches proven to reduce violence. The new plan also includes gun control recommendations for states, Congress and for administrative action.

The U.S. Justice Department has submitted a regulation that would make the devices illegal to own or sell.

But officials backed off President Donald Trump's call to raise the age limit on buying certain firearms. Just this weekend, Yahoo News published an article in which National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Steve Stivers celebrated these victories and expressed confidence that they will continue: "The NRCC is undefeated in special elections this year, and I'm supremely confident that will continue".

Trump has vacillated in his public pronouncements about guns. That incident has re-energized the gun control debate. Dianne Feinstein, Calif., and other Democrats who have long sought to toughen gun laws and ban semiautomatic assault rifles.

Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, on Twitter dismissed the administration's measures as "baby steps designed not to upset @NRA", the powerful National Rifle Association gun lobby.
