Trump tells senators'You're afraid of the NRA

Joe Manchin - but that he didn't see a path forward to the president's desk.

Trump chastised fellow Republicans for being "afraid of" the National Rifle Association.

Mr Trump was responding to comments from Vice President Mike Pence that families and local law enforcement should have more tools to report potentially unsafe individuals with weapons.

"Our staffs are meeting".

It is not clear how serious the President might be about his comments, as he frequently offers up potential solutions to problems only for those comments to be rolled back by Republicans and White House staffers.

"I've been here for a little bit than a year, what surprises me more than anything else is that nothing has been done for all these years", the President told members of both parties as they discussed how best to respond to the recent school shooting in Florida.

That enthusiasm so far isn't shared publicly by Senate Republican leadership. Despite public calls for stricter gun laws, Republican leaders have largely kept quiet after the shooting which left 17 dead and ushered in another phase in the gun debate, prompted in large part by the activism of the young survivors.

"We'd love to do that at some point".

"I think he was stating that as a leader he would have stepped in and hopefully been able to help, as a number of the individuals that were in the school", Sanders said.

During the meeting, Democratic Sen. After the meeting, Murphy told reporters: "I'm anxious that this was the beginning and the end of the president's advocacy on this issue".

"But right now we don't have that", Cornyn added.

Throughout Wednesday's meeting, Trump described the Toomey-Manchin proposal to expand background checks to gun show sales and online purchases as a possible base for building a comprehensive gun measure. But know this, and you said it, all of that can break down and someone can go into a gun-free zone and just kill at will.

He voiced support for mandating background checks at gun shows and internet sales, and for raising the age for legally buying rifles to 21 from 18. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., to "get together, and we could put it in one great piece of legislation".

"As soon as he becomes president, he adopts Michael Bloomberg's agenda", said Hammond, referencing the former mayor of New York City, who is a prominent supporter of pro-gun control groups. Ideas with enough broad support could then be included, while proponents of others could have their shot as well, Toomey said.

The company will also stop selling high-capacity magazines and will not sell any guns to people under age 21, Dick's chief executive Ed Stack said in an open letter on the company's website and in television interviews on Wednesday. "I" m going to vote against it, but the Senate will work its will". Chris Murphy of CT, and other senators from both parties, are pushing a bill to improve reporting to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

I'm asked that question more than nearly any other question.

The President once again called for the need to "harden" schools and arming "people with a certified training" to carry guns in schools, though he noted that "some people will oppose" that - and urged those opponents to voice their criticism.
