Trump will speak with citizens affected by shootings

Por mayli2017

Trump said he wanted to ban a device that was used in the October 2017 massacre in Las Vegas, in which 58 people were shot dead. A legislative attempt to ban the device failed last year. The Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) announced in December 2017 the review of the weapons to be certain if they used such devices should be considered illegal under federal law. Trump signed, on Tuesday, a memorandum in which he instructed the agency to complete the review as soon as possible and propose a rule prohibiting all devices that convert legal weapons into machine guns. The Justice Department responded in a statement that it understands that it is a priority for the president and has acted quickly to move forward with the regulatory process.

While the community of Florida, disconsolate, calls for actions to improve control of weapons, President Donald Trump instructed the Department of Justice to propose rules that prohibit devices that allow the automation of weapons, such as the stock used in the Las Vegas massacre last year. It was a small signal of action on the subject of violence with firearms that for a long time has made Washington nervous.

According to the president, they must take action to protect American children, adding that his government is working hard to address the aftermath of the attack at Parkland High School, Florida, in which 17 people were shot, a week already. The president is scheduled to meet Wednesday with family members, students and teachers at the presidential residence, among whom will be people affected by the shootings in Parkland, Florida; Columbine, Colorado, and Newtown, Connecticut.

In a tweet the day before, Trump said he wanted to strengthen the background check system, but did not offer details. Regardless of the party they defend, it is necessary to focus now on the strengthening of the Background Check! After other massacres failed to push for more stringent gun control, the White House tries to show that it takes the problem seriously. The president, a supporter of the right to the possession of arms, has not supported other significant changes proposed by activists in favor of arms control. However, the White House supposed that President Trump was willing to listen to proposals and that his opinion was disrupted by the shooting in the Florida school.

When asked at a press conference if Trump was willing to reinstate a ban on assault weapons, spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded that White House officials had not closed any doors. In turn, she indicated that the idea of increasing the age limit to buy an AR-15 rifle was on the table to discuss. Senator Chris Murphy, a strong advocate of gun control, said Trump's directive suggested that the president was aware of a new dynamic on the issue and called it a signal that "for the first time" politicians are fearful of the political consequences of inaction on this issue.
