A deadly mass shooting of Florida High school students has law makers call for restricted sale of assault riffles.
Trump on the other hand suggests arming of teachers as a way of stopping the killings.
As he held a one hour long meeting with students who survived the Florida attack and a parent of a student who did nor survive,Trump said he considers arming teaches.A call that he needs backing from the powerful National Riffles Association gun lobby.
There were lobbying efforts by parents and teenagers at the White House and from Florida statehouse in Tallahassee with some students staging walkouts from classrooms and others making rallies in cities across the country.
Donald Trump has by on the fore front in the fight against fire arms a fight that was supported by NRA in his campaign in 2016 where he said he will put age restriction on buying guns and tighten background checks.
In the recent attacks,17 students and educators were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School becoming the second most deadliest school shooting at a U.S public school.
Lawmakers in Tallahassee said they would consider the age limit to 21 years as that applied in alcohol and handguns.The move was however opposed by the senate who opted not to take the gun control measure.
