Trump pushes for ban on modified guns

Many criticized Trump for insensitivity after he said in a weekend Twitter post that the Federal Bureau of Investigation may have been too distracted with a Russian Federation probe to follow leads that could have prevented the massacre.

US President Donald Trump is spending the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago estate, although reporters have not seen him since Friday when he visited injured victims of the mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school.

"I am not going back to school until lawmakers and the president change this law", said Tyra Hemans, a 12th-grade student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where the shooting occurred.

The new regulations, which are still being negotiated, would likely ban the use of bump stocks- the accessory which turns semi-automatic guns into automatic weapons.

Bump stocks have come under scrutiny in the past several months after the Las Vegas shooter used them to fire guns in rapid succession.

This includes the 2013 championship and an appearance the previous year in the tournament semi-finals known as the 'Final Four'. Pitino, who was sacked as Louisville's coach on October 16, faced a five-game suspension at the start of ACC play this season.

Trump made the announcement Tuesday, saying that the memo is the result of a DOJ review of bump stock devices that began in December in the wake of the October massacre at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas.

Mr Trump added that he wanted to moved past "cliches and exhausted debates" to bring in security measures that will "actually work" - and said new regulations would be finalised "very soon".

At a press briefing shortly before the medal ceremony, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Trump was working with individuals, state and local officials, and federal officials to reach solutions on gun legislation. Fully automatic weapons, or machine guns, are illegal in the U.S., but semiautomatic weapons like the AR-15 used in the Florida shooting are not.

The president also called for better physical protection of schools, and for better coordination between federal and state law enforcement in order to take "swift action" when there are warning signs.

Prior to being elected, Trump earned the support of the National Rifle Association.

"Blaming everyone but the shooter and the lack of gun control in our country".

The suspect, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, used a AR-15 style assault rifle, which he legally purchased.

As during similar remarks late last week, however, the vice president did not specify how much that might cost or whether the administration will seek emergency funds or push Congress to include the required monies in fiscal 2018 and 2019 spending measures.

The White House would consider barring all firearms for some individuals, like those with mental illnesses, rather than guns like assault weapons for all Americans, according to the official.
