Why Trump's modest proposal on guns still might not happen in Congress

The White House's plan, announced less than four weeks after the Valentine's Day school attack, will immediately establish a federal commission to explore other options as well.
At a campaign rally in Pennsylvania Saturday, Trump mocked the idea of a commission to solve problems government should tackle head-on.
Trump publicly favored age limits last month.
Michael A. Cohen, a Trump critic who accused the president of having "no core principles", said he's not surprised by the constant shifts. "That doesn't make sense".
He then turned toward Sen. "You can't be petrified". "Because you're afraid of the NRA, right?"
The World Series champs were the president's special guests Monday and even the loyal New Yorker had to admit, the 'stros deserved to be there! I'm asking why he chickened out. The bureau has been criticized for not following up on warnings about the suspect in the Parkland school shooting. Trump released the plan on Sunday night. Still, to see the White House's spin so forcefully rejected on the president's favorite network is to appreciate just how weak it is. The White House says that existing Justice Department funds meant to help local jurisdictions would be used to help teachers get firearms training with local law enforcement officials. States are making this decision. "Things are moving rapidly on this, but not much political support (to put it mildly)", Trump wrote on Twitter.
The Astros suited up Monday, not in the field, but at the White House.
"Right now the president's primary focus is on pushing through things that we know have broad bipartisan support or things that we can do from an administrative perspective that we can do immediately", Sanders said. A senior administration explained that there were no hard numbers yet on how much such a training would cost, but the president had said during a listening session that arming teachers would be "much less expensive than the guards" and would more effective. However, Washington isn't the only place where Americans are demanding action. The president not having support around raising the age limit for gun ownership is "just not true", Smith told the audience.
Asked why the age limit proposal was dropped from the administration plan, DeVos told NBC's Today show that the plan was the first step in a lengthy process.
Still, Trump argued that this was progress.
Instead, the White House reiterated its support for improvements to the National Instant Criminal Background Check through the "Fix NICS" bill, which would penalize federal agencies that don't properly report required records and reward states that comply by providing them with federal grant preferences.
Trump also called on states to pass temporary, court-issued Risk Protection Orders, which allow law enforcement to confiscate guns from individuals who pose risks to themselves and others, and temporarily prevent them from buying firearms.
Without strong advocacy from the White House, an ambitious gun package was unlikely to even get off the ground, given most Republicans' opposition to any new restrictions.
President Donald Trump will push states to make it easier to seize weapons from people a court finds unsafe, hold federal agencies more accountable for background checks, and promote arming teachers.
The National Education Association, the largest representative of US educators in the country, "overwhelmingly rejected" Trump's idea to arm school staff. "Educators need to be focused on teaching our students".
No deadline was set for recommendations from Trump's planned commission, but officials expected them within a year. They have an afternoon game scheduled Tuesday against the New York Mets.
