"After many years, a Bill should emerge", Trump went on.

The second-term Republican's main proposal is a measure that would expand background checks for firearm purchases to include sales online and at gun shows. Sometimes after an idea was presented Trump would look at colleagues and ask if it could be added to the base bill.

"Fellows, if you can all get together and we can get one great piece of legislation - people want to see something happen". Trump said. The president repeatedly took positions that put himself at odds with the NRA and Republicans.

Speaking to lawmakers before directing the remark at Toomey, Trump recommended giving "serious thought" to raising the age requirement for rifle purchases, despite the NRA's opposition to the proposal.

Trump indicated that he would support arming 10 to 40 percent of teachers with concealed weapons, especially those with prior military or law enforcement experience.

I had lunch with them.and said, 'It's time. "Senator Toomey has demonstrated that he is not afraid of the NRA or any other special interest group".
