>> The National Rifle Association, on Sunday, pushing back against President Trump's modest proposals to change US gun laws as support for more restrictions on firearms gains momentum on both sides of the political aisle after the Stoneman Douglas massacre. Last week, the White House said raising the age limit for buying AR-15 rifles and a ban on bump stocks are on the table.
But an NRA spokeswoman on ABC's This Week, said the gun group doesn't back any ban and opposes raising the minimum age. The NRA endorsed Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and spent millions of dollars on TV ads when he was the Republican candidate. Trump has often touted his support for the Second Amendment.
>> I love the Second Amendment.>> But now he and other Republicans are under pressure to show they are responding to safety concerns after the Parkland, Florida shooting. Which has mobilized high school students and gun control advocates and spurned several companies to sever ties with the NRA. A move the gun group called, quote, a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.
>> 21 or older.>> Florida Governor Rick Scott, a Republican and NRA member told Fox News Sunday that he supports raising the age to buy certain guns putting him at odds with the NRA.>> And we will completely ban the purchase or sale of bump stocks.>> Scott also said he does not agree that teachers should be armed, an idea backed by the NRA.
>> There would be teachers->> But Trump has endorsed it.>> You give them a little bit of a bonus.>> Saying he wants to see trained teachers able to carry concealed guns to ward off potential school shooters.>> It's time to make our schools a much harder target.
