Trump proposes package of policies following mass shooting in Parkland, Fla.

The White House said Sunday the federal government will help provide ?rigorous firearms training? for qualified volunteer school personnel as part of a package of policy changes President Donald Trump will proposal in the wake of the mass shooting in Parkland, Fla.

Trump will call on states to pass measures allowing police to remove weapons or prevent gun sales for those who pose a threat. And Trump will ask Congress to pass the bills to increase the amount of records sent to the flawed National Instant Criminal Background Check System and to provide money to improve school security.

?There is no time to waste,? Education Secretary Betsy DeVos told reporters Sunday night. ?No student, no family, no teacher and no school should have to live the horror of Parkland or Sandy Hook or Columbine again.?

But Trump?s much anticipated school safety program includes few immediate actions by his administration and none that are likely to be opposed by the powerful National Rifle Association.

Instead, he is relying on states and Congress to act.
