Trump predicts quick action on background checks, bump stocks

President Donald Trump continued his calls to arm more teachers with guns to protect schools in a joint news conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Friday.

He predicted that congressional action will “happen very quickly” on improving the background check system and regulating bump stocks – devices that can be used to effectively turn a legal rifle into a machine gun.

Earlier this week Trump directed the Justice Department to draft new regulations to ban bump stocks.

His comments echoed what he said Friday morning in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference where he repeated his calls to arm some teachers and provide more security to schools, as well as providing more mental health support.
