President Donald Trump is planning to unveil his proposal on Sunday to “encourage school systems around the country to allow armed staff on school premises,” according to The Hill and The Wall Street Journal.

“According to The Journal, the plan will signal the president’s support for two bills currently in Congress as well as setting up a commission to identify grant money for school systems that find a way to issue concealed-carry permits to some staff members to help guard against school shootings. The two bills currently being considered by Congress would improve the nation’s background check system and authorize $50 million for school safety improvements.

The plan does not address a number of issues supported by gun control advocates, including a ban on bump stocks or raising the minimum age required to purchase a rifle to 21.”
