Trump 'asks Mar-a-Lago members what to do about gun control

 Trump is asking people their opinions

Donald Trump reportedly consulted guests staying at his Mar-a-Lago resort about what action he should take on gun control in the wake of the Florida school shooting.

The US President is said to have asked members of the luxury Florida resort whether he should take an active position on gun control after a gunman opened fire at a school in the small city of Parkland, around 45 miles north of Miami. The assailant killed 17 and left more than a dozen injured.

A number of people who reportedly spoke with Mr Trump at the resort during the two days he spent there, told The Washington Post that the president had observed media appearances made by student survivors of the massacre.

Mr Trump was said to have polled guests at the resort over whether she should opt to take a stand on gun control after the deadliest school shooting to take place since Adam Lanza opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, killing 20 children and six staff members.   

Survivors of Florida shooting have urged the world leader to implement gun control measures. Emma Gonzales, who survived the Valentines Day massacre, has been hailed as a leader for delivering an impassioned speech at a gun control rally.

“If the president wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a terrible tragedy and how it should never have happened and maintain telling us how nothing is going to be done about it,” Ms Gonzalez told the crowd in Fort Lauderdale. “I’m going to happily ask him how much money he received from the National Rifle Association (NRA)”.


on Sunday, the White House announced that Mr Trump would host a "listening session" with students to talk about school safety measures.

The current gun laws would do just fine if:

1 Departments shared information and cooperated with each other

2 Departments followed up on leads concerning individuals

3 Schools or their representatives would stop pushing DRUGS as a means of controlling kids,and report the kids on drugs to monitor gun purchases

4 If law enforcement was an ACTION rather than a name

5 People became more aware of their surroundings and parents raised their children rather than expecting schools to do the job
