After the meeting, Murphy told reporters: "I'm anxious that this was the beginning and the end of the president's advocacy on this issue".

Trump supports a bill that would strengthen a database of people who are not legally allowed to buy guns. "That's what we have to do".

Toomey said Thursday that he didn't fear the NRA, and he called on Trump to back the measure, believing it has a better chance now.

Trump also told a recent meeting of governors that it's time for them to pick a fight with the gun-rights lobby.

Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman suggested that even if the Senate can find agreement, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Ohio, will face a tougher legislative lift in the House. "Gun free zones are proven targets of killers".

Lawmakers were frustrated by Trump's comments.

Wednesday's move takes them out of its 35 Field & Stream outlets as well, Stack said, adding the measure would be permanent. A regulatory ban likely would invite lawsuits from gun manufacturers, agency officials say. Republican leaders in the House had paired that NRA priority with a modest measure to improve data reporting to the existing instant background check system.

Throughout the meeting, Trump encouraged members to present their ideas. "Take the guns first, go through due process second".

Action on gun legislation skidded to a halt Thursday in Congress - not for a lack of bipartisan proposals, but because President Donald Trump's stunning shift on gun policy left some in his party confused, irritated and scrambling to figure out what to do next.

"The gun lobby has had a veto power", Murphy replied, adding, "It's going to have to be you that brings the Republicans to the table".

"President Trump has done incredible work to turn this country around". Cruz, a former student at Stoneman Douglas, is accused of using an AR-15 assault-style weapon to carry out the killing.

Trump acted as if he wanted that mantle of leadership. "No one of these bills, or all of them together, would be a panacea for mass shootings or gun violence in general". "I'm with you, but let it be a separate bill", Trump said.

Toomey responds after Trump's 'afraid' of NRA comment

He has done such a thing before.

Several major corporations, including MetLife, Hertz and Delta Air Lines, have cut ties with the NRA since the Florida tragedy, but none were retailers that sold guns.

Trump suggested that Sens. Joe Manchin created in response to the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Toomey told Trump that "the vast majority" of 18- to 20-year-old Pennsylvanians with long guns are law-abiding and "to deny them their Second Amendment rights isn't going to make anyone safer".

Steve Kelly, a spokesman for Toomey, countered the president's claim, noting Toomey "never wavered" in his support of expanded background checks, despite pressure from the NRA.

The House approved the bill late previous year as part of a broader package that also expanded gun rights by requiring states to recognize conceal-carry permits issued by other states. "I've got to give credit to Donald Trump".

Meanwhile, progressive Democrats like Sen. Republicans have instead been leaning toward modest legislation created to improve the background system already in place.

In the House, many Democrats - and a few Republicans - also want to reinstate an assault weapons ban that expired more than a decade ago.

He ended the gathering by telling lawmakers that he'd rather see legislation that's too strong than too weak. The weak side would be much easier. "I'm the least racist person you have ever interviewed".

The President did, however, leave open the door to taking it up in the future.

Trump's preferred policies been well documented since the Parkland shooting. Feinstein, sitting beside the President, nodded in agreement.
