Sunday’s announcement is expected to signal Trump’s support for two gun-related bills under review by Congress, the WSJ reported.
One bill seeks to improve background checks for gun purchases, a proposal that has hit roadblocks in Congress. Another bill, known as the STOP School Violence Act, would provide $50 million a year for safety improvements such as violence prevention training for teachers and students.
Additionally, Trump will likely create a task force to study gun violence and school safety. The president has repeatedly said that designating schools as “gun-free zones” makes them less safe.
