The Note: Beyond the emotion on gun violence

1 hour, 18 minutes ago

The TAKE with Rick Klein “We’re going to get it done,” President Donald Trump declared, in kicking off an extraordinary listening session on guns and school violence at the White House on Wednesday. But who is “we”? What is “it”? And when will things be done? When you get past the raw and powerful emotions on display in the room with the president, you necessarily move beyond the vague promises of action. You also lose some of the urgency – “Fix it!” one parent who lost a daughter at Parkland demanded – that right now is so palpable and visible, the urgency the very many student and parent activists spawned in the past week. The solutions outlined by the president so far include some with consensus and long histories of study, including expanded background checks and revised age limits on purchasing some weapons. Others are more controversial: Trump listed arming teachers and expanding mental health institutions as two ideas he’d like to pursue. As wrenching as recent days...
