In the wake of last month’s high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, President Trump is specifying his plans for gun laws. Senior officials told reporters on Sunday that his new plan is “pragmatic.”

Trump is backing legislation aimed at providing more data for the background check system. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will lead a commission to study more contentious proposals.

One such proposal includes background checks for guns bought at gun shows or on the internet.
