"Republican leaders of the U.S. Congress said ... they would not raise the minimum age for gun buyers, in a sign that one of President Donald Trump’s proposals likely will not get far on Capitol Hill," per Reuters.

What's next: Trump will release gun and school-safety proposals later this week.

  • Happening today: Two weeks after the massacre, "Students will return to the Parkland campus at 7:40 a.m. to find police officers with heavier artillery and teachers with open arms," per the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel.
  • And in 24 days, the student-organized March for Our Lives will come to Washington.

N.Y. Times Quote of the Day ... Sam Massell, a Democrat who was Atlanta mayor from 1970 to 1974, on Georgia lawmakers' threat to kill a tax break for jet fuel after Delta said it was ending an NRA promotional discount:

The controversial decision brought an abrupt end to the possibility of Stone spending time behind bars.
