A series of anti-gun violence statues featuring a child hiding underneath a school desk and holding onto it with fear are debuting across the country this weekend, as student activists campaign to push voters to elect leaders against gun violence, gun control group Giffords announced.
School safety commission will not recommend new age limits on gun purchases
President Trump's Federal Commission on School Safety, established after the Parkland shooting, will not recommend a new age restriction for firearm purchases, people familiar with a draft report told the Washington Post.
The big picture: The commission concluded it found no evidence that age restrictions would reduce school shootings. Instead, it will urge states to increase safety training for gun owners in a report expected to be released sometime this year. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who heads the group, told federal lawmakers in June the commission won't examine the role of firearms in school violence incidents. Trump has previously told associates he's open to imposing a minimum purchase age of 21.
