The White House has unveiled gun and school safety proposals that include arming teachers but backtrack on president Donald Trump’s previous calls to raise the minimum age to purchase certain firearms to 21.

The Trump administration’s proposals vow to provide ‘rigorous firearms training’ to ‘specially qualified’ teachers on a voluntary basis. This includes assistance from the Department of Justice which will offer firearm training to school staff through their local agencies.

Sunday night’s announcements also included news that the president is establishing a Federal Commission on School Safety that will be headed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

The commission will largely focus on mental health and strengthening school security, but will also explore other solutions such as raising the age requirements for gun purchases, according to the White House.

Today’s announcements did not say when the commission’s findings will be released, but an official said it would be within a year.

‘Far too often the focus has been only on the most contentious fights — the things that have divided people and sent them into their entrenched corners,’ Devos said on Sunday, according to CNN.

‘But the plan that we’re going to advance and talk about is a pragmatic plan to dramatically increase school safety and to take steps to do so right away.’

As part of the the proposals, the Department of Homeland Security will work with state and local authorities in a public awareness campaign based on their ‘see something, say something’ anti-terrorism campaign.

The White House plans also mention supporting the transition of military veterans and retired law enforcement officials into education-related careers.

These proposals were expected to include raising the minimum age for buying long guns to 21, a measure Trump has said he would support, but the unveiled plans make no mention of this.
