Cox is clearly referencing the recent push by the NRA and mostly conservative legislators to pass laws that would permit teachers and other school staff to carry guns at school, as well as measures to add armed security to school properties.

Seventeen people were killed in last month's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, prompting a national conversation about gun laws, fierce advocacy for stronger gun control from surviving students and, initially, a move from Trump to buck his allies at the National Rifle Association.

Since Feb. 14 students have taken the lead in demanding action from the USA government and signaling out the National Rifle Association (NRA), a self-declared civil rights organization that lobbies to maintain a mostly unregulated market for all types of weapons, including military-grade assault rifles. And Trump is certainly no longer supporting an assault weapons ban, which he'd previously shown openness about.

"Some will be legislative, some will be administrative and some will be recommendations for states as well as a task force to study this issue in more depth and make more additional policy recommendations".
