US President Donald Trump is "supportive" of efforts to improve background checks on gun ownership, the White House says.

"I can tell you, the president supports not having the use of bump stocks and we expect further action on that in the coming days", Sanders said.

Chris Murphy, D-Conn., created to improve the sharing of mental health and criminal record information between state and local agencies and the federal background check database.

He has spoken to Republican Senator John Cornyn about a bipartisan bill he helped introduce, a statement said. Several of the students who survived the shooting that left 17 of their classmates and faculty members dead have since emerged as some of the strongest and most compelling voices for change.

On Sunday, when the President met with House Speaker Paul Ryan in Florida, the two men discussed a series of issues, including "the recent tragedy in Parkland, Florida".

The president, echoing something Vice President Mike Pence said over the weekend, said school security will be a top priority for his administration.

They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion.

Trump on Friday visited a hospital where numerous shooting victims were treated, as well as the headquarters of the Broward County Sheriff's Department.

"We cannot take actions that merely make us feel like we are making a difference, we must actually make a difference", Trump said.

Rally outside the White House comes amid a growing protest movement calling for stricter gun control laws in the US.

Seeking to increase pressure for gun control, the students plan to visit the state capitol in Tallahassee this week to demand immediate action. "We need our children safe", he said.

On Twitter, Trump hit out at Democrats over their alleged failure to pass gun control legislation.

As you may know already, Federal Bureau of Investigation did previously admit that they failed to follow protocol after someone called in January to tip them about the 19-year-old shooter's unusual behavior.
