President Trump reportedly sought advice on gun control from his Mar-a-Lago guests in the wake of Wednesday’s deadly school shooting in Florida. Sources cited by The Washington Post on Sunday said the president obsessively monitored media coverage of the massacre as he surveyed friends staying at the lavish resort on whether he should take action on gun control. Meanwhile, he has reportedly declined an invitation to attend a town hall on Wednesday featuring victims and survivors, some of whom publicly shamed him over the weekend for accepting NRA campaign contributions. Students-turned-activists from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have made it clear they want tighter gun control laws, and they say a White House “listening session” with students this week is just a way for Trump to avoid speaking with them directly.
