Trump says guns will be top of the agenda with governors

As U.S. President Donald Trump hosted governors for dinner at the White House on Sunday, he said discussions on guns will be on their agenda as they meet this week.

The National Rifle Association pushed back on Sunday against modest proposals by Trump and other Republicans to change U.S. gun laws after a school shooting in Florida that killed 17 students and staff.

The powerful gun lobby group does not support Trump's proposals to raise the age limit for buying certain types of guns and to ban bump stocks that enable semi-automatic rifles to shoot hundreds of rounds a minute, a spokeswoman said on ABC's "This Week."

"The NRA doesn't back any ban," Dana Loesch said.

Trump was endorsed by the NRA in his 2016 presidential election campaign and often trumpets his support for Americans' constitutional right to own guns.
