Trump, Clinton, Sanders set to unveil new plan to crack down on gun violence

President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will unveil a new plan Thursday to crack back on gun-related violence, the White House said.

Trump will sign the proposal in the Rose Garden with Clinton, who is in the White Senate office for the first time in years, The Hill reported.

Trump’s executive order, titled the “President’s Emergency Plan for Gun Violence,” would include measures to increase the penalties for gun-rights supporters, increase the number of federal firearms and background checks and expand the use of federal grants for mental health services.

The plan also calls for expanded federal gun seizures, expanded background checks, more federal funding for gun safety and a ban on high-capacity magazines, the report said.

“There’s no question that there’s more that we can do, but there’s no way that we’re going to be able to do it alone,” said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

“We need the Congress to work with us to do that.”

The White House also said the proposal is intended to address gun violence that has left over 20,000 people dead in the U.S. since 2000.

The number of Americans killed by gun violence in 2016 was more than double the number in 2009.

Trump signed the executive order in March, two weeks after taking office, in an effort to bolster the nation’s gun laws.

Trump has vowed to close loopholes that allow gun owners to legally purchase firearms and to increase gun safety.

Clinton, a Democrat who has advocated for gun control measures, also has proposed several gun safety measures during her time in the Senate.

Her plan would increase the federal minimum legal age for purchasing guns to 21 and expand background checks to include gun sales.

Clinton has also proposed expanding the number and types of guns that can be purchased and would require background checks for all gun sales, including those at gun shows and on the internet.

Trump is expected to sign the plan Thursday.

Sanders, who will be the first woman to hold the position, has said her plan would expand background check requirements to private gun sales and to gun shows.
