The White House said raising the age limit is a "state-based discussion" and said the issue would be looked at further by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who was picked to head up a task force to come up with school safety solutions.
The Wall Street Journalreports that Trump is defending his decision to not include age restrictions on the federal level in his plan to reduce violence with guns at schools.

The White House laid out a series of proposals on Sunday that it said Trump meant to pursue to increase school safety following the Florida school shooting in February. "Arming teachers does nothing to prevent that", said Lily Eskelsen García, NEA president, in a statement. And yet, these other weapons that we talk about ... they're allowed to buy them at 18. "So how does that make sense?" he told school officials last month, remarks that sparked a backlash from some Republican lawmakers and the powerful National Rifle Association. In another tweet, he said, "On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting". Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., tweeted that Trump "couldn't even summon the political courage to propose raising the age limit on firearm purchases - despite repeated promises to support such a step at a meeting with lawmakers".
No deadline was set for recommendations from Trump's planned commission, but officials expected them within a year. "So what he is pushing forward are things that can be immediately accomplished either through the administration or that have broad-based bipartisan support in Congress".

Reviews will determine if any changes or clarifications are needed to improve coordination between mental health and other healthcare professionals, school officials, and law enforcement personnel.
And in that meeting, Trump demanded aggressive tools to repossess the guns of those who might be risky: "Take the guns first, go through due process second". Less than two weeks after that meeting, his White House formalized his drift back to the right.
"Good (Great) meeting in the Oval Office tonight with the NRA!" the president wrote. One of the most controversial would give "rigorous firearms training" to some teachers to protect students - an idea that would struggle mightily to pass. They launched a news conference the very next day on Capitol Hill to unveil their gun-control wish list, hoping to build on the momentum the president had just given them.
