President Donald Trump predicted the National Rifle Association will sign on to legislation he says will come together “very soon” to tighten gun laws -- although the group’s national spokesman suggested little or no change in its positions.

The White House wants to address increased background checks on firearms purchases, limits on gun ownership by the mentally ill and “perhaps” raising the minimum age for more sales to age 21, the president has said.
