Gov. Wolf Joins President At White House For National Governors Association Gathering


%FO GOVERNOR WOLF WAS AT THE WHITE HOUSE TODAY. THE PRESIDENT INVITED ALL OF THE NATION’S GOVERNORS TO JOIN HIM. ONE OF THE HOTTEST ISSUES WAS HOW TO GUARANTEE STUDENT SAFETY IN THE SCHOOLS. POLITICAL EDITOR JON DELANO TALKED WITH THE GOVERNOR SHORTLY AFTER THE MEETING AND HAS MORE. Reporter: SAYING IT WAS TIME TOR ACTION, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP COURTED THE NATION’S GOVERNORS AND CONGRESS TO REPLACE WORDS WITH DEEDS. WHEN IT COMES TO MAKING SCHOOLS SAFE FOR CHILDREN. BUT WE’LL TURN OUR GRIEF INTO ACTION. WE HAVE TO HAVE ACTION. Reporter: THE PRESIDENT INVITED GOVERNORS INCLUDING GOVERNOR WOLF FOR A SERIES OF MEETINGS, ONE ON SCHOOL SAFETY IN THE WAKE OF PARKLAND, FLORIDA. PRESUMABLY USING AUTHORITY, SOME QUESTION HE HAS THE PRESIDENT DECLARED. BUMP STOCKS WE’RE WRITING THAT OUT. I’M DOING IT MYSELF. [APPLAUSE] Reporter: BUT OTHER MEASURES CLEARLY REQUIRE A LEGISLATIVE ACTION LIKE THE PRESIDENT’S PLAN TO ARM SOME SCHOOL TEACHERS. THAT BROUGHT AN OBJECTION FROM ONE GOVERNOR. SO I JUST SUGGEST WE NEED A LITTLE LESS TWEETING HERE, A LITTLE MORE LISTENING AND LET’S TAKE THAT OFF THE TABLE AND MOVE FORWARD I THINK THE GOVERNOR IS RIGHT. TEACHERS SHOULD NOT BE SEEN AS THE FRONT LINE OF DEFENSE. WE PAY THEM TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN. Reporter: I REACHED GOVERNOR WOLF SHORTLY AFTER THE MEETING AND HE WAS GENERALLY OPTIMISTIC AFTER HEARING THE PRESIDENT. THERE IS AN URGENCY HERE THAT I HAVEN’T SEEN BEFORE, BUT IT IS UP TO THE FEDS AND NOT THE STATE. UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS. THAT CAN ONLY BE DONE AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL BECAUSE A STATE CAN DO ANYTHING YOU WANT THERE AND IT IS THE NEIGHBORING STATE THAT DOESN’T HAVE BACKGROUND CHECKS YOU CAN SORT OF THE BRING A GUN ACROSS THE STATE BORDER AND YOU HAVE UNDONE ANY BACKGROUND CHECK. WOLF SAYS THAT ALSO APPLIES TO RAISING THE AGE FROM 18 TO 21 TO PURCHASE AN AR-15. I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW
