It comes after criticism of the Federal Bureau of Investigation over its handling of a warning about Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old suspected of killing 17 at a Florida high school last week.

"We want assault rifles off the market", student Cameron Kasky said.

"Background checks are something that the president is supportive of making more efficient and looking at better ways to improve that process", Sanders said.

The Las Vegas gunman had used a bump stock to kill 58 people at a country music festival past year.

Dozens of young people and their families have taken their demands for stricter gun control laws to the White House, less than a week after a school shooting killed 17 people in the USA state of Florida.

Tightening gun laws would mark a change in course for Trump, who has championed gun rights.

The FBI has acknowledged it failed to act on a tip warning that the suspect, Nikolas Cruz, possessed a gun and the desire to kill.

"Despite the increasing number of shootings, despite the increasing deaths, it is utterly wonderful that we are standing here saying, 'Please make sure our [gun] background system of checks works, ' " Schumer said.

The legislation aims to put more pressure on federal agencies to report relevant information to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System and also includes measures to reward states that comply with the system through federal grants.

Mr Cornyn and Mr Murphy were among a bipartisan group of politicians who supported the background check bill introduced in November after a church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, that left 26 people dead.

At a rally Saturday in Fort Lauderdale, student Emma Gonzalez called out the president, the National Rifle Association and Congress for failing to enact common sense gun-control legislation.

The White House on Tuesday attempted to walk back Trump's tweet, denying that Trump was blaming the Russian Federation investigation for the shooting. Students and others still plan to march on the nation's capital March 24.

Mr Trump spent the weekend at his estate in South Florida, only an hour's drive from the school where the deadly shooting took place.

"Every day when I say "bye" to my parents, I do acknowledge the fact that I could never see my parents again".
