Trump pushes for More Gun Regulations

Filed under: Politics,Second Amendment — DRJ @ 11:00 am



[Headlines from DRJ]

Trump in talks with key senators on gun control legislation:

Meetings between White House officials, Senate aides appear to signal the most substantive talks the Trump administration has had to date on gun control policy.

Trump Advisors Wary As President Considers Gun Control Proposals:

Campaign advisers asked White House officials for at least a week to gauge how various options—including background checks and taking no action—would fare among the president’s base of supporters before the administration decides on an official course of action, a person close to the White House said.

Who can save gun control opponents from Trump’s desire to reach across the aisle? Only Mitch McConnell.

(What happened to yesterday’s Trump who warned Republicans to never help Democrats?)

  1. This is a line he must not cross. I will not support unconstitutional measures to limit our God given rights.

  2. … a week to gauge how various options—including background checks and taking no action—would fare among the president’s base of supporters

    To conduct a poll, in other words.

  3. C’mon Donald. Sell out your base. They’ll love you anyway. Just say something nasty about Mexicans, and they’ll swoon and forgive you. The NRA? They are too busy buying their leaders fancy cars and houses to notice.

    It’s so easy, Mr. President. Make your base provetheir love…And face it, you don’t like that Constitution much anyway. It’s just so easy to sell out. Remember how it was with Vlad, and it will be so easy…

  4. Trump will be baseless if he screws the pooch on the 2 Amendment.

  5. mg, I’m not so sure about that. So far, they’ve been remarkably willing to believe that Trump Knows Best on everything.

  6. Don’t worry comrades we’ll just trot out that ever so useful ‘binary choice’.

    Have at it …

  7. IF only we’d elected the Never-trumper heroine “Hillary” this would never have happened. No one supported gun rights more than her. And with a possible 6-3 Kagan-run SCOTUS you can be sure the 2nd Admendment was perfectly safe. Darn that Trump.

  8. Never Trumper 2016 – who cares who wins. Hillary = Trump.
    Never Trumper 2019 – Trump is betraying us on Gun rights!

  9. Never Trumper 2016 – who cares who wins. Hillary = Trump.
    Never Trumper 2019 – Trump is betraying us on Gun rights!

  10. All about the 2nd for this low life. Trump has did nothing to erase the debt, which is next on my why I vote list.

  11. #7, #8, #9 — “but Hillary” is a very stale argument for why Trump Must Not Be Criticized, or called out on betrayals.

    And for the umpteenth time, criticizing Trump is not proof of favoring Hillary Clinton.

    But thanks for demonstrating the point that Trump fans will indeed find a way to justify anything he does.
