NRA Calls Trump's Gun Proposals 'Bad Policy'

"Don't worry about the NRA". "I will sign it", Trump said in a freewheeling hour-long discussion at the White House with a group of lawmakers. Trump told them to beef it up to raise the age limit for purchasing powerful firearms.

Trump often acknowledges that it's hard to pass any legislation in Congress, let alone laws to curb gun rights. It was not clear whether he would continue to push for swift and significant changes to gun laws, when confronted with the inevitable resistance from his party. He said that if someone had a gun in the club the night 49 people were killed, "It wouldn't have happened".

Lucas also addressed the resignation of Trump's communications director Hope Hicks, who quit just a day after she had spent nine hours testifying before the House intelligence committee's Russian Federation investigation. But in the wake of the latest mass school shooting in Florida, he's been at least giving lip service to mild gun control measures that Democrats generally back and the NRA - and its allies such as Scalise - don't. "We need a serious and meaningful solution that addresses crime in cities like Chicago, addresses mental health deficiencies, while at the same time protecting the rights of those of us who are not a danger to anyone". "If not, the status quo will largely remain", said Doug Heye, a veteran Republican operative and former Republican National Committee communications director. "It might not be everything, it might not be an assault weapon ban, but practically anything short of that is what we would expect". "Mr. President, it's going to have to be you that brings the Republicans to the table on this", said Sen. "The White House has to send a proposal to Congress".

With more Republicans expressing skepticism this week about additional restrictions on guns, Trump seems to be heading toward a similar backtrack.

He used the 2016 Pulse Nightclub shooting that left 49 people dead as reasoning for allowing some people on school campuses to carry firearms.

Hope Hicks, the most influential White House aide you may not know about, will leave Trump's administration in the upcoming weeks or months. The bill bolsters background checks for online and gun show sales.

Trump said he thinks the proposed solution should be "really strong on background checks", but ideas floated ran the gamut and darted across the ideological spectrum.

The Florida school shooting rekindled a sharp debate over guns in a nation deeply divided over how to balance gun rights and safety, with a call for legislation to curb gun-related violence driven by the students who survived the February massacre. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), a top gun control advocate, to discuss the matter on Wednesday. Of the 57 per cent of adults who say the nation's leader is a racist, 8 in 10 are black, three-quarters are Hispanic and nearly half are white. Among other provisions, it would mandate criminal background checks on all sales, including private transactions at gun shows and via the internet. "I'm with you, but let it be a separate bill", he told Scalise, who was seriously wounded by a gunman targeting a GOP congressional baseball team practice last summer. Democrats in Congress have introduced two proposals to ban them, but have gained no support from Republicans, who control the legislature.

In a remarkable meeting, the president veered wildly from the N.R.A. playbook in front of giddy Democrats and stone-faced Republicans.

Wednesday's move takes them out of its 35 Field & Stream outlets as well, Stack said, adding the measure would be permanent. "President Trump must follow through on his commitment today to save American steel jobs and stop Chinese steel overcapacity from continuing to infect global markets", Brown said in a statement.
