NRA Suggests Trump May Retreat From Gun Control

Trump stuns Republicans in meeting on guns

"But he also knows there's not a lot of broad support for that", she said.

America's gun control debate has taken seemingly surprising turns in recent days, as President Donald Trump and other Republican Party leaders have signaled an openness to gun restrictions that are anathema to the powerful National Rifle Association.

This is the second time in as many weeks the Trump administration has mentioned video games in relation to gun violence. He alarmed some civil libertarians and gun-control opponents alike by suggesting, "Take the guns first; go through due process second".

Earlier this week corporate America starting to speak with their dollars as many large USA companies severed ties with the National Rifle Association. "The NRA is also going to protect due process for innocent Americans", Loesch said. "As a result, we have made a decision to place a hold on future orders of products that Vista sells through REI while we assess how Vista proceeds", the statement read.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with bipartisan members of the Congress at the Cabinet Room of the White House February 28, 2018 in Washington, DC.

"After many years, a Bill should emerge", Trump went on.

She reiterated the president's support for the Cornyn-Murphy bill that had the NRA's approval. When he asked if it included provision that would raise the age to buy all guns from 18 to 21, Toomey told him no, prompting one of the more remarkable exchanges of the hour-long meeting.

USA president also raises eyebrows by suggesting police should be able to confiscate firearms without a court order. "Amy and Diane and a lot of other people, they're never going to consider it. People may consider it but they're not going to consider this bill". He called for comprehensive gun control legislation that would extend background checks to weapons purchased at gun shows and on the internet. Republicans in Congress have repeatedly rejected such checks.

The source tried to walk back Trump's statement on Thursday, telling CNN that what the President meant to say was he wanted to create a process that would make it easier for a judge to weigh in on someone's ability to own guns on the front end of a dispute, rather than in the back end. You have a different president.

"I think they should have taken them away, whether they had the right or not", Trump said.

"I think this issue is being discussed in the wrong context", Leon told show hosts Brian Becker and John Kiriakou. Republicans have largely backed away from stricter gun limits, while Democrats emboldened by Trump's rhetoric are pushing for ambitious action, including expanded background checks and even a politically risky ban on assault weapons.
