Typical Donald Trump….
One minute he’s FOR going after the NRA after something occurs….
He’s changed his mind after someone got him ina room and spoken to him….
President Donald Trump on Friday declared that gun owners’ rights are “under siege,” pledging that his administration will work to protect them in an address at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention.
“Thanks to your activism and dedication, you have an administration fighting to protect your Second Amendment, and we will protect your Second Amendment,” Trump told a raucous crowd of NRA members in Dallas, Texas. “Your Second Amendment rights are under siege, but they will never, ever be under siege as long as I’m your president.”
Trump lauded efforts by the organization’s members and leaders to shield gun owners, while again plugging support for some of his most controversial proposals aimed at addressing mass shootings in schools.
“We strongly believe in allowing highly trained teachers to carry concealed weapons, if they’re highly trained,” he said. “And we want highly trained security guards.”
The remarks came just over two months after the president expressed a willingness to “fight” the National Rifle Association to curb gun violence in response to the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
In the aftermath of the attack — which left 17 dead and numerous others injured — the president floated support for a number of measures intended to boost school safety. They included arming teachers, strengthening background checks, raising the age for certain gun purchases, banning the bump stock gun accessory and reopening mental institutions….
Any movement on gun control has come on the state and city level….
Not the Feds…..
