Trump to Senators: 'You're Afraid of the NRA'

Republican Senator Rand Paul opposes tightening gun laws on constitutional grounds

I just have to say it.

In 2013, the NRA said the Toomey-Manchin bill would "not prevent the next shooting" and would not "solve violent crime". "They're on our side", he said.

"What's changed is the horrific accumulation of these massacres". I think that maybe that bill will someday pass, but it should pass as a separate bill.

A memorial outside the high school. "Those are having an effect".

Many legislators have indeed accepted large donations from the NRA over the years, including Florida Sen. Trump has also proposed arming certain education officials, a proposal that has been panned by teachers and education organizations.

"The reason that nothing's gotten done here is because the gun lobby has had a veto power over any legislation that comes before Congress", Murphy said, pressing Trump to use the power of his office on the issue". I am a minister and psychologist who has counseled troubled youth, and when they walk into a school, movie theater or other public place with their spare magazines and AR-15's, their new motto is "teachers first".

In brief remarks before dinner beneath dimmed lights in the State Dining Room, Trump said the governors are "very, very special people". "Take the guns first, go through due process second".

"No. 1, you can take the guns away from people you can judge easily are mentally ill", he said.

Concealed-carry reciprocity legislation would potentially negate the possibility of someone from a generally gun-friendly state like Pennsylvania having trouble when traveling into stricter neighboring states like NY and New Jersey.

He is considering a rise in the legal age to buy a rife - from 18 to 21 - and has suggested prohibiting the sales of bump stocks, which turn rifles into automatic-style weapons. He is telling the president that "it's going to have to be you who brings the Republicans to the table on this".

The NRA paid more than $11 million in support of Trump during the 2016 presidential run.

"The NRA downgraded Senator Toomey's rating and refused to back him for re-election", Kelly said.

The White House understands that the matter should be dealt as a group which is why the Senate would need the consent of every senator to quickly schedule gun control votes.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, the No. 2 in Republican leadership, is among those pushing for an open amendment process. "I remain skeptical. I'm not convinced the benefits outweigh the costs", he said. You can't buy a handgun at 18, 19 or 20.

Toomey defended the discrepancy, saying handguns are more commonly used in crimes. "I think they're there". We can't keep restricting-we can't keep... we have to do what is right.' When it comes to mental health and other issues, I said, we have to do what is right.
