Trump Gets it Mostly Right on Guns

Donald Trump is a master media manipulator. I say that in the best possible way. Republicans attacked the President's proposal of making the minimum age to purchase a firearm 21 as unconstitutional. Liberals, who would just as soon raise the minimum age to 81 were in a state of fluster over whether to back the President on what could be seen as a major concession from the White House to the gun control lobby.

The jokes on both of them.

Trump took to Twitter on Monday with a new message on guns:

The President's message is responsible and protects States' Rights. He will also defer to the experts in the DeVos commission to make the best decision for the students in our public education system.

There are many differing positions on this issue as you can see on this video from earlier today on MSNBC:

On Sunday, the White House expressed their intention help states pay for gun training for teachers and called for the improvement of our background check system as part of a new plan to prevent another school shooting.

"Today we are announcing meaningful actions, steps that can be taken right away to help protect students," said Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

Some will still argue that a Bump Stocks ban is unnecessary. I happen to agree with that argument, but for now, the issue of "Gun Free Zones" that have made our children sitting targets for would be mass murderers is being addressed and teachers will soon be provided with the training necessary to limit the casualties in the event of another school shooting.

Thank You President Trump.

  1. Re previous replies, you never respond. Leave it to you in your hyper-conservative non-sensical way to throw in a lame criticism on how liberals would respond. Most liberals are gun-supporters and are quite reasonable folk just like their are among conservatives. Your comment makes you come off as a jerk, typical conservative that really the impression you want to make of yourself in the digital world?? It's good that you stop by Thom Hartmann's program to have a discussion but you need to listen more
