Donald Trump Opposes Gun Control
President Donald Trump has effectively blown proposed gun control laws out of the water with a statement that says the new HR 8 laws would be incompatible with the Second Amendment.
God bless you Donald. You just keep being you…
The new laws could have imposed a 20-day waiting period on firearms sales and stringent new checks could, in the end, effectively outlaw private gun sales.
These laws have been shuffled through the house with bipartisan support. They still have to get past the Senate and then that would get passed on to the President. But he has already let them know they are wasting their time.
“The Administration opposes H.R. 8 because it would impose burdensome requirements on certain firearm transactions,” said a White House Statement. “H.R. 8 would require that certain transfers, loans, gifts, and sales of firearms be processed by a federally licensed importer, manufacturer, or dealer of firearms.
“H.R. 8 would therefore impose permanent record-keeping requirements and limitless fees on these everyday transactions. H.R. 8 contains very narrow exemptions from these requirements, and these exemptions would not sufficiently protect the Second Amendment right of individuals to keep and bear arms.”
So basically forget it Lefties, it isn’t going to happen. That’s the message we hear from the White House right now and it’s music to our ears. Donald Trump is clearly pro Second Amendment and always has been. It’s good to see he’s prepared to back up the talk and face down new gun control legislation.
Gun control laws are going to be thrown around Left and right, well mostly Left, in the years to come. It’s good to see a President swatting them back over the fence before they get too much momentum.
