Trump to NRA boss: Universal background checks are dead


“THE FIVE.”>>BEARS ARE SMART. WELCOME TO WASHINGTON, AND BRET BAIER. NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION SAYS PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS TOLD THE TOP OFFICIAL UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR POTENTIAL GUN PURCHASERS ARE OFF THE TABLE. THAT NEWS COMING SHORTLY AFTER THE PRESIDENT HELD COURT ON A WIDE ARRAY OF TOPICS, INCLUDING GUN CONTROL. CHIEF WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT JOHN ROBERTS WAS AT THE IMPROMPTU PRESS CONFERENCE.>>ALMOST A FULL BLOWN PRESS CONFERENCE. WE WERE IN THE OVAL OFFICE FOR ABOUT HALF AN HOUR. ONE OF THE QUESTIONS THAT I HAVE FOR THE PRESIDENT, HE SEEMED TO BACK OFF ON HIS EARLIER SUPPORT FOLLOWING THE EL PASO AND DAYTON SHOOTINGS FOR ENHANCED BACKGROUND CHECKS, PERHAPS NOT UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS BUT AT LEAST CLOSINGS AND LOOPHOLES. THE PRESIDENT LEAVING BEDMINSTER, NEW JERSEY, OVER THE WEEKEND, APPEARED TO BACK OFF ON THAT A LITTLE BIT AND NOW WE HAVE LEARNED FROM NRA SOURCES THAT THE PRESIDENT CALLED WAYNE LaPIERRE THIS AFTERNOON AND TOLD HIM THAT UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS ARE OFF THE TABLE. WITHOUT MENTIONING BACKGROUND CHECKS, WAYNE LaPIERRE TWEETED “I SPOKE TO THE PRESIDENT TODAY,

  1. We already do them. Who has bought a gun with no background check? I served over two decades in the service and have ALWAYS done one on every purchase! Where are they buying guns where there is no check? Family? Some dude down the street. Those are probably illegal guns and laws ain't for illegal guns those are already illegal. I have a hard time understanding in a country with over 20,000 gun laws combined in all the states how we need more gun laws. We need more CRAZY people help.

  2. Of course he obeys his largest donor….OF COURSE HE DOES….it's all about the money and anyone that can't see the Trump pattern of 40 years is blind or stupid.

  3. Fock drump and also Brett … clear cut indications that our illegitimate president values nra funding over the lives of Americans … Fock trump Fock the nra and Fock Fox News reprobates … this is NOT a credible second amendment issue … our forefathers didn’t fathom people killing rapid fire armament … if we just wrote the Constitution in 2019 our forefathers who had honor a God fearing mindset and an intellect that stands significantly above drump and his freakatard nra backers and also Fox News would make assault people killing weapons illegal

  4. Most people don't realize, including these two idiots Trump and Pierre, that second amendment has nothing to do with gun owner rights. It's not about Assault rifles, size of magazines or background checks. The second amendment is the authorization of common civilians to shoot government employees. That's all it is.

  5. Why is it bad to take guns away from felons and the mentally ill? Can someone explain so I have a better understanding?

  6. Thank you president Trump! Finally your coming around to the idea that their is no America without the 2nd amendment. I know alot of the political threats are meant to motivate the market gun industry but eventually it will fall into the hands of the wrong people and they will try and force it. I believe it's time that Washington is made to recognize this countries constitution as their Oath for any and every office, that it can not be changed or threatened ever again under penalty of not only losing your trusted position but also imprisonment. This is what our country was built around not eastern philosophy or Socialist communist ideology.

  7. It's going to take more then that to make up for the Traitorous actions and 2nd Amendment atrocities that he has been flying around or Constitution.

  8. I love how much of a tough guy Trump is. Says he wants background checks, NRA talks to him, immediately promises not to institute background checks. That's the strong sort of figure he projects at all times right there.

  9. So to all of the supporters of the 2nd amendment-what are your proposals to help end the violence? It is getting out of hand.

  10. Didn't take the gutless coward very long to fall in line with the NRA… As if we expected any less from this towering sack of jelly…

  11. I’m massively against all guns. Just look at the numbers. However these red flag laws are strange. I fear we may never have guns completely gone but my god how can we not pass stronger background checks? If someone can tell me why having stronger background checks are bad tell me. It blows my mind

  12. Stopping mass killings has absolutely nothing to do with gun control. All parents know when they have a freak kid. They just need to be able to let the world know, and the world needs to listen.

  13. Trump was on tv saying onething and turn around in the same breath and say something else difference to the NRA leader all in the same day and you swamp hick who watch Fox News trust him ?.

  14. Maybe parents and teachers should have a list together of kids who need mental inspections before they are allowed to purchase firearms. Just seems logical.

  15. I’m a 2nd amendment supporter and gun owner. I think at the minimum those that purchase an AR-15 style rifle should have an extensive background check. Americans have the right to purchase these firearms but the rest of Americans have the right to know that an owner of this weapon is responsible and has no history of mental illness, no arrest history, and interviews with family, friends and coworkers that have positive results. You pass that you get your gun.

  16. President Trump is a strong Second Amendment supporter LOL is that why Donald Trump has done more damage to the Second Amendment than Barack Obama did in 8 years lol but Donald is this great 2nd Amendment supporter LOL. Donald knows he needs us to vote for him one more time and then he will go after guns like he already does. I voted for him in 2016 and I will not vote for him in 2020. He fooled me once but he will not do it again

  17. The only law that will help or stop or curtail any of the mass shootings is it law enforcement has the juvenile records of any juvenile that is involved in violence if they are violent children they should not be given the right to become a violent adult with a gun open up violent juvenile records to all law enforcement that will curtail the shootings nothing else that they have proposed will

  18. 90% of the public supports universal background checks but the Republican Party takes orders from the NRA. Same with global warming. Most people favor restrictions on pollution but the Republican Party takes orders from the oil industry.

  19. Background checks are dead or off the table?
    Off the table is just got cut off? Who plucked from the tables? The table lamps got short circuited and burnedπŸ€”

  20. By far the most gun related deaths and mass shootings in the world and you can't even pass a background check law. The USA is full of morons!! Just look at the idiot you have in the White House! Go ahead and shoot yourselves, the rest of the world is beyond caring.

  21. Thank you president trump and the NRA I will be sending my dues in with a little extra to show my appreciation to the oldest civil rights organization in America NRA.

  22. He needs to press Wayne LaPierre to resign. His lavish spending of NRA members money is the epitome of SWAMPY POLITICS.

  23. Gun control: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it 😏 Any other form of gun control is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. I obey the Supreme Law of the Land.

  24. Why are white people so terrified they need all these guns? Total pussies. Its genetic. They can't even win a war against 2 countries with no military capability. And they still call themselves the greatest military in the world with a straight face.

    Pussies

  25. Americans and their guns. Crazy! They all go quoting second amendment rights but they were written at a time when angry natives, bears, wolves and other bad tempered animals were around every corner. The only aggressive creatures in the US now are Antifa lol

  26. We already have background checks for gun purchases. I am an FFL dealer and we never sell ANY gun without a background check because IT IS ALREADY LAW !!!!!

  27. Lying scumbag CAVED to the NRA AGAIN….
    39% approved rating as +80% of people want stricter gun control…..
    REMOVE "THIS SWAMP Preaident IN 2020….

  28. Waaah, where going to build a wall, and Mexico, I mean you will pay for it. Waaah were going to get tough on Iran until they shoot down one of our drones, then just like in Vietnam, I'll tuck my tail between my legs and run. Waaah, the other politicians are afraid of the NRA not me, until I realized that the gun nuts are some of my biggest supporters. Once a wimp, always a wimp. Trump flip flops more then a fish out of water. And yet his followers believe everything this lying troll says. Clearly Trump supporters are too stupid to win a Darwin Award!

  29. OOPS ! Second mistake of the Trump presidency !
    This WILL cost you dearly, Mr.President. Guns DON'T belong in the hands of citizens.

  30. King Con Coward Trump caves and is owned by former rodent Wayne LaPierre… And is anyone really surprised? 90% of Americans favors stronger backround checks but this coward caves.

  31. Now we know for sure who the puppet really isΒ – not the head of the NRA, but the POTUS.Β  So the gun-show loophole stays, despite the fact that 80% of Americans disapprove of it.Β  Stick those ARs up your assholes, assholes.

  32. Trump is a pawn of the NRA….he will do their bidding no matter what the American People Want
    Both he and La Pierre have tons of innocent blood of school children , senior citizens , mothers , fathers , sons and daughters dripping off them.

  33. The second amendment state's the right of the people to own and bear arms shall not be infringed, meaning no one has the authority to in act laws restricting our right to own and bear arms gun control does nothing but make it harder for victims to shoot back

  34. Trump i know im not the sharpest knife in the drawer,but please,the little intelligence i do have
    don't INSULT ME!!

  35. 90% of REPUBLICANS support Universal background checks . LaPierre has all the dirt on the $30 Million Russian Oligarch dollars funneled thru NRA to Trump. That any of them think they can keep this hush hush is delusional. NRA is crumbling and it’s dirty little secrets will soon be out in the open

  36. TRUMP IS A "COWARD" AND AFRAID OF THE NRA ! WHAT A LYING TRAITOR ! πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

  37. Fox is just in it for the ratings. Hannity was all for ted cruze until he learned TRUMP WOULD WIN. LOOK AT SHEPARD SMITH. LOL

  38. If the democrats get their teeth in the universal background checks they will make them so expensive and hard to pass they will essentially end gun sales. The 2nd amendment was made for 2 reasons. 1) protect from foreign and domestic and 2) to prevent tyranny of the government….. exactly what the democrats are attempting.
