Trump: Stronger Background Checks Wouldn’t Stop Mass Killers

He’s right

(Breitbart) While speaking to reporters Sunday morning President Trump said stronger background checks would not have stopped the mass public attacks our nation has witnessed over the past six or seven years.

Trump said, “I will say that for the most part, sadly if you look at the last four or five going back even five or six or seven years, for the most part, as strong as you make your background checks, they would not have stopped any of it.”

He made these comments the day after a man in the Midland-Odessa region of Texas drove around shooting people while sitting inside his vehicle. (snip)

NBC reports Trump saying the shooting incidents in the Midland-Odessa area do not change discussions about guns. Trump said, “We are in the process of dealing with Democrats and Republicans, and there’s a big package of things that’s going to be put before them by a lot of different people I’ve been speaking to a lot of senators, a lot of house members, Republicans, Democrats — this really hasn’t changed anything, we’re doing a package and we’ll see how it comes about.”

What the gun grabbers have been pushing are background checks being required for all purchases except transfers between family. This would include the very few that are private sales. Most purchases are made from a lawful gun shop, which do background checks. So, how will this help? The Democrats policies require gun registration. What would this stop? If the person is able to pass a background check, as it seems most of these nutjobs have done, what would that stop?

What needs to be done is make it easier for law enforcement to report information to the NCIS system, to be able to get the information into the system quicker, and to be able to verify the information quicker, so that the system is not abused. But, would that stop anything? We know almost nothing about the Texas nutter, except that he was fired from his job hours before, reportedly. So, if there were no red flags, how do you stop this?

Of course, the gun grabbers have ideas: grab bugs. They want to, of course, ban all assault rifles. Many are calling for banning those which are owned now. Former executive editor of the NY Times Howell Raines wants to revert to the laws of the 1960’s, and seems to be pushing the notion that only revolvers would be allowed, along with hunting rifles. You can do the same with a hunting rifle as an “AR-15”, as the gun grabbers call every rifle.

If you’re going on a rampage, you’re crazy. That tweet is viral, and featured at The Hill. It’s a shame he doesn’t offer policy proposals. But, those in the comments are advocating for bans and confiscation. As are plenty of Democrat politicians.

    trump is right. Nothing we will do will slow our mass shootings. Dead children, toddlers shot in the face, murdered innocent mail truck drivers, shot troopers, school drills, panic in malls and WalMarts, etc are small prices to pay for our freedom to have whatever firepower we think we need.

      As always, the bunny suit lies because that’s now what The God Emperor of the Cherry Blossom Throne said.

      Most of these clowns were known to the fuzz. They did, or could do, nothing because of decisions by the Warren Court.

      Start institutionalizing these people and execute the ones who are just immoral and we get rid of mass shootings.

      For that to happen, Notorious and the Wise Latina need to go to that Big Holding Tank in the Sky.

      Sorry.

    “if there were no red flags, how do you stop this?”

    A neighbor reported a month earlier that he had threatened her with a rifle, but the police didn’t follow up.

    • formwiz says:

      Same with all the others. The Lefties have made it impossible for the cops to do anything.

      Started when the courts gave criminals rights.

    • Kye says:

      So the neighbor gave what can be considered a red flag but the cops chose not to act. Whose fault is that? Threatening a person with a gun is a crime. Lock him up! But if the cops, courts and psychs don’t act it’s no reason to take my guns away.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        How about your 2A Cause Celebre, clearly mentally ill and threatening to kill Antifa members? Should the FBI have intervened as they did?

    After 28 years of liberal/prog Presidents America again has a Conservative President! LONG OVER DUE!?!@

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Don’t insult conservative Americans by comparing them to the lunatic trump.

      • formwiz says:

        The bunny suit now wants us to believe he speaks for Conservatives.

        Conservatives Lurrrvvvve The Donald. Conservatives hate the bunny suit.

        They have good sense.

        And Trump is so lunatic, he’s winning the war on the border, winning the war of the economy, winning the war on Communism, and winning the war on Lefties.

        Can’t wait till he gets to appoint a couple more SCUS Justices.
