President Donald Trump has made it clear that he wants to find a solution to reduce gun violence in America — but he’s not going to use the same misguided logic as Democrats.
The president spoke with reporters on Sunday about the recent string of mass shootings in America, and he admitted one fact that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want you to know: anti-gun laws will not and do not work.
Trump said he might be open to a version of “red flag” laws in an effort “to identify severely disturbed individuals and disrupt their plans before they strike.”
“This includes strong measures to keep weapons out of the hands of dangerous and deranged individuals, and substantial reforms to our nation’s broken mental health system,” Trump added.
Trump added: “Background checks — 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.”
Trump knows that if Republicans give an inch on gun control laws, Democrats will try to take a mile.
In fact, Pelosi has gotten so arrogant that she practically admitted that last week.
Pelosi announced that Democrats will try to take away a Constitutional right from Americans on Sept. 4.
When Congress comes back from recess, Pelosi is promising to hold votes on several anti-gun laws.
These laws, all of which aim to erode as much of the Second Amendment as possible, will likely pass given Democrats control the House.
Here are a few of the measures Democrats will be voting on next week:
- The “Keep Americans Safe Act,” which would ban any ammunition magazines over 10 rounds.
- The “Extreme Risk Protection Orders Act of 2019,” which would remove access to firearms from people who are deemed to be a danger to themselves or others.
- The “Disarm Hate Act,” which would prevent someone convicted of a misdemeanor hate crime from obtaining a firearm.
- The committee is also slated to take up a hearing on “military style assault weapons” later in the month.
While most Americans want to keep people safe, it’s important to note that these far-left laws would severely trample on the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms.
And, perhaps most importantly, there’s no evidence to suggest that any of these three pieces of legislation would actually reduce gun violence.
Perhaps Pelosi is pushing these radical bills because things have not been going her way lately.
After the three deadly shootings in Texas and Ohio in recent weeks, Pelosi has been trying to shame Trump into enforcing “red flag laws,” which allow courts to order law enforcement officers to seize guns from people they deem “unfit” to own a firearm.
Trump has not caved to the latest liberal attempt to erode the Second Amendment and disarm the public.
