Trump Backs Down – Endorses Democrat’s Gun Control Law


It was either political genius, or a move that could severely cost President Trump in the 2020 election.

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced that Trump had decided to back a bipartisan bill to bolster criminal background checks of those trying to buy guns.

Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) first put forward their legislation back in November of last year, right after the Texas church shooting.

Their bill aims to “fix” the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), and is being called the “most significant gun law” since universal background checks were proposed in response to the Sandy Hook school shooting.

So, what does that mean for law-abiding American gun-owners?

Well, nothing really. If you’re a law-abiding citizen, you can still purchase a gun.

Of course, while these bills look helpful, they won’t be really. Most criminals who use guns in violent crimes did not obtain those weapons legally to begin with. They couldn’t care less what restrictions Congress put on gun ownership.
