Before President Trump took office, The People of the Gun were giddy at the prospect of gun rights restoration. At the very least, we expected suppressors to be removed from the National Firearms Act, so they could be purchased with a simple background check at an FFL. Nope. All we get in that regard . . .
is some additional funding for the notoriously some might say infamously anti-gun rights ATF to process suppressor applications more quickly. National reciprocity? Fuhgeddaboutit.
In fact, President Trump (and the NRA) supports new gun regulation: “fixing NICs” and so-called Extreme Risk Protection Orders — a California-born “innovation” that puts Americans’ right to due process and their right to keep and bear arms at risk.
Not to mention directing the Department of Justice to find a way to ban bump fire stocks — a regulation that may open the door to restrictions on other gun parts and accessories and, eventually, certain types of firearms.
On the positive side, President Trump wants the DOJ to help train armed teachers. And he still isn’t Hillary Clinton. Is that enough to maintain your support for President Trump, assuming he had it before?
