This may not have been what the NRA had in mind when they endorsed Donald Trump last month in Louisville. “Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump says he will be meeting with the National Rifle Association to discuss ways to block people on terrorism watch lists or no fly lists from buying guns. Trump announced the meeting via a tweet Wednesday, without providing any details on the time or place.”
Will they also discuss the importance of due process or the fact that individuals could be deprived of their civil rights by being placed on a secret list by unaccountable bureaucrats? We’d guess the NRA will be raising those topics. We hope.
Trump’s famous for his deal-making. But as Johannes wrote not long ago, that may not necessarily be a good thing for those who value their gun rights. Stay tuned.
