These people arent rational, they wont see it as "he is just trolling" the mere mention of background checks makes them crap their pants. NRA voters are like abortion voters...they are all in on one issue.

    Remember Trump has little margin for error. He has to hold every vote of the 33% or he is going to be in serious trouble. There is video of him saying it might be better to take guns away BEFORE people commit violent acts. If you dont think that is going to adversely effect him then you might be beyond help.

    Lets put it this way...the problem with the Dems is you need to pass the purity test right? If you arent Progressive enough the Bernie Bros hate you and if you arent centrist enough the Clintonistas dislike you. Well the GOP only has that problem on a few issues and #1 is guns. Any waffling on that issue is bad.
    Scott Brown is a great recent example of this.

    The only thing I can think is that he is setting congresss up to be the hero’s as far as preventing something bad from passing and it helps republicans keep/gain seats in the fall.

    You totally misspelled "Trump or Trump's family have the ability to profit from this."

    TRUMP: Do you have support for that, bipartisan support for what you’re saying?

    TOOMEY: We had 54 votes in 2013. Most of those 54 voters are still in the Senate.

    TRUMP: And not a lot of presidential backup?

    TOOMEY: President Obama did support it.

    TRUMP: But that was your problem.
    Sigh.

    You know, many years ago when Kaspersky was first getting touted as a great product, all I could think to myself was, "THere isn't a chance in hell I'm installing a Russian-made antivirus on any computer I own."

    I felt quite vindicated when it came out they were basically a front.

    This. I mentioned earlier that Trump can peacock and what everyone else is saying: gun law changes. And given the recent developments, none of it will pass. However (at least in his mind for sure) HE looks good. He tried to pass stuff that people want, but that darn government shut him down.

    That being said, his voters are furious, and it could (and should) show that in the next election (if he makes it that far).

    North White school district in Monon, IN. It's a rural district. Maybe 20 or so miles north of Lafayette. I guess police response time isn't the best, which is why it was approved in the first place.

    GA lawmakers take their punitive action against the states largest employer, only really hurting themselves.

    I don't buy it. He'll skate, just like he always does. Doesn't matter what's "on the record".

    WASHINGTON — The top lobbyist for the National Rifle Association claimed late Thursday that President Trump had retreated from his surprising support a day earlier for gun control measures after a meeting with N.R.A. officials and Vice President Mike Pence in the Oval Office.

    The lobbyist, Chris Cox, posted on Twitter just after 9 p.m. that he met with Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence, saying that “we all want safe schools, mental health reform and to keep guns away from dangerous people. POTUS & VPOTUS support the Second Amendment, support strong due process and don’t want gun control. #NRA #MAGA.”

    Mr. Trump tweeted about an hour later, “Good (Great) meeting in the Oval Office tonight with the NRA!”

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, declined to provide details about the previously unannounced meeting. A spokeswoman for the N.R.A.’s lobbying arm, which Mr. Cox leads, did not respond to requests for further comment.

    How many special interest groups can have a meeting with the president and vice president whenever they want?

    Also, how many special interest groups act as the official mouthpiece for the Office of the President stating what POTUS/VPOTUS "says" without having official White House correspondence first?

    The second article proved my point...Trump is already backing off because that stance was a death knell for him if he kept it.

    One wonders why he cares? He's not a politician. He can do whatever he wants. Yet, he's gone full derp conservative on everything. And, I mean, everything.

    REI stops sales of Vista (Camelbak, Giro, Bell, Bushnell, and a few others) over their stance on AR15s and a PAC that supports politicians who want to stop protecting public lands.
