    President Abandoning His Promise To Defend Second Amendment

    The debate over gun control continues, with President Trump again calling for stronger background checks.

    The President says it’s time for Congress to act—and also says he hopes the NRA will get on board.

    But the President and the nation’s gun lobby could be in for a tough fight ahead.

    President Trump on Friday was confident that some kind of gun reform is possible, even in the face of NRA resistance.

    “We have tremendous support for really common sense, sensible, important background checks. I think we can get something really good done,” said President Trump.

    He's living in la-la-land if thinks the 2A -- AS WRITTEN -- is not important to:

    1. The NRA

    2. The overwhelming majority of all of us deplorables.

    At least in the House, look forward to passage of the proposed background checks, etc. My biggest fear is that enough Republican Senators will switch and support the House bill. Remember, the Republicans only hold a slim majority. Therefore, assuming for a second that it DOES pass both houses, Trump has already committed to signing it into law.

    Now fast forward a year as we approach the 2020 elections. Will enough MAGA supporters abandon voting for Trump - so much so that one of the pathetic Dems wins the White House? IMO that would be a catastrophe much worse than even Obama. Like it or not, we have ALWAYS had to choose between the lesser of two evils.

    Washington is growing on/in him. He's a politician now.

    "Common sense" and 'government' are two diametrically opposed concepts. Just like east and west, never the twain shall meet.

    If/when Trump supports gun control . . . it won't matter, as we will have already lost significantly.
    "Every person’s life is theirs by right. An individual’s life can and must belong only to himself, not to any society or community, or he is then but a slave. No one can deny another person their right to their life, nor seize by force what is produced by someone else, because that is stealing their means to sustain their life. It is treason against mankind to hold a knife to a man’s throat and dictate how he must live his life."
