    TRUMP Nixes "Assault Weapons" Ban

    President Donald Trump dismissed legislation to ban assault rifles as politically unfeasible on Wednesday as he prepared to visit the sites of two deadly mass shootings

    As he left the White House, Trump said he wanted to strengthen background checks for gun purchases and make sure mentally ill people did not carry guns.

    He predicted congressional support for those two measures but not for banning assault rifles. I guess time will tell.

    I don't have much hope. eventually we will hit an assault weapons ban and it will have no significant effect on these sorts of murders. It will grind our hobby to a halt.

    The left wants to blame inanimate objects instead of mentally ill individuals and their extremist ideologies.
    The right will never admit that we need a publicly funded mental health service so people can get help before they think murder is a solution.

    We are therefore doomed to live in a world where the the sources of problems and their solutions are ignored...

    Well................Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm lets say they do. Most likely it will have zero effect on class 3 stuff. So Is it worth $200.00 a rifle to keep them? Form 1 sbr. There is no time limit on "when " you get around to cutting it down. Just a idea.

    I thought he said "I'm certainly going to bring it up before lawmakers" when asked about AWB.

    It sounds like Trump is just trying to give a politically correct answer. I still don't trust him with 2A laws either, time will tell.

    Hammer local reps with emails and calls. Nationwide bullshit is a year out. Watch the local mongrels...they're the mangy ones that hump the unwary, eat barf and roll around in dead things. Also poop in your lawn because fuck your shoes.

    I can't help but think he's manipulating the polls with things like this. Something happens like a "mass shooting" and he makes hard hitting statements indicating they may have to clamp down with heavy restrictions and bans. Then they watch the polls and media traffic. Once things start swinging too far out of their favor he comes back with more reasonable and moderate measures. Then the polls spike and his overall popularity sharply climbs.

    I have nothing concrete to cite or back this theory. I've just noticed this chain of events kind of repeats itself whenever a multiple homicide makes the news.

    Ohio Congressman Mike Turner, a Republican, wants an assault weapon ban. His daughter was in the Oregon District on Sunday. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, another Republican, is trying to get a red flag law passed and wants government to monitor social media for threats. More RINOs wanting more gun control.

    The Dayton shooter used an AR pistol with a brace. Dayton Police Chief called it problematic. Don't tell Trump. He will want to ban it like he did to bump stocks.
