President Trump calls for tighter gun control in the wake of terrorist attacks

US President proposition to link background checks with immigration reform has been compared to 1930s Nazi Germany by Democrats. The President did not directly address accusations that his controversial comments regarding illegal immigration have contributed to a rise in hate crimes in the US but said on Monday that Americans must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy.

"we need gun control that wouldn't have stopped this or pretty much any other shooter from getting their weapons" gets me every time.

Shall not be infringed. Trump already fucked up once with the bump stock ban (see how well it stopped more shootings?). Gun control won’t solve anything and will only result in the rights of US citizens being eroded away.

The "Centrist" source seems to be more of a Left leaning source. Just my opinion.

This is generally speaking a bad idea. He may think that this will win him support from the other side, but their mind was already made up about Trump and trading our basic rights for political uptick is both wrong and ineffective. This is a horrible knee jerk reaction. There is no excuse for the government's attempts to limit natural human rights that are not granted by them only recognized. The government has no authority over our basic rights. If we want civil war this is how you get there, chipping away at the our rights like this and increasing the tyrannical government's power. The founders predicted this and did all they could to stop the government, but we foolishly continue to give them more and more freedom in exchange for security. Soon we will have neither.

I've noticed that the msm only wants to focus on the El Paso gunman. Guess that's because in Ohio the gunman was a socialist and in my opinion probably was retaliation! Mass shootings happen every weekend in major cities! Bad guys are going to get weapons regardless! Infringing on law abiding citizens is NOT the solution!

Actually it's protected by the first amendment. Terrorism has no place.

The Ohio shooter is directly linked to Elizabeth Warren why is no one blaming her. I’m sick of republicans not pointing fingers but every time something happens Democrat’s claim it’s Trumps fault.

Honestly, I am okay with it if we reduce border crossing with a wall. If we don't do something about illegal border crossing there won't be a country anymore.

Trump is once again a few steps ahead. Here he can pass immigration reform begged for by the border states by linking bills with something the dems are always asking for. No matter how weak his reform to background checks are, the dems will never vote against it. The firearms regulation will be largely unaltered, whilst the immigration reform will be sweeping. This basically erodes even further the dems 2020 platform... What can they campaign on if Trump is already enacting their entire manifesto in a sensible manner?

A drawback to background checks and licensing is the criteria for rejection. Maybe “extreme political views” or “hate speech” convictions down the road.
