Schumer, Pelosi send letter to Trump to take action on guns

Sen. Chuck Schumer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent President Trump a letter on Sunday urging him to expand background checks. Pointing to the mass shootings in August that claimed 51 lives, Pelosi and Schumer called on Trump, while saying he is ’uniquely positioned’ to answer the call of Americans for more gun restrictions.

Hell No! We don't need a nation set up like Chicago. We don't want to leave our vulnerable without defense like they are there. How about the laws they pass on the federal level reinforce our rights and strike down city, state, and county laws that infringe. That would finally help Americans!

Why does Trump need to do that? Isn't that exactly the job of Congress? So why aren't they taking care of this?

CRIMANALS DON'T OBEY LAWS including gun laws it's already illegal to kill anyone except babies as long as you don't use a gun to do it, you cannot legislate firearms out of the hands of bad people so why do want to do that to law abiding citizens? gungrabbersarestooopid

The laws that democrats are proposing wouldn’t have stopped any of the last mass shootings in this country. If we cave in to them now, they’ll keep stripping more and more of our rights away later when their laws have no effect on the problem.

Any time your opponents want you to pressure your allies to do something unpopular, you probably shouldn't do it. Let the Democrats die on this hill themselves, don't join them.

She does realize that the president doesn't write legislations, right? She does realize it's actually CONGRESS' job to do that, right? What the hell is she writing to Trump for?

If they really cared about background checks they’d notice we already go through a background check, through the Fed, ie universal.

We DO need to take actions on guns; national reciprocity for carry permits, end the NFA, and declare magazine capacity limits unconstitutional.

I don't think the goal here is to pass any particular law or anything of the sort... I think this a carefully designed instance of "critical mass". The leftists know that any attempt to take people's firearms will meet with a very blunt response, just the kind of repose that they can use to set the tinderbox call the USA alight.
