Im not optimistic about his support for 2A, I never have been and have always seen him as a threat to our gun rights. That being said, based only what Ive seen in this article Im not going to worry quite yet.
We get the government we deserve.
Normally I would think nothing will come of Trump’s words in this case, but things have changed. SG Barr has demonstrated that he has an anti gun agenda. The ARF chief likes gun controls. Someone is pushing DJT toward gun control. I think it is Barr. Problem is that Barr is his best defender in warding off an Impeachment inquiry. Barr can slow IS Attorney investigations in NY, and one has just Ben ended to the surprise of many observers. DJT is not going to alienate Barr, and Barr is not our friend. Put you helmets on because there is a high likelihood that we will be getting incoming soon. If it comes it will be redirected fire from friendlies. Friendly fire is an accident. Redirected friendly fire is intentional. I hope not, but this could get bad.,
Learned my lesson over the past couple of elections. I am stocking up on primers, powder, and all the other stuff I know will be needed when the next artificial shortages come along.
Those of you who don't roll your own ammo would do well to purchase a couple of boxes every payday before the shelves are empty again for the foreseeable future. Or you can rely on your friendly neighborhood hoarder to sell you a few here and there at triple the usual prices.
I can't be the only person here who remembers .22LR going from $15 per brick to $60, or 9mm range ammo going from $7-8 to $25-30, or primers from $20 per thousand to $50 or more.
Come to think about it, we have a few thousand squandered in certificates of deposit earning ZERO POINT NOTHING, so maybe I'll start buying out WalMart's ammo shelves now while there are still a few selections available. I may not be popular next year but I'm pretty sure I'll have lunch money and beer money when the ammo supply goes away again for a few months or more.
It will never happen. Allegedly, the NRA “owns” Congress. They are not even in the top 50 of special interests buying Congress critters. Of the top 50 (2016) Pharmaceutical Research & Manufacturers of America is number 5 in reported money spent.
I have been saying this for years. Psyche drugs are one of the common denominators in almost all mass shootings in the US. These were introduced into the medical arsenal of tricks back in the 60's. Any time I have posted a video documentary about this on Facebook, it conveniently disappears. The big drug companies make billions and just consider the side effects of these drugs collateral damage. And all the politicians just blame the guns.

Looks like it's going to be a request for stronger background checks. Tweeted 4 minutes ago.

The entire Tweet from DJT:
“We cannot let those killed in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, die in vain. Likewise for those so seriously wounded. We can never forget them, and those many who came before them. Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks, perhaps marrying...this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. We must have something good, if not GREAT, come out of these two tragic events!’

4 mass shootings under Trump. 24 under Obama. But it's Trumps fault.
Just read that the President will make remarks about gun control at 10 AM this morning. He tweeted about supporting background checks so that is likely to be spoken too. I am wondering if that will be it, or if Barr has provided him with more possible actions. I will be tuning into C-SPAN at 10 to catch the announcement.
Stronger background checks, restrictions on magazines and semi-auto rifles, taxes on ammo, licenses to purchase firearms, red flag laws, none of these things are going to have an iota of impact on mass shootings. But since Ohio is toying with the idea of a red flag law, this shooting could be the tipping point to get it passed, whether the shooter would have been a candidate or not. For some people facts matter much less than feelings when it comes to gun restrictions.

Stronger background checks combined with immigration reform.

At least he blamed the perps, not the tools. We shall see were it goes from here.
