    Donald Trump Promises Action After Weekend Shootings in Ohio and Texas

    This sounds like very bad news.

    President Donald Trump spoke out Sunday about the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, on Sunday, condemning the violence that occurred over the weekend and promising action.

    Sounds like he’s speaking politics-ese so far.

    I hope that's all he's doing. Barr is not a pro-2A AG and that is not going to help things along.

    I will be in a wait and see mode rather than going into full blown “the sky is falling” mode.

    Well, let’s be real about this. Watching CNN this morning, 1/3 of guests were giving facts about the shootings, and 2/3 were blaming them on Trump. If he tries some kind of harsh gun control measure in response, is that going to gain a single vote from those who hate him so deeply? And how many votes from his base would that cost him?

    I don’t think he’s that foolish.

    No. The question is will we bend over again?
    Unfortunately there are many gun owners who will still shop at Wal Mart even though they know Wal Mart partnered with Everytown for Gun Safety just because it is convenient and they can save a few bucks.

    I share in your optimism. The bump stock ban was simply a shot across the bow, IMO.

    Do you really think there is reasonable alternative? I don't think you'll get a civil war going over the stuff that is being proposed. You will get passive resistance, but that's about it. If we hold back our votes in 2020, things could get even worse, even faster.

    I think it's just a political reality that he and the legislature will have to take some action. Any elected official who doesn't get on board is going to be toast. What I'm hoping is that it is something benign, but I fear it may not be.

    They do need to look at mental health and prescription psychotropic drugs. That is the driver.
