President Trump has said things in recent days that gave his supporters pause because the visual of him meeting with gun-grabber Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) made it look like he was giving away the store on the Second Amendment. The President and the National Rifle Association (NRA) want you to know that it's not like that.
Chris Cox, a top man at the NRA dined at the White House on Thursday. The tweet signals that any pending legislation satisfies the concerns the NRA has with maintaining the sanctity of the Second Amendment. The President echoed Cox's sentiments on Twitter.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders clarified the President's remarks to the Daily Caller, which have been subject to misinterpretation in recent days. "On universal background checks, Sanders said “universal means something different to a lot of people. He certainly wants to focus and improve on the background check system.”
Sanders also clarified Trump’s position on raising the minimum age saying “conceptually, he still supports raising the age to 21. But he also knows there’s not a lot of broad support for that. But that’s something he would support. I think he thinks it would probably have more potential in the states than it would at the federal level”. The President has reaffirmed his commitment to the Second Amendment several times in the last week, as conservatives wait to see what reforms will fly, and which ones will not.
