Trump Warns of Impasse With Dems on Gun Control

President Donald Trump signaled Monday that he may not reach an agreement with Democrats on stricter gun measures after weekend discussions with party leaders.

“The big questions are,” the president tweeted, “will they ‘move the goalposts’ and, is this just a ploy to TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY?

“I hope NOT on both counts,” Trump continued, “but I’ll be able to figure it out!”

The tweet also cited former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu’s comments from a Fox News interview: “Democrats would rather talk about gun control than get something done.”

Trump’s post comes after an 11-minute telephone conversation Sunday with top Democrats, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, CNN reports.

But the Democrats warned the president that any gun legislation that did not include universal background checks “will not get the job done,” Politico reported Monday, making it more difficult for negotiations between Trump and senators to succeed.

The stalemate continues to cloud President Trump’s ultimate position on the background-check issue, CNN reports.

“Even in private, Trump has not revealed a final position,” the cable network reports, citing “people familiar with the discussions.”

A bipartisan measure on background checks — sponsored by Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Pat Toomey, R-Pa. — is pending, while the House passed similar legislation in February.

  1. Causes of Mass Shootings. LIBERALS. God & Jesus expelled from schools 1963 caused destruction of morals and family values followed by violent TV & video games, fake news, social media, attacks on Christianity, excess legal & illegal immigration, multiculturalism, political correctness, excessive prescription and illegal drug use involved in every shooting. Since 1950 98% of mass shootings have occurred in liberal created gun free zones. NRA not responsible

  2. Gun control is the guise of background checks do not work and never will. Too many people have such illegal firearms and are n ot going to turn them in. Also, we have thousands of rapid firing weapons in the hands of people who do not follow such laws and never will. There is no firearms laws that will work. Going after people is the onlyu soltution but sadly lacks professional education to stop the use of such bad armament. Until trhat problem is solved, judges and police are not qualified to take away weapons. Professional education is still not up to par.

  3. I wonder if they are ready for the upheaval of what will come if they pass these stupid “laws”. They are not laws because they are not according to the 2nd Amendment. “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”! They seem to forget that part. Besides being illegal laws they will not work with criminals. Criminals get their guns through black market or steal them. They do not obey laws. You are only hurting the law abiding citizens with your so-called “laws” and do no good at all. I wonder if the people will march on Washington if you pass this “law”. We will probably not obey any “laws” that go against our Constitution because that is what we live by and die for. You people i congress are just temporary help. We will get a new batch this next election, you can count on it and they won’t be democrats!

  4. “Universal background checks” is the DEMOCOMMUNIST “buzzwords” for the implementation of a UNCONSTITUTIONAL GUN OWNERSHIP “REGISTRY” that will bring the GESTAPO to your door to confiscate your guns whenever they get the “URGE” to do so. MORE treachery from the corrupt DEMOCOMMUNISTS to attempt to disarm and enact complete control over Law-Abiding citizens to be used, abused, or “ELIMINATED” as they see fit. All one has to do is study past history to SEE what happens to Law-abiding gun-owning citizens when their only protection against a TREASONOUS, TYRANNICAL “government” is removed from their hands.
    THAT is what our FOUNDERS included the 2nd for…It has NOTHING to do with “hunting” or “target practice”.

    1. I could not agree with you more. All of this gun talk leads to me to refer to Hitler in the 30’s and 40’s as he the Nazi’s were stripping the citizens of Germany of their ability to defend themselves from tyrants such as Hitler and enabled Hitler to begin his final solution over the Jewish population in Europe.

  5. The pervert pampering Pat Toomey is not only a sissy but also a coward who is in many ways no different from the myrmidon Bob Casey.

  6. THE UNIVERAL BACK GROUND CHECKS IS THE KEY PART OF THE DEAL THAT OBAMA WORKED OUT WITH THE U.N. YEARS BACK . ( THEY WILL KNOW WHERE 90 %OF ALL GUNS ARE )WHEN OBAMA AND THE DNC GAVE THE U.N. THE AUTHORIES TO (TAKE OUR GUNS ) AND THE OTHER PART OF THERE MASTER PLAN IS (OPEN BORDERS ) . ALL OF THIS IS TO COMPLET THE DEAL WHEN OBAMA SOLD AMERICA AND THE DNC OUT THE BACK DOOR .AND THIS DEEP STATE (THING ) FROM WHAT I CAN SEE . THIS IS A DEMCO-RATE THING . PUT IN PLACE TO COVER THERE ASSES . ( OBAMA, BILL AND HILLARY CLINTON, THAT AG , AND THE REST . ) FITS TOGEATHER TO WELL TO BE ANT THING OUSE . ?? AND KEEP IN MIND IT WILL BE THE U.N. THAT COMES FOR YOU GUNS . OBAMA AND THE REST KNEW THAT OUR LAW AND ARMED SERVICES WOULD NOT DO THIS . SEE THIS RIGHT NOW FOR WHAT IT IS . AN OVER THROW OF THE U.S.A. HOPE THE REEL DEMCORATES CAN SEE THIS AND VOTE TRUMP . BECAUSE WITH 4 MORE YRS , HE WILL CLEAN THIS CRAP UP. DNC DONT VOTE FOR TRUMP TO WIN. VOTE TO SAVE AMERICA AS SHE IS NOW . OR SHE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME . OPEN BORDERS WILL HURT US ALL . AND MOST OF THEM BEHIND THE DNC AS WELL RNC WILL BE OUT OF WORK . THEY WILL WORK FOR 1/4 OF WHAT YOU GET .SO WHO DO YOU THINK WILL GET YOUR JOBS .

  7. We already have these laws on the books. We don’t need more laws. And we certainly don’t need democrats fighting for a gun ban. I saw this happen in Australia. Now Australians are warning America not to allow this to happen in our country. Gun confiscation leads to socialism followed by communism. That was the reason why the 2nd Amendment was written into law.

    1. There are NOW more legal guns in Australia than before the ban!! That’s what makes this stupidity even crazier!! Banning LEGAL gun ownership will do NOTHING to stop CRIMINALS from using this TOOL to kill people..

      1. Please proofread your article! I think I know what you mean, That prior to the ban there were more legal guns! Now! there are more illegal guns! This I am only trying to understand what’s happening on your side of the world for clarity, enhancements Thank you

  8. How about MANDATORY, INDEPTH BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS of all politicians, political appointees AND Judges?

    They have no “right” to hold public office.

    HOWEVER the People do have a PARAMOUNT RIGHT to know everything about any person that will have POWER OVER THE PEOPLE!

    1. Great statement, I agree, Obombya was pretending to be a Christian when he was running for office! They want to depopulate the Earth as the Georgia Guide Stones says. Fortunately these A-holes won’t be around much longer! The Bible gives an account of their demise at Jeremiah 49:23-chapter 51, see also Isaiah chapter 13 for clarity. I think this gun grab is mostly directed at the militia, which at the moment is the largest army in the world! There were two militia Acts of the 1790’s requiring ALL men of battle age to have the common battle rifles and standard military equipment of the day. If you check out the scripture I mentioned you will see the purpose of these laws which have not been repealed! GOD bless you all. Also see what I concider the most important words ever spoken,at John 3:3.

  9. President should not even address the issue of gun control with the demonrat communists…the demonrat communist block everything the President tries to do for the country especially Pelosi who will not put the USMCA on the floor for a vote…

  10. We cannot allow open borders as the dems want to open up. Free health care to illegal immigrants is out of the question. No free stuff for people who have not contributed to the pot from which those free goodies will come from. Illegal immigrants will over run this country and cause our country to go bankrupt. all this free stuff they want to give away is simply impossible financially as well as immoral. Americans need to wake up and get on board to elect representatives that are about our American values of hard work and freedom.

  11. The facts about guns and deaths are already on the side of gun owners. Rifles, all rifles together (including AR types) i the last five years do not account for one year’s deaths by knives (2017) Handguns make up 76% of deaths while all rifles account for only 28% (numbers are off from 100% because some killers brought both pistols and rifles to the scene). So all the blab from liberals to the contrary are a pack of lies! Eat that Beto! The liberals are hell bent on disarming citizens so they control them illegally. It is unconstitutional to take our firearms, protection, and sporting property!

  12. Fact 1 of 9: Background checks have been required by law on all retail gun sales including (Gun Shows) in the United States for the past 21 years

    Fact 2 of 9: According to Justice Department statistics: The total number of people killed by rifles of ALL types (not just the AR-15 / AK-47’s) for the last five years is less than the total number of people killed by knives in the year 2017 alone. (Rifle deaths 5 year total: 1,582. Knife Deaths year 2017 total: 1,591).

    Fact 3 of 9: According to Justice Department statistics: We know rifles are rarely used in murders and less than 27% of mass shooters used a rifle of any type.

    Fact 4 of 9: According to Justice Department statistics: Using the latest Published data FY2017 on mass shootings in public places, the weapon most of the shooters used was a handgun 87%. Note: The figures for Fact 3 and 4 add up to more than 100% because some shooters used both type of weapons).

    Fact 5 of 9: Liberal’s definition of “Gun control: The theory that people who are willing to ignore laws against rape, torture, kidnapping, theft, and murder will MAGICALLY obey a law which prohibits them from owning a firearm.”

    Fact 6 of 9: Everyone knows that Chicago has just a little bit of a problem with gun violence, which is really weird considering the fact the city has such strict gun control measures in place? After all, isn’t strict gun control supposed to prevent criminals from possessing firearms and doing acts of bloody violence? That’s what the left tells us repeatedly, but it’s obviously not true. Let’s hope these folks start using a little common sense and open their eyes to the fact their strict gun control laws aren’t hindering criminals from doing evil, but are instead, leaving citizens open and vulnerable, easy victims for the picking.

    Fact 7 of 9: A survivor of the Luby’s mass shooting in Texas was speaking before a house committee on behalf of gun rights. Her parents had been killed, so those sponsoring the bill had to treat her with a measure of respect. A Democratic sponsor of the bill said he was sorry for her loss, but that she certainly couldn’t need an AK 47 to protect her home from burglars. She agreed, and stated that we need AK 47’s to protect ourselves from enemies of the Constitution, trying to steal our liberties, such as lawmakers like him. You could have heard a pin drop.

    Fact 8 of 9: Governments have disarmed and executed over 262 million of their own people in the 20th Century..but please tell me again why Governments should be the only one with guns ?

    Fact 9 of 9: On April 19th, 1775, 700 British regulars detached from the garrison of Boston under Lt. Col. Francis Smith marched to Lexington and Concord on a mission to confiscate arms from the English colonists. The attempt sparked a revolution.
    Let that sink in Democrats!

    Final Thought: When the government tells you that you don’t need your guns, that’s when you need your guns the most!

  13. Chuckie Schumer has just LIED to America AGAIN. This fool just can’t stop doing it since every time he opens his mouth, more lies pop out.

    This time he states” We will NOT confiscate your firearms”?? How stupid does this fool think we are anyway!! Idiot needs to go disappear somewhere and never come back and take PegStupidLy and FeinIdiot and Beto with him.

    The DumboRats are trying to destroy our CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS. The only ones that need IMPEACHMENT are the lying DumboRats.. What a shame since they are supposed to support and defend the Constitution!!

  14. The Progressive Socialist Communist Infanticide’r Democrats do not do anything that they do not include some off the wall requirement. If anyone can prove to me how a universal registration of any kind would stop any crime in this country? The only reason they could have for their gun grabs is the fear that at some point the real citizens of this country would rise up and say enough is enough and take their country back. That in a short statement is exactly why the 2 Amendment was put in our Constitution as the second most important amendment in the Constitution. So ignore the political bull ship, and say it like it is, “Nothing but a gun grab”! for those who fear for their power grabs.

  15. Send a U.N. force they will be severely out numbered and loose big time China does not have the biggest army in the world and I don’t think they would even attempt to send in the a United Nations force to disarm the American people
    OUT OF MY COLD DEAD HAND.
