President Trump is being encouraged by gun rights advocates and some of his own advisers to act on gun control . But he could follow his pattern of abruptly dropping the idea of doing something after talking about it for weeks.
The president is facing pushback from gun rights advocates and some of his advisers. But he could follow his pattern of abruptly dropping the idea of doing something after talking about it for weeks.
What President Trump has not done yet is the kind of arm-twisting of Republican senators wary of gun control legislation that will be necessary to force a bill through Congress, according to interviews with White House officials and congressional aides. He has shown no interest so far in a major address to ensure that public opinion is behind such a move. And he and his aides have yet to settle on what he will actually propose.
The aftermath of the back-to-back massacres in El Paso and Dayton that killed 31 people has created an opening for Mr. Trump, who has been encouraged by advisers that he could accomplish something that his predecessors were unable to, and who has told reporters that he wants to accomplish “meaningful background checks.” And the president has assured advisers that he thinks the powerful National Rifle Association, which is rife with internal conflict, is “going bankrupt.”
“If Donald Trump is standing there,” Mr. Manchin said, “and we’ve got bipartisan senators standing beside him, and he says, ‘This is my piece of legislation and I support it wholeheartedly,’ it’ll pass. Without that, we’re back to square one.”
But they are less convinced that Mr. Trump will need to make a public push to sell the public on the wisdom of the move.
Those talks have centered on two possible paths: “red flag” laws, which make it easier for the authorities to take guns away from those deemed dangerous by a judge, and bills that extend background checks for gun buyers, which currently do not apply to private sales at gun shows or over the internet.
Mr. McConnell, who is seeking re-election in the gun-friendly state of Kentucky, has never said that;
In private conversations with Mr. Trump, Mr. McConnell has bluntly told the president that he will back such a move if the Republican Senate conference does, but that it is Mr. Trump who will have to nudge senators to support it.
“I think she can — her and the family, but especially her — can be the buffering when the pushback comes,” Mr. Manchin said. “She can tell him, ‘Let’s stay strong; let’s stay true. We know we’re solid with Republicans, with the base.’”
“This will fly if the president can get behind a package that he can sign into law,” Mr. Jennings said, adding, “It’s for the president to define for the Republican Party what direction policy is going to take.”Read more: The New York Times

shareholders Why is it so hard for the NYT to point out the fact that he is owned by the NRA? They gave him 30 million dollars in 2016 for his campaign and now he has to deliver for them, the NRA didn’t give him millions for charity. Do not hold your breathe True, but sad. आज स्वतन्त्रता दिवस है। क्या कश्मीरी आज भी अपने ही घरों में क़ैद रहेंगे? या आज स्वतंत्रता दिवस पर वो भी आज़ादी का जश्न मनाएंगे? जिन कश्मीरियों को EidAlAdha की नमाज़ तक पढ़ने की आज़ादी नहीं मिली वो आज किस राष्ट्र का राष्ट्रगान गाकर आज़ादी का जश्न मनाएंगे?

Trump Ties Trade Deal to China Action in Hong KongTrump warned China that it must respond “humanely” to the unrest in Hong Kong if it wants to strike a trade deal, publicly linking his administration’s fragile talks with Beijing to the protests for the first time. Something to ponder: if Hong Kong had a 2nd amendment- and its residents were legally armed- would Xi still attempt to quell their demands for democracy by sending the PLA? Over the past two months, only a few hundred rioters got arrested, and most are now on bail awaiting trial. What’s not humane about HK’s handling of the riots? Herr Trump wouldn't recognize humanely in the dictionary. Bullying China's leader? Your warnings aren't worth a dime.
