Gun owners freaking out over Trump’s ‘betrayal’ of pushing bump stock ban and new gun regulations

Published

on

Some of Donald Trump’s staunchest supporters are having a a meltdown after the president made a proposal to ban bump stocks that can turn a  semi-automatic weapon to full-automatic along with other modest changes to gun regulations.

According to CBS Miami, guns supporters and organized gun groups are accusing the president of “betrayal” after he belatedly responded to the shooting in Parkland, Florida, that claimed 17 lives.

Saturday morning, Trump retweeted himself from Feb 22, with a statement that read: “I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health. Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks! Congress is in a mood to finally do something on this issue – I hope!”

“Out in the firearms community there is a great feeling of betrayal and abandonment, because of the support he was given in his campaign for president,” Tony Fabian, president of the Colorado Sports Shooting Association, said in a statement Friday.

Additionally, Gun Owners of America sent out an email urging its 1.5 million members to call the White House and “Tell Trump to OPPOSE All Gun Control!” adding that gun control groups aided by congressional Democrats are working to convince the president he should “support their disastrous gun control efforts.”

“When they feel gun ownership is threatened, then they’re going to respond as if that’s the pre-eminent issue,” explained Michael Hammond, legislative counsel for the Virginia-based group.

Paul Paradis, a Trump supporter who owns a gun store in Colorado Springs, is furious that bump-stocks may be banned.

“Trump can propose anything he wants but it’s got to get through two houses of Congress and the Supreme Court,” Paradis stated.

Standing in front of a large sign saying "Trump Heights," Netanyahu, who is being forced back into another election, announced the building before planning even began, Axios reported.

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK

This graphic explains why Speaker Pelosi is resistant to impeachment

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has told her caucus that they can do investigations into the president without impeachment. The difference, however, is that there are fewer legal benefits available to Congress in their oversight role than in impeachment.

Theoretically, it should enable Democrats to do the research they need, but the White House is taking the bold step to defy the oversight the Constitution outlines. The only option open to the Democrats has been to go to court with their case outlining how the White House is breaking the law. Thus far, they've won two lawsuits about their investigations, and they will likely gain more.

Published

on

President Donald Trump tweeted out once again that he doesn't know the difference between a man hired to do opposition research and an entire country intruding on an election to sway the result.

In a Sunday Twitter rant, Trump proclaimed that if Republicans had done something like that, "there'd be hell to pay."

......If Republicans ever did that to the Democrats, there would be all hell to pay. It would be a scandal like no other!
