Donald Trump to meet with NRA on banning gun sales for people on terror watch list.


Washington (CNN)Donald Trump said Wednesday he will meet with the National Rifle Association to discuss barring individuals on the terror watch list and "no fly" list from legally purchasing guns.

"I will be meeting with the NRA, who has endorsed me, about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no fly list, to buy guns," the presumptive Republican presidential nominee tweeted Wednesday.

This should come as no surprise. Trump has been a lifelong liberal.

He has always supported the Clintons and their "assault" weapons ban and has even criticized the NRA.

I'm just glad this is coming out prior to the elections so we hate a better idea of what we can expect.

Government "watch" lists really go against everything that America was founded on and (hopefully) still stands for.

We dont know whos on it, why theyre on it and theres no way (currently) to be removed from it.

Guilty without the opportunity to be proven innocent.

47,000+ on the "no fly" list. 1,000,000+ on the "terror" watch list (and climbing).

And which restriction is next: barred from employment, denied medical coverage, how about a bank account, credit card or a mortgage?

Who exactly is a "terrorist"? Everyone from OWS to the Bundy's have been called "terrorists".

We have two problems in the US.

We have an Islamic Terror problem and an apologist idiot problem.

I would go farther and prevent any non citizen from owning a firearm.

HA.
Can't wait for his Cult to try and spin this one.

Remember what they said when Hillary & Obama said the same thing?

Shillary?
Dictator-In-Chief?

They want to shred the constitution?


Don't reply to me with nonsense unless you feel like humouring me even more, I probably won't respond.

This seems like a much better solution than restricting guns for all law abiding citizens, which is what the current administration wants to do.

If Hillary has her way, all guns will be banned, totally.

I dunno.

The right of self defense is inherent to every human being.

The Constitution doesnt grant us this right, it only tries to protect it.

I cant agree with denying someone the ability to protect themselves and their families because theyre not citizens (assuming green card holders etc can buy a gun).

A solution will work itself out but IMHO stripping rights is not the correct way.

Good ol' "lesser of two evils" in an election between the two most hated candidates in history.

No thanks.

I'm sorry but there can be no compromise on the 2A because these people do believe in incrementalism.

Gary Johnson 2016.

Trumps camp will be firmly behind this move and laugh at whiny regressives trying to spin this.

The right actually accepts the FACT that we have Islamic terrorists in this country.

The left seems to thing the best way to fight terrorism is to disarm the citizens and take down a flag.

Wah.

If you don't like it stay in your own country.

It's not like we have a shortage of immigrants in the US.

That is, if you don't need to import a voter base.

S&F Just like the thread I posted yesterday. Those in power want nothing to do with an armed citizenry.

'Bout the only politician who didn't seem to care was Ron Paul.

What about all those people who can't fly because their name is something like John Smith? All of a sudden nobody named John is allowed to own a firearm?

And ... what exactly are the criteria for being added to the No Fly List? Hasn't that been a topic of interest a time-or-two here on ATS?

And ... which party was it that declared Military Veterans are all crazy ... or that anyone who wants to own a gun is insane.

Keep pushin' and don't be surprised when you get shoved back. I'll keep bringing up how the government's merc force backed down at the Bundy Ranch. Piss the GOA off and there will be a violent overthrow of the US Government ... probably right down to the local level.

Except hers, of course.

When these libtards disarm their staff and call 911 when attacked like they want us to do I'll check back with you.

Wait. So you are saying that when the left tries to restrict the 2nd Amendment it is tyranny, but when Trump wants to do it, it is a valid and acceptable method to combat our enemies? Lol the Trump double standards live on.

Can't wait for comments after the meeting.

This could get good.

"Watch list" doesn't mean non-citizen. The Orlando terrorist was a citizen, born in NY.

I know it's just spelling mistake, but "so we hate a better idea of what to expect", sounds right.
You, one major part of you, wanted that to happen, now you can choose between two democrats and a socialist.
Everyone of them, might be criminal.
Enjoy

Nope, I'm saying that not allowing people suspected of being terrorists to purchase firearms is a good idea.

Just like we do with felons.

I'll also add, watch out for scummy liberals that will try to put their own words in your mouth, because they can't argue with the point you've made so they try desperately to strawman you.

Also, ATS should have a middle finger icon.

Dude, he said the same thing when the GOP blocked the watch-list bill half a year so so back.

I suggest the Trump people pay closer attention.

Well, let's just hope the NRA sets him straight.

We will see what he says, after the meeting.

That's why I said I'd " go farther".

Wow you clowns must really be getting desperate with your strawman tactics.

Why don't you stick to whats actually being said instead of trying to change the argument into one you think you can win?

Democrats have been trying to disarm those on a watchlist for 3 years, minimum, probably more...

Do you actually believe that's the right thing to do now that the Cult Leader says it?


Don't assume to tell me what the Right Wing think...Mudpit or not... They're nuts.
They'd never go for this if Hillary said it, as evidenced by the thread the day after the shooting when she said exactly the same thing!!!
