I was surprised he said this But I got the impression he was talking about cases like Cruz..
Lets be honest that guy should have never been allowed to keep his guns due process be damned.
Where do you draw the line...? Spousal abuse, DUI conviction, Reckless driving, Psychological therapy, What is the criteria for being a responsible adult and cleared to own firearms?

I liked the idea of raising the age requirement. I like the idea of stricter background checks. I just don't like removing due process until AFTER property is confiscated. Now, I don't mind the idea of streamlining the process so that it could happen faster - but not just removing it altogether.

The second amendment isn't expendable.
This country is well aware what happens when a dictator attempts to confiscate firearms. It means very, very terrible crimes and attrocities are coming.
Did you not read our Constitution/writings of the Founders?

Mr. Trump also flatly insisted that legislation should raise the minimum age for buying rifles to 21 from 18 — an idea the N.R.A. and many Republicans fiercely oppose.
I guess that means they will have to raise the age to 21 for anyone joining the military. I wonder how the MIC will deal with that?
