NRA: “Trump Doesn’t Want Gun Control”

President Trump is reassuring the National Rifle Association amid the latest debate on gun control that he is a big supporter of the Second Amendment.

Trump tweeted that he had a great meeting last night with the gun rights group in the Oval Office.

An NRA spokesman Chris Cox, who heads the group’s lobbying branch, said on Twitter that both the President and Vice President Pence “support the Second Amendment, support strong due process and don’t want gun control.”

This week in a meeting with lawmakers, the President expressed openness for gun control measures and a delay in due process for people posing possible threats.

President Trump on Wednesday voiced support for confiscating guns from certain individuals deemed to be dangerous, even if it violates due process rights.

“I like taking the guns early, like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida … to go to court would have taken a long time,” Trump said at a meeting with lawmakers on school safety and gun violence.

“Take the guns first, go through due process second,” Trump said.
