A Dumpster Fire

Liz Shields covers a meeting that President Trump hosted yesterday.
Trump taunted lawmakers by telling them, "you're afraid of the NRA." He'll soon find out why politicians are afraid of the NRA during the 2018 elections if he doesn't walk back some of the insanity he was tossing about in that meeting.
Some of the ridiculous changes to firearm laws Trump seemed amenable to include outlawing private guns sales, raising the age to 21 to buy a long gun, and taking people's guns without due process. Like I said, what a dumpster fire. Not one of those things will stop criminal maniacs from getting a firearm.
Trump is fond of saying that he is not a politician, but he had better pay attention to the politics, or he's liable to suffer disastrous losses during the midterms.  And, he has every reason to be afraid of the NRA.  We've been taking down nitwits for several decades.  Ignoring due process, indeed.
