Addressing the elephant in the room

President Trump seems to back off raising minimum age to buy guns, “Not enough political support”

raising minimum age

President Trump on Monday suggested that he still supports raising minimum age to buy guns despite the idea being left out of a White House proposal over the weekend.

In a series of morning tweets the President said he supports strengthening background checks, arming school officials and banning bump stocks.

The president also said he supports raising the age for purchasing rifles to 21, but said there is not enough political support to make the idea law.

“Very strong improvement and strengthening of background checks will be fully backed by White House. Legislation moving forward. Bump Stocks will soon be out. Highly trained expert teachers will be allowed to conceal carry, subject to State Law. Armed guards OK, deterrent!” Trump tweeted.

The President added “On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting. States are making this decision. Things are moving rapidly on this, but not much political support (to put it mildly).

The White House announced on Sunday that it is expressing a federal commission to examine how to better address gun violence in schools. It is clear however that Trump will not be proposing raising minimum age on gun purchases. He is going to leave proposing any bill up to Congress. And there is no political support for raising minimum age on gun purchases.

This is the truth of the matter on guns. There is no support whatsoever on raising minimum gun age. If the Democrats want to listen to that young punk David Hogg and propose federal gun control we have mid-term elections coming up, let them run on gun controls. It will be a slaughter of epic proportions. Running on gun control is even less popular than running on tax increases which the Democrats have tried a few times with poor results.
