Incendiary NRA spokesperson to join Parkland shooting survivors in CNN town hall

Incendiary NRA spokesperson to join Parkland shooting survivors in CNN town hall”

"They love our Country and will do the right thing".

The US Constitution's Second Amendment protects the right to bear arms.

"What many people don't understand, or don't want to understand, is that Wayne [LaPierre, president of the NRA], Chris [Cox, chief lobbyist for the Institute for Legislative Action, the NRA's lobbying arm] and the folks who work so hard at the NRA are Great People and Great American Patriots", Trump tweeted, tagging the organization's Twitter handle so they'd be sure to see it. "And we've got your backs".

"You should be anxious and you should be frightened" about the potential of another Democratic takeover of the House, Senate and White House", he said.

The shooting left 17 dead last week. Numerous teenagers and their parents taking part have called for more curbs on guns.

LaPierre also made a populist appeal by painting people who want common-sense gun control as either out-of-touch elites or socialists.

'Every day young children are being dropped off at schools that are virtual wide-open soft targets for anyone bent on mass-murder'. "It should not be easier for a madman to shoot up a school than a bank or a jewelry story or some Hollywood gala".

He specifically singled out Warren and other high-profile Democrats in his attacks, saying that the career of Bernie Sanders, a self-described "democratic socialist," is coming to a close.

Trump reiterated his idea, first raised on Wednesday, of arming teachers.

The US Congress has always been deadlocked on the gun debate, accomplishing nothing despite a spate of mass shootings and polls showing that Americans support stricter gun laws by a two-to-one margin. It aims to make federal agencies better at following rules that require them to submit criminal convictions to the FBI, which could help stop high-risk individuals from getting guns.

Ultimately, the NRA head reinforced to the conservative crowd that the only way to solve the gun violence problem is with more firearms.

"We must immediately harden our schools".

"They want to sweep right under the carpet the failure of school security, the failure of family, the failure of America's mental health system and even the unbelievable failure of the FBI", LaPierre said of those calling for increased gun restrictions.

But at an hour-long meeting on school safety with 10 state and local officials, Trump said armed teachers with an aptitude for guns would deter would-be shooters. And a sheriff's deputy who had been on duty at the school but never went inside to confront the shooter resigned after being suspended without pay. Under his leadership, the NRA has come out against a ban on assault rifles and universal background checks; LaPierre had previously supported the latter initiative in the late '90s.

On Wednesday, Trump hosted students and parents at the White House for a listening session.

In keeping with his combative character and perhaps with an eye to the views of Americans away from the liberal coastal belts, Trump believes that offense - in the form of more guns - is the key to keeping kids safe, rather than measures like banning assault weapons. He spent Thursday morning tweeting about possible changes to gun control laws.
