    Thumbs up TRUMP Nixes "Assault Weapons" Ban

    Heading to El Paso, Trump nixes assault weapons ban. President Donald Trump dismissed legislation to ban assault rifles as politically unfeasible on Wednesday as he prepared to visit the sites of two deadly mass shootings. As he left the White House, Trump said he wanted to strengthen background checks for gun purchases and make sure mentally ill people did not carry guns. He predicted congressional support for those two measures but not for banning assault rifles.

    Good on his not going after so-called "assault" weapons.

    As I have said many times, if they would just make murder illegal, the weapon used would not matter.

    "Politically unfeasible"? How about "unconstitutional"?

    Does this mean that if it WERE "politically feasible" that he would support it?

    That's how I read it.

    Yeah I'd like a better wording, but we'll take it. Sadly, the time is coming when our allies in the repub party will run very thin.
