Fox Business Host went full gun grabber on August 7, 2019.
She tweeted that Trump “has a major opportunity: he can BAN assault weapons and invoke strict gun laws and background checks in one executive order” in response to recent shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
.@realDonaldTrump has a major opportunity: he can BAN assault weapons and envoke strict gun laws and backgrnd checks in one executive order. To heck w/ lobbyists at NRA – the majority of Americans and common sense supports this! It’s time to do what is right for our country.

What Regan is advocating for was already tried when the federal government passed an “assault weapons” ban in the 1990s.
According to the Washington Times, the Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice found that the ban produced “no discernible reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence.”
Additionally, California has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation. It is ranked 46th according to Guns & Ammo magazine. Nevertheless, a high-profile shooting took place on July 28, 2019 at the Gilroy Garlic Festival.
Red flag confiscation orders have also been put forward as legislation that must be passed to address gun violence. Careful research shows that these laws have also proven to be ineffective in stopping shootings as well. In fact, Connecticut was a leader in passing red flag laws by enacting its own version of the law in 1999. However, this law was unable to stop Adam Lanza from committing a massacre at Sandy Hook.
Gun researcher John Lott’s work on the subject has also demonstrated that “Red Flag laws appear to have had no significant effect on murder, suicide, the number of people killed in mass public shootings, robbery, aggravated assault or burglary. There is some evidence that rape rates rise. These laws apparently do not save lives.”
The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him
Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.
President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.
On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.
The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”
In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”
“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.
Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.
Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
