Trump Rejects Expanded Background Check Gun Control, Calls for Mental Health Reform

President Trump has reconsidered his approving attitude towards drastically expanded background checks for gun purchases.

President Trump rejected proposals to implement draconian background check measures intended to block firearms sales while speaking to the press in the light of two mass shootings Sunday morning.

The President stated that implementing new, arbitrary screening measures in gun transactions wouldn’t have prevented some of the recent mass shootings in America.

“Background checks – I will say that for the most part, sadly, if you look at the last four or five, going back even five or six or seven years — for the most part, as strong as you make your background checks, they would not have stopped any of it.”

Leading Democrats and pro-gun control Republicans have proposed measures intended to box anyone with a history of receiving mental health treatment from gun ownership. President Trump correctly pointed out that many of the individuals who committed recent mass shootings would have slipped through such backdoor gun control measures.

The President had recently signaled his willingness to support such vaguely worded proposals. It appears that after consulting with pro-Second Amendment Americans and the National Rifle Association he’s become suspicious of the danger such “expanded background checks” could represent to gun rights.

Trump suggested that policy makers focus on mental health treatment plans instead of new measures intended to strip Americans of their right to own guns.

As radical Democrats endorse full mandatory confiscation of semiautomatic sporter rifles and weak Republicans stand by ready to assist them with extralegal “red flag” legislation, very few mainstream American political figures appear willing to confront the underlying cause of mass shootings in America.

A real plan to combat the mass shooting epidemic would have to confront the unprecedented alienation of millions of young men from mainstream society, across broad American social and racial lines. It’s likely mass shootings will only continue as Americans are faced with the prospect of declining middle-class career and life prospects, without so much as even the hope of political leaders who even want to help them.
