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.

Texas Gun Rights Endorses Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Luther is running for the Texas Senate.

Earlier this month, pro-Second Amendment organization Texas Gun Rights PAC endorsed Shelley Luther in her run for Texas State Senate.

Luther gained national attention for her refusal to close down her salon in Dallas, Texas, which was in violation of Dallas, County’s lockdown order. She would end up in jail for violating the order but would later be set free after Texas Governor Greg Abbott took action to release her.

Chris McNutt, the Director of Texas Gun Rights PAC, issued a statement on Texas Gun Rights PAC’s endorsement of Luther:

It is clear Shelley Luther is the strongest pro-gun candidate running to fill the Senate District 30 seat being vacated by Pat Fallon. Texas Gun Rights PAC is proud to endorse Shelley Luther for Senate in the September 29th Special Election.

“Even before Shelley decided to run for office, she proved she had the courage to stand up and fight against an overreaching government without backing down,” McNutt added. “So it’s no surprise Shelley Luther was also the first candidate in the Senate District 30 race to take a bold, pro-gun stance.”

Constitutional Carry is one of Luther’s legislative priorities for the 2021 legislative session. This issue has been a priority for the Texas Republican Party during the last 6 years. Drew Springer, Luther’s opponent in the Senate election, never supported Constitutional Carry.

Passing Constitutional Carry legislation is part of Luther’s campaign platform and has been a top priority of the Republican Party of Texas for the past 6 years. Her opponent, State Representative Drew Springer, has never backed Constitutional Carry since he came into office back in 2012.

“State Representative Drew Springer claims to be ‘pro-gun,’ and yet he repeatedly refused to co-author Constitutional Carry every year that it was introduced,” commented McNutt. “Pro-gun Texans in Senate District 30 need a leader who is willing to fight for the Second Amendment like Shelley Luther, not another political backbencher looking for a job promotion.”

Should Constitutional Carry be passed, Texas would be the 16th state with this law.

Thanks to the political establishment’s constant legislative roadblocking, Constitutional Carry has had a considerable amount of trouble in being passed in the Lone Star State.

With politicians like Luther potentially in the mix, Constitutional Carry has a stronger chance of being passed.  America First patriots living in Texas Senate District 30 should resoundingly vote for Luther due to her firm commitment to limited government.
