Trump has promised to investigate minor changes to American gun control law
A call to boycott the National Rifle Association became the top trend on Twitter as users of the global social platform demanded that a variety of companies sever their ties with the gun enthusiast group.
And when those young people [advocating for gun reform] wind their visceral anger and fears into an analysis that identifies a society founded on genocide and enriched through the enslavement of Black people and the economic exploitation of tens of millions of migrants, they will discover that guns, violence, racism and war is the blood, guts and sinew that bind this nation together. A spokesman later said Trump was speaking specifically about semi-automatic weapons.
However, the NRA has resisted the idea Trump has floated for raising the minimum age for purchasing rifles and shotguns.
In Florida, meanwhile, funerals continued. What if all of your medical records.do we really want all that on a government list, in a government database? "And if we're able to fuzz that line, all semi-automatics are at risk", said LaPierre.

"We share a goal of safe schools, safe neighborhoods, and a safe country", LaPierre added.
La Pierre, whose confrontational speeches have become a CPAC tradition, was not on early versions of the conference's schedule. Before LaPierre took the stage, NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said some in the media "love mass shootings".
"Many in legacy media love mass shootings".
In a long segment he attacked "socialists" who he said "oppose our fundamental freedoms enshrined in the bill of rights". I told them, 'We're going to have to toughen up.' It doesn't make anyone look good.
Vice President Pence also addressed the Parkland shooting at the outset of his remarks to the CPAC crowd. For them it's not a safety issue, it's a political issue.
The NRA did not respond to an NPR request for comment. And he remains opposed to a full ban on assault rifles, Shah said.

Van Dijk starts on Southampton return — Liverpool team news
We have weakened our 'feeder club' considerably. "But I think today the biggest defeat was the way we played in the second half". The gap has been considerably reduced, and Klopp is eyeing the March 10 trip to Old Trafford as a chance to finally catch them.
Man Utd star becomes latest to hit out at speed of VAR
I think maybe it's because he's this kind of kid profile: a normal haircut, no tattoos, no big cars, no big watches, humble kid. Also, the club terminated the contracts of chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman on Tuesday.
