Trump has promised to investigate minor changes to American gun control law

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 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.

The president says he'd prefer what he called a "hardened school" over active-shooter drills.

A spokesperson for Enterprise Holdings said the company had "ended the discount program, effective March 26", but did not answer CNNMoney's inquiries about when and why the program was terminated.

"Let's be clear, we are never talking about an armed resistance against the socialist corruption of our government", he said. He bolstered a call by Republican President Donald Trump to arm teachers following the Parkland shooting, and offered free training.

Survivors of the Florida shooting and their parents have prompted a newly energized national conversation on gun control and have focused much of their protest activity at lawmakers who have accepted political donations from the NRA.

"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.

The Democratic governors for northeastern states of New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island said they would co-operate to seize and trace illegal guns and prevent dangerous people from making legal purchases. A 19-year-old used a legally obtained AR-15 to open fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, killing 17 people and wounding at least 16 more on Feb. 14.

Polls show growing support for gun control measures, including 97-percent backing for universal background checks in a Quinnipiac University survey released Tuesday.
