And trying to appease the folks that want you to restrict our freedoms is foolish.
Firstly, they won’t ever be happy until there is a complete ban on private ownership of firearms. Secondly, do you really think that doing this will in any way help your position with those who opposed you? They didn’t vote for you, they will never vote for you, and, indeed, they despise you and all that you stand for. Pandering to these people will alienate the folks who DID support you, who DID vote for you, and, (if you don’t step on your wedding tackle too many times between now and the election) will likely vote for you again.
If you wish to fix things to prevent the sort of shooting that happened in Parkland, Fla, fix the mental health system, fix HIPPA so that mental health issues can be reported to the NICS database. Get people with mental health issues off the street and into places where they can get help and where they, and society, will be protected. Fix things so that cops can report, and get evaluated, those individuals who are disturbed, in order that they can be addressed and, if needed, taken out of society for safety, theirs and ours.
But don’t piss on those who are your supporters for short term political gain. Don’t bend to those who oppose you anyway….Stand there and be a leader.
