President Donald Trump held a freewheeling White House meeting on Wednesday to discuss various gun-control measures, at one point jabbing a Republican senator over his reluctance to raise the age of all gun purchases to 21 from 18.
"I think you're afraid of the NRA," Trump said to Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, arguing that raising the age limit was "something we have to think about."
"A lot of people are afraid to bring it up," Trump said, referring to the National Rifle Association's vehement opposition to the proposal. Some Democrats, such as Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, smiled and nodded at Trump's remarks.
Toomey said his reservations were due to fear that such a regulation would punish the "vast majority" of 19- and 20-year-olds in his state who own rifles or shotguns and are "law-abiding citizens."

We've followed the Parkland fiasco. To call the performance of ALL those trusted with our safekeeping there as Keystone Kops...unfairly maligns the Kops and the amount of skill and preparation invested in THEIR performances.
We're not going to dumb down the law, and shrink our rights, to make the job of law enforcement simple enough for idiots. NOT.
Hes gone mad. Alas. If we wanted bs or threats against our constitutional rights we could have elected HilLIARy. We need to find a good honest reliable conservative non-GOP-e candidate asap for the next election
We are being “rope-a-doped” by the left masterfully. 2A is the key to the left’s wet dream of further control of the Republic.
They don’t have to steal one or buy one illegally, they just have to have a girlfriend or woman buy one for them. That is the complaint of some gun store owners here who knew that the female wasn’t buying it for herself.
I said theyd get one illegally. Having someone else buy a gun for you is illegal.
More much ado about nothing related yelling and shouting here. Basically proof that this site seems not particularly well policed in terms of keeping Alinskyesque trolls from coming here and playing pearl clutchers.
Actually, it’s not illegal to buy a gun for someone. I don’t know what the laws or penalties are for buying a gun for a minor or a convicted felon, or what the penalty would be.
It wasn’t that much for the 22 year old woman who hardly served time in jail for buying the weapons for Harris and Klebold.
Speak for your own kids. My 18 and 16 year old home school kids are both running the places they work at, while attending college. Both are tired but keep pushing as they where properly taught.
Moving to 21 is stupid. 18 year olds have every right and responsibility to protect themselves and their families.
6% approval rating by morning.
Great call. Stab your supporters in the back because CNN cries for a week.
WHERE’S MY ******* WALL!!!!
No he will not. Trump is a NY Democrat at heart. Says what people want to hear. NY Republicans are not any different.
How come we are depending on kids for wisdom on gun ownership laws while demanding that the age for purchasing a gun needs to be raised to 21 because they are not mature enough to be responsible gun owners. They are old enough to go to war. Wont they be exposed to evil assault rifles in the military?
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
“Trump is on our side. He is playing these Demon Rat thugs.”
By the God Who made me, I hope you’re right!
So who does he think is going to vote for him now?
Trump is on our side. He is playing these Demon Rat thugs.
He’s standing on their chests and not letting them breathe.
