So, here is what Trump says about gun rights and gun safety...he


supports the Second Amendment, but he realizes that like many other amendments, their are limits to personal freedom, so that the safety of all can be considered.
So, I just copied and pasted this from his Twitter account. He is talking about red flag laws and universal background checks. If the Senate can start to dialog about this, then they can make some progress.

...mentally ill or deranged people. I am the biggest Second Amendment person there is, but we all must work together for the good and safety of our Country. Common sense things can be done that are good for everyone!

See how the rights of gun owners have to be blended with the rights of the general population to remain safe in public spaces? - B4E
