BREAKING: Trump Backs Improved Background Checks!

President Trump has allegedly backed a bill to "improve" background checks on firearm purchases.

From Zerohedge:

President Donald Trump elicited howls of outrage when, during a weekend tweetstorm, he blasted the FBI for being too focused on Russia to prevent the shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., which left 17 students dead last week.

In a series of tweets, students at the school blasted the president for selfishly using the tragedy for political purposes and blamed him and the broader Republican Party for resisting gun control laws that might've stopped the shooter, who had a history of mental illness, from purchasing the AR-15 assault rifle he used during the attack.

Students at the school and others affected by the shooting are calling on Congress to act to improve gun control restrictions, per the Hill.

And in a shocking reversal, Trump appears to have listened to their comments because the White House is saying it's "supportive" of stricter background-check requirements, according to NPR.

Trump reportedly spoke with Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, who is co-sponsoring a bill with Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy to tighten federal background check requirements, saying that the White House is "supportive" of strengthening background checks.

Celebrities Are Uniting To Push Gun Control!

A number of celebrities are promoting a March 24th "walkout" of students to push for gun control. From Breitbart: On March 24 students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and other schools around the country will march in hopes of pressuring Congress to pass more gun control. Although the March is officially titled “March for Our Lives,” BuzzfeedNews reports the march is indeed focused on securing gun control:

ABC News reports that South Broward High School students have already begun rallying for gun control, with Sophomore Genesis Campbell leading chants while holding a sign that read, “No more silence, end gun violence.” And this all comes after Nikolas Cruz complied with gun control to acquire a rifle, then carried that rifle into a gun-free school zone and opened fire, killing 17. Actress and gun control advocate Julianne Moore praised the students for pressuring Congress to act: Read more: (Link: Please share and comment!

BREAKING: Florida Sheriff Pushing Gun Control Exposed Forcing Abortion On 17-Year-Old Girl!

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has been accused of having an affair with a 17-year-old girl and forcing her to get an abortion in 2012. From The Gateway Pundit: In a YouTube video uploaded in 2012, an unidentified woman accused Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel of having an affair with her and forcing her to get an abortion when she was 17 years old. In a series of three videos uploaded to a channel called “Barry Israel,” the unidentified woman claims to have been in a six month long relationship with Israel. In the videos, she addresses Israel directly — seeming scorned and angry.

“Hi Scott, it’s me again. You know that at 17, because of you, I had to have an abortion. Now I’m finding out that you have three kids — and a kid from another marriage, and a wife of 20 years and you’re happily married. Are you serious?” the woman asks. The description for the video reads: Read more: (Link: Please share and comment!

Republican Representative Goes Anti-Gun!

Rep. Francis Rooney (R-FL) has considered banning AR-15s for private ownership as well as other restrictions on legal gun ownership. From Breitbart: On Saturday’s “MSNBC Live,” Rep. Francis Rooney (R-FL) stated that “some freedoms are going to have to be given up” to ensure unstable people don’t get weapons and that he will agree to act on gun control, but “not necessarily for normal people.” He also expressed uncertainty as to whether people should be allowed to own AR-15s and argued for making schools harder targets. Rooney said, “Well, we are one of the most open societies in the world. I think that each one of these heinous crimes raises the bar and makes us — compels that we, as a nation, rethink where we are on our open society versus what are we willing to do in restricting freedom to make sure that we’re safe and secure. Very unstable situation here, when someone like a person of this demonstrated mental illness, at the local level and even to the FBI, could get ahold of an assault weapon, we’ve got to think about that.” He added, “I think this raises the bar significantly, that a person of this demonstrated debility could get ahold an assault weapon, that so many warning signs at the — at all levels of government would go unanswered, and that he could just walk right into another soft target school. We’ve got to harden up these schools. Too many schools have been plagued.” Later, Rooney answered a question on his support for looser gun laws by stating, “I think…the question is who gets the gun, not the gun itself. I think we need to have really tough laws on background checks and making sure — and waiting periods, maybe even put chips in the guns, so we know where they are. But something — some freedoms are going to have to be given up to make sure that unstable people don’t have access to those weapons. Guns don’t kill people. The deranged people kill people, and they use guns or they use car bombs or they use different things to do it.” He further stated that privacy laws “absolutely” have to be looked at.
