NRA ‘happy’ to meet Trump but not changing position

The National Rifle Association (NRA) says it’s willing to meet with Donald Trump but it’s not changing its position on “due process & right to self-defense for law-abiding Americans.”

Trump on Wednesday floated a potential ban on buying guns for people on the terrorist watch or no-fly lists, saying he wanted to meet with the NRA to discuss it.

The pro-gun organization responded in a tweet that its position has long been “no guns for terrorists — period.”

The NRA expanded on its view in a statement Wednesday.

    While I agree that the watch list may not be the right way to go, since the dang thing is so inexact and too many people with sound alike names are on it, may they should have access to the watch lists. If a name appears on a background check to buy a gun and the FBI or other agency has them on their list, the purchase could be held until that agency has cleared or not the person. However, they should be limited to the same 7 day period. No one should be denied due the the ineptitude of the agency to check a dang list in a week. If it takes more than that, the list is probably as corrupt as the no fly list.

    It’s time to DUMP Trump and CHOOSE Cruz. We need the true Conservative, the true Patriot, the true Constitutionalist, and the true Leader in our WH, NOT the foul-mouthed con artist.

    Yes, indeedy. Trump is a TOTAL PHONY. See below. The entire file is posted on the Right Scoop blog.

        You’re pathetic with the name calling. See below. This excerpt that mentions Ted is from the Trump Opp File above. So they will have to “make stuff up” about Ted? That’s because Ted has an absolutely clean record with no criminal acts, no bankruptcies, no divorces, and no dirt like YOUR guy. “Making stuff up” to malign someone is the lowest of the low.

        “Pray that GOP nominate Trump in Cleveland. If Ted Cruz gets the nomination we are screwed. We will have to make stuff up if we run against him.”

    Well theres only one problem with that. Trump or the nra do not put people on those lists. Obama and dems can stick anyone on them.

    How about this: No guns for Muslims, and no Muslims in the U.S. Now that I think about it, let’s send both Muslims and Democrats back to the middle east. The Democrats will love it there.
