The Quick Facts

During a bipartisan meeting to discuss gun control this past Wednesday, President Trump called on Congress to raise the minimum age to buy an assault weapon from 18 to 21 and to create a stronger, universal system of background checks for gun purchases. In the meeting, Trump expressed his belief that guns should be taken from the mentally ill, stating “Take the guns first, go through due process second.”

Trump also stated his intent to sign an executive order banning “bump stocks”, the device used by the Las Vegas shooter to convert his semiautomatic rifle into an automatic rifle. 

President Trump’s stances directly conflict with the political stances of the National Rifle Association (NRA). The timeline for any potential gun-related legislation remains unclear.
