Trump Says Making Schools, Children Safer to Be 'Top Priority'

A day after another school shooting massacre, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley indicated he’s willing to discuss new gun measures as Democrats begged him Thursday to take up the issue.

"What are we going to do? How many school shootings do we need in a given year?" Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein said, turning to Grassley at a committee meeting. "I’m here to say, Mr. chairman please, let’s take some action, we cannot see this continue on."

Grassley told Feinstein -- a longtime advocate of tougher gun measures -- that he planned even before the shooting to sit down with her and Senator John Cornyn of Texas to "see what sort of an agreement we can reach on legislation."

"It’s just very hard to sit here year after year and do nothing," said Feinstein of California. Seventeen people were killed at a Florida high school Wednesday by a shooter armed with an assault-style weapon.

She urged Grassley, an Iowa Republican, to pass a bipartisan bill to upgrade the existing background check system, as well as her proposal to ban bump stocks used to make weapons fire more rapidly. Both were proposed last year following massacres in Las Vegas and a Texas church but have gone nowhere in Congress.

Both ideas have had support from Republicans and are more limited and targeted than previous efforts to create a universal background check system for gun sales or to ban certain weapons.

The background check bill is sponsored by Cornyn, the No. 2 Senate Republican, and Senator Chris Murphy, a Democrat, who has been a fiery advocate of gun control in the years after the Sandy Hook massacre in his home state of Connecticut.

Yes the shooter had mental health issues and so do most of them, but focusing on that avoids the real issue, how did he obtain the weapon/s? A nineteen year old kid can buy an assault style rifle, this is crazy. No one objects to guns being in the hands of responsible adults but no one under 25 in the general community can be considered responsible without supervision. Why is this so hard?

You don't get living in a formerly free country like America once was.

Kids took their guns to school with them so that they could go hunting on the way home. It's NOT the guns dummy! It's more to do with the schools and nanny state gov. The kid never learned responsibility, he was adopted, supposedly suffered from "emotional fragility", and was on psych drugs.

And you're blaming the gun?

Not far enough,but a good first step. I say we pass the "no one under 25 can buy a gun" law,and then wait until the next shooting when it involves someone older,like the Vega shooter,and amend the law to read "No one under 125 years old can buy a gun"! (extreme sarcasm)

Do you shitheads NEVER learn? You are like little emotional bitches having hissy-fits. Try thinking with your mind for once,instead of your tv remote control!

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

*I* did that in high school. I'd go duck hunting at dawn,and then pull up the decoys and get to school at 9 AM. I'd walk right into the school carrying a double barrel 12 gauge shotgun and lock it in my locker until school ended,and nobody even blinked.

I once had my elementary school principal ask me to bring in a gun in that I had been talking about because he was a gun collector and wanted to see it,so the next morning I was carrying it when I got on the bus to go to school. Once again,nobody even blinked.

I think we should be talking about sending Grassley into retirement.

Oh I get it, when I was a teenager I used to carry a hair trigger .22 rifle in my golf bag to shoot crows, we had a real crow problem on that golf course. Of course you couldn't do it today.

That is entirely different to allowing a kid to have a semi automatic rifle. I was glad when our gun laws changed to automatic rifles were banned, no mass shootings of any consequence since, just a few crims popping each other off.

Owning guns is a right. Maybe we should make it illegal to buy a gun if you are going to shoot up a school.

That is so obvious,how could I have missed it? It covers all the "warm and comfortable" Dim spots,it's a law that punishes people for doing something THEY have no interest in doing,and it solves no problems at all,other than to make their legs warm as the piss runs down it at the thought of having the power to tell someone else what they can and can't do.

Yes. The arbitrary definition is crazy applied to a group of firearms, isn't it?

In the 70's We had skeet shooting as an activity during club week in High School.

Everybody brought their shotguns to school.

Back then the BSA qualified 11 year olds for hunters safety and shooting actual guns was part of that.

ZERO school shootings back then. ZERO snowflake cash-cows on anti- depressants.

The Horror!

But...But...Let's switch around the names, place, and narrative, shall we?:

The only problem there is the same of alcohol use -- if one is of age to fight in a war, he/she should be of age to vote and drink.

Attending College/Universities these days is "can be just a dangerous a bullet." OR spreading a deadly virus (IMO.)

All true and well stated.

THAT said, your ONLY hope to fight back against this insanity is...SUPPORTING DONALD TRUMP.

Choose a side, because there is no compromise, Hondo.
