Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway said mass shootings should not be ”an excuse” Democrats use to confiscate guns.
“We’re not going to allow bad actors who should not have firearms in the first place, who then murder innocent Americans, to be an excuse for a bunch of liberals and socialists have to confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens who have legally procured them,” Conway told guest host Bill Hemmer on “Fox News Sunday.”
“Bad actors”… what an appropriate choice of words.
Conway didn’t answer what gun laws are on the table.
“The president has been actively engaged on the Second Amendment issue the entire time,” Conway said, adding that Trump had been in touch with Democratic and Republican senators in recent days.
Again, an appropriate choice of words. “Second Amendment issues”, not gun control issues. We’ll see how it turns out next week, but it appears Donald Trump is fending off Gun Control more than he is working to enact it.
