In this article it covers why the Las Vegas shooting is unlikely to result in the change of federal gun-control. It is unlikely for five reasons. One, many Republicans believe gun-control is not the solution to our violent problem. Two, they also believe it is too early to talk about this. Three, because NRA (National Rifle Association) is one of the GOP's top donors. Four, if the GOP changed their stance on gun laws they would lose the NRA's support. Five, Trump's main promise was to keep the 2nd Amendment for what it is. You can see the first reason in the article when you read how after the Orlando shooting, Trump eagerly, "repeated his call for a ban on all Muslims entering the United States." Which goes to show that Republicans, especially Trump believe guns are not the problem, but that the people are. In the first paragraph of the article White House Press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked if President Trump was thinking about changing any laws that might prevent massacres like the one in Las Vegas and her answer was: “There’s a time and place for a political debate, but now is the time to unite as a country.” explaining their second reason for not wanting to change gun laws. "Critics say that for many Washington politicians — particularly Republicans generously funded by the National Rifle Association — it’s never time to talk, let alone act, about tightening gun laws." As the GOP is generously funded by the NRA what better time to talk about contracting the 2nd Amendment than never. Never, so they can keep the money flowing. Another reason why Trump especially doesn't want to change gun laws is of he did his entire office would crumble. I personally think gun laws should be contracted and that people should only be allowed to own hunting rifles than fire one round than reload and hand guns like pistols and other small guns that are actually reasonable for "protection".
What I read in this article is obviously after the recent mass shooting in Vegas, will Trump change gun control laws concerning the 2nd Amendment. Quick answer. Maybe. I say maybe because Trump has agreed to possibly debating a ban on "bump stocks", but many of his fellow republicans, including Louisiana House Rep. Steve Scalise who was shot at a congressional baseball event, say no. One factor I noticed was in this twisted world of politics money is always involved, especially when the NRA (National Rifle Association) is generously funding the GOP. Think, if republicans agree to contract gun laws, the NRA will most likely stop funding the republican party. Probably because that is the reason why they give so much green to the GOP. Another reason why gun laws might not change is many Republicans have started to look at gun laws and contracting the second amendment as just something Democrats try to use as a political pawn and try to promote it every time a tragedy like this happens. What the Republicans don't see is that we don't want to change gun laws just cause or just for political reasons, members in the Republican Party need to realize politics controls our country, it controls our laws which controls what people can and can't do. Therefore politics would have stopped a shooting like this and even though I am a very Catholic man and believe in the power of God, I know for a fact that the power of God does not work unless you do. Sitting and praying will not help unless we change laws. Lastly, the fifth reason why Trump and many Republicans will choose not to change major gun laws is as the White House Press Secretary said in a press conference, "There's a time and place for a political debate, but now is the time to unite as a country", which is what many other Republicans think, but the problem is for them it is never a good time to talk. They like to sweep it under the dark rug of grief until someone forgets about it. Trump and his colleagues will stop the contraction of gun laws in its tracks by simply voting no on whatever Dems propose when it comes to contracting the freedom of the 2nd Amendment.
In this article, unlike the past ones, the article states that though Trump and his buddies probably won't change any major gun laws some in his administration may be open to discussing a proposal to ban "bump stocks". Many Republicans believe it is a good idea because it turns semi-automatic rifles, into almost exactly automatic rifles, which are illegal. Another reason why many GOP members are open to discussing the bill proposal is, as Sen.Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif) says, "The thing is really well worded, because it’s short, it’s plain-spoken language,” Feinstein explained. She says this meaning there are no loopholes in her proposal. You also know that Republicans are open to a discussion because some have said this, "Sen. John Cornyn (Tex.), the second-ranking Senate Republican, said that hearings on banning bump stocks would make sense. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) said that a potential ban “is worth having a conversation about, and some of our members agree with that.” Even though they are open to discussing a proposal to ban bump stocks, many republicans, like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters that it’s “completely inappropriate to politicize an event like this.” He declined to answer questions on the subject. Which I find is exactly the problem, some of them think it is just some political thing to gain popularity, but really what Democrats are trying to do is stop the violence by stopping the flow of weapons. Unlike the other articles this one focuses on contracting the 2nd amendment. Whatever happens the ban is still in discussion and could go either way.
