Trump: I told the NRA ‘we’re gonna stop this nonsense’

President Donald Trump on Wednesday signaled his support for a hodgepodge of policies — from strengthening background checks to raising the minimum age to buy certain guns and taking guns away from the mentally ill — during a meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers at the White House on Wednesday.

But after an hour-long televised meeting, it was still unclear what specific legislation Trump would support. And the wide-ranging meeting, which included blunt back-and-forths between Trump and members of both parties, laid bare the vast divide on gun legislation and Trump’s own unfamiliarity with the searing, years-old gun debate.
Trump again, brought up his support for raising the age of gun purchases from 18 to 21, though he didn’t specifically say he would sign a bill that includes that provision.
