President Trump called National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre on Tuesday to tell him that universal background checks for gun purchases are off the table, The Atlantic reported.

 

The decision to oppose an initiative that has strong support in public polling signals an apparent backtracking by the president from initial comments he made following two mass shootings earlier this month in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that left 31 dead.

Trump at the time indicated support for legislation on “meaningful background checks,” saying the issue was not a question of the NRA or political partisanship.

 

“On background checks, we have tremendous support for really common-sense, sensible, important background checks,” Trump told reporters on Aug. 9 following the shootings. However, Trump reportedly no longer supports the initiative.

 

“He was cementing his stance that we already have background checks and that he’s not waffling on this anymore,” a source told The Atlantic with regard to Trump's phone call with LaPierre on Tuesday. “He doesn’t want to pursue it.”

You knew Trump was going to puss out and bail on any real gun control measures once the NRA gave him his marching orders. Same as the last time he started talking about universal background checks and then quickly backed off.

It’s funny to me how his supporter see him in some light standing up to the power, but in reality the guy is a tiny little bitch. If he wasn’t he wouldn’t have said he supported the measures and then backed down; he would have said he was opposed to the idea.
