The media and the Democrats thought they had Donald Trump boxed in.
President Trump was about to enter his re-election campaign with Democrats claiming they had the wind at their backs.
And then all hell broke loose when Donald Trump admitted this one shocking truth.
After a deranged gunman murdered at least seven people and wounded more than 20 others, gun-grabbers jumped for joy.
Many in the media and Democrat party celebrated this development as a chance to press Donald Trump to cave in and accept massive new gun control.
But the President met with reporters and told one truth that no one on the Left wanted to hear – that gun control would not have stopped any of the mass shootings in recent years.
While speaking to reporters Sunday morning President Trump said stronger background checks would not have stopped the mass public attacks our nation has witnessed over the past six or seven years.
Trump said, “I will say that for the most part, sadly if you look at the last four or five going back even five or six or seven years, for the most part, as strong as you make your background checks, they would not have stopped any of it.”
He made these comments the day after a man in the Midland-Odessa region of Texas drove around shooting people while sitting inside his vehicle.
The New York Times reports that Trump assured reporters he is “speaking with Republicans and Democrats on possible legislative efforts regarding guns,” but no other details were forthcoming.
This is the dirty secret gun-grabbers don’t want Americans to know.
Gun control does not stop criminals.
It only disarms law abiding citizens.
And the Left was horrified to see Donald Trump make this point.
