President Donald Trump held a freewheeling White House meeting on Wednesday to discuss various gun-control measures, at one point jabbing a Republican senator over his reluctance to raise the age of all gun purchases to 21 from 18.
"I think you're afraid of the NRA," Trump said to Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, arguing that raising the age limit was "something we have to think about."
"A lot of people are afraid to bring it up," Trump said, referring to the National Rifle Association's vehement opposition to the proposal. Some Democrats, such as Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, smiled and nodded at Trump's remarks.
Toomey said his reservations were due to fear that such a regulation would punish the "vast majority" of 19- and 20-year-olds in his state who own rifles or shotguns and are "law-abiding citizens."

Typically liberal comment: if we disagree with it, it’s because we haven’t really thought about it enough! Morons.
Don Jr. needs to call Dad and have along talk with him about the 2nd Amendment.
Dumb move. He is being ill advised.
19 year old women are adults legally. Why would we disarm them? Aren’t they entitled to the human right to self defense?
Mealy-mouth Cornyn will hear from Texans who did not like the sell-out tone of the Kumbiya meeting with Democrats, who want to destroy the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Step 1 always leads to Step 2 in short order.
Ill advised? Try, these are his beliefs which is far more troubling
Snap out of it, Trump. DC and deep state ops are getting into your head.
Trump’s burning political capital with a blowtorch. Watch his approval ratings plummet.
Raise the voting and military service age to 21 too then, Donald.
Or do you want it both ways?
This is like the DACA meeting where Trump said this and that. Let’s see what finally shakes out here.
Apparently not, but they do have the right to abort if they are attacked and raped.
Will trade gun rights for 18-20 for voting rights.
He definitely lost capital with me today. This is the first time I haven’t respected one of his decisions. To use his phrase, DISGUSTING!
If we can show him some pics of kids killed by Al Qaeda in Syria and say Assad did it, we can invade Syria. It’s easy to manipulate him and he is surrounded by manipulators.
“Trumps burning political capital with a blowtorch. Watch his approval ratings plummet.”
Sure looks that way. He can play 9-D chess and win every time, but if people like me stay home in November because we consider ourselves to have been shivved one too many times, he'll be playing chess as an impeached, removed and ruined president.
Trump CANNOT ban Bumpfire stocks by Executive Order. But he CAN freak people out, into rushing out to buy them, and driving their prices HIGHER!
