Dems are at fault for nothing being done but attacking Trump. Sen. Chuck Schumer on Sunday said the growing impeachment debate on Capitol Hill shouldn’t stall long-sought legislation seeking background checks for gun purchases — nor keep President Trump from backing the measure. Schumer, speaking at his Manhattan office, called on Trump to “prove to the American people that he can still govern” and is not “consumed” by Democrats’ push to impeach him. Why should Trump help Schumer and the Dems while they are trying to oust him illegally.
Congressional Democrats have long pushed for stricter background checks on assault gun purchases — with the measure seemingly gaining momentum this year after deadly mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas. Trump initially seemed to warm to the legislation. Last month, he told reporters he was no NRA puppet, and that, “I have an appetite for background checks.” But the president later slowed things down after meeting with LaPierre and other gun advocates. Background checks are not what the Dems want.
