One particular comment from President Donald Trump during Wednesday’s bipartisan meeting with members of the House and Senate on gun control seemed all but certain to draw the attention of the National Rifle Association. And, indeed, it has.
Appearing on Fox & Friends Thursday morning, NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch delivered the group’s response to Trump’s remark on due process. (“Take the guns first, go through due process second,” the president said Wednesday.) Suffice it to say, the NRA is not on board.
“One of the things that NRA leadership stressed to the president on Sunday is that due process must be respected,” Loesch said. “Harden schools, respect kids. Due process must be respected.”
Earlier in the segment, Loesch weighed in with her overall take on Wednesday’s bipartisan meeting. And the NRA spokesperson expressed little optimism.
“I love the fascinating discussion, but at the same time it doesn’t make for great policy for keeping our kids safe,’ she said. “Look, there’s a way that you can respect and protect due process, and protect the rights of millions of Americans, while also hardening our schools and keeping kids safe.”
