Trump NRA Speech

Postby RicoTX » Fri Apr 28, 2017 1:44 pm

Trump gave a speech today at NRA. He says the Federal Assault on law abiding gun owners is over. So, I guess now I can carry at the post office and other Federal Property. Excellent news!
Now maybe we can get it in writing.

Maybe if he can get Congress to repeal 18 USC 930 then we could carry in federal buildings. He may have more success with USACOE and the Postal Service with an executive order forcing them to do a regulatory review of regs preventing carry on their property.

Pres. Trump gave a very good speech today, as did Sen. Cruz.

I dunno... I supported Trump 100%, but I'm beginning to wonder just how much he's going to get done. Nice NRA speech, yes, but I remember him declaring that "my first day in office, those gun free zones will be gone." The federal assault on law abiding gun owners is over? OK, so.........

The speech was good. I just watched it. I'm thinking that when Trump was running for office he didn't realize that there is a big difference between a president and a dictator. POTUS is not all powerful, and some of his campaign promises/hopes require cooperation from others that he has not been able to achieve yet. I hope he learns how to gain that cooperation, and has not stepped on so many toes that no one in Washington will help him.

He has a lot of power when it comes to regulatory rules and regulations. Some of the most operessive rules made by the COE and Post office were made, not legislatured, but by the stroke of the pen. He probably wouldn't even need to sign a real executive order. A public verbal suggestion would likely be enough to get the ball moving, as they say crap rolls down hill. He has said a lot about how he supports the NRA, but not much about real things that would change the anti-climate in goverment agencies.

He should have asked Congress to send the Hearing Protection Act to his desk to be signed.

It's what I call "The Ex-General" effect, that occurs when either former high-placed military, or upper executive types go into politics. Previously, they've been working in environments where then they tell a subordinate to do something, it happens. Working with legislators on the other hand, is more like herding cats. Everything is constantly a work in progress......Presumably, an ex-CEO who wrote books like "The Art of the Deal" has the negotiating skills to keep things moving along. But the difference between autocrat and influencer does require a significant mental adjustment..........

I am thankful that witch is not in the WH now. So yes, while I want him to do a lot more, at least we don't have that creature in there...

Instead of NRA speech, it would be MDA or some other groups like that receiving presidential reception.

I second parabelum's post.

The people have spoken.

Leftist ideology has been firmly rejected.

...though their whining continues...it's music, music to my ears.

Isn't this what we have in Texas? Laws, AG and LTC all behind us holders trying to enter City buildings and property, still- NO ENTRY ALLOWED. Why do you think one more law will do any good?????

I have to disagree, it reminded me of a campaign stump speeche by a used car salesmen. A lot of style, not much substance...much like our current legislative session.
When any govt, or church,says This you can't read, are forbidden to know, the result is tyranny and oppression. Little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked; no force can control a free man, not the rack, bombs, not anything, you can't conquer a free man, at most you can kill him.
