Data gathered by President Trump’s campaign shows he would suffer a loss of support during the 2020 election by supporting gun control, Breitbart Reports.
ABC News reports that the “data is comprised of campaign polling conducted before recent back-to-back mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, that left 31 dead.”
The data suggests support for stricter background checks among a majority of Americans, but “gun control measures would be unpopular with Trump’s base.”
Trump ran on a pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment platform in 2016.
The White House requested data of President supporting any gun control measures, it would pose a problem for him politically going into the 2020 election season, according to sources familiar with the results.
On Thursday, Trump met with moderate West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin at the White House to discuss ongoing efforts to craft a bipartisan gun control bill. They discussed so-called red flag flaws and background checks, but Trump gave Manchin no commitment to back any particular measure, according to a senior Senate aide.
The House Judiciary Committee intends to mark up five additional gun control bills on Tuesday, according to sources.
That statement has the progressive Left licking their chops, hopeful that a cowed Republican majority in the Senate will pass new gun control measures – with universal background checks, red flag laws, restrictions on AR-style rifles, and magazine capacity limits all on the menu. When the Senate debate begins next week, Democrats will inevitably repeat several lies that have gained traction on the Left in recent years. Here’s the truth.
Hamline University professor Jillian Peterson, a psychologist and co-founder of The Violence Project, told ABC News that a common profile of mass shooters is they see their attack as a suicidal act.
“I would say one of the biggest findings from our study is that a mass shooting is a suicide,” Peterson said, referring to a study of 150 mass shootings between 1966 and 2018. “About 80 percent were actively suicidal before it happened, and there’s really only one or two cases in our database where the person actually had an exit plan. The majority of the time, you go in planning to kill yourself or be killed by the police.”
