Trump Supports Background Check System

President Donald Trump is open to supporting bipartisan efforts to improve the federal background check system to buy weapons, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a Monday statement.

“While discussions are ongoing and revisions are being considered, the President is supportive of efforts to improve the Federal background check system,” Sanders said, adding that Trump spoke with Texas Senator John Cornyn Friday about prospective legislation.

Sander’s statement follows a declaration from vice president Mike Pence that school safety will be a “top priority” of the White House in the coming months. “We are going to remain focused on bringing renewed energy to making our schools safe and taking a renewed look at giving law enforcement and local authorities the tools they need to deal with individuals struggling with dangerous mental illness,” he declared.

Wow maybe gun control checks and measures will finally catch up with, I don't know, being a teacher. Driving a car. Buying cold medicine or fertilizer. Getting a marriage license.

You apparently have not bought a pistol in Maryland and probably don't own a gun.
