Trump expected to announce new gun legislation


YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME. REALLY APPRECIATE IT.>>THANK YOU, YOU TOO. LELAND: MEMBER OF THE HOUSE FINANCIAL SERVICES COMMITTEE, BILL HUIZENGA, GOOD TO SEE YOU, SIR, FROM GRAND RAPID WHERE THE RIVERS CONVERGE. BEN TRACY OVER AT CBS NEWS REPORTING THAT THE PRESIDENT’S EXPECTED TO ANNOUNCE GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION THIS WEEK, BUT THE SUBSTANCE OF IT IS A MYSTERY. WHAT WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO SUPPORT, IF ANYTHING?>>WELL, AS YOU INDICATED, THE SUBSTANCE IS A MYSTERY. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S IN IT. IN FACT, I HAD A CONVERSATION WITH A MEMBER OF LAW ENFORCEMENT THIS MORNING AT CHURCH, AND WE WERE TALKING A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS. IT WAS INTERESTING HEARING MY COLLEAGUE TALK ABOUT BEING IN FAVOR OF AN ASSAULT WEAPON BAN BUT NOT IN FAVOR OF A BUYBACK. AND IT SEEMS TO ME THAT SEEMS A LITTLE INCONGRUENT. BUT EVEN THIS, EVEN THIS POLICE OFFICER FRIEND OF MINE WAS SAYING, LOOK, WHO’S GOING TO GO AND ENFORCE THIS? IF THAT — LELAND: I GET — [INAUDIBLE]>>RED FLAG. LELAND: I DIDN’T HEAR ANY REPUBLICAN SAY THEY’RE GOING TO SUPPORT ANY OF MR. O’ROURKE’S PROPOSALS, BUT YOU DIDN’T ANSWER THE QUESTION OF WHAT YOU WOULD SUPPORT OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE. IF YOU COULD HAVE THE PRESIDENT SUBMIT SOMETHING TO CONGRESS THAT WOULD BE MEANINGFUL AND HOPEFULLY PROTECT AMERICANS, WHAT WOULD THAT BILL LOOK LIKE?>>WELL, SO I’M NOT SURE ANYBODY HAS EXACTLY THAT ANSWER AS OF YET. FOR ME, AS I’M LOOKING AT IT I WANT TO SEE HOW WE ARE GOING TO DEAL WITH THE MENTAL HEALTH SIDE OF THAT. HOW ARE WE GOING TO CONTINUE TO EMPOWER FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS — LELAND: YEAH, BUT THERE WAS ALREADY A BILL THAT CAME OUT OF CONGRESS. THERE WAS ALREADY A BILL THAT CAME OUT OF THE HOUSE SPONSORED BY DEMOCRATS THAT ADDED MENTAL HEALTH TO BACKGROUND CHECKS, AND A LOT OF REPUBLICANS OPPOSED IT, AND IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE IT’S GOING TO GO TO THE SENATE. IS THAT SOMETHING THAT IS WORTH SUPPORTING?>>WELL, WE HAD PREVIOUSLY DONE THAT WITH 21ST CENTURY CURES, ACTUALLY. THERE HAD BEEN A NUMBER OF THOSE THINGS. SO WHAT WE SAW WAS, AGAIN, A GROUP OF ISSUES THAT SOME OF THEM WERE FAIRLY REASONABLE, OTHERS WERE REALLY OVERREACH. AND WE’RE SEEING THIS SET OF BILLS THAT HAVE BEEN TALKED ABOUT THEY HAVE THESE ELEMENTS OF OVERREACH THAT I THINK ARE GOING TO GO NOWHERE IN THE SENATE. LELAND: YEAH.>>SO IT’S GOING TO BE HARD. I THINK THAT IF THEY’RE EMPOWERING STATES TO EXPLORE RED FLAG LAWS — LELAND: I’LL TAKE IT, I’LL TAKE IT AS THAT THERE’S NOT A LIST RIGHT NOW THAT YOU HAVE READY THAT YOU’D BE WILLING TO SUPPORT. WE WILL MOVE ON TO SOMETHING THAT’S –>>WELL, LELAND — LELAND: IT’S A PRETTY SIMPLE QUESTION. IT’S A PRETTY SIMPLE QUESTION.>>YES, HERE’S THE — [INAUDIBLE] LELAND: — OR YOU SAY THERE’S NOTHING I WANT TO SUPPORT. YOU HAD A MINUTE TO TALK.>>NO, NO, NO, BUT HERE’S THE FRUSTRATION, HERE’S THE FRUSTRATION, IS THERE’S AN ASSUMPTION THAT NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE IN THE PAST, AND I KNOW THAT’S NOT THE CASE — LELAND: WELL, THAT’S A PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE ANSWER TO SAY I THINK THE LAWS THAT WE HAVE ON THE BOOKS ARE ENOUGH, BUT I DIDN’T HEAR YOU SAY THAT EITHER.>>YEAH. WELL, I CERTAINLY DON’T — IF THERE IS ADDITIONAL THINGS IT OUGHT TO BE INCREMENTAL AND ADHERES TO THE CONSTITUTION BECAUSE THERE IS A LOT IN PLACE NOW. LELAND: REAL QUICK, I WANT TO GET TO WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE STATE OF MICHIGAN RIGHT NOW WHICH IS THIS POTENTIAL UAW STRIKE COMING UP. THIS FROM A DETROIT REPORTER FOR FOX 2 THERE IN DETROIT, SPOKESMAN SAYS THIS IMPACTS 48,000 UAW WORKERS AT GM PLANTS ACROSS THE CUP. THERE’LL BE A HUGE — ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THERE’LL BE A HUGE RIPPLE EFFECT BECAUSE EACH AUTO JOB AFFECTS 7-9 OVER JOBS IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN. THIS IS THE UAW FLEXING ITS MUSCLE IN A SERIOUS WAY. HOW DOES THAT PLAY IN MICHIGAN?>>WELL, CERTAINLY WHAT WE ARE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT, WHAT I’M CONCERNED ABOUT WHETHER IT’S MY COMMITTEE WORK ON JUST COMING FROM MICHIGAN IS ECONOMIC ACT AB — ACTIVITY. AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY BY MY FRIENDS IN THE UAW. IN FACT, I HAVE FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS THAT ARE MEMBERS OF THAT — LELAND: SO YOU SAY, YOU SAY FRIENDS –>>DISAGREEMENT INTERNALLY AS WELL. LELAND: DO YOU SUPPORT THE STRIKE?>>NO. THERE IS, ACTUALLY, DISAGREEMENT AMONG THOSE FOLKS. HERE’S WHAT I’M HEARING THOUGH, IS THAT THEY ARE VERY, VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE LEADERSHIP OF THE UAW WHICH SOME OF THEM ARE ALREADY IN JAIL. MAKING SURE THAT IS NOT FOR THEM, BUT IT’S FOR THE MEMBERS. YES. YES, THERE’S A MASSIVE ONE GOING ON. HERE’S WHAT WE NEED TO DO, IS PASS THE US OR MCA. THAT WILL — USMCA. LELAND: THAT’S CERTAINLY SOMETHING — THE REDO OF NAFTA. CONGRESSMAN, WE APPRECIATE YOU COMING ON, SIR. THERE’S A NEW BARBECUE PLACE THAT’S OPENING UP IN GRAND RAPIDS, SPARKS BARBECUE. I SUGGEST YOU CHECK IT OUT. [LAUGHTER]

  • Rodrigo Gonzalez

    I'm from Michigan and I please BEG you… ! PLEASE TRY, to EVEN as a JOKE, to get this politician to commit to a statement! This entire interview was you trying to get him to say…" I feel this way" or 'I believe this way ' and he ABSOLUTELY had the TOP Democratic ways of deferring by saying … "other people" or "other people have a point of view" or "other people are thinking this way" and " maybe there's a difference in opinions" and any other slogans that say "I really don't ACTUALLY want to say anything!", so that I can say in power.!
    This is almost a class for all poli-sci kids to watch… about HOW TO LOSE A JOB….

  • ? thompson

    Our President went full politician (say one thing, do another) when it comes to our 2nd amendment rights. No telling how many votes he's lost as a result.

  • David S

    I feel martial law and civil war on the horizon. Wonder how many enlisted and vets would stand for this? I think most of them know their oath. Time to pop some popcorn and watch the show.

  • bean dip

    Trump isn't stupid; however if he did flip-flop on us and started banning this or that, or implementing ridiculous legislation, who would be left for us to vote for?

  • Kristof

    WE ALREADY HAVE A ANSWER:
    A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall NOT be infringed.
    So what are they talking about it????
    Did not put they hands on the Bible???

  • thomascampr

    Mental illness? So anyone on antidepressants I guess they cant own a gun?very slippery slope. And pot smokers can own guns legally either that's why they're legalizing is everywhere

  • thomascampr

    Just remember their legalizing marijuana because anyone that smokes marijuana is not allowed to buy a gun it's already passed in many states

  • Lady Lion

    Infringed is key word in the second amendment.. you want to stop and have gun control GO AFTER GUN MAKERS CLOSE THEIR BUSINESSES PUT PEOPLE OUT OF WORK. LAWS AND BANS ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN THAT'S WHY WE HAVE LAW ENFORCEMENT.
    STOP GUN MAKERS IS HOW YOU CONTROL GUN'S. GOOD LUCK TAKING AMERICA'S GUN'S…

  • Hunter Jones

    The 2nd Amendment doesn't grant the right to bear arms, it limits the Government from infringing on our God Given Rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness and within that is our natural right to self preservation and our ability to guard against tyranny from an overreaching Government.

  • Karls RV Living

    If u personally and it's well known that more Gun laws don't protect the people, but only punish legal gun owners then logically what is the point of more laws??? And isn't it logical that Gun owners would be suspicious of government, and oppose laws that restrict or infringe upon there Constitutionally given rights?

  • Brad C

    What a WEASEL anchor……just egging this poor representative on to make some impulsive grab onto some anti 2nd amendment garbage. Criminals dont obey laws…..quit making it harder for US law-abiding citizens to protect ourselves. If ANYTHING CC should be UNIVERSAL!!!!!! Put THAT law into effect if you want to LOWER crime rates. "SHALL NOT INFRINGE"

  • matthew rittenhouse

    Why were the comments disabled on the previous video? The one about Iran denying knowledge of the drone strike on saudi oil.

  • Kathleen Haidl

    How about a standard background check like in California for starters ? Come on Trump nobody owns you. Stand up to the NRA. You won't lose a single vote.

  • steve t

    Any gun that deliberately kills a person should be arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law!
    Trump should stay away from the gun control issue, it’s a trick by the liberals to discredit trump with his voters!

  • Ivan Ledden

    Get rid of guns you get rid of the right to overthrow government if need be soooo your choice how can you over throw a government with guns when the people don’t have guns to over throw the government you think the people will do anything with pitch forks and torches against a government with AUTOMATIC M4 carbines and you call an ar15 an assault weapon assault weapons are used by the military for the military the people do not own fully automatic machine guns except for the people that are collectors or private companies like kriss or h&k

  • Carissa Barnett

    Christ, everybody in these comments acts like 12-year-olds. Gun regulation is not the same as "they're gunna take away r guns an infrenge r rights!!!1!!!1!!!!1!" Imagine how you would feel if you saw somebody carrying around a bomb; bringing it into your childrens' schools (or your own, probably, if you actually are 12 and not just idiotic), your neighborhood, your local bank. The bomb isn't on a countdown, but there's a readily accessible red button labeled "detonate" that the carrier could press at any given moment and blow up the entire area. Would you trust them not to press the button? Would you trust that nobody around you would steal the bomb and press the button? Exactly. Carrying a deadly weapon with you is ridiculous and unsafe, no matter what type it is. All gun laws are meant to do is make it more difficult for bad people to get their hands on guns, to make the world around us safer. Grow up, please.

  • Justin Watts

    Most cops are not going to enforce gun confiscation on good law abiding citizens….. Law enforcement takes an OATH to uphold the Constitution including the 2nd amendment…. They know that next it could be their parents, kids, brothers or sisters that are affected this and their right to protect themselves… Sooner or later, Law enforcement will take a stand and say to the crazy LEFT that enough is enough and the Constitution stands!

  • cheesegyoza

    My rights trump your fears and the dead bodies of victims that you stand upon to grand stand. I will not vote for President Trump again if he goes forward.

  • Kevin Garver

    The economy could CRASH, the work on the border wall could stop, the trade talks could stall, there could be WORLD WAR III, but I would still vote for TRUMP as long as he doesn't hurt the 2nd Amendment.

  • Christian Rubino

    Another war on behalf of Israel and now the first steps taken to end our right to bear arms. Literally the only 2 things trump voters will turn on him for.

    So many politicians are afraid to stand up and openly say that they stand by our constitution and Bill of Rights, because nowadays they’re afraid that if they do they’ll lose their job. They only care about keeping their position instead of upholding our great countries beliefs/rights/backbone! They’ll never take away our God given rights without 1st turning our country into a communist one!!!

  • Gage Westerhouse

    So even republicans in Congress are cowing to the calls for an 'Assault Weapons Ban', even though the majority of Americans oppose an assault weapons ban.

  • TheFoolinthe rainn

    This is how the Revolutionary War started. Taking away arms. Dangerous trend giving Libs power. USA doesnt have a qualified mental health industry to determine mental health – most social workers and court psychiatrists are liberals. Lift the hood to find out how this is actually going to work

  • Theurban Robinhood

    Typical Fox argument strategy, interrupt until you change the subject. Is there some sort of class they take before they are brought on air? He answered the question the first time but Tucker Jr did not like his answer.

  • JustAnother InternetExpert

    NO GUNTROL PERIOD! SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED! SUPPORT GUN CONTROL, RED FLAG LAWS, LOSE MY AND MY FAMILIES AND ANYONE ELSES I CAN CONVINCE VOTE!!!! END STOP! AND FOX NEWS IS REAL CLOSE TO LOSING MY VIEWER SHIP, BECAUSE I AM STARTING TO SEE THEM CALL FOR GUN CONTROL!!!! NO GOV. HAS THE RIGHT TO DISARM ITS CITIZENS!

  • S Dennis

    If red flag laws include depression, anxiety and ptsd meds, than military and law enforcement will be flagged and have their 2nd and 4th amendments violated. Ask yourselves this, who will be the tip of the spear in a revolution…. perhaps those with the mindset, training and ability to act…..

  • TheAnial8r

    8 years of Obama and no gun control other than NRA fear mongering to sell more guns. Now that Trumps president, gun sale are down and they need new fear mongering to sell more. Only things he's done so far are ban bump stocks and rescind Obama rule that require SSA to release info about mentally ill patients during gun background check. No effective laws will actually be passed. Everyone can calm down.

  • Marius Thefaker

    Relax all you gun nuts. They said gun legislation, not gun reform… He's probably just gonna let y'all have hand grenades too from now on… Happy?

  • Anderswl916 X

    Wow it’s that easy for trumptards to turn on their great leader? I thought you idiots were brainwashed loons, glad to know your not all brainwashed, just loons👍

  • goofymonstar

    When will this administration hold a town-hall so the people of our country can sit down and ask him questions and keep him accountable for his policies ??? rallies are too easy – it is not a dialogue between our government and the voters, just screaming into a microphone.

  • ThatJust Happened

    These tv personalities want to tackle issues like gun control in sound bites. “Just give me your quick simple list”…it’s the mindset of an impatient 8 year old child.

  • Ghaz Man

    Nobody wants to do anything meaningful, if they are looking at inanimate object control. Notice the period after that sentence. If you want to do something meaningful, then the government should reopen the institutions it closed. It would mandate that each police department maintain a panel of three on-call psychiatrists, and those who were suspected of being mentally ill would be brought in front of that panel to make the determination is someone should be subjected to a 3 day evaluation. Lastly, there should be national mental health screenings at the 9th grade level, and those that need in-patient care should be given it. You can keep giving youths mind altering drugs and telling them to "check in" if the voice come back.

    We were meant to own weapons capable of fighting the well armed and trained British army or any other army that tried. So yes we are meant to own these weapons for defense against enemies Foreign and Domestic

  • JustAnother InternetExpert
