Nah man, GOP candidates are going to want to distance themselves from him. Guarantee even less likely to compromise. GOA is gonna come a knockin'.

Yes. Seems like Trump is throwing a Hail Mary except he's mistakenly throwing the ball into the wrong end zone. What could go wrong?

Someone must have made Trump think the NRA thought it owned him or something. Hilarious results though, particularly if the very unlikely happens and actual solid gun control laws get passed due to his temper tantrum.

But forcing all states to lower the age at which you can buy a gun is totally the Federal Government's business. Or forcing states to re-criminalise marijuana is totally the Federal Government's business.

Wrong, the Federal government has no authority over handgun age and has no business enforcing the war on drugs except at the borders.

Republicans in Congress have already said they wont pass any such bill and are very upset with him.

*shrugs* ideology. Of course you don't have any of that.

Good luck on overturning RvW though.

If I wanted to shoehorn my ideology into the courts, I would say right to not be deprived of life without due process means no state can legalize abortion. But I don't do that, because I'm conservative, not progressive. I don't try to subvert the Constitution

Some of them may be Kekistanis, so you're probably better off giving them a plastic Roman armor and a supply of rare Pepes, the tools needed for them to LARP to their hearts' content. Only then should you send them along with the guys with the guns and Gadsden flags... and with that done, just sit back and enjoy.

The subversives of the GOP are flipping their shit over Trump's newest tariffs. He is getting around them by Section 232 of the 1962 Trade Act.

Until they stop supporting open borders and unrestricted trade (both of which Bernie Sanders vehemently opposed), they have.
