Trump used to be reasonably sensible about guns, for a Republican.
In his 2000 book The America We Deserve, he wrote: ‘I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun.’
In the same book he attacked Republicans who “walk the NRA line” and “refuse even limited restrictions” on gun laws.
Now look at him.
When he ran for President, Trump became one of those same Republicans walking the NRA line and refusing even limited restrictions on gun laws.
Why? Because the NRA bankrolled him to the tune of $30 million and instructed their five million members to vote for him.
