NRA Opposes Trump On Raising Gun Purchase Age Limit

Politico reports:

A spokeswoman said Friday the National Rifle Association will not support efforts to raise the age limit on who can purchase assault-style guns, casting doubt on President Donald Trump’s forecast that the group “will back” the push. “Raising the age is not going to solve psychosis,” spokeswoman Dana Loesch told CNN on Friday when asked about the NRA’s stance on the measure.

During a White House meeting with state and local officials on school safety Thursday, the president appeared to expressed support for the measure. But Trump also prompted skepticism when he seemingly pledged that the NRA would back the move. “It should all be at 21,” Trump said. “And the NRA will back it.”

The NRA spokeswoman also addressed her incendiary speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference a day prior, where she hammered news organizations for their response to the Florida shooting. “The mainstream media love mass shootings,” Loesch charged during a fiery address. Pressed by CNN on why she made the accusation, Loesch replied: “Because it’s true.”

    don…the NRA dosent give a fuck about you and youre plan to stop the murders. just like the rest of us.

  • hankbear

    Can we now label the NRA as a Terrorist Organization? Asking for a friend…

    • penpal

      I think I would cum in my pants if a Democratic politician actually had the nerve to say that for once.

      • shellback

        Does he have to be a politician and can he watch?

    Not sure why they need to oppose this since Trump will change his mind as soon as any legislation nears passage.

    She’s does have a point. I don’t know how old she is, but she is definitely psychotic!

  • safari

    I want everyone to think of organs being shredded when they see her face. The Atlantic article on what an AR15 bullet does — first fling an organ away from the bullet and then crash it back into the path destroying it and leaving an orange-sized exit wound — should be the first thing anyone thinks of when they see her face.

  • Lizard

    Of course they do. How are they supposed to sell AR-15s and bullets to future school shooters if they’re under 21?

  • netxtown

    I’m sorry – but this bitch could be getting the nicest and bestest dick in town – and still whine she is unfulfilled…..while refusing to admit her junk is plain ol worn out.

  • kelven

    “Raising the age is not going to solve psychosis,” In your case Dana, that’s certainly true. Dana Loesch, the woman who strives to always be the biggest dick in the room.

    • Lizard

      Pretty sure that’s not even true. Experts aren’t supposed to diagnose anyone under 18 with a mental condition because their brains are still developing and changing at that age. Sometimes people actually do grow out of it.

      • John Davis

        True for some conditions. Also, schizophrenia often develops only AFTER puberty.

  • Steverino

    Of course Dana Roach wants to lower the age so pre-schoolers can pack heat in their lunch pails.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      If you love your child you’ll make sure they are packing.

    • David Walker

      A Glock and Twinkies…the perfect lunch. But don’t forget to include the money to buy a Mountain Dew with which to wash it down…with.

  • Uncle Mark

    No worries, NRA. President Dotard will quickly forget whatever it was he promised earlier, especially if you continue to funnel/launder that sweet sweet Russian money into his campaign coffers. In fact, just a moment ago during his CPAC blather, he made no mention of raising the age limit.

      A “45” — the number, not the revolver — should be embroidered on the cuff of the recipient.

          It’s all predestined. God has the best scriptwriters and scenario artistes.

  • Butch

    I think it’s telling that a big bank and a major car rental company have decided to cut ties with the NRA. The NRA may finally be on the losing end and knows it, thus the frantic defense.

    • David Walker

      There’s still the Russian income. At least that will enable them to buy a FAX and mimeograph machine. /s (because, apparently, I have to)

      • Bad Tom

        When that’s all they have (other than membership dues,) it will be easier to see RUSSIAN MONEY slathered over everything they do.

    • Reality.Bites

      This is like when the major corporations not only stopped backing down on LGBT issues, but started taking an active stand beyond internal policies and where they advertised or what

  • glass

    Leave the age at 18, but add a 10 year waiting period to the process.

    • John Davis

      Best idea I’ve seen.

    • Chucktech

      Bet they’d STILL squawk…

  • John Davis

    I’m waiting for the NRA to say that SIXTEEN should be the starting age, like it is for drivers’ licenses in most states ! Good lord above, these people are both sick and paranoid and have brains completely devoid of rational thinking.

    Judge rejects Shkreli’s request to have conviction voided: Bloomberg

    (Reuters) – Biotech founder Martin Shkreli’s request to have his securities fraud convictions thrown out was rejected by a judge who is set to sentence him on March 9, Bloomberg reported on Friday.

    • Reality.Bites

      Although I suppose such a thing can happen since there’s a term for it, I imagine it’s pretty rare. Like when after the jury reaches its verdict the murder victim walks into the courtroom and confesses to faking their own death in order to commit the perfect murder – the eventual execution of the accused for a crime they didn’t commit.

      Since they believe in justice and a good guy with a gun, the murder victim then shoots themself. God bless open carry!

      “Biotech founder”? He bought a mature pharma product already on the market and then jacked up the price. Don’t make it sound like he’s helping to map the genome.

        Damn autocorrect. It was supposed to be “flounderer.”

      • killreligion

        My recollection is the biotech he founded bought those rights. And it wasn’t the first one. No all biotechs work in genome mapping etc.

    • John Davis

      Michael Moore tweeted exactly that this morning.

  • Publius

    21 is a reasonable restriction. In the case of Parkland, the shooter, who was jilted by his time in high school, would have had three years to get the fuck over it. It’s a cool-off and maturing period in which kids can finish puberty and get their impulses in check, as much as anyone can.

    • Wisterley

      And Las Vegas? Wasn’t the shooter 58? Didn’t he use the same weapon of war? Clearly the solution is to ban the weapon.

      • Publius

        Sure man, maybe. But this approach may have saved 17 lives. Let’s not make perfect the enemy of good by throwing out some good ideas.

        • Wisterley

          It’s an NRA talking point and is ridiculous. The solution is simple. Ban such weapons.

          • Publius

            Let’s be really clear: the NRA’s talking point includes opposing all substantive gun control solutions. Don’t veer into assumption of bad faith territory just because you have discovered the idea that multiple solutions can be helpful.

            The inutility of supporting the banning of these weapons, and opposing everything else on principle is that we will wait around forever to no avail for that solution to become reality. The piecemeal approach can save lives, and it will.

  • Rex

    The NRA will back it and Mexico will pay for the Wall, yeah, no. We don’t believe anything he says.

      I was wondering who this is, because I’m familiar with most of the behind-the-scenes names in comedy and discovered that all (or almost all) of Paul’s work has been in one-hour dramas or perhaps dramedies.

      Perhaps a show about a drama producer ordered by a judge to produce a sitcom about a hot young mom who does a far right radio show could work.

      Jerry Seinfeld could play the judge and he could pop in on them from time to time to see they’re sticking to it.

          Best Buy used to recommend Kaspersky back in the early to mid 2000s for those like me with tons of MP3s and a separate hard drive. This was before the first Russia hype in the early years of the Obama administration.

    • AmeriCanadian

      What will be the next bill to be signed? Voters must be 21 or older? Or voters must be gun owners?

      • David Walker

        18 is legal owing to a constitutional amendment that was maybe the fastest-ever approved amendment. In theory, it would take another amendment to destroy that, sort of like the “no alcohol” amendment which was rendered stupid by another amendment that acknowledged the first one wasn’t working. I think (I’m giddy at the thought) that some young people may object.

        • AmeriCanadian

          We both know this but you underestimate Republicans and how crafty they can be with finding loopholes and other ways to skirt the constitution. I put absolutely NOTHING past them.

          • David Walker

            Understood. The honorable republican members of the PA legislature are in panic mode because PA citizens will actually have a free and open election this year.

      • 2patricius2

        12 year old gun owners can vote, but non-gun owners will need to be white, 85, and rich to vote.

    • Jefe5084

      I’ll restrain my enthusiasm until we see all the loopholes they provide. Such as “21 or older, unless they had previously reached the age of 12 years old.” Stuff like that.

  • Gayer Than Thou

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised that they want the lowest possible age limit on buying a gun because of the evidence that indicates things like brand preferences we form as young people tend to stick with us and music we listen to as young people tends to be dominant in the soundtrack of our lives. I bet there is also evidence that owning a gun at a young age leads to a lifetime of gun ownership (and therefore gun purchasing, which is all the NRA cares about).

    • Tulle Christensen

      Republicans think if you are old enough to consent to sex you are old enough to own a gun, so they think 12 is a good age

  • Jefe5084

    Wow, such a vile creature. She rivals many of her male far righters. Yeech. Don”t we have remote prisons on other planets yet? She needs to go.

  • Mike

    Obviously, the only solution is a total ban. Thanks again, Dana, for helping us see it all so clearly.

  • Gigi

    Dana “Gun Humper/NRA Shill” Loesch gets all moist for mass shootings if the shooter is a brown or black guy. If the shooter’s a white guy in a MAGA hat she sends “thoughts and prayers” and tells her peeps to buy more guns because “Libturds” wanna take ’em away.

    She’s right. There’s no point in raising the age limit.
    Assault weapons must be banned outright.

    • Daddy redneck will just buy it for Redneck jr.

    • JustDucky

      Semi-automatic rifles, semi-automatic shotguns, and detachable magazines* must be banned. Just banning “assault weapons” leaves too much leeway because the definition is tied to bells and whistles like pistol grips and bayonet lugs.

  • Halou

    Trump wants to raise the age to 21 because he is scared of school children who will be turning 18 over the next two years and are consistently polling as extremely pro-Democrat.

    If he “wins” a second term he will no doubt be trying to raise the legal age again to either keep Democrat voters from voting, or to feed his fantasy that he loses the popular vote because of “illegals”.

    • clay

      Kansas’ Kris Kobach’s plan is to screw up / cancel the 2020 Decennial Census so that they have to fall back onto the 2016 presidential vote as the basis for reapportionment of the US (and state) House(s). This wouldn’t prevent younger voters, but it would strip them of representative influence for ten years, reducing the voice of dynamic cities, most suburbs, and college towns.

    My biggest disappointment with the MSD student “town hall” was that they invited an NRA spokesperson as a counterpoint instead of just letting them speak. Dana Loesch had the nerve to say that the NRA doesn’t want guns getting into the hands of madmen and nobody called her on it.

    Name a SINGLE time that the NRA has said anything other than “Everybody ought to have a gun!” They oppose even the most basic of protections like background checks, keeping guns away from the mentally ill and even on people who are on a no-fly list.

    A number of psychiatric illnesses that can feature psychosis don’t fully manifest until one’s early 20’s. So, arguably, Dana, raising the age *could* address some of the cases where psychosis is present.

      The same applies to Dana Loesch.

    Raise the age to 21 years minimum.
    Tax the hell out of ammo to provide additional funds for mental health diagnosis and treatment.
    Realign ATF responsibilities accordingly.
    ‘Harden’ background check criterion to include mental health and public safety violations.
    Close loopholes which allow unimpeded ownership.
    Unify language nationally regarding license responsibility and violation consequences, and database sharing.

    OF COURSE THEY DO! FUCK THE NRA!

    And some people just want revenge.

  • Len Ricci

    This NRA wack-o needs to be stopped… I know she is very protective of her NRA stockpile of blood money, but she doesn’t give a shit about the kids that get massacred because of the NRA agenda. So give the bitch an island of her own so she can die there of old age.

  • Galvestonian

    It’s my belief that it’s time to go after the NRA especially in connection with the transfer of Russian based funds to the Trump campaign and/or the use of said funds to assist in getting Trump/Shitler elected.

  • Moebym of the Returners

    Okay, so if raising the age will not solve psychosis, what solution do you propose to prevent more gun massacres?

    • David Walker

      More guns, of course. It’s the ultimate answer to everything. Like 42, which was offered in either “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” or “Restaurant at the End of the Galaxy.” I don’t remember which book, but the answer has stuck with me.

    You want to see psychosis, you and your pals only need look in the goddamned MIRROR, you bloody MURDERERS!

    Who ARE these people?! Imagine how the right would react if a left-wing advocacy group possessed this kind of POWER over government!!

  • rednekokie

    Why, such an action might just cut into their gun sales!!! Heaven forbid!!!

    When a child draws on the wall with markers, the first thing you do is take away the markers. It’s a metaphor they just don’t get.

  • andrew

    The NRA opposes all sane and rational solutions to the guns/weapons problem in America and so do their hired guns in Congress and many State legislatures.

  • Reality.Bites

    Holy shit, Joe, warn people! You could put someone’s eye out!

  • “Raising the age is not going to solve psychosis,”

    No, but it will keep assault weapons out of the hands of angry, hormonally-driven teenagers.

  • ‘Til Tuesday

    Of course the NRA said no. They say “no” to no matter what is proposed. Their job is to convince people to buy guns, guns and more guns. More guns sold = more money for the NRA. They’re the lobbying arm of the gun industry. The battle lines are drawn: it’s the Death Machine (NRA) vs the students. It’s a “David vs Goliath” battle. Go students!

    Her picture looks like she’s in the middle of saying, “Fuck You.”
    I’m hopeful that we’re able to do the same to her, her cronies, and the legislators who seem to think more guns is a good thing.

      I was just mentally praising the photographer for getting her at her beautiful best. The face of hate and rage is never flattering.

  • JackNasty

    Relying on mental health advice from the NRA is like relying on physical fitness advice from Donald Trump.

    Also in cuntastic news: “We will not be gaslighted into thinking that we’re responsible for a tragedy that we had nothing to do with,” NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference

    Coming from the NRA, this is a real surprise. They are one of the sickest, most vile political organizations that exist in this country. Worst thing is that they have the funds to purchase the loyalty and subservience of literally any Republican politician including our Dear Leader.

  • TheSeer

    She is vile, even by NRA standards.
