Trump on the NRA: ‘They’re Great Patriots, They Love Our Country’
TRUMP: "Well, we’ll see where the NRA will be. But we have to have meaningful background checks. You know, in both cases it’s possible they wouldn’t have been caught. But in the one case, we also have to talk about age. Because he did things that were very, very bad in Ohio, in Dayton. He did some things that were really bad. The school knew about it. When he turned 18, everything was expunged. We'll have to get rid of that because you can’t have that barrier. If they wouldn’t have had that barrier, they would have been able to see. But because he was a minor, it was expunged. We'll have to get rid of that barrier. I think a lot of really meaningful things on background checks will take place, including red flags, including a lot of other very, very important items, as the Republicans are looking at it very seriously. And I really believe the NRA, I have spoken to them numerous times. They’re really good people, they're great patriots. They love our country. They love our country so much. And, frankly, I really think they’re going to get there also."
