    From Breitbart:


    "Ivanka Trump is reportedly calling members of Congress to feel out various gun control proposals and to figure out what needs to be done in order to get them passed."

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.br...-congressional-members-about-gun-control/amp/



    Please keep calling and emailing Trump to tell him to OPPOSE red flag laws and UBCs if he wants our votes in 2020.

    We aren't out of the woods yet!

    Ivanka is still pushing gun control!

    We need to keep the pressure on Trump (and on our senators and reps!

    Trump would know if someone on his staff, particularly her, were doing such a thing against his wishes.

    And you think he'd be against it? If Congress is pushing gun control, that's not Trump pushing gun control. But he would still get gun control in the end, which is what he wants. And it wouldn't be because of him, which is also what he wants.

    If Congress chooses to move forward on gun control, Trump can still vocally oppose the red flag law and UBCs during the debates in Congress.

    He should loudly and publicly make it crystal clear that he will veto ANY red flag law or UBC that passes Congress. This includes Lindsey Graham's plan to blackmail states into implementing their own red flag laws.

    If Congress nevertheless chooses to pass it, Trump must veto it immediately.

    The problem is, with a member of his family pushing for it, it may give cover to wimpy republicans and get enough votes to override a veto.

    Or this could be a distraction tactic by the Trump family. Get them talking about several approaches, then all of them get diluted.

    I don't doubt Ivanka wants gun control. The question is whether daddy can say no to his little girl.

    There are extraterrestial aliens reportedly living at Area 51.
    Reportedly, the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians.

    Either name the sources, or admit that it's hearsay.

    The % of women across the country who see the issue like members of these forums see the issue is going to be relatively small. And, as far as that goes, the rest of the country doesn't appear to be as solid on the issue as it was a few years back. I don't like it one bit, and I'm certain no one here likes it, but 'no-compromise' support has faded noticeably, IMO. Demographics are constantly changing. The NRA/La Pierre scandals certainly haven't helped, either. That said, we really don't know the specifics here, so I'd suggest holding fire until more is known.

    Is she asking members of congress what they think about pending legislation?

    Is that all that is being anonymously alleged?

    Would you rather she didn't ask?

    Considering her thoughts that we’ve heard on other issues I’d rather that she keeps the topic out of her mouth. Her politics are the complete antithesis of a majority of conservatives.

    How can I name the sources??

    They aren't my sources.

    I simply linked to the article from Breitbart.

    Why don't you write to the author of the article and ask him about his sources?
