Schumer Statement Responding to President Trump's Meeting with the NRA

March 2, 2018
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the president’s meeting yesterday with the NRA. 
"President Trump should go with his instincts, not the clarion and destructive call of the NRA. He knows instinctively that this is the right thing to do both substantively, because it will save tens of thousands of lives, and politically because over three quarters of the American people support it. If he continues to bow to his right wing ringmasters, we will get nothing done on guns and his presidency will continue to fail."
