Just a WAG but it sounds like Trump is talking about getting more mental health data into NICS.

Despite what the liberal tabloids scream on a daily basis, Trump isn't stupid.

Unlike the never Trumper's, he's not going to stab one of his most loyal bases in the back.

I don't know that I share your faith. I will vote for him, feel he is doing a great job, respect him,... but I don't know that I ever will fully trust him.

I suppose that depends on what "trust" means. I completely trust Trump to be Trump......

Trump has my vote. In the 43 years that I've been voting, he has done more of what he said he would do during his campaign, than any other person I've voted for. And, he's done most of it, with the Other Party, bitching, screaming, crying and lying. ;)

I don't like Trump.
He's an ass.
The only good thing I thought about him before the election was that he was pissing off the right people.
Since?
He's been doing what he said he'd do, and most importantly, he's appointing judges that understand the proper role of the judiciary.
I still don't like him.

I can't say I like the man either.

But he's been effective, and he doesn't allow the left to get away with their BS.
