Washington - President Donald Trump is urging Republicans to set aside efforts to expand the concealed carrying of firearms in legislation pending in Congress.

He is telling lawmakers considering ways to respond to the deadly Florida school shooting, “You’ll never get it passed.”

Trump says the concealed carry provision is a “whole new ballgame” and should be in a separate bill.

The House approved the bill late last year as part of a broader package that also expanded gun rights by requiring states to recognize conceal-carry permits issued by other states.

Some House Republicans are resistant to separating the two issues, as is likely in the Senate.

He also said that the age for buying firearms should be raised to 21, and I agree wholeheartedly. I hope he sticks to it.

Think about a 20 year old woman who is living alone and needs a rifle to protect herself from burglaries or an abusive ex boyfriend. When seconds matter, the Police are just minutes away. Hashem Yishmor.
