"But I told them, we're going to have to toughen them up because it doesn't make anybody look good", Trump said of regulations that could prevent shootings. And I think a lot of people are going to be opposed to it. "I can't get on a plane with a bottle of water". The NRA wants to do the right thing. Barring them from also buying rifles or shotguns would deprive them "of their constitutional right to self-protection", the NRA statement said. "But if he had a firearm, he wouldn't have had to run, he would have shot him, and that would have been the end of it".
