NRA-ILA's Chris W. Cox Releases Statement on School Safety Report

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Chris W. Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, released the following statement on Tuesday:

“The National Rifle Association applauds the Trump administration’s Federal Commission on School Safety’s final report, issued today. The report includes a number of recommendations for which the NRA has been advocating for years, including reforming our mental health laws, strengthening school security, and addressing an increasingly violent culture. It also calls on the media to stop reporting the names and photos of mass murderers, which only encourages copycat behavior.

“Importantly, the commission expressly rejected age limitations on firearm purchases, which as the report explains in detail, have no real impact on crime.”

“Finally, we appreciate President Trump’s support for keeping firearms out of the hands of those who have been adjudicated by a court to be a danger to themselves or others in the form of state Extreme Risk Protection Orders — provided they include strong due process protections, require mental health treatmen, and include penalties against those who file frivolous charges to harass law-abiding citizens.”

“The recommendations in the commission report will go a long way towards preventing violence and making children safer in our schools.”

    Cox and LePierre should be ashamed to take their paychecks. They are the red coats of the gun crowd or the Benedict Arnolds, whichever you prefer. Maybe Soros or Bloomberg are paying them more than they get from NRA, you never know.
    When I heard Trump make that statement I thought he was just showing sympathy for the kids that got shot but my thoughts are changing.

    Yesterday I tried to remember the last time I was a member of the NRA. I couldn’t remember but it has to be at least ten years ago or so. They don’t know what “core values” is. They also are too concerned about what others think. I have no use for them.

    President Trump has lost my vote with his bump stock ban and support of gun violence restraining orders
    He has done more gun control the Obama was able to accomplish in 8 years!

    WRONG!! Trump has done more for the 2nd by far. While I too hate the idea of the bump stock ban, not for the item itself, but specifically for the potential “slippery slope” it might create, have you already forgotten about all the conservative justices Trump is pumping the Federal courts, and will continue to in the next 2 years, not including 2 already into the top court of the land? These judges will have more impact on the 2nd, and for far more years in the future, than any president. Take a breather friend. This ban can be taken… Read more »

    Oldmarine >>> David I agree with you, criticizing Trump for making some adjustments in his plans is the same as going into Combat. Plans got out the window after the first shot. Anyone thinks they can do better then step up. Talk is cheap actions speak. You want to make a difference then go after the Oath breakers and your troubles will get a little more thin. All our problems come from Politicians, Public Servants and Judges that violate the Constitution and laws already on the books for many years. If anyone transgresses against the Constitution and I mean anyone,… Read more »

    The NRA all together better get their act together, they keep pleading for money to fight these laws, all I see is how much money they are making and no action on taking down these 2nd Amendment rights, red flag, bump stocks, magazine capacity, and if it is a scary looking gun, it all boils down to they have totally dropped the ball, time for some big shake-ups at the NRA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “…provided they include strong due process protections, require mental health treatment, and include penalties against those who file frivolous charges to harass law-abiding citizens.”

    Well, if this is adhered to, these things won’t be so bad. It’s the potential for authorities to ignore this type of stuff that is scary.

    All states have these laws already, in one form or another. One of the primary differences with the new ones is confiscation first, adjudication later. But make no mistake LE can do this already with the court’s mandate.

    Blatantly false!!! Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs) or “red flag laws” exist only in very few states. Thanks to the NRA, they will soon exist in every state. Thanks to people like you, who spread false information, no one will fight them because they think these laws already exist.

    Currently, thirteen states have such legislation with more considering them! Just FYI!

    I hope the NRA is getting the message on ERPOs. these laws are the worst thing that could happen to gun owners and the NRA will lose a lot of members for endorsing them.

    This where President Trump stated “take the guns first then go to court”. THIS is what the NRA supports while sitting on their hands as new gun control is enacted unchallenged by them.
