At the 2016 Democrat convention, when Hillary Clinton was coronated as the next president because only Deplorables would vote for Donald Trump, she declared: “I’m not here to repeal the Second Amendment.

Fast-forward to last month’s back-to-back mass murders in Texas and Ohio by assailants using firearms. Predictably, Democrats are using those rare but high-profile attacks as a pretext for new gun-control laws. In response, Trump declared he would work with Democrats to see if there was common ground on Demo legislation for background checks, which might have an incremental impact on accessibility to firearms by those who will either harm themselves or others.
