Trump says NRA could soften opposition to gun reforms after mass shootings

"Well he's been speaking to a lot of different people is visiting a Democrat is re speaking to Republicans is been speaking several times this week to the head of the NRA Wayne lapierre and he says that there's a general understanding that there needs to be common sense gun reforms he speaks of meaningful intelligent background checks course questions what do you mean Mr present by and when you say meaningful well he didn't say he also didn't directly and explain how he's going to get the NRA on board he says he expects the NRA will eventually come around if they aren't already around but he acknowledge the fact that the NRA has expressed some reticence in the way lapierre with whom the president has spoken repeatedly this week put out a statement yesterday which he called many of the gun measures being floated sound bite solutions and let's begin to this question of expanded background checks for years at the NRA's urging Republicans in the Senate have opposed the bipartisan to me mansion bill which would be an effort to expand background checks to cover most private gun sales the president however insists that he's going to get a bill passed and why because he said there's never been a president like president trump speaking in third person as he's apt to do but I am curious because my understanding is that the conversation with Mr lapierre in the president didn't go so well because Wayne said to the president that the base does not want background checks the president's base and he will not get the White House again if he alienates his base that's been his political strategy for re winning the White House that's right again the question of the details on this year background checks are already the law the question is how whites we know how how why should that blanket be spread right in particular the mansion to me bill would expand background checks to gun show sales between for example neighbors right private gun sales I if one neighbor has a right all that they want to sell to their neighbor under the to me mention bill would have to bring it to a licensed firearms dealer and have it sit there for three business days while the background check on the buyer is completed is that now there seems to be widespread bipartisan support for something like that but the eight Democrats would take even further and this is where things get even more complicated right you've got to the mansion which is a bipartisan bill that was proposed in the wake of the Newtown shooting six years ago and then you've got the fact that the house Democrats this year have passed bills that are even more stringent than to me mansion I mention the three day background check period house Democrats would expand that to ten business days and they would cover private gun sales between not just neighbors but also family members the to me mention bill has a car about for family members to the question is I if if mansion to meet the NRA comes around I mention to me where are the Democrats in the house are they going to come around on mention to me they've already moved beyond so this is not nearly as simple as the president makes it seem and the Senate leader Republican Mitch McConnell said yesterday he's not going to bring the Senate back earlier than expected because he said it would essentially be a waste of time what he wants to see first is an agreement and then I'll have about pride the gun sales what about places like Walmart selling guns that's been in the news today senator Warren Bernie Sanders saying stop selling guns where would that bill cover that type of gun sale well those those types of sales are already covered under background checks and that's why you have the NRA thing at the sound bites solution because you look at the particular circumstances of these most recent mass shootings every single one of those shooters underwent a background check and bought their firearms lawfully the question then becomes how might the lawn need to change the proposals that are so far being seen as most reasonable and likely to pass would expand background checks to those areas where they're not currently covered but as I mentioned in each of the circumstances we've been talking about just about every surface as we've been talking about these are gun sales that are conducted lawfully we have background checks the president suggested something else today which ultimately can be rather controversial and probably not very likely to pass at least it'll provoke some opposition and that is what he said he looked at the Dayton suitor situation where you headed former juvenile offender who apparently ran into trouble when he was a minor now we say apparently because we don't know the facts why because his record was expunged the president said state do you should no longer expunge the records when you turn eighteen well that's a pretty fundamental question of law presence as it should be done away with that's not gonna happen very easily all right Stephen we need an hour but I'm gonna let you go have a nice weekend thank you CBS is Stephen Portnoy's speaking with WBZ's Laurie Kirby now Portnoy during his comments
