Democratic leaders urged President Trump to support a House-passed bill expanding background checks for gun purchases.

“We believe that you have an historic opportunity to save lives, simply by reaffirming your clear support for strengthening background checks, which you have publicly supported before, which are supported by more than 90 percent of the public and which are ready to be brought to the Senate Floor,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wrote to Trump on Wednesday.

The article goes on to state the following:

Trump had been in negotiations with a bipartisan group of lawmakers on a measure to expand background checks.

“Unfortunately, there are indications you have reversed your support for passing gun violence prevention legislation,” Pelosi and Schumer wrote. “Sadly, it has been reported that this is because of concerns about your re-election and a desire to appease special interests like the NRA.”

“Leader McConnell has, once again, followed your example, and refused to bring commonsense, bipartisan, life-saving legislation passed by the House to the Floor,” they added.

Trump said Democrats were to blame for the stalled negotiations after they launched the impeachment inquiry, derailing negotiations.

    And what exactly have those spawns of Satan attached to that legislation? Don’t we already have background checks. I just had one to purchase a 9mm.
