埃尔帕索事件后两周,唐纳德·特朗普退出背景调查

2019-08-17 15:27   美国新闻网   - 

 
 
 唐纳德·特朗普总统似乎正在考虑背景调查和其他枪支政策改革,但他已经放弃了这个话题,现在公开讨论“危险信号”立法。

  红旗规则是州一级的法律,允许家庭成员,在某些情况下,执法官员获得临时法院命令,禁止被视为威胁的个人拥有枪支。它们已经在17个州出版了。

  据报道,总统现在没有与国会合作制定全面的立法,而是敦促代表们与他们的州政府官员合作,将这些“极端风险保护令”写进书里。

  本月德克萨斯州埃尔帕索和俄亥俄州代顿发生致命大规模枪击事件后不久,总统告诉记者,他将考虑支持更严格的背景调查。

  特朗普8月9日在白宫对记者表示:“在背景调查方面,我们非常支持真正常识性、明智性、重要的背景调查。”。总统说他已经和全国步枪协会谈过了,但是这个话题“不是全国步枪协会的问题,无论是共和党还是民主党”,参议院领袖米奇·麦康奈尔“完全同意”。他说,“我一直在等你的电话。”"

  但总统此后没有提及背景调查,并明显避免在昨晚的集会上提出这个问题,而是将注意力集中在法院和州。

  尽管如此,一些共和党人和全国步枪协会认为总统做得太多了。本周早些时候,总统在推特上说,美国有线电视新闻网主持人克里斯·科莫身体不适,因为他对一个称他为“弗雷多”的起哄者大喊大叫,他认为这是意大利人的诽谤。

   “克里斯·科莫会因为他最近的咆哮而被警告吗?肮脏的语言和完全失控。他不应该被允许拥有任何武器。他疯了!”总统发推特说。NRA利用这条推文反对红旗法。

  “POTUS用一条推文解释了红旗法是如何被滥用的,”前NRA发言人达纳·洛奇推文说。

  保守派电台主持人史蒂夫·戴克(Steve Deace)也向特朗普发出了直播警告。他说:“当你因为三个州总计不到78,000张选票而当选总统时,你不需要在一个他们担心会失去的问题上过分疏远你的基础。”。

  一些极右国会议员也反对任何可能的立法。肯塔基州众议院自由党团成员托马斯·马西(Thomas Massie)在推特上对总统说,“如果你为了赢得选举而放弃原则,那么在第一次投票之前,你已经输了。红旗法违反正当程序和第二修正案。

  2018年佛罗里达州帕克兰高中枪击事件后,唐纳德·特朗普总统也迅速讨论了在美国限制枪支使用的问题。“先拿枪,然后通过正当程序,”他说。

  枪击事件后,总统没有提出或通过任何重要的立法。

TWO WEEKS AFTER EL PASO, DONALD TRUMP BACKS AWAY FROM BACKGROUND CHECKS

  President Donald Trump, who appeared to be considering background checks and other gun policy reform, has backed away from the topic and is now openly discussing "red flag" legislation instead.

  Red flag rules are state-level laws that allow family members and, in certain cases, law enforcement officials, to obtain temporary court orders to bar individuals deemed as a threat from possessing firearms. They're already on the books in 17 states.

  Instead of working with Congress on comprehensive legislation the president is now reportedly urging Representatives to work with their state officials to get these "extreme risk  protection orders" on the books.

  Shortly after the deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, this month, the president told reporters he would consider backing more stringent background checks.

  "On background checks, we have tremendous support for really common-sense, sensible, important background checks," Trump told reporters at the White House on August 9. The president said he had spoken with the NRA but that the topic "isn't a question of NRA, Republican or Democrat," and that Senate Leader Mitch McConnell was "totally on board. He said, 'I've been waiting for your call.'"

  But the president has since failed to mention background checks, and noticeably avoided raising the issue at a rally last night, instead focusing his attention on the courts and states.

  Still, some Republicans and the NRA think the president is doing too much. Earlier this week, the president tweeted that CNN host Chris Cuomo was unwell because he yelled at a heckler who referred to him as "Fredo," which he took as an Italian slur.

  "Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn't be allowed to have any weapon. He's nuts!" The president tweeted. The NRA used the tweet to fight against red flag laws.

  "With one tweet POTUS explains how red flag laws can and will be abused," former NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch tweeted.

  Conservative radio host Steve Deace also gave an on-air warning to Trump. "When you're president because of a grand total of less than 78,000 votes spread out over three states, you don't have to alienate too much of your base on an issue they care about to lose," he said.

  Some far-right members of Congress are also opposed to any possible legislation. House Liberty Caucus member Thomas Massie of Kentucky tweeted to the president that "if you give up your principles to win an election, you've already lost before the first vote is cast. Red Flag laws violate due process and the 2nd Amendment."

  After the 2018 high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, President Donald Trump was also quick to discuss limiting access to guns in the United States. "Take the guns first, go through due process second," he said.

  No significant legislation was floated by the president or passed following the shooting.
