Gun Owners Need to Tell President to Oppose Gun Control

The Hill is reporting that Senate Majority Leader McConnell has set an important condition for the Senate to take up gun control, Presidential support.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday stressed that President Trump's support is the key to a gun reform bill getting a vote on the Senate floor in the wake of recent mass shootings.

McConnell, during an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, said the Trump administration “is in the process of studying what they're prepared to support, if anything.”
“I expect to get an answer to that next week,” McConnell said. “If the president is in favor of a number of things that he has discussed openly and publicly and I know that if we pass it, it will become law, I'll put it on the floor.”
If you haven't already, contact the White House and politely urge the President to oppose all further restrictions on your gun rights.  Remind him that none of the proposals being discussed would have prevented any of the recent shootings.  Without Presidential support, the Senate will likely not take up the House passed gun control bills.
