Following the NRA’s lead, the White House said it was open to a discussion of banning bump stocks, while repeating its earlier statement that the Trump administration is focused on “healing and uniting the country” via unspecified means.

While Guns Down’s message is more bold than that of other gun control groups, it is not far out of line with the desires of many Americans who want to keep their families safe from gun violence. As the Guardian reported:

Indeed, following the shooting in Orlando, Florida that killed 49 people last year, 57 percent of Americans polled by CBS News said they supported a ban on assault weapons.

But as Common Dreams reported on Wednesday, Americans’ views on gun control tend to be more moderate when a mass shooting has not just taken place, suggesting that the time to ban assault weapons—and not just bump stocks—is now.
