Trump: Congress discussing \'meaningful\' gun background checks, NRA will have input

WASHINGTON President Donald Trump said Friday that congressional leaders are talking about new "meaningful background checks" for gun buyers but with input from the National Rifle Association and other gun groups that oppose current legislative proposals.

Trump predicted ongoing talks would produce "a very good package" for Congress to consider when it returns from summer recess in September. He also suggested there is a better "feeling" for getting something done than after a school shooting that killed 17 students and staff members in Parkland, Florida last year.

"We dont want guns in the hands of the wrong people," Trump told reporters before departing the White House for a pair of fundraisers in New York.

Trump called for "common-sense background" checks, but did not detail what that might include. But he suggested the NRA would have input on whatever package emerges.

Well see where the NRA is ... but we have to have meaningful background checks," Trump said, adding that the gun group has "good people" who want to do the right thing.

"I have a great relationship with the NRA," he said.

Earlier Friday, Trump said in a pair of tweets that "serious discussions are taking place between House and Senate leadership on meaningful Background Checks," adding that "guns should not be placed in the hands of mentally ill or deranged people."

Trump also acknowledged his talks this week with Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the NRA, and other gun rights groups in the wake of last weekend's mass shootings in Texas and Ohio. Trump said "their very strong views can be fully represented and respected" during the debate over gun policy.

"I am the biggest Second Amendment person there is, but we all must work together for the good and safety of our Country," Trump said.
