Trump to Meet With NRA To Discuss Gun Control

Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump will be meeting with the NRA to discuss prohibiting people on either the terrorist watch list or the no-fly list to buy guns. The NRA endorsed Trump at their annual meeting last month.

The no-fly list and the terrorist watch list are not the same thing--the no-fly list contains about 40,000 names (including Sen. Ted Kennedy at one point), and the terrorist watch list has about a million people on it. Simply being on the list is not an indication of guilt, and names are added and removed from the list regularly. Omar Mateen, the terrorist behind Sunday morning's attack at Pulse nightclub, was removed from the list in 2014.

Trump has previously expressed support for banning people on the no-fly list from buying guns.
