President Trump stunned Republicans on Wednesday by embracing gun control and urging a group of lawmakers at the White House to resurrect gun safety legislation that has been opposed for years by the National Rifle Association and the vast majority of the GOP.

At various times, the President called for comprehensive gun control legislation that would expand background checks to weapons purchased at gun shows and on the internet, keep guns from mentally ill people, secure schools and restrict gun sales for some young adults. 

At one point, the President even suggested that law enforcement authorities should have the power to seize guns from mentally ill people or others who could present a danger without first going to court.

“I like taking the guns early,” said Trump, adding, “Take the guns first, go through due process second.”
