BREAKING: President Donald Trump just made an announcement about gun control that has liberals cheering.

The White House announced on Sunday night that President Donald Trump will be supporting a push to improve the nation’s system of background checks for would-be gun buyers, days after the shooting massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Fox News reported that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that Trump talked to Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn on Friday about a bill the Texas Republican had introduced alongside Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., which would “improve federal compliance with criminal background check legislation.”

“While discussions are ongoing and revisions are being considered, the president is supportive of efforts to improve the federal background check system,” Sanders said.

This comes after Nikolas Cruz, 19, walked into the school on Valentine’s Day and opened fire, killing 17 people and injuring 14 more. Trump took to Twitter the day after the attack to single out mental health as the main factor behind it.

“So many signs that the Florida shooter was mentally disturbed, even expelled from school for bad and erratic behavior. Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem. Must always report such instances to authorities, again and again!” the president tweeted.

He later took to Twitter again to blame the FBI for not acting on warnings the bureau received about Cruz.

“Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!” Trump wrote.

Of course, liberals are trying to make this about gun control and are calling on Trump to issue some kind of gun ban. The White House’s announcement last night indicates that Trump is open to submitting to liberals on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems we may soon find ourselves on a slippery slope that could end with our Second Amendment rights being seriously infringed upon.
