Anti-gun-violence leaders in Minnesota appear hopeful after President Trump said today (Fri) he believes he can rally Republicans around stronger federal laws on background checks.

The Reverend Nancy Nord Bence with Protect Minnesota says:
“We encourage the president to keep his word on this, and we do recognize that — although there’s been some vacillation in the past — the American people are getting more and more angry about this and are expecting our leaders to lead.”

The President said today he’s assured the N-R-A its views will be “fully represented and respected.”
