President Donald Trump turned a lot of heads when he suggested, during a meeting with lawmakers on Wednesday, that law enforcement should "take the guns first, go through due process second," when it comes to people who could be mentally ill.
One of those heads belonged to NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch, who responded directly to the president on Fox News tonight.
Echoing a statement released by the NRA, Loesch said the meeting "made for really good TV," but that some of the ideas discussed would "make for really bad policy that is not going to protect our kids." She went on to stress to Trump that America "must respect and protect the rights of law-abiding Americans all across the country who right now being punished for the failures of government."
"I want to be really clear what we're talking about here," Loesch said. "We are talking about punishing innocent Americans, stripping from them constitutional rights without due process."
