President Trump has emphasized that the importance of Building the Wall to prevent crime and drug traffic in America. He has now received the OK from the Supreme Court to acquire $2.5 billion for this project. However it is clear that only a small percent of crime and homicide in America is connected to illegal immigration. Now is the time for President Trump to complete the job of stopping crime in America through repealing the 2nd Amendment. President Trump during a bi-partisan meeting with members of congress in February spoke on school and community safety at the White House. He showed that he is aware of the problems of gun traffic and is in favor of curtailing gun violence. Trump has been supported by the National Rifle Association which makes it difficult for him to work for gun control.
Trump’s relationship with the National Rifle Association is showing in his hesitance to take action on gun control and only seeking minor changes which would not solve the problem, such as background checks. He hasn’t really tried to close the gun show loophole. His plans to build the wall have taken priority. Now is the time to confront him on the issue of Gun Control. Without putting pressure on him he is not going anywhere.

Permission to carry guns in Israel was once much more lenient than it is today. Settlers were allowed to carry even machine guns. After they were misused against Arabs today guns are tightly controlled and carefully tracked by the State. In the past people visiting Israel would see soldiers on the bus carrying weapons. America has police carrying weapons on the street on patrol, and police cars circling the cities ready to be called on alert. You don’t see soldiers in America like in Israel. When there is an emergency like a terrorist attack it is good to see a civilian in the area carrying a gun. Israel controls firearms even so that it is difficult or impossible for the Arab population to acquire firearms. Instead they use knives as weapons to kill. If they had firearms, they could do much more damage.
