Following the Orlando terror attack, where an Islamic terrorist killed 49 people, GOP nominee Donald Trump has announced that he will be meeting with the National Rifle Association (NRA) to discuss gun policy.
But Trump upset a number of conservatives when he revealed exactly what he and the NRA would be disusing.
I will be meeting with the NRA, who has endorsed me, about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no fly list, to buy guns.

The statement left Twitter users confused. Is Trump looking to ban those individuals from getting guns or is he looking to fight the proposal?
Supporting the gun ban for individuals on the terror watch list is not out-of-line for Trump, as he supported the same position last November.
Trump backed a gun ban for ppl on terror watch list last November https://t.co/jWoIhJURiL

Still, a number of conservatives were angry about the announcement and took to Twitter to blow off steam.
Wow. Just… wow. https://t.co/h5WBe6JJmX

If Trump supports this plan, that would put him in line with Democrats in Congress https://t.co/79Pw4FUSBW

I hope they set you straight. NO CITIZEN should be denied their rights, w/o DUE PROCESS! Many probs w/ these lists! https://t.co/GyVIoqKEfr

The problem is that this takes away someone's 2nd amendment rights without due process. https://t.co/WXO61rc6xo

Maybe the NRA can educate you about the Fifth Amendment. And the no-fly list. https://t.co/hsvDUp03fh

This probably creates more heartburn for Rs in Congress than any of the bad things Trump said in the last week. https://t.co/yCmNxf0Kps
