President Donald Trump gave emphatic support for the NRA Thursday, just hours after tweeting support for a pair of gun control measures.

‘What many people don’t understand, or don’t want to understand, is that Wayne, Chris and the folks who work so hard at the @NRA are Great People and Great American Patriots. They love our Country and will do the right thing. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!’ Trump tweeted.

He was referencing Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president of the powerful gun lobby, and Chris Cox, the executive director.

Trump didn’t elaborate on what it would mean for them to ‘do the right thing.’

Less than two hours before, Trump tweeted that he would be ‘strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health. Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks!’

The NRA has yet to issue a position on Trump’s call for a ban on bump stocks, where are used to make a semi-automatic weapon fire like an automatic. The Las Vegas shooter used the device.

LaPierre told CPAC Thursday the group would seek ‘real solutions’ to safety problems, and rejected new efforts to restrict guns. He called gun-free zones ‘wide open targets’ – a position echoed by Trump.

Trump didn’t amplify his comment on raising the age to 21, but he was likely referring to regulations that many states have on long guns including rifles. Many states also have 18 year age limits on handgun purchases.
