El Paso (AP) - Following the devastating raids in El Paso and Dayton, pressure is mounting on US President Donald Trump to step up arms legislation in the country. When visiting the president in the two cities, politicians urgently demanded strict background checks for gun buyers and a ban on assault rifles in the country. Trump commented on background checks for gun owners, but left it open to what extent. He dismissed the calls for a ban on rapid-fire weapons as non-majority.
