“I call on the Congress to enact Red Flag laws/Extreme Risk Protection Orders in every state, increase resources dedicated to mental health support nationwide and close background check loopholes”.

He feels that this step would negatively affect the popularity of the Republican Party. Donald Trump Jr also feels that it would be an infringement civil liberties of gun owners and it would hit the party through them.
At a recent fundraiser, Donald Trump had praised Donald Trump Jr and said:
‘he knows more about guns than anyone I know.”
Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the National Rifle Association had also warned Donald Trump that implementation of background checks would nullify their support for his party.
