AUSTIN, Texas (AP) The National Rifle Association said Tuesday it will never sell guns that could be used in mass shootings in the U.S. and abroad, and would instead focus on training and developing better security measures.
The NRA statement on gun safety comes as President Donald Trump and the National Rifle Associations top leaders are in Florida to promote a plan to curb gun violence.
Trump has urged Congress to enact tougher gun laws.
The NRA has repeatedly called for stronger gun laws, saying that mass shootings happen with a high frequency.
The association said in a statement that its efforts will include the development of “an efficient and robust means to track and respond to firearms transactions through secure, encrypted digital channels.”
The NRA is a top supporter of Trump, who has vowed to crack down on illegal guns in the country, and has also promised to expand background checks and limit gun purchases to a certain amount of time.
