I don't doubt that a bit. This transcript could prove useful when he reverts to regurgitating NRA and Republican talking points. The timing may depend on how loud the reaction is from Breitbart, etc., compared to the survivors and supporters.

[Edit to add: ]
Finished the thing.

It's theater. For all the racket the network news made about him "bucking" the NRA and Republicans, he didn't say a thing that will actually make a difference. Raising the age to 21 won't do diddly. Universal background checks may help, but Obama was mentioned as supporting it so TrumPutin will oppose after being reminded. The moron still wants to arm teachers.

4. Seems to me I've heard that song before.

Especially the "Bring me the bill" "Just bring me the bill" "I'll sign it"

Talk is cheap. Action takes guts. He does not have any.

5. He put on a great show, just like last time.

People will be impressed with his negotiating prowess.

Of course nobody will notice that he says the opposite the next day.

6. I saw it and was shocked--at how insane he is......

In a day or two when he wakes up he'll claim he never said any such thing about gun control.

7. Being on both sides of an issue maximizes popularity

Fact is people forget, and don't pay close attention. They just hear what they want to hear.
