Donald Trump is doubling down on a no-gun ban for those on terror or no-fly lists, asserting anyone with "even an inclination" toward terrorism should be restricted.

He also thinks federal authorities should begin profiling Muslims on flights and in other areas of US society.

Trump argued in a interview with CBS News' "Face the Nation" that profiling is an appropriate terrorism-fighting tool.

"I think profiling is something we're going to have to start thinking about as a country," he said. "I hate the concept of profiling, but we have to start using common sense.”

He added that other countries, including Israel, profile “and they do it successfully.”

In an interview with ABC News' "This Week," the GOP presumptive nominee is potentially at odds with some Republicans.

"We have to make sure that people that are terrorists or have even an inclination toward terrorism cannot buy weapons, guns," Trump said in an interview that aired Sunday.

Pressed if whether that meant people on the no-fly or terror watch list should not be able to buy a gun, Trump responded, "I'd like to see that, and I'd like to say it. And it's simpler. It's just simpler."

Trump has said he'll meet with the NRA to discuss his proposal.

The NRA tweeted its position is ""no guns for terrorists — period. Due process & right to self-defense for law-abiding Americans." 
The NRA endorsed Trump last month.
