This hasn’t received much press, probably because the media is too busy picking fights between Donald Trump and any available Republican candidate for President. Heaven forbid they discuss an issue.
Trump is solid on the Second Amendment. You can follow the link to his full position paper.
Appreciation for firearms, for the Second Amendment, and for hunting runs in the family. Here’s one of The Donald’s sons in Africa with a prize.
And here’s what Presidential candidate Trump had to say about the Second Amendment:
Enforce The Laws On The Books
We need to get serious about prosecuting violent criminals. The Obama administration’s record on that is abysmal. Violent crime in cities like Baltimore, Chicago and many others is out of control. Drug dealers and gang members are given a slap on the wrist and turned loose on the street. This needs to stop.
Defend The Rights of Law-Abiding Gun Owners
GUN AND MAGAZINE BANS. Gun and magazine bans are a total failure. That’s been proven every time it’s been tried. Opponents of gun rights try to come up with scary sounding phrases like “assault weapons”, “military-style weapons” and “high capacity magazines” to confuse people.
BACKGROUND CHECKS. There has been a national background check system in place since 1998. Every time a person buys a gun from a federally licensed gun dealer – which is the overwhelming majority of all gun purchases – they go through a federal background check. Study after study has shown that very few criminals are stupid enough to try and pass a background check.
NATIONAL RIGHT TO CARRY. The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states.
There’s more, but those are great highlights. Donald Trump is absolutely right on illegal immigration (I would like to quibble about the “big door in the fence” though) and he’s 100% on the Second Amendment.
