Trump: Protecting Our Second Amendment Rights Will Make America Great Again

Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump released his position on the Second Amendment. Trump’s policy states in part:

The Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that belongs to all law-abiding Americans. The Constitution doesn’t create that right – it ensures that the government can’t take it away.

[ … ]

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.

[ … ]

All of the tragic mass murders that occurred in the past several years have something in common – there were red flags that were ignored. We can’t allow that to continue.

[ … ]

Gun and magazine bans are a total failure. That’s been proven every time it’s been tried.

[ … ]

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.

[ … ]

Banning our military from carrying firearms on bases and at recruiting centers is ridiculous. We train our military how to safely and responsibly use firearms, but our current policies leave them defenseless.

    We need this… we need that…. blah, blah, blah… Tickles the ears but…

    Enforce the laws on the books… He sights some law that was temporarily used stating that it “reduced gun murders by 60%”, failing to mention that murders, in general were not affected, then in other sections talks about, “When one of these tragedies occurs, we can count on two things: one, that opponents of gun rights will immediately exploit it to push their political agenda; and two, that none of their so-called “solutions” would have prevented the tragedy in the first place. They’ve even admitted it.”, so, Mr. Trump, which is it…? Do gun control laws really work to curtail crime or not?… Answer: NO, they don’t so don’t talk to me about how they do.

    National right to carry… We already have a “National Right to Carry” as called out by the Second Amendment. Concealed carry “permits” are ALREADY an infringement that only the law abiding will obey AND, as soon as they apply for the permit… they are in the database as a gun owner.
    Yes, our right to keep and bear arms is about self defense… against ALL comers, very much meant to include a tyrannical government, at any level. Concealed carry permits are nothing more than a tax on our rights and a way to know who is personally armed…. Sounds more, to me, like he wants a Federal database when, in reality, most of the gun laws on the books, right now, especially at the federal level, shouldn’t be there. The federal government, if it does anything about it, should be putting state’s that require permits on notice that they are violating the second amendment.

    “Get tough on violent criminals”… More harrumphing… Since when is criminal law enforcement a federal issue unless a federal law has been broken? The vast majority of criminal prosecutions are (and should be) the states’ responsibility. What’s he want to do about it…? Make anything that might be called a violent crime a federal offense…? Think about how huge THAT would make the DOJ.

    Mental health/background checks… Expand treatment programs??? It’s the freakin’ “tratment programs” that are sending these people over the edge. ALL of those recent mass shootings were committed by people ALREADY under a psychiatrist’s “care”. The drugs that are used have side effects that are devastating. In many places, right now, if you have ever been prescribed certain anti-depressnts, you’ll never buy a gun “legally” so, if you’re going through a rough emotional moment (nasty divorce, loss of a loved one, etc.) and you’re so much as loosing sleep over it, DO NOT see your doctor – he/she will prescribe some sort of “happy pill” and your right to keep and bear arms is toast.

    Gun and magazine bans… “The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own.” … What’s YOUR definition of “good, honest people”, Mr. Trump? How about that lady in Jersey? You know, the one you bribed the City “government” into forcing her out of her home so you could build a parking lot??? What say she had lost that case… and , defending her property, that YOU just took away, using “legal” but absolutely corrupt and trannical means, met you and/or your puppets at the door, with a Thompson 45?

    Mr. Trump… You KNOW politicians are bought and sold because you do it. You KNOW about “crony capitalism” because you participate in it… You KNOW about coercion because you use it… You epitomize what is wrong with this country and why it’s so easy, for so many, to despise “rich people”. You and your ilk give wealthy, successful people a VERY bad name.
