For those critics who say Trump speaks in vague generalities and doesn’t offer specifics, your criticism has been heard, and answered. Trump just released his official policy for the Second Amendment on his campaign website. And it is something you will love. Come on, something that starts with this line…
“The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period,”
…has to be gold. Just check it out.
Trump’s idea of protecting and defending the second amendment is by having tougher enforcement of the laws that are ALREADY on the books. Instead of adding more laws that will do nothing.
Citing a successful program in Richmond, Virginia, that sentenced gun criminals to mandatory minimum five-year sentences in federal prison, Trump noted that crime rates will fall dramatically when criminals are taken off the streets for lengthy periods of time.
Trump also proposed strengthening and expanding laws allowing law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves from criminals using their own guns, without fear of repercussion from the government.
Noting that many of the recent high-profile shooters had clear mental problems that should have been addressed, Trump proposed fixing our nation’s broken mental health system by increasing treatment opportunities for the non-violent mentally ill, but removing from the streets those people who pose a danger to themselves and others.
Trump would do away with pointless and ineffective gun and magazine bans and suggested fixing the current background check system already in place, rather than expanding a broken system.
Furthermore, Trump proposed a national right to carry, a national concealed carry reciprocity law that would compel states to recognize the concealed carry permits of any other state, exactly as drivers licenses from anywhere are accepted by all states today.
Finally, Trump would lift the prohibition on military members carrying weapons on military bases and in recruiting centers, allowing trained military members to carry weapons to protect themselves from attacks by terrorists, criminals and the mentally unstable, as we have seen recently.
President Trump has already fulfilled many of his promises he made on his campaign trail.
Let us remind him of these promises and make sure gun control has less of a winning chance. Let us make it IMPOSSIBLE for Liberals to hinder this freedom. Let us stand together to make America great again.
