One well-known criticism of presidential candidate Donald Trump is the fact that he speaks in vague generalities and seldomly presents specifics regarding where he stands on the issues.
This is no longer the case, at least concerning his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment.
Mr. Trump just unveiled his official policy position on his campaign website.
The position paper began with, “The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.”
Donald Trump went on to make clear the fact that “the right to keep and bear arms” is a right that pre-exists both the government and the Constitution.
Remember, the present government did not create the right.
They even can not take it away either.
Our founding Fathers created the right / constitution.
Trump also appropriately denoted the Second Amendment as “America’s first freedom.”
Pointing out that it helps protect all of the other rights we hold dear.
In order to protect and defend that right, Donald Trump proposed tougher enforcement of laws which are already on the books, as opposed to adding new gun control laws.
Citing an effective program in Richmond, Virginia, that sentenced gun criminals to mandatory minimum five-year sentences in federal prison; Trump acclaimed that crime rates will fall considerably when criminals are removed from the streets for extended intervals of time.
He additionally proposed strengthening and expanding laws permitting law-abiding gun owners to protect themselves from criminals utilizing their own guns.
Using them without having worry of repercussion from the government.
Also acclaiming that several of the latest high-profile shooters possessed mental problems that should have been dealt with.
In addition, he proposed repairing our nation’s broken mental health system by increasing treatment possibilities for the “non-violent” mentally ill.
Nonetheless the removal of people who pose a danger to themselves and others from
Presidential elect Trump would certainly do away with unnecessary and useless gun and magazine bans.
He suggested fixing the present background check system already in place.
Rather than expanding a broken system.
Additionally, Trump proposed a national right to carry, a national concealed carry reciprocity law that will persuade states to recognize the concealed carry permits of any other state.
Specifically like drivers licenses from anywhere are acknowledged by all states today.
Ultimately, he will lift the prohibition on military members carrying weapons on military bases and in recruiting centers.
Enabling trained military members to carry weapons to protect themselves from attacks by terrorists, criminals and the mentally unstable, as we have seen a short while ago.
Below are some of the things that Trump mentioned the other day.
At the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum at the National Rifle Association’s annual meetings:
“The Second Amendment is under a threat like never before.” “Crooked Hillary Clinton is the most anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment candidate ever to run for office.” “And as I said before, she wants to abolish the Second Amendment.” “She wants to take your guns away.”
Prior to him speaking there, Donald Trump was officially endorsed by the NRA, calling it a “fantastic honor.”
Trump said Hillary wishes to invert the 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller U.S. Supreme Court judgement that established the individual right to keep and bear arms.
He said, “Hillary said the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. That’s bad.”
This is fantastic, and all those who treasure our right to keep and bear arms ought to be pleased by Trump’s stated position on the Second Amendment.
Needless to say, liberal anti-gunners will detest this, nonetheless their opinion on the subject is of little concern to us “people of the gun,” of which Donald Trump is apparently one.
Now that he has calmed down his tone, and hasn’t committed any crimes like Hitlery did when she was Secretary of State; regardless if you are democratic or republican, would you want a president for the constitution than against it. IE: Hitlery Clinton?
We would like to know what you think.
