Trump Releases His Plan for 2nd Amendmentů Leaves Millions Furious
Conservative Tribune ^

Posted on 11/19/2016 10:55:16 AM PST by Enlightened1

One common criticism of billionaire businessman and President-elect Donald Trump is that he far too often speaks in vague generalities and rarely offers specifics about where he stands on the issues.

That is no longer the case, at least regarding his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment, after Trump released his official policy position on his campaign website.

“The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period,” the position paper began.

Trump went on to explain that the right to keep and bear arms is a right that pre-exists both the government and the Constitution, noting that government didn’t create the right, nor can it take it away.
 
He also rightly 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, Trump proposed tougher enforcement of laws that are already on the books, rather than adding new gun control laws.
 

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.

Try this actually being the Founders plan. Not merely Trump’s plan.

And for every million unhappy theres at least ten million that are very happy.

Keeping violent criminals in prison for long periods of time? Why, that’s just crazy.

And all those people that were killed in Obama engineered mass false flag shootings over the last 8 years, died for double nothing.

What a window sticker that pic would make! Albeit, somewhat of a brick magnet.

Can anyone else think of another politician to whom this might apply? Hmmm. Anyone?

I am thrilled we finally have a President with common sense who can read plain English.

Shall not be infringed means exactly that.

He has suggested that.
It would take Congressional action, so we’ll see, but I am all in favor of that.
