Trump’s Second Amendment

Trump has spoken out about gun control and for millions of Americans, there will be hell to pay.  His specific policy position on the Second Amendment is well thought out and demonstrates a clear grasp of the Constitution.

“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 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 has listed on his website his beliefs as well as what he believes needs to be done to uphold the 2nd Amendment.

  1. Tougher enforcement of laws that are already on the books, rather than adding new gun control laws.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

The left will be ticked off beyond belief, which is awesome!  And for those of us who cherish the Constitution, it is a beautiful thing to have specifics that speak to the very heart of the Second Amendment. Trumps understanding that this right is “‘America’s first freedom,' and pointing out that it helps protect all of the other rights we hold dear” is encouraging.
