President Obama has promised to make 2016 the year he uses ever executive action possible to make more gun control happen. Now, one of the single biggest voices in the presidential candidate arena is speaking out.
Donald Trump has vowed to “unsign” any executive orders Obama plans to put into place, threatening to undermine the president’s “legacy”.
According to CNN, Trump told a crowd in Mississippi that he would guard against infringement to the 2nd amendment:
“There’s an assault on the Second Amendment. You know Obama’s going to do an executive order and really knock the hell out of it,” Trump said. “You know, the system’s supposed to be you get the Democrats, you get the Republicans, and you make deals. He can’t do that. He can’t do that. So he’s going to sign another executive order having to do with the Second Amendment, having to do with guns. I will veto. I will unsign that so fast.”
In a CBS interview with Face the Nation Trump said that we have enough gun laws in this country and what we need is more enforcement of current laws instead of making new ones.
“All they want to do is blame the guns. And it is not the gun that pulls the trigger.” He said.
Trump did however initially support a firearm ban on those who are on the no-fly list saying,
“Well, I’d certainly take a look at it. I would,” Trump said following the San Bernardino attack. “I’m very strong into the whole thing with Second Amendment — but if you can’t fly, and if you’ve got some really bad — I would certainly look at that very hard.”
President Obama is not the only one Trump is calling out on gun control. Trump is also calling out presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton. According to Breitbart.com,
On January 3 Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump used a Facebook post to call out Hillary Clinton’s hypocrisy in telling the American people that guns “don’t keep you safe” while simultaneously surrounding herself with “heavily armed bodyguards.”
