America - Trump Releases His Plan For Second Amendment, Leaves Millions Furious

US President Elect Donald Trump


A common criticism of Donald Trump has been that he tends to speak in vague generalities rather than offering specifics about where he stands on important issues. Now that he is the official president-elect, this is no longer the case.
At least, he has become significantly more vocal when it comes to his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment. He just released his official policy position on his campaign website.
The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear,” the position paper begins. “The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.”
Trump then goes on to explain that this right pre-exists both the government and the Constitution. In Trump’s eyes, the government didn’t create the right, nor can it take it away. Trump calls the right as “America’s first freedom,” designed to protect all the other rights we so value.
Trump then calls for tougher enforcement of laws that exist today, rather than adding new gun control laws. He cites a successful program in Richmond, Virginia, that sentenced gun criminals to mandatory minimum five-year sentences in federal prison. Trump argues that crime rates will fall dramatically if criminals are taken off the streets for “length periods of time.”

Trump proposes strengthening and expanding laws allowing law-abiding gun owners to defends themselves from armed criminals, without fear of repercussion from the government.

To address the many incidents of shooters with clear mental issues, Trump proposes fixing the nation’s broken mental health system by increasing treatment opportunities for the non-violent mentally ill. He also suggests removing people who pose a danger to themselves and others from the streets.
Another point of contention has been gun and magazine bans, which Trump calls “pointless and ineffective.” Instead, his plan focuses on fixing the background check system already in place.
Finally, Trump proposes a national right to carry and lifting the prohibition on military members carrying weapons on military bases and in recruiting centers.
Trump’s bold and fearless defense of our Second Amendment rights is part of the reason the National Rifle Association endorsed him—and it’s good to see he is staying true to his promises.
Liberals are outraged, of course, but that is to be expected.
