Many of us are particularly scared of a Donald Trump presidency. There is one group that is very happy with the idea: the gun nuts. He was endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), and he claimed that his opponent, Hillary Clinton, would take everyone’s guns away.
President Obama responded to this idea in an interview with Rhude:
“First of all, the notion that I or Hillary or Democrats or whoever you want to choose are hell-bent on taking away folks’ guns is just not true.
“And I don’t care how many times the NRA says it. I’m about to leave office. There have been more guns sold since I have been president than just about any time in U.S. history. There are enough guns for every man, woman and child in this country.
“And at no point have I ever, ever proposed confiscating guns from responsible gun owners. So it’s just not true.”
Trump used this “everyone’s going to take your guns” rhetoric often during his campaign. These people have been saying that for years, and it’s just not going to happen. Repealing the Second Amendment isn’t even up to the president. It requires a vote in Congress and 3/4 of states to ratify it. Borrow Mr Khan’s Constitution and educate yourselves.
