Donald Trump’s plans for the Second Amendment once he’s in office is leaving many liberals outraged.

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

In light of that, Trump is calling for an expansion of gun rights, making conceal carry permits available nation wide. He also is calling for the elimination of gun and magazine bans, calling them a “total failure.”

“Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own,” Trump wrote.

“Opponents of gun rights try to come up with scary sounding phrases like ‘assault weapons’, ‘military-style weapons’ and ‘high capacity magazines’ to confuse people,” Trump wrote Friday. “What they’re really talking about are popular semi-automatic rifles and standard magazines that are owned by tens of millions of Americans.”

Trump, who has a concealed carry permit himself, says that they should be issued by the states in the same manner as a driver’s license.

“If we can do that for driving — which is a privilege, not a right — then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege,” Trump said.

Trump then went on to say that the Second Amendment is “America’s first freedom,” pointing out that it helps protect all of the other rights we hold dear.

VIA Reagan Coalition:

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.

Sounds like the perfect policy to me. Do you agree? Let us know in the comments.

The only thing I disagree with is the Gov’t issued ID/Permit. The 2nd Amendment IS our permit. I commend him on his understanding of and support for the #2A, but if you’re going to follow it to it’s true intent, then I don’t want or need anything from the Gov’t giving me permission.

And really, if you drive very often you realize that just because you managed to get a license does not mean you are good at it. So a license provides what ?

The national permit to carry provides ID fir law enforcement to quickly verify you haven’t list the right to carry. There has to be some mechanism to sort out who can and who cannot carry a firearm in public.

We need to be specific. The right to bear arms is just that, a right, included within that as a part of it is the right to openly carry a firearm. Concealed carry is not necessarily a part of it. Yeah, I’ll get some people yelling at me, but wait just a bit cause there are arguments to be addressed form all sides. The true firearm of the 2nd is a long gun or shotgun which mandates open carry as a necessary part of the right to bear arms. Handguns are much more easily abused and therefore we need to… Read more »
