While Barack Obama and the liberals lecture the country about how horrible guns are in an attempt to turn America into another communist nation, Donald Trump understands that GUN CONTROL MEANS USING BOTH HANDS.
Trump told his supporters at his rally in Burlington, Vt., “You know what a gun free zone is to a sicko? That’s bait!”
Trump, a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association, considers himself a steadfast ally in the fight to protect gun ownership in the U.S. In mid-September, Trump published a Second Amendment position paper that deemed gun and magazine bans “a total failure” and pushed for nationalizing concealed carry permits, the Washington Examiner reports.
“I would get rid of gun-free zones on schools and on military bases. My first day it gets signed,” Trump said, pledging to take immediate action as president.
“There’s no more gun-free zones,” he repeated, drawing a deafening applause from the audience.
Trump continued, ending his remarks with a haunting reminder of the Chattanooga, Tenn. shooting in July that left four marines and one Navy sailor dead.
“I mean think of it,” he said. “A gun-free zone on a military base with some of the best soldiers we have sitting there, relaxing, watching television. A guy walks in, kills them immediately.”
Here are a few facts on gun-free zones via National Review:
Since at least 1950, all but two public mass shootings in America have taken place where general citizens are banned from carrying guns.
In Europe, there have been no exceptions. Every mass public shooting — and there have been plenty of mass shooting in Europe — has occurred in a gun-free zone. In addition, they have had three of the six worst K–12 school shootings, and Europe experienced by far the worst mass public shooting perpetrated by a single individual (Norway in 2011, which from the shooting alone left 67 people dead and 110 wounded).
The Charleston, S.C., church shooting in June was instead almost a college shooting. But that killer changed his plans after realizing that the College of Charleston had armed guards.
And from 1977 to 1999 in the U.S., deaths and injuries from multiple-victim public shootings fell on average by 78 percent when state governments decriminalized concealed carry of handguns.
Trump gets it. Gun-free zones are dangerous.
Guns don’t kill people. Gun free zones do.
