Trump's Gun Rights Comments May Be His Downfall

The US Republican Party presidential hopeful for the November 2016 elections, Donald Trump, may have bitten off more than he can chew. The Republican nominee at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, while addressing a crowd of his supporters, said that Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee wants to abolish the second amendment of the Constitution, which gives rights to individuals to bear and carry arms. This elicited boos from the crowd.

The Republican nominee went on to say that, “the second amendment people” might do something to prevent Hilary Clinton from overturning the right to bear arms if she becomes president and has the power to choose Supreme Court judges. The statement was heavily criticized by many saying Mr. Trump is inciting an act of violence, perhaps an assassination of Mrs. Clinton.

Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut dismissed the Republican nominee by reminding Mr. Trump of the 2012 Newton shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary that took place in his state and various mass shootings by American citizens.

Shortly after the Wilmington campaign, the Trump campaign team released a statement defending Trump’s statement saying that he was referring to the power of unification of the people who are against gun control measures. The statement went on to read that these “second amendment people” would vote in record numbers for Donald Trump and not Hilary Clinton.

Donald Trump is calling for the American people to protect their right to self-defense, but he repeatedly shoots himself in the foot by the manner in which he delivers his agenda repeatedly. His latest comments on gun rights may be his downfall.
