Donald Trump Umpqua Community College Shootings

Says armed teachers would have stopped killings

4 Oct, 2015

At a campaign event in Franklin, Tennessee, Trump tells the audience he supports the Second Amendment.

By the way, it was a gun-free zone. Let me tell you, if you had a couple teachers with guns in that room, you would have been a hell of a lot better off…The Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that belongs to all law-abiding Americans. The Constitution doesn’t create that right — it ensures that the government can’t take it away…Our Founding Fathers knew and our Supreme Court has upheld that the the Second Amendment purpose is to guarantee our right to defend ourselves and our families. In fact, I have a license to carry in New York, can you believe that? Nobody knows that. Can you imagine? Somebody says, ‘There’s Trump, he’s easy pickings.’ What’d you’d say?”

Trump then mimics holding a gun with his hand.
