In an interview with Ammoland.com, Trump says he supports the right of individuals to own guns. He says he has a concealed weapon permit.
Gun control does not reduce crime. It has consistently failed to stop violence. Americans are entitled to protect their families, their property and themselves. In fact, in right-to-carry states the violent crime rate is 24% lower than the rest of the United States and the murder rate is 28% lower. This should not be up for debate.
He also says he will end gun-free zones on military bases.
As Commander-in-Chief, I would mandate that soldiers remain armed and on alert at our military bases…They will be able to defend themselves against terrorists. Our brave soldiers should not be at risk because of policy created by civilian leadership. Political correctness has no place in this debate…The 2nd Amendment is right, not a privilege. The small minority of anti-everything activists may be vocal, but we have facts, and the Constitution, on our side.
He also calls Karl Rove a “loser” for proposing a repeal of the Second Amendment.
