Donald Trump has vowed that he will undo President Obama’s proposed gun control measures if elected president. He assured constitutes at a rally in Mississippi that their Second Amendment rights would be protected, even if he has to “un-sign” the bill himself!
Something that angers Donald Trump, 69, above all else is the prospect of President Obama, 54, attempting to enact stricter gun control measures in the United States. After a rash of gun-related deaths in the United States, President Obama announced plans for stricter gun control via executive action, and Trump already has plans to reverse that. As he told a campaign rally in Biloxi, Mississippi on Saturday, January 2, he’ll “un-sign” the bill immediately!
“There’s an assault on the Second Amendment. You know Obama’s going to do an executive order and really knock the hell out of it,” Trump said. “You know, the system’s supposed to be you get the Democrats, you get the Republicans, and you make deals. He can’t do that. He can’t do that. So he’s going to sign another executive order having to do with the Second Amendment, having to do with guns. I will veto. I will un-sign that so fast.”
He’s not kidding! Trump doubled down on his promise while visiting CBS’ Face the Nation on Sunday, January 3, telling host John Dickerson that, “I don’t like anything having to do with changing our Second Amendment. We have plenty of rules and regulations. It’s plenty of things they can do right now that are already there. They don’t do them.”
“We have a tremendous mental health problem,” Trump continued. “We are closing places all over the world, all over the country they are closing, but they are closing all over the world. All they want to do is blame the guns. And it is not the gun that pulls the trigger.”
Nevertheless, President Obama is meeting Monday, January 4 with US Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss the steps the government can take to expand gun control, including more in-depth background checks. It’s thought that he’ll announce the same week an executive action on the matter; White House sources are calling the announcement “imminent.” Let’s see what Trump has to say then!
