Donald Trump Announces His Gun Control Policy
For those of us who support our Second Amendment rights, Donald Trump's announcement in support of those rights should come as no surprise. However Trump's support went even further than those advocating gun rights, in that Trump's proposals are a lot more dramatic by offering (if he’s elected), a national right to carry law, meaning those who have a gun should be able to use their concealed carry permit in every state.
Trump explained; “A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state, if we can do that for driving which is a privilege, not a right then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege.”
The logic in Mr. Trump’s assertions are right on point, and much like his immigration platform hard to deny, in that he’s correct America must once again claim it’s immigration laws and protect its borders for the betterment of it’s own citizen’s. And his gun control policy to that end encourages others to own guns for their own self-defense, and he noted on his campaign website that he personally has a concealed carry permit.
He also noted; “To make America great again, we need a strong military. To have a strong military, we need to allow them to defend themselves.” And to that end Trump if elected would repeal the ban on military members using firearms on base and at recruiting centers.
Trump also addressed background checks and advocated for a national system that’s more complete and includes criminal and mental health records, which is already mandated. “What we need to do is fix the system we have and make it work as intended,” he wrote.
Trump has become a lot more specific as of late, and his policies towards gun control are just the latest in what he promises to be a more comprehensive policy driven campaign.
