Trump on Gun Control

posted Nov 29, 2016, 6:18 PM by Daniel Laurison

Trump believes there should be no limits on buying guns. He’s been quoted saying, “I am a 2nd Amendment person.” He thinks mass shootings are due to a “huge” mental health problem here in the United States. He believes that enemies of the state, i.e., people on terror watch lists, etc. shouldn’t be allowed to procure firearms. He wants to make concealed carry permits valid in all states, much like driver’s licenses. He argues against gun-free zones and thinks that guns make America safer in general. He does support the ban on assault weapons in general. However, his main concern is mental health: “...if you take the guns away from the good people… the bad ones are going to have target practice.” In terms of the head of the ATF, Trump hasn’t yet announced a pick. However, he has said that he wants to appoint a pro-gun leader for the Bureau.
