Trump warns about Clinton’s judge picks, hints about gun rights

WILMINGTON, NC (AP) — Donald Trump is suggesting that if Hillary Clinton gets to pick federal judges as president, there is nothing that can be done to protect the right to bear arms.

But then he adds without elaboration that maybe supporters of the Second Amendment could figure out a way.

He says Tuesday at a rally in North Carolina, “By the way if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

A trump spokesperson released a statement in regards to Trumps comments:

“It’s called the power of unification – 2nd Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power. And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won’t be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump.

 

The Republican presidential nominee made the comment Tuesday at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina.

The Second Amendment provides a constitutional right to citizens to own guns.

During the event, he said falsely that Clinton “essentially wants to abolish the Second Amendment.” Clinton supports some new restrictions on gun ownership, but has not advocated overturning the amendment.
