Trump Claims That Clinton Would Abolish The Second Amendment

When it comes to those who favor their Second Amendment rights, Donald Trump argues that Hillary Clinton would rather do away with it.

Speaking at a Saturday rally in Lynden, Wash., Trump said "Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to abolish it. Hillary Clinton wants to take your guns away, and she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to take the bullets away. We're going to cherish the Second Amendment. We're going to take care of the Second Amendment."

Clinton is in favor of universal background checks, closing loopholes on gun purchases and increasing restrictions on domestic abusers and the mentally ill. In addition, she wants to repeal the law that prevents victims of gun violence from suing retailers or manufacturers, among other measures. Although, Clinton has never called for ending legal gun ownership completely.

After Trump's comments, Clinton spokesman Jesse Lehrich tweeted "it must be liberating to just have no regard for facts whatsoever."
