Donald Trump aims to carry on presidents’ tradition of proud gun ownership

by Dave Boyer - The Washington Times  |  published on September 26, 2016

From George Washington’s flintlock pistols to John F. Kennedy’s M1 rifle, presidents have shared a long tradition of proud gun ownership.

That heritage would be far more likely to continue under a President Donald Trump than it would under a President Hillary Clinton.

Mr. Trump, the Republican nominee, has a concealed carry permit in New York, owns at least two handguns and professes a “tremendous passion” for hunting with his sons. He laments that his schedule rarely affords him time to hunt.

In an interview with The Washington Times in 2012, Mr. Trump said he owns a Hechler & Koch .45 pistol and a .38-caliber Smith & Wesson.

“I own a couple of different guns, but I don’t talk about it,” he said at the time.

    ..We the People do not elect a President.
    We the People have never elected a President.
    We the People cannot elect President — the Constitution does not permit us to do so.
    .
    Suggest you learn how your government actually functions.
    Start with the Electoral College.

    So where does Trump stand on gun control? I find it hard to see Trump hunting in a three piece suit.

      The second amendment has nothing to do with hunting, unless you are hunting terrorists. The second amendment is about the people protecting OUR CONSTITUTION.

      • bobnstuff

        So is freedom of religion, freedom of the press, first amendment and freedom from search, fourth amendment both of which Trump has already said he was not in support of. It would seem that the only amendment Trump supports is the second and not always that one.

          The 4th is being abused by the brown clown right now, Search and Seizure on American people and in most cases for no reason, or wrong house, but they won’t do this to the muslims like they should!! GO Trump!!

          • bobnstuff

            Trump just praised the stop and search program. Either he doesn’t understand the constitution or he doesn’t care, you pick it, but Trump will make Obama look like he’s a straight constitutionalist.

          • Rodney Steward

            There’s a difference between stop and search, and Search and Seizure bob, and nobody can make Obama look like anything that he hasn’t done for himself, A TOTAL LOSER AND FOOL!!

            Police may stop a person if they have a reasonable suspicion that the person has committed or is about to commit a crime, and may frisk the suspect for weapons if they have reasonable suspicion that the suspect is armed and dangerous, without violating the Fourth Amendment prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures. Supreme Court of Ohio affirmed.

            Terry v Ohio

            At least learn the basics before you start spreading bullschitte.

            “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,[a]against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and
            no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

          • NM Leon, Proud deplorable

            Yes, and who interprets the Constitution for legal purposes?

            Oh yeah, that would be the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). Terry v Ohio was an 8 to 1 SCOTUS decision.

            The NYC decision all you library idiots like to reference was by a fed judge that was so biased she was removed from the case for her bias, and was narrowly about the percentage of minority stop and frisks. The legal consensus is that the decision would have certainly been overturned had the current mayor appealed.

            Your abject, groveling, sniveling, apology is graciously accepted in advance.

      That can go 2 ways, if Hellary sees something long with a hole in it, shes not going to shoot it, she’ll have other plans for that, if U know what I mean bobby!!

    ANTI GUN CHUCK SCHUMER OWNS A GLOCK 19 PISTOL AND IS RUMORED TO OWN A 38 CAL REVOLVER>>>FACT

    • Rodney Steward

      And even Feinstein packs, another it’s OK for me and not you, idiot!!

  • Robert inguaggiato

    And if you want to see that tradition continue you have to vote for Trump as Hillary is in favor of gun confiscation and deleting the 2nd amendment. Can’t turn the country over to foreign powers without first disarming it.

      Why do you need to tell this lie?
      Why do you embarrass America this way?
      Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
      Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?
