Trump The New Heston? Vows To Veto Gun Regulations
In a town hall meeting in New Hampshire this morning GOP frontrunner Donald Trump accused his rivals of being “weak on the Second Amendment,” and said that there are already enough gun restrictions.
“We have tremendous regulations already, a lot of people don’t even realize,” the Republican presidential candidate told the crowd at the event hosted by NBC’s Today show.
When asked how he would solve the problem of gun violence in America, Trump said “You’ve got to enforce what [restrictions] we’ve got right now, and there’re plenty right now.”
“People aren’t abiding by them, government does a terrible job of enforcing them, but we already have tremendous regulations.” Trump added.
Turning to his opponents, Trump declared “Carson is weak on the Second Amendment. Bush is weak on the Second Amendment.”
Trump repeated a previous assertion that mass shootings in the US are the result of untreated mental illness, rather than lax gun control laws.
