One of the most divisive issues in this year's presidential election is gun control. according to The New York Times “ gun control is a term that covers any sort of restriction on what kinds of firearms can be sold and bought, who can possess or sell them, where and how they can be stored or carried, and what obligations both the buyer and the seller have to report transactions to the government”
Today we have Secretary of State Mrs. Hillary Clinton and Mr. Donald J. Trump here to inform America about their views on Gun Control
I’m former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton. My stand on gun control is to expand background checks to more gun sales, that includes closing gun shows and internet sales loopholes.
Topic: Gun Control
I’m Donald Trump. I believe The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.
I want to strengthen background checks and getting rid of the Charleston Loophole. "I'm not looking to repeal the Second Amendment. I'm not looking to take people's guns away," ---- "But I am looking for more support for the reasonable efforts that need to be undertaken to keep guns out of the wrong hands”
Our first question is going to be what are you going to do to change our current gun control laws? Hillary you’re first.
Our Founding Fathers knew, and our Supreme Court has upheld, that the Second Amendment’s purpose is to guarantee our right to defend ourselves and our families. This is about self-defense, plain and simple. Fix our broken mental health system. All of the tragic mass murders that occurred in the past several years have something in common – there were red flags that were ignored. We can’t allow that to continue. We must expand treatment programs, and reform the laws to make it easier to take preventive action to save innocent lives.
Yes, I am also going keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, other violent criminals, and the severely mentally ill by supporting laws that stop domestic abusers from buying and owning guns, and I working to keep military-style weapons off our streets.
Any final remarks from you Mrs. Clinton?
Yes, no fly no buy policy should be enforced but also, The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit. That permit should be valid in all 50 states.
And you Mr. Trump?
There you have it folks! The presidential candidates views on gun control. Thanks for tuning in. Good night America.
