During the 2016 election cycle, I was told over and over again that I needed to vote for Donald Trump to “protect the Second Amendment.”
As it turns out, Trump is worse than Obama, at least on two major metrics.
The Trump administration has ramped up enforcement of unconstitutional federal gun control every single year.
Yes – Trump is more aggressively enforcing gun control than gun-grabbing Democrat Barack Obama. You can see the numbers HERE.
Not only that, Trump did something Obama didn’t do – implement new federal gun control with his bump stock ban.
And he bragged about it!
During a public appearance in 2019, President Donald Trump proudly reminded us about his gun control credentials, bragging that his administration implemented new gun control and has conducted more enforcement actions than anyone in history.
“At my direction, the DOJ banned bump stocks. Last year we prosecuted a record number of firearms offenses.”
Now, you might argue it would have been worse if Hillary Clinton had won. Perhaps. But if you support the Second Amendment, don’t you find it problematic that the president who’s supposed to be the good guy continues to ratchet up enforcement of existing unconstitutional federal laws?
A true supporter of the right to keep and bear arms would do better.
And make no mistake; all federal gun control laws are unconstitutional.
There isn’t an asterisk after “shall not be infringed.” No terms and conditions apply.
I give a complete explanation of the original understanding of the Second Amendment in my book Constitution Owner’s Manual: The Real Constitution the Politicians Don’t Want You to Know About. You can get more information about the book at ConstitutionOwnersManual.com.
