“I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun. With today’s internet technology we should be able to tell within 72 hours if a potential gun owner has a record.” Donald Trump (The America We Deserve, 2000)
This is what Trump said in his own words, published in his own book, The America We Deserve, published in 2000.
That means that he wrote it down, read it, re-read it, edited around it, and finally approved this quote to go to press for the entire world to read.
This is what we refer to as a core value. He didn't simply misstate a talking point. He didn't get carried away in the heat of the moment. No one coerced him or caught him off guard with a trick question.
He believes in restricting the Second Amendment.
How do feel about that? Are you willing to take the chance that he has completely changed his core values as far as gun restriction and circumventing the original intent of the Constitution of the United States of America?
Since printing this quote, Donald Trump has decided to make a run for the Oval Office on the conservative Republican ticket. He has claimed repeatedly that he is pro Second Amendment as well as a conservative constitutionalist. My question is, what hard evidence has he given us so that we can believe him? At this point we only have his campaign trail talking points against his approved and printed word.
