Front-running Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump has a decidedly mixed record on the Second Amendment. Though a concealed carrier in New York since the 1980s, he has in the past supported universal background checks, waiting periods, and gun bans.
Trump’s “Protecting Our Second Amendment Rights Will Make America Great Again” position paper was clearly designed to address this issue head-on, and in so doing, he has driven the mainstream media and their leftist allies around the bend.
Simon Maloy at Salon shrieked that the position paper “embraces some of the worst, most extreme fantasies of the crazy pro-gun right.”
Those “extreme fantasies” apparently include viewing the Second Amendment in precisely the same manner as the Founding Fathers did.
Emily Atkin of Think Progress—where neither actual thinking nor actual progress are encouraged—likens Trump’s platform to a machine gun in every pot.
Donald Trump imagines a world where regular citizens can buy automatic weapons; where gun owners can hide their weapons in any state; where there are no expanded background checks for gun purchases; and where citizens fight crime with their own assault rifles.
She then went on to attack the most politically-mature and fully formed part of his position paper, inaccurately.
