Donald Trump Talks: Gun Control, Assault Weapons, Gun Free Zones & Self Defense

By Fredy Riehl

Donald Trump
Donald Trump; “To the Left every gun is an assault weapon.”

AmmoLand Gun News

New York, NY -(Ammoland.com)- Hello Mr Trump. Many of our readers are very excited that you have thrown your hat in the ring to run for president in 2016.

They like the idea that you have nothing to do with politics and that you have real experience running large, successful business, successful being the key word. I hope you and your family are up for the challenges of running for president.

AmmoLand: Speaking of family I know you and your sons recently attended the 2015 NRA Annual Meeting, where you were asked to speak. How long have you been active with the NRA and what do you think about the influence the NRA has in politics?

Donald Trump:

“I am a Life Member of the NRA and am proud of their service in protecting our right to keep and bear arms.  The NRA’s efforts to stop dangerous, gun-banning legislation and regulation is invaluable.  The media focus on those efforts overshadows the great work the NRA does on behalf of safety and conservation.

I have a permit to carry and, living in New York, I know firsthand the challenges law-abiding citizens have in exercising their Second Amendment rights.  My most trusted sources are my sons, Don, Jr. and Eric.  They are fantastic sportsmen and are deeply involved in hunting, competitive shooting, and habitat conservation.”

AmmoLand: The deceptive term “Assault Weapons” has proven to be a buzz word among the anti-gun media. Back in 2000 in your book “The America We Deserve you wrote “The Republicans walk the NRA line and refuse to even limited restrictions. I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun.” Since that time the AR15 rifle, what the media calls an “assault weapons“, has become America's most popular firearm with millions and millions of them owned by good people.

Do you still stand by this quote or has your thinking evolved over the 15 years since you wrote that line?

Donald Trump:

“I certainly stand by my opposition to Gun Control when it comes to taking guns from law-abiding citizens.  You mention that the media describes the AR-15 as an “assault rifle,” which is one example of the many distortions they use to sell their agenda.  However, the AR-15 does not fall under this category.  Gun-banners are unfortunately preoccupied with the AR-15, magazine capacity, grips, and other aesthetics, precisely because of its popularity.”

“To the Left every gun is an assault weapon.”

“Gun control does not reduce crime. It has consistently failed to stop violence. Americans are entitled to protect their families, their property and themselves. In fact, in right-to-carry states the violent crime rate is 24% lower than the rest of the United States and the murder rate is 28% lower. This should not be up for debate.”

AmmoLand: You have been a long time resident of New York City and we can only assume that you know former Mayor Michael Bloomberg pretty well. We have followed his efforts to undermine the Second Amendment through his various anti-gun front groups. What does he have against the RKBA and why don't we see wealthy conservatives making a similar ‘all in' push to support gun rights?

Donald Trump:

“Mayor Bloomberg and I are friends. However, on this we agree to disagree. I believe there are two reasons you do not see a similar effort from Mayor Bloomberg’s polar opposite. ”

“First, many wealthy live behind gates, armed security, and away from crime.  They may have little understanding of how fellow citizens are challenged in defending themselves and their property.  The second reason is that we have the NRA and other groups already in the arena.”

“The Trump family knows these organizations are the best investment if we are to defend the right to keep and bear arms.”

AmmoLand: Karl Rove recently voiced support for a repeal of the Second Amendment as a way to stop gun violence. What do you think of this suggestion or, as our readers believe, is it a God given right that can not be repealed by politicians?

Donald Trump:

“Karl Rove is a proven loser. He wasted $400 million in 2012 and did not win a single race.

“The Second Amendment is a bedrock natural right of the individual to defend self, family, and property.  It is a ridiculous notion to ever repeal it.”

“For Rove to even think it shows a lack of respect for all of the freedoms in our Constitution and a complete ignorance of our shared American inheritance.”

AmmoLand: As we have reported on AmmoLand Shooting Sports News, two of your sons, Eric and Donald Trump Jr., have been the target of harassment by anti-hunting groups after they posted pictures of their successes while hunting in Africa. What advice do you have for other hunters that maybe be being bullied online or elsewhere by this shrill minority?

Donald Trump:

“My advice is to remain vigilant.  Harassment of this nature will always be with us, but we know that Americans have inherited a strong outdoor and shooting heritage that we are happy to defend.”

“The 2nd Amendment is right, not a privilege. The small minority of anti-everything activists may be vocal, but we have facts, and the Constitution, on our side.”

“I would also add that hunters contribute more to the preservation of game animals and their habitat than any of these protesters. Hunters are the original conservationists. To see this historically you have to look no further then Teddy Roosevelt and his creation of the National Parks System.”

Successful hunters, Donald Trump Jr., and Eric Trump pose for a picture with a Cape Buffalo in Africa.

AmmoLand: Universal Background Checks to acquire guns is something President Obama has long been pushing for, yet background checks would not or did not stop any of the recent shooters from getting guns. What is your position on Background Checks? And do you see a need for even more government approval for someone to own a gun?

Donald Trump:

“I do not support expanding background checks. The current background checks do not work.”

“They make it more difficult for law abiding citizens to acquire firearms while consistently failing to stop criminals from getting guns. We should re-examine our policy to make sure that these prohibitions do not impede law abiding citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights.”

AmmoLand: A lot of Democrats in politics today are crying for firearms magazine restrictions. But as we saw just with the Charleston, S.C. church killer, he used standard capacity magazines and quickly changed them out five or more times. So how does it make any sense to have gun magazine size limits?

Donald Trump:

“Gun magazine limits do not make common sense. I have long opposed such limits. For instance, I fought the SAFE Act in New York, which I call the “Unsafe Act.”  I also spoke at a rally in Albany championing gun rights and protesting the Unsafe Act. The law limited capacity to seven rounds, as if criminals were going to take rounds out of their magazines before committing a crime.  It was later changed to a limit of ten rounds, but the entire episode was a complete disaster.”

“Never mindful of the results, this effort was just one more attempt to erode the Second Amendment.”

AmmoLand: Lots of AmmoLand's active duty readers have complained that many, if not all, of our military bases are “Gun Free Zones” and that these highly trained war fighters are left defenseless and disarmed against murderers, like the Fort Hood Shooter, when they are stationed on U.S. bases. Would you have a problem allowing our military bases to set their own polices with regard to personal weapons and do away with the “Gun Free Zones” death trap?

Donald Trump:

“[gun free zones] No, not optional.  As Commander-in-Chief, I would mandate that soldiers remain armed and on alert at our military bases.

President Clinton never should have passed a ban on soldiers being able to protect themselves on bases. America’s Armed Forces will be armed.

They will be able to defend themselves against terrorists. Our brave soldiers should not be at risk because of policy created by civilian leadership. Political correctness has no place in this debate.”

AmmoLand: Thank you for taking the time to answer some of our questions today. We wish you the best of luck in your presidential run. As we leave you would you like to tell our readers what the Second Amendment means to you and your family?

Donald Trump:

“The Trump family will stay vigilant in our support of right to keep and bear arms.  And given today’s threats across the United States it is as important now as ever.  National Security begins in our homes.  All citizens must have the ability to protect themselves, their families, and their property.  The Second Amendment is a right, not a privilege. Our safety and defense is embodied in the Second Amendment and I will always protect this most important right.

“Our country is ready for a bold new direction. We can bring common sense to Washington. This is our time to Make America Great Again!”

I agree with almost everything Trump said. I have only one great big problem with it – “How do you tell when a politician is lying?” – answer: THEIR LIPS ARE MOVING! The only way to truly gauge a politician, and Trump IS a politician, is to examine their record. What he has said in the past, what he has done in the past, what party or parties he has contributed to in the past, etc.. A great person once said “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are!” Look at Trump’s friends, the Clintons, Bloomberg, etc..… Read more »

But if more good citizens carried and could defend themselves and others from nuts that get weapons, the mass shootings in particular would not happen.

This sounds great. I had never paid much attention to Trump, but lately, every time he opens his mouth, I gain a little more respect for him. The real litmus test will be next week when I travel to Las Vegas. I will stop by his hotel to see if it is posted as a “Gun Free Zone”. If so, all the statements he just made would seem hypocritical.

I definitely agree, someone, whether it be ammoland, etc. needs to push the subject. He is very quick to change the subject. He has definitely, in my book, said enough in favor for guns and the second amendment, that he should be removed from office if his actions do not resemble his words. In my book that is treason. I am leaning toward him in the race, but he is very “duck and weave” on the subject. With all that has happened, he knows that the majority of “winning votes” are going to come from gun enthusiasts!!! Ammoland… you dropped… Read more »

Trump was referring to the existing ban (passed in 1994) on “assault weapons” when he said he supported it which did include AR-15s. Since he didn’t say he evolved, he’s basically weaseling out of the question. I will NOT vote for him because of this.

Hillary Clinton will in fact be our next President. It has already been determined. You can not fight the Soro’s electronic voting machines, nor the Special Interest Groups. Who would ever have thought Obama could possibly have been elected once, let alone twice, it has nothing to do with his race, in fact he really isn’t all that “black,” from a race standpoint. The youth of this country would vote for anyone who promises them higher minimum wage, and a free something made by Apple. Trump hasn’t a snow ball’s chance in “ammo land.”

The “Black Vote is less than 3%, it isn’t needed and it is highly overrated by the press. Reagan got less than 1/2 of 1 % of the media driven so important “Black Vote,” and he won by a landslide. The Black vote is meaningless. It was the educated white woman vote that propelled Obama in office. Pay back the white male is more important than any concern for this Country. Clinton is backed by outside the country marxist cash. Islamic cash and laundered cash.

Those who have a voice to the people must change their narrative when it comes to speaking out against illegal immigration. The proper narrative is to describe the Democrats as betrayers of American citizens. The Democratic Party supports and encourages illegal immigration for votes. This is betrayal of our citizens and our Republic. No one likes a traitor! Call the Democratic Party out for betrayal!

“The Republicans walk the NRA line and refuse to even limited restrictions. I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase .”

No gun owner should vote for this guy. He can spin all he wants to, but he is now on our side. Not before not now, not ever. He CLEARLY wants the NRA to compromise. His own words, live with them.

EXACTLY!! His original statement is illustrative and he did nothing to walk that original statement back. All he did was shuck-and-jive and re-direct the question. He certainly didn’t answer it to MY satisfaction.

I have to somewhat disagree with your statement, sir. I think Mr. Trump understands the difference between an ar-15 and an M-16. What he probably isn’t familiar with is, that fully auto weapons are already highly regulated by the government. When his advisers educate him, him being open minded, he will understand.

Read his exact words in his reply. He does not answer on “assault weapons” and he definitely evades any mention of waiting periods. What’s worse is Ammoland didn’t press him on either topic, a good reporter would have.

An AR-15 IS NOT AN ASSULT WEAPON. My God people. It is a semi atomatic weapon,plain and simple. You need to pull the trigger each and everytime you want to shoot.. Putting a Ferari body on a Volkswagon does not make it a Farari.
This phrase ( assult weapon) came from some Libtard that wanted everyone to be as dumb as him or thought everyone was as dumb as him. IMHO- You liberals should be offended- The Libtards are basically saying you are to dumb to figure it out, And apperantly they are right.– Here’s your sign.

Since I’m not a liberal I’m not offended. I know where the term assault weapons came from and I want Trump to define them and simply answer what he WOULD ban and why. But I stand by my original opinion of him, he’s no Conservative on Second Amendment issues.

It’s obvious you have not idea what you are talking about. There is no such animal as an “assault weapon”, which is a term made by power hunger idiots with a badge and control freak politicians. Also, the AR-15 which has your panties in a bunch has never been issued to any military and has no more fire ;power than any semiautomatic firearm, such firearms that have been with us for over a century. Enough of your hysterical rantings.

Actually there ARE assault weapons. Anything that you use as a weapon (rock, knife, golf club, revolver, 2×4, etc.) to assault someone is an “assault weapon.” The military uses assault RIFLES (fully auto) and they are assault weapons but, as above ANYTHING usable as a weapon can be an “assault weapon.”

So you quibble over assault weapons, but ignore his call for universal waiting periods and background checks. My only assumption is you agree with Trump and want waiting periods and universal background checks.

You support assault weapons ban ? What is an assault weapon ? Seriously,if I knew what an assault weapon was I might support it myself. You support longer waiting periods before law-abiding firearms owners can pick up their firearms ? Why would you support something stupid like that ? So more women can be murdered by an ex,who has threatened to kill them,esp during a divorce ? The women have filed for and received a order of protection, now they have to wait a little longer to get the firearm that could save their life ? Why in the hell… Read more »

King Obama, the man at the top is to blame for the, murders, mayhem and everything attributed to the illegal alien invasion. Obama and his Socialist-communist administration are complicit in the murder of the young women in San Francisco by an ILLEGAL ALIEN. Just today in Tucson, Arizona a illegal alien messed up on dope, killed a family on the highway. There is confirmation that a man who confessed to murdering his wife with a hammer in Laredo, Texas is a four-time deported illegal immigrant, according to federal agents who spoke with Breitbart News Texas on the condition of anonymity.… Read more »

Trump is an Effing liar judge him based on his past and prior actions not what he says. Trump has given so much money to the anti-gun anti-Constitutional zealots yet claims that he believes in the Second Amendment. Trump money is still supporting the anti-gun establishment and his money is still supporting Rahm Emanuel he calls it just doing business.

He was supporting the second amendment long before his decision to run for President. It’s all documented. He stood up to NY governor Cuomo’s SAFE act in NY, where I live… and I was present at the rally in Albany in 2014, which is what he mentions in this interview. I didn’t agree with his statement about an assault rifle ban 15 years ago… but he’s since changed his mind on it, and I’m ok with that. The bottom line is he’s the only guy who will protect the 2nd amendment as President. Hillary is going to re-enact Bill Clinton’s… Read more »

Trump refuses to answer the question regarding expanding waiting periods and artfully sidestepped the assault weapons controversy. Be very careful in supporting someone who refuses to be explicit in their answers.

he has commented several times on the assault weapon bans he believes in. They are NOT things like AK47 and AR15’s they are things like Sub mini machine guns and belt driven full auto’s as well as flame throwers and fragmentation grenades The issue is not banning weapons it the classifications of what weapons should be included. Personally owning a functional Howitzer might not be a bad idea. Can you imagine the havoc that a mental like Lanza could have done had his mom bought him one of them? Nothing wrong with assault weapon control the question is definition of… Read more »

Trump is not pro-gun he has given millions to anti-gun, and anti-Constitutional zealots like Clinton, Rahm Emanuel and other democrats. He says it was just business destroyING the Constitution is just business? I’m from Illinois and I feel the oppression from Trump’s funding every day. Trump is garbage. I hope America wakes up.
