During a rally with supporters in New Hampshire, President Trump promised unequivocal support for the Second Amendment. “We can’t make it harder for good, solid, law-abiding citizens to protect themselves,” President Trump argued. “We will always uphold the right to self-defense, and we will always uphold the Second Amendment.” He also made clear his stance that “It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger. It’s the person that pulls the trigger.” Unlike the Left which just wants to confiscate guns, President Trump is focused on improving mental healthcare resources and getting to the root of the problem in the wake of the Dayton and El Paso mass shootings. We don’t expect any gun-grabbing bills to get signed into law in the near future.

President Trump on Thursday told supporters in New Hampshire that he would “always uphold the Second Amendment” and suggested that the construction of new mental health facilities would help curb gun violence.
The president lamented the lack of mental health institutions as he spoke about the need to keep guns away from people with mental illnesses. The comments come as the White House and Congress examine new gun laws after recent mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas.
“It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger. It’s the person that pulls the trigger,” Trump said, earning a roar of approval from the crowd in Manchester.
