From Press Release

 

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump released the following statement, along with a link to a position paper, Friday afternoon. The position paper deals with the Second Amendment and his plans to protect it, if elected President.

The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear.  The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon.  Period.
The Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that belongs to all law-abiding Americans.  The Constitution doesn’t create that right – it ensures that the government can’t take it away.  Our Founding Fathers knew, and our Supreme Court has upheld, that the Second Amendment’s purpose is to guarantee our right to defend ourselves and our families.  This is about self-defense, plain and simple.
It’s been said that the Second Amendment is America’s first freedom.  That’s because the Right to Keep and Bear Arms protects all our other rights.  We are the only country in the world that has a Second Amendment.  Protecting that freedom is imperative.  The plan to protect this freedom can be viewed here: https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/second-amendment-rights
