Trump Touts Supreme Court At NRA Gathering

In a speech on Friday to members gathered in Louisville, Ky., for the 145th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump said gun owners would be devastated if Hillary Clinton gets to nominate three or four justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. 

“Hillary Clinton wants to reverse the court decision in D.C. v. Heller upholding the right to keep and bear arms,” Trump said. “She said the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment.” 

Trump pointed out that the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, along with several justices being advanced in age, means the next president will shape the court for generations. “I can’t stress in any stronger fashion, whoever the next president is will appoint from three to five judges,” Trump said. “And if it’s Hillary, she will, as part of it, abolish the Second Amendment.”
