President Trump Vows – Second Amendment Will Never Be Repealed

In a resounding defense of the Constitutional right to bear arms, President Trump took to social media this morning and vowed – in all caps – that “The Second Amendment will never be repealed!”

Trump was responding to an op-ed written in the New York Times by former Supreme Court Justice John Stevens in which he argued for total repeal of the Second Amendment.

“The demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform,” he said of those far-left gun grabbers marching for attention. “They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.”

Not on his watch, according to the President.

“The Second Amendment will never be repealed!” he wrote. “As much as Democrats would like to see this happen, and despite the words yesterday of former Supreme Court Justice Stevens, NO WAY.”

Trump added, accurately, that “We need more Republicans in 2018 and must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court!”

It is a welcome reassurance after the President remained largely silent on the matter while Democrat student activists called on gun control, gun bans, and gun confiscation during their anti-Constitutional “March For Our Lives.”

Trump’s words are far more firm in their delivery than we’ve seen in the past.

Earlier this month, the President stunned conservatives by saying, “Take the guns first, go through due process second.”

It was a statement which would not only be a violation of an American’s Second Amendment rights, but their Fifth Amendment right to due process.

Stevens meanwhile, was on the losing end of a Supreme Court battle in which he wanted the Second Amendment to allow for greater gun control.

In a 2008 ruling, the high court held that the Second Amendment gives individuals the right to own a gun for self-defense. And that will never be repealed.

Do you think President Trump will staunchly defend the Second Amendment throughout his term? Tell us your prediction below!
