Donald Trump has obviously been talking tough about the Orlando shootings. He even took a moment to “appreciate the congrats” for predicting the shooter’s alleged affiliation with ISIS. What a stand up guy!
Despite all his talk, Donald Trump’s policies would ensure that mass shootings like the one in Orlando (and attempt in Los Angeles) remain commonplace. Here are some of his stances, direct from his website.
- “Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice.” This shooter had no criminal record.
- “Criminals . . . get their guns from friends/family members or by stealing them.” This shooter’s guns were purchased legally.
- Banning assault weapons would be a “total failure.” An assault weapon is what allowed the shooter to kill so many people in such a short amount of time.
The inescapable conclusion is that Donald Trump is soft on guns and soft on terrorism.
