President Donald Trump said on Sunday that Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams would “get rid of” the Second Amendment if elected, though the Democrat has stated on several occasions that she believes in the right to bear arms.
Speaking during a rally for Republican Brian Kemp in Macon, the president suggested that in addition to ending the Second Amendment — a power that governors do not possess — people will be sent door to door to collect all existing firearms. Trump also claimed that electing Abrams would turn the state of Georgia into the nation of Venezuela without providing evidence.
Abrams did co-sponsor a gun safety bill, but that targeted certain assault weapons and most certainly was not designed to “get rid of” the second amendment.
Besides how in the hell does a governor from one state take away a constitutional amendment?
Trump is now just saying shit that he believes will freak out his supporters, no matter how bizarre or ridiculous it might be.
