There has been a war of words over guns between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump since Trump’s NRA endorsement this past week.
On January 21st, Donald Trump said he would get rid of gun free zones in schools. Hillary used that to slam Trump on Saturday at the Trayvon Martin Foundation dinner, saying it was dangerous. Trump means to leave it to the states to decide.
On Sunday with Fox News’ “Fox & Friends”, where the presumptive GOP nominee was responding to a question about Hillary Clinton’s attacks on his gun control stance, Trump said she was wrong.
“I don’t want to have guns in classrooms. Although, in some cases, teachers should have guns in classrooms,” Trump said during the phone interview. “Things that are going on in our schools are unbelievable. You look at some of our schools, unbelievable what’s going on. But I’m not advocating guns in classrooms.”
“But remember, in some cases and a lot of people have made this case, teachers should be able to have guns. Trained teachers should be able to have guns in classrooms.”
In April, 2000 Clinton used his weekly radio address to promote the very same thing with his funding for “COPS in School,” a Justice Department program that placed police officers in schools to make them safer.
“Already, it has placed 2,200 officers in more than 1,000 communities across our nation, where they are heightening school safety as well as coaching sports and acting as mentors and mediators for kids in need,” Clinton said.
Sen. Sessions said on Fox News Sunday, when she was asked about the NRA decision to endorse Donald Trump, that “Hillary Clinton is the most anti-2nd amendment president[ial candidate], perhaps we’ve ever had.”
“This would be the greatest reduction of 2nd amendment rights since the founding of the republic. It’s a tremendous issue and Americans need to understand the extent of her radical position on it,” he said.
