After receiving the National Rifle Association’s endorsement, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told the gun advocacy group that bearing arms “is the most basic human right of all, and Hillary Clinton wants to strip it away.” Some were surprised that the NRA, the nation’s top lobbying organization promoting gun rights, would endorse Trump given his past views on the subject, but both its members and leaders received the recent Second Amendment hardliner enthusiastically at a convention of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action on Friday. “We’re getting rid of gun free zones, OK? I can tell you. We’re getting rid of them,” Trump announced to applause. While the promise may have been pleasing to the ears in the crowd, it has been mocked by others who point out that Trump owns hotels that restrict guns on their premises, or that the NRA convention itself is effectively a gun free zone. Trump presumably was referring to government-mandated gun free zones, such as the Fort Hood military base where mass shootings occurred in 2009 and 2014, or the facility attacked in San Bernardino where 14 people were killed. Referring to the San Bernardino massacre, Trump said, “If we had guns on the other side, it wouldn’t have been that way. I would have –” and then made a quick-draw gesture from his pocket with his hand in the form of a gun and said, “boom.” Trump opened his speech in congenial style, calling the NRA’s endorsement “a fantastic honor.” Gun free zones have literally been the prime areas where most gun crime occurs in America, since gun free zones were enacted by the Federal government and state governments of states like Illinois, New York, and California. Where there are multiple gun restrictions across the country, high crime rates only come along with it unlike areas that allow law abiding citizens to carry. I still can't believe to this day that across the country military bases where people are trained to use guns in the most proper of ways, still to this day that guns are unable to be in the hands of military members at those bases. I remember being in the military myself and if you had a gun you had to lock it up it an off base facility, where if your base came under attack like in Fort Hood there would be nothing you could do. If we end gun free zones in America, my guess is we could see a possible drop of 20 to 30 percent in gun crime. If we end gun control provisions for law abiding citizens those numbers could likely be reduced 40-60 percent. What a criminal fears most is an armed American citizen.
