I just received a letter from Republican presidential aspirant Donald Trump. The solicitation included a 2016 TRUMP AGENDA SURVEY. The caps lock doc above asks supporters’ priorities. Which reveals Mr. Trump’s. Conspicuous by its absence: any mention of gun rights. That can mean two things . . .
First, that the campaign assumes that gun voters know Mr. Trump’s got firearms freedom covered. And even if they don’t they’re aware that Ms. Clinton is no friend of theirs.
The secret recording where the former First Lady repudiates the Supreme Court’s Heller and McDonald decisions — affirming Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutional right to keep (if not bear) arms — tells you all you need to know about that. Apparently.
Second, that gun rights are not a central campaign issue for The Donald. Which is strange; it’s certainly one of the main issues that separates the Republican and Democratic presidential hopefuls. Or it could be that gun rights are an issue that Mr. Trump’s peeps want to ignore — so as not to alienate swing voters, who dance to a different maybe even disarmament tune.
Cause for concern?
