In Donald Trump's speech at Burlington Vermont, yesterday on 7 January, The Donald paid tribute to an armed woman who defended herself in New Hampshire, virtually next door.
At 59:10, Trump says:
We have this woman in New Hampshire who actually said that I am going to vote for Mr. Trump. She hears someone behind her.Trump goes on to say that the woman shot the man who attacked her, and the man did not die, he ended up in the hospital. He says that he loves that woman, and continues to boost the idea of armed self defense. Later, he talks about gun free zones on military bases. He states that he will eliminate gun free zones on schools, and that he will eliminate gun free zones on military bases on the first day of his presidency. Trump says:
We have to protect the Second Amendment, we have to protect it.
I will get rid of gun free zones on schools. You have to. And on Military bases, my first day, it gets signed.
If you listen to the video, it is pretty clear in context. He is talking about military bases. Then he adds that he will get rid of gun free zones on schools. The he says, “And on Military bases, my first day, it gets signed.”
Trump has this stream of consciousness style of speaking. These are not stump speeches. There is no teleprompter. The speeches are not memorized, so the syntax is not absolutely clear.
But it is clear from the context that he was primarily speaking about military bases.
Donald Trump praises an armed woman who uses a gun for self defense, and is happy to have her on his side. He says we have to get rid of Gun Free School Zones, and he promises to eliminate gun free zones on military bases on his first day as President.
This was a very pro-Second Amendment speech.
