President Trump has slammed “radical” Democrats for trying to take away guns from law-abiding Americans.
During his September 16, 2019, rally in New Mexico, Trump warned of “radical left Democrats” who are hellbent on pushing regulations, higher taxes, and restrictions on free speech.
He also warned that “left-wing Democrats want to confiscate your guns and eliminate your God-given right to self-defense.”
“As your president, I will never allow them to take away your liberty, your dignity, … and I will never, ever, allow them to take away your sacred right to keep and bear arms,” Trump added.
