US Secret Service talks to Trump campaign over gun rights comments

"Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know", Trump said. She told Couric, they're "part of a troubling pattern of saying things that illustrate just lack of judgment".

He added he could not confirm the Secret Service reached out to the Trump campaign. "I mean, give me a break", Trump told Fox News. "And now his casual inciting of violence", she said.

Possible assassination incitement aside (a phrase no one could see coming), is there any truth to what he said about Clinton wanting to abolish the Second Amendment true?

The Secret Service spoke with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump about his Tuesday remarks on the Second Amendment, CNN reported on Wednesday.

Dan Rather refuses to ignore Donald Trump's latest remarks.

Many people were alarmed by this flippant comment, forcing Trump's campaign and supporters to defend the candidate.

The former secretary of state called out Mr Trump for his recent row with the family of a fallen American Muslim soldier, which the military refers to as a Gold Star family.

MA senator Elizabeth Warren tweeted that Trump "makes death threats because he's a pathetic coward who can't handle the fact that he's losing to a girl".

Trump said that if Hillary Clinton gets to pick federal judges as president, there is nothing that can be done to protect the right to bear arms. "Nobody who is seeking a leadership position, especially the presidency, the leadership of the country, should do anything to countenance violence, and that's what he was saying".

Former U.S. Rep. Chris Shays, the last Republican to represent CT in Congress, said Wednesday he'll be voting for Hillary Clinton in November. "He is who he is", one Republican National Committee member said privately.

On Tuesday night, House Speaker Paul Ryan urged Trump to clarify the comments.

In a statement, campaign spokesman Jason Miller said Trump was just talking about the influence of Second Amendment groups like the NRA.
