Donald Trump raised eyebrows in Wilmington Tuesday suggesting that “Second Amendment people” could do something to prevent Hillary Clinton from making appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court who might restrict gun rights.
Here’s the quote that has political pundits and the media buzzing:
“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” Trump said. “Although the 2nd Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

Governor Pat McCrory, who was campaigning with Trump, has yet to comment on the controversial remark. McCrory used his time on the Wilmington stage to announce he will take the fight over the state’s voter ID law to the U.S. Supreme Court.
