Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know.>> Trump's comment appearing to cross a line even for him. Interpreted by some as going so far as to suggest violence against Clinton to prevent her from getting the chance to fill the Court's vacant seat. Trump's camp saying he was merely talking about the power of gun rights advocates to change policy.
