Donald Trump to gun owners: You can do something about Hillary Clinton

The Constitutional amendment guarantees Americans the right to keep and bear arms.

The Clinton camp were quick to respond to the comment.

Clinton's campaign called the remark "dangerous".

If you're unsure what exactly the Second Amendment says, read on to see the full text and meaning of the passage. "2nd Amendment people have unbelievable spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power".

So, in other words, Pierson more or less proposed Trump was just throwing out the idea of assassinating Clinton as a possible outcome of her election.

"What he meant was, you have the power to vote against her", Giuliani said.

"It proves that most of the press is in the tank for Hillary Clinton", he added. Pence said. "And Donald Trump and I are absolutely determined to work together, and we have different styles, you might have noticed that".

A spokesman for the Secret Service said: "We're aware of the comment (from Trump) - and that's what we're willing to say at this time".

At a rally hours later in Fayetteville, Trump said the Second Amendment was "under siege", but refrained from any further suggestion. "I'm not here to take away your guns. This is a tremendous political movement".

Trump's campaign sought to quell the controversy with a statement that blamed the "dishonest media" for misinterpretation.

Former director of the Central Intelligence Agency Michael Hayden told reporters if "someone said that outside hall, they'd be in a police wagon being questioned by Secret Service". "You are responsible for what people hear".

But Tuesday's comments knocked the campaign off-message once again.

The Trump campaign rejected the notion that Trump was inciting violence against Clinton or anyone else with his aside at the Wilmington rally.

Talking to supporters in North Carolina, the Republican candidate said he needed to win the presidency to stop the Democratic Party winning control of the Supreme Court and implementing tougher gun control laws.

However, she has fiercely denied that she wants to abolish the Second Amendment.

But even some Trump supporters appeared taken aback by the nominee's comments. He made a relatively straightforward speech Monday in Detroit in which he spelled out his economic plans if elected.

Meanwhile, the USA federal agency that looks into threats against presidential candidates was keeping a tight lip. Across the country, Democratic House and Senate candidates piled on, working to tie Trump's comments to their GOP opponents.

Murphy tweeted immediately, "Don't treat this as a political misstep". He weakens USA moral authority as the leader of the free world.
