Jeb Bush Says 2nd Amendment ‘Won’t Exist’ In Hillary Clinton Presidency

February 12, 2016 2:09 p.m.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) said Friday afternoon that a hypothetical Hillary Clinton presidency would effectively end the Second Amendment.

Bush made the comment at the “Faith And Family” forum in South Carolina, where the forum hosts asked Bush how he would approach the appointment of Supreme Court justices. The next President could end up appointing as many as four justices to the nation’s highest court.

“If Hillary Clinton gets the four Supreme Court justices, the Second Amendment won’t exist,” Bush said. “It just won’t.”
