Donald Trump, presumptive GOP nominee, told a crowd of his supporters on Saturday that Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton wanted to “abolish” the Second Amendment.

“Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to abolish it,” Trump said at a rally in Washington, reported The Hill. “Hillary Clinton wants to take your guns away, and she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to take the bullets away.”

Trump paved his way to the nomination last week after sweeping in the Indiana primary.

“We’re going to cherish the Second Amendment,” Trump said. “We’re going to take care of the Second Amendment.”
