President Obama was the driving force behind gun sales for eight years. Gun-rights advocates suspected he wanted to subvert the Second Amendment and gun sales soared. He was repeatedly accused of trying to take our guns away.

In 2016, Donald Trump was elected and gun sales plummeted. Last week, President Trump said he would take guns away from citizens and then go to court to get permission to take the weapons. He said it twice.

This suggestion violates the Second and Fourth Amendments. Are we to take the president at his word? What happened to due process?
