Letter: Trump’s ignorance should alarm voters

Trump’s ignorance should alarm voters

Freedom of speech allows people to opine on any topic. However, when the candidate of a major political party shows his ignorance of basic civics, it is disturbing. When Donald Trump spoke to the National Rifle Association, he stated, regarding Hillary Clinton, that “If she gets to appoint her judges [Supreme Court justices] she will abolish the Second Amendment.”

The Supreme Court cannot declare part of the U.S. Constitution unconstitutional. Was Trump’s statement empty political rhetoric or a severe lack of knowledge of the way our government works?
