Did you know that Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment, confiscate all firearms, and then free every violent criminal currently locked away in an American prison, presumably so she can sit in front of a 100-inch television in the White House war room and watch as thousands of gang-banging knockout-gamers bludgeon helpless patriots to death while she cackles with murderous glee — just like she did on the night they killed our boys in Benghazi?

But in 2012, the Donald held a slightly different view on the propriety of gun control. After President Obama called for a series of firearm restrictions in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, Trump tweeted:
