"Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to abolish it," Trump said at a Saturday rally in Lynden, Wash. "Hillary Clinton wants to take your guns away, and she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to take the bullets away.

"We're going to cherish the Second Amendment. We're going to take care of the Second Amendment."

Clinton is in favor of universal background checks, closing loopholes on gun purchases and increasing restrictions on domestic abusers and the mentally ill. And she wants to repeal the law that prevents victims of gun violence from suing retailers or manufacturers, among other measures.

But Clinton said at a recent event that "we can't ignore the Second Amendment" and has never proposed ending legal gun ownership entirely.

After Trump's comments, Clinton spokesman Jesse Lehrich tweeted that the presumptive GOP nominee has "no regard for facts."
