Intentional? There were no Second Amendment questions in any of the presidential debates

Jake Dima, DCNF

There were no questions about the Second Amendment in the 2020 presidential debates or the vice presidential debate, despite record gun sales in the U.S.

The first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Sept. 29 did not mention gun rights, and the second debate Thursday was devoid of questions on the issue. The vice presidential debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Biden’s running mate Sen. Kamala Harris Oct. 7 also did not include any questions on the Second Amendment.

Federal background check data for gun purchases has hit an annual record with three months still remaining in the year, according to ForbesFBI Firearm sale data reached an all-time monthly high in June with a total of around 3,932,000 background checks conducted amid nationwide unrest and rioting.

Biden has advocated for a ban on “assault weapons” and high capacity magazines, in addition to red flag legislation and universal background checks, according to his campaign website.

“The first thing Washington Democrats will do if Biden is elected is pack the Supreme Court with radical left judges who will eliminate your 2nd Amendment,” Trump tweeted Wednesday.

Trump has also vowed to “save” the Second Amendment in a Wednesday tweet directed at Virginians.
