In an interview on CNN, leading Republican presidential contender Donald Trump said that President Barack Obama’s expected executive actions on gun purchases will further restrict citizens’ access to firearms. Speaking to Chris Cuomo on January 4, Trump predicted "Pretty soon you won't be able to get guns," adding on "It's another step in the way of not getting guns."
 
Trump made a pitch for increased attention in the United States on mental health and on those who “actually pull the trigger on the gun." He made a push to arm civilians. "If the people in Paris had guns, you know what, you wouldn't have had 134 people and many more to follow get killed," Trump said. "And if people in California had guns, a couple of guns in that room, you wouldn't have had 16 people killed."
 
"Whenever I see gun-free zone,” said gunowner Trump in the telephone interview, “that's a flag for the whackos to come in and start shooting people."
 
The Trump organization released on January 4 its first televised campaign advertisement. The ad features a narrator saying that as president, Trump would temporarily stem Muslim immigration pledging to "quickly cut the head off ISIS and take their oil."
