President Trump got advocates of gun-law reform heated up this week with one strong early-morning tweet. The president is not in favor of touching the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which confers on U.S. citizens the right to “keep and bear arms.”

In his statement, Trump referred to an op-ed in the New York Times titled John Paul Stevens: Repeal the Second Amendment. The retired conservative Supreme Court Justice explained why he thought the Constitution should be changed to include more gun restrictions in America.

This clearly did not sit well with the president, and Trump’s response equally rubbed supporters of gun-law reform the wrong way. In response, several of the Parkland shooting victims tweeted back at the president, trolling his gun stance.

Of course, there were many who agreed with Trump’s tweet. They too voiced their opinions on the gun-control debate on Twitter. Among them were the NRA, which applauded the president’s strong stance.

As with any good argument, there were also more moderate voices insisting that America can have its cake and eat it too: gun reform without repealing the Second Amendment.
