Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Donald Trump's Irresponsible Comments

"Donald Trump’s apologists are once again defending his comments about 'Second Amendment people' stopping Hillary Clinton’s election. That may have been a typical throwaway line for Trump, but given the record of violence and unrest at his rallies, this was in no way a call for people to ring doorbells or get out the vote. It’s as irresponsible as playing with matches in front of an open can of gasoline. I lived through the murders of President Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Bobby Kennedy, and they aren’t laughing matters.”
