To me, it is obvious that Trump was not serious when he implied that someone could shoot Hillary. But Trump's explanation makes no sense: he said that he was saying that Second Amendment folks "must organize and get out vote to save our Constitution!"

Here's what Trump actually said:

“Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, and if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know. But I'll tell you what: that will be a horrible day.”

So his argument is that there's "nothing you can do" to stop her from picking anti-Second Amendment justices for the Supreme Court once she gets elected ... except maybe organize to get out the vote to stop her. After she's already been elected.

Sorry, Donald, that's idiotic, as is your insistence that "there can be no other interpretation."

I get that you don't want to just admit you said what you did, and then say "I was only kidding." People don't take kindly to the "I was only kidding" defense.

But lying about what you said won't go over very well, either. G+
