I hate to say I told you so, but Trump is a New Yorker and never really gave damn about the Second Amendment or any of the other Amendments and rights guaranteed in the Constitution.
Oligarchs in power don’t want their subjects to have the ways and means to say no to their dictates.

President Trump has appointed Anthony Scaramucci as his new communications director, a move which resulted in Sean Spicer’s resignation earlier today. It also prompted something else: celebration from Michael Bloomberg’s employees at Everytown for Gun Safety.
It seems that Scaramucci has made some strident communications of his own in the past in support of strict gun control measures and Bloomberg’s bunch is declaring victory.
Following the Sandy Hook shooting that killed 20 children and six adults in 2012, Scaramucci tweeted that he has “always been for strong gun control laws.” In another tweet, Scaramucci implied that keeping a gun in a home may give the “illusion of security, but more likely to cause you harm.” Additionally, Scaramucci tweeted that when it comes to guns, “it is just common sense [to] apply more controls.” In 2016, he tweeted that “killings went down” when “guns were taken from people who put their fellow citizens at risk.”
