ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Wednesday said Republican Donald Trump's gun rights comment incites violence and said he does not have the temperament to be president. "Every single one of these incidences shows us that Donald Trump simply does not have the temperament to be president and commander in chief of the United States," she said at a rally in Des Moines, Iowa, a day after Trump's remarks. Trump suggested on Tuesday that gun rights activists could act to stop Democratic rival Hillary Clinton from nominating liberal U.S. Supreme Court justices, igniting yet another fire storm of criticism just as he sought to steer clear of controversy. "If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks," Trump said at a rally. "Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know," he continued. The U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment guarantees the right to bear firearms. Clinton's campaign called the remark "dangerous." The U.S. Secret Service has had "more than one" conversation with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's campaign regarding comments the candidate made about gun rights, CNN reported on Wednesday. When asked to clarify what Trump meant, his campaign said he was referring to getting supporters of the Second Amendment to rally votes for Trump in the election.
