Even as Barack Obama touted the supposed benefits of gun control during a CNN-hosted town hall event Thursday night, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump shared an altogether opposing viewpoint with an enthusiastic Vermont crowd.

Not afraid to put forward bold – and controversial – campaign promises as part of his unconventional White House bid, Trump told supporters in Burlington that he would ban areas many gun rights activists feel represent attractive targets for those bent on violence.

In 2000, when Trump advanced the notion of a Reform Party presidential campaign, he shared his desire to ban all “assault weapons” while increasing the waiting period required for purchasing a firearm.
