Trump: I will get rid of gun-free zones

US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has vowed to get rid of gun-free zones if he is elected in November.

After being endorsed by the National Rifle Association, the billionaire gave a speech in which he mentioned a shooting at Chattanooga military base when four marines were killed - though he mistakenly included the shooter in the body count.

Had they been able carry their weapons with them, he said, they could have defended themselves.

"Gun-free zones - we're getting rid of gun-free zones, I can tell you," he said.

He made a similar point about November's terror attacks in Paris, claiming that fewer people would have died had there been "bullets going in the opposite direction".
