Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump acknowledges the crowd before addressing supporters Dec. 21 at a campaign rally in Grand Rapids, Mich.

BURLINGTON, Vt. — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he would eliminate gun-free zones in schools on his first day if he's elected to the White House.

Trump was addressing a rally crowd in Burlington, Vermont, as President Barack Obama was speaking at a televised town hall on gun violence in America.

Trump likes to tout his support for the Second Amendment and often denounces gun-free zones at his rallies, including military bases.

He told the crowd: "You know what a gun-free zone is for a sicko? That's bait."
