"Ok wait. Did Trump just suggest someone SHOOT @HillaryClinton to stop her from appointing judges???"

Donald Trump on Tuesday made it clear to his supporters that their Second Amendment rights were in danger if Hillary Clinton beats him in the fall — and then he insinuated something else.

"Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment," the GOP presidential nominee said while stumping in North Carolina. "By the way, and if she gets to pick — if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although, the Second Amendment people, maybe there is. I don't know."

Many took the statement as a threat of violence against Clinton, and the Democratic presidential nominee quickly fired back with a statement.

"This is simple — what Trump is saying is dangerous," reads the Clinton statement. "A person seeking to be the President of the United States should not suggest violence in any way."

Rob Reiner told The Hollywood Reporter that Trump crossed a dangerous line, saying, "We're talking about somebody's life here. And it's not as though there haven't been political assassinations in our country, there have been. So you have to say that this is the kind of thing that disqualifies him."

He added, "He has got some very violent people who follow him. He's got all these neo-Nazi groups and white supremacist groups and they're capable of doing all kinds of things."
