(CN) - If President Obama gets his way and appoints the Supreme Court nominee of his choice, "They'll take the Second Amendment away so fast your head will spin," Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump told a gathering of avowed sportsmen in Walterboro, S.C. Wednesday night.
Speaking from a camouflage-draped stage on the farm of Randy and Sara White, the billionaire real estate mogul received the endorsement of Lowcountry Sportsmen for Trump, then proceeded to harangue the Obama Administration for its stance on gun violence while tying the issue to the recent death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
"The Second Amendment is under siege. You know that. You know that very well," Trump said before a large crowd hemmed in by verdant woods and logging trucks, that greeted his remarks with shouts, affirmations and nods in the affirmative.
"We lost a great Supreme Court Justice," he continued. "Nobody thought this was going to be part of the equation. ... [but] all of a sudden, if the wrong person gets in they'll take the Second Amendment away so fast your head will spin."
Trump went on to tick off the names of known enemies of the Second Amendment, including former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is considering an independent run for the White House, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who the candidate dismissed as a "disaster on the Second Amendment."
"That's why it's so important that you vote," Trump told the crowd, which included many families with young children, the young and the senior citizens, business men and woman and working class laborers.
"Obama wants to put in a Supreme Court judge and the one he wants will be a very negative person on guns, believe me, and that will be the way it is," he said.
Trump then pivoted to criticize the Republican establishment, and specifically, the Republicans in control of the Senate, who he said he holds little faith in.
"I keep saying, are the Republicans going to hold firm [on their threat not to consider the president's Supreme Court nominee]? Or are they going to fail? Are they going to crack?" Trump said.
"Then I'm driving over here tonight and I hear there are already cracks; that some are saying there is a possibility that the president's nominee will be considered by the Senate; that maybe the president will nominate someone that the Republicans can agree on," he said.
"Folk, these are the same thing you heard with Obamacare," Trump said.
"We can't let that happen. It's not going to happen," he vowed.
Despite his keying in on the Second Amendment issue, which he admitted he was told would play well with his Walterboro audience, Trump mainly focused on illegal immigration and foreign trade matters during remarks he abbreviated so he could get to a second rally 82 miles away in Sumter, S.C.
Repeating his call for a border wall along the Rio Grande, inspired a roiling chant of "build that wall," "build that wall," from the crowd.
"We're going to build a wall, and who's going to pay for the wall?" Trump said, stoking the crowd.
"Mexico!" a cry rang out.
"You better believe it," Trump said.
With that, the remainder of the crowd broke into loud and sustained cheers.
