    Supporters turn to show their support as a protestor interrupts an address by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump during a campaign stop at the Flynn Center of the Performing Arts in Burlington, Vt., Thursday, Jan. 7, 2016.

    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."

    His promise to "get rid of gun-free zones on schools" drew loud cheers from the crowd.
