Ronald Reagan’s daughter Patti Davis blasted Donald Trump over his “Second Amendment people” comment.

“Yes, Mr. Trump, words matter,” the 63-year-old daughter of the former president said in a post on her Facebook page, referencing the Republican presidential nominee’s comment that Second Amendment people block Hillary Clinton’s judicial picks. (RELATED: Reagan’s Son Not Happy About Will Ferrell Playing Role Of Reagan)

“To Donald Trump: I am the daughter of a man who was shot by someone who got his inspiration from a movie, someone who believed if he killed the President the actress from that movie would notice him,” Davis wrote. “Your glib and horrifying comment about ‘Second Amendment people’ was heard around the world. It was heard by sane and decent people who shudder at your fondness for verbal violence.” (RELATED: Reagan’s Daughter Patti Davis Takes Nude Photo For Magazine)

“It was heard by your supporters, many of whom gleefully and angrily yell, ‘Lock her up’ at your rallies,” she added. “It was heard by the person sitting alone in a room, locked in his own dark fantasies, who sees unbridled violence as a way to make his mark in the world, and is just looking for ideas.”
