Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump talked about drugs and guns and criticized President Barack Obama during a town hall meeting at Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire.

“You have a tremendous heroin problem here,’’ said Trump. “Like, it’s incredible. I don’t understand it. We’re going to stop it.’’

When asked what he’ll do with President Obama’s executive action to tighten gun control, he quickly said, “It would be terminated.’’

“Look, I’m a big Second Amendment person,’’ said Trump, to much applause. “Gun-free zones, that’s like candy. When these sickos see a gun-free zone, their eyes light up.’’

Trump called the victims of terrorist attacks “defenseless.’’

“We need protection. We are absolutely going to protect the Second Amendment,’’ he said.

When asked if he would be a bipartisan president, he said, “I thought that Barack Obama would be a great unifier. He’s turned out to be a great divider. I’m a unifier. I get along with everybody.’’

Trump said if voters back Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, the country would essentially have another four years of Obama.

“We just can’t do that,’’ he said. “Otherwise, you’re not going to have a country left.’’
