Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has long acknowledged that he has a concealed carry permit for a firearm, but at Wednesday night’s debate, he hinted at how often he packs heat.

“I do carry on occasion -- sometimes a lot,” Trump said. “But I like to be unpredictable.”

Trump was asked at the debate in Boulder, Colorado, hosted by CNBC, if he would feel better if his own employees brought firearms to work.

“Yes, I might feel more comfortable,” the billionaire real estate mogul said. “I would say that I would.”

Trump, who attended the New York Military Academy as a high school student, has also said in the wake of the mass shooting at an Oregon community college earlier this month that he favors arming teachers.
