USA – -(Ammoland.com)-“The November 8 2016 elections shattered the illusory leftist establishment American mindset,” gun dean John M. Snyder noted here today.

“Let us thank the Lord our God for that,” he added, “and work now to move our country in the right national direction.”

“Our country has been heading downward morally, economically and politically” Snyder said. “The election outcome has given us a chance to reverse that downward trend.

“We can thank the Lord for enabling our USA to escape the wickedness of a Hillary Clinton presidency. It gives us the opportunity to make a new beginning.”

Snyder said, “The victory of Donald J. Trump in the presidential election is a people’s triumph over the insanity of restrictive gun control, the monstrosity of leftist statism, the horrors of abortion, the terrors of Islamism, and the sheer idiocy followed by perpetrators of one-world nonsense.

“The election affirms traditional national values. It enables us to make America great again.”

A practicing Catholic, Snyder has been named “the dean of Washington gun lobbyists” by the Washington Post and New York Times, “a champion of the right of self-defense” by the Washington Times, the “gun dean” by Human Events, and “the senior rights activist in Washington” by Shotgun News. The Trace designated him a power broker.

He holds AB and MA degrees in government from Georgetown University. He has been an NRA magazine editor and official of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and Second Amendment Foundation. He directs Telum Associates, LL.C, and serves on boards of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, Council for America, and American Federation of Police and Concerned Citizens.

@Larry. At least you voted and knew who and why you voted for them. Many others didn’t vote and if they did, they had no basic understanding as to why they were voting for that person. As for a one issue vote, here in flyover and corn country, many people’s decision came down to the fact that a basic freedom was threatened to be endangered: the right to self defense via the 2nd Amendment. Neighbors that I BS with were in shock that a candidate for POTUS would openly and brazenly admit that she wanted to relegate the 2nd Amendment… Read more »

To some degree I agree with Larry in that all national elections are about more than one issue. There is, however, one issue that overrides all others. That is the defense of The Constitution. Framing the argument as a “Gun Rights” issue is inaccurate. The Constitution does not grant US citizens any rights. It recognizes the rights that you have by virtue of breathing. Self defense is first and foremost of those, and supports all other rights. When you are voting for a party that has both candidates speaking in violation of a Constitutional Right, that they would have to… Read more »

@D Leader, I concur, some issues are transitory. The issue of our Second Amendment civil Rights is paramount, and overrides the others. Civil Rights are hard to come by, and losing any Civil Rights is a decent into slavery to the various governments. Now, is our time to push. Weather you want Donald Trump to reject the idea of nominating anti-gun activist David Patraeus to the post of Secretary of State (he hates your Right to own guns so much that he teamed up with anti-gun leader Mark Kelly and his wife, Gabrielle Giffords, to co-found the Veterans Coalition for… Read more »

@Dleader- While I have not formerly been a “single issue voter,” I have become one since recently contemplating the issue at greater length. I have found that the issue of gun rights is a sort of Bell Whether for what people truly believe about American citizens generally, and about our Constitution, and their stance on the 2nd Amendment tends to predict how an individual will behave in other areas as well. I find the most basic, fundamental difference in the way liberal-progressives and conservatives think, stems from their underlying beliefs about people generally. Progressives think of themselves (individually, as well… Read more »

Oldshooter, I completely concur. I also believe that the Second Amendment is a bell weather issue. If one believes in the Second Amendment, then one believes in the Constitution and our Founding Fathers.

Time will tell if he (Trump) flips or flops. Eventually one has to walk the walk.

Like Wild Bill wrote “Trump owes us: No Second Amendment no Second Term.” He owes every NRA and GOA member that voted for him. We don’t need to hear the rhetoric anymore, we need to see results.

Trump’s Leftists Picks & Potential Picks – many with huge anti-2nd Amendment Ties “I’m going to have the best people.” Well, Donald, this certainly ain’t “awesome.” Secretary of the Treasury – Steven Mnuchin (PICKED): a Goldman Sachs founder’s grandson and Globalist communist supporter George Soros’ associate. What about all of Trump’s accusations of “Lying Ted” Cruz being owned by Goldman Sachs??? Cruz’s wife is a Goldman Sachs pee-on employee compared to this guy. I thought that Trump was going to “kill the New World Order” and globalism? Secretary of State – retired Gen. Petreaus (STRONGLY CONSIDERED): VERY active anti 2nd… Read more »

Unfortunately all national elections are about more than one issue and each must be considered by the responsible voter. To vote only because of gun issues is a right but so are all the other big issues. I felt the Libertarian ticket was the best. Both candidates were former GOP governors and presented a wide ranging platform I did not agree with all of them but overall it seemed the best. Trump, Clinton? I could not vote for either.

Thanks for voting for the ANTI-GUN morons in the third party and allowing one more unopposed vote for the shrill lying hag and criminal Hillary.
Check out those YOU voted for; BOTH are ANTI-GUN RINO republicans.

I watched them say they were for the 2nd as an individual right. Prove to me Johnson was lying. And I could not vote for the big mouth narcissist nor the criminal woman.
