Why President Trump "Thinks" He's Pro Gun
Why President Trump “Thinks” He’s Pro Gun

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Politics suck. There’s no short way around it.

In this day and age of deep divisiveness not seen since the caning of Senator Sumner in the Old Senate Chamber back on May, 22nd 1856 –a act of political violence that foreshadowed the approaching war between the states – it’s a safe bet that today’s radical Democrat party is attempting to push America in a perilous direction.

An increasingly militant Democrat Party is openly embracing socialism as the party leaders conduct a brutal culture war, at the forefront of which is their open desire to disarm the populace.

No good can, or will, come from this ongoing battle the Democrats seem intent on waging.

Way back in 2015 and 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump took the fight for our right to bear arms directly to the streets. No doubt in my mind that his campaign was the most openly pro-gun campaign I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. In a brilliant maneuver, Trump understood the radical left was going to continue to push their gun control agenda, and in a (successful) attempt to beat them in their own backyards, Trump vociferously embraced the NRA and gun rights and won the votes of hard-working, gun-owning, blue-collar, America. Voters who may have otherwise supported a Democrat. The gun owner handed Trump the White House and thankfully saved, for now anyway, the Supreme Court from falling into the hands of the progressive socialists.

Fast forward a couple of years, and what have we –gun owners – gotten for our loyalty?

Two Supreme Court justices who are primarily expected to be pro-freedom when it comes to our right to bear arms? Yes, and I would argue from a position of strength, we’ve also added many lower court judges who will help us in our fight for freedom in the nations federal appellate courts as Trump shifts the balance of power in those circuits. While it’s not sexy and doesn’t get a ton of media play, it’s driving the lunatic, fringe, leftists, crazy as it should. But what else?

So far we’ve lost our bump stocks if we even owned one in the first place, and now we’re idly waiting to see if Trump follows through on his commitment to gun hating foreigner, Piers Morgan to consider banning so-called “silencers,” otherwise known as suppressors. In two disturbing incidents, President Trump disparaged “silencers” saying he doesn’t like them when asked a question before boarding Marine One prior to heading overseas, and the Morgan incident during an interview in Great Britain when he alluded to being open to possibly ban the devices.

Unfortunately, for Trump as he heads into what is shaping up to be one of the most vicious and hateful presidential campaigns of all time, he has no room to spare. Trump needs every single one of us – gun owners – to cast a vote for him to win. A loss by Trump in 2020 will usher in a wave of unAmerican gun controls that will likely see outright attempts to confiscate our property while red states dig in their heels as the progressive left grows bolder with a win in the White House.

Trump, or his advisors, must certainly know this, right?

Not necessarily. Trump believes that his open embrace of the NRA and his appointment of what we believe to be pro-rights justices and judges is what makes him pro-gun. We know better. We know that being pro-gun doesn’t mean sacrificing bump stocks is OK. We know that being pro-gun doesn’t mean telling a foreign, gun hating, journalists that considering banning “silencers” is acceptable. It’s not, and neither of those two gun-grabber supported initiatives is earning him any gun owner votes, or more importantly, Democrat socialist voters. Like former Governor, now U.S. Senator, Scott in Florida before him, he would be foolish to believe that capitulating to the enemies of our freedoms will somehow magically endear them to his side.

I’m inclined to believe that Trump truly considers himself the most pro-gun president in history simply because he says he is. I think that Trump feels banning accessories isn’t the same as banning guns. He is wrong on both counts. At this stage of the game, with the House in the hands of a clown posse being lead by an aging progressive, gun hating whacko, Trump needs to step up to the plate and begin proving to Americans why he can be trusted when it comes to our right to bear arms.

In an upcoming column, I’ll pass along some ideas that Trump can implement right away to start winning back those voters who are now skeptical of his “pro-gun” claims in the wake of his anti-rights move on bump-stocks and his recent comments about banning suppressors. If he fails to listen, he’ll see the very voters he needs to win re-election stay home, and a stay at home voter is a victory for socialism. If I have to tell you what a socialist win for the White House means for our future, you’re already dead from the neck up.

Now that you guys are so triggered and out in the open I can’t wait for part 2.
This is fun.

I don’t like those fiberglass handled shovels and even though I don’t have to buy one I’m thinking it’s best to ban them from other people retroactively so they can be criminals for the ones they currently possess.

Japan is run by China which is knew news to me and citizens of Japan are protesting against extradition to China for prosecution which will lead to being sentenced to death. They aren’t protesting because they’re mad they’re protesting for their lives. When I turn my screen on there is no shortage of narrative against me and those I care about rolling hard in America.

You are gonna hafta get yer information straight, it isnt the country of Japan that is worried about extradition to mainland China…it’s the city/state of Hong Kong…but I suppose the schools don’t mention or teach that historic info any more..Look it up, become better informed.

USA

Sorry, hard to tell them apart. Can’t load up a map here with very little reception. Hong Kong then but I guess that’s better than King Kong.

Charlie Foxtrot

Hong Kong and Japan are about 1,200 miles apart. The Japanese once invaded China and we dropped two big bombs on Japan. We have permanent military bases in Japan. Hong Kong used to be British until 1997, when China took it back after the lease to the British ran out. If it is difficult for you to tell Hong Kong and Japan apart, then maybe it is time for you to admit that you have a problem.

USA

That would be you with the problem because I personally don’t give a damn. China, Hong Kong, Laos, who cares but thanks going critical mass on something that is so important to everybody. Now go foxtrot your little ass right out of here back to 8 Chan.

Don, yer screwing up even worse…Biden is a dumb dip-schitt..easily in the pocket(s) of the far left ( Communist ) You are the person we all worry about as you change your mind faster than changing your sox when it comes to voting for political candidates…Remember, Trump is human and sometimes makes verbal slips of the tongue just as you or your neighbors…Do what others have done instead and re-think/drop your renewal of membership in the NRA & join the GOA or other 2nd Amendment pro-gun organizations, as I & multiple thousands of others have done…

USA

Biden = China.
Follow the money.

USA

Slips of the tongue are not the issue. Bans stuff making criminals out of compliant citizens is China and we don’t like China. Bans stuff then in same breath says if gun laws that criminals don’t obey get in the way of carrying a gun to protect your life then do not comply. He actually really doesn’t even make any sense on guns anymore. Ban Trumpstocks but if you need one to defend yourself then don’t obey the ban. I was originally thinking he was trying to work some magic to get laws tossed but then these bans and shit… Read more »

Any American can turn on the screen and see them lined up threatening our very existence and then stuff people use to protect themselves get banned. Not that I need any of that stuff but maybe someone does. Not for me to judge what others use for security. Perhaps if Antifa try’s using that stuff on a person then that person may need the same stuff to defend. I’m certain Antifa will comply to the ban. Just a thought.

Chaim Yankel

It’s NOT about whether or not we “need” bump stocks or suppressors. It has EVERYTHING to do with how he went about banning a firearm accessory via Executive caveat and using the ATF, which is a law enforcement agency, to literally change the definition/law of what a machine gun is. He set a very dangerous precedent for the next gun grabbing Democrat President to do the EXACT same thing only this time, it won’t involve “bump stocks” or “suppressors”, it will be any number of other things including semiautomatic firearms.

USA

Perhaps he could ban Antifa, radical Islam or feminism and get to the root of real problems.
Just a thought.

JDT

I don’t think Trump cares if he wins a second term. I can’t believe our gun rights were safer when Obama was in office.

USA

Barry tweeted a couple nights after Orlando false flag attack to give him the guns and he would stop attacking.
Nice try!

Pro 2A groups here identify 6+ parts to our Bill of Rights that are tossed in trash due to Trump demanded red flag and they are the ones counting so this is not just my take on things. There’s lots of us and we’re not happy about this issue. Many are LE. So to say communism is coming if we don’t vote Trump the fact is it is passed and signed into law today. Communism not coming, communism here now. Sounds like many of you still have these rights and good for you I’m happy for ya.

Wild Bill

@USA, I do not recall hearing any Trump speeches demanding “Red Flag” legislation. Can you point to some so that I can read up on this? So called “Red Flag” laws are Tenth Amendment subject matter.

USA

Sorry but I’m in the bush using a tiny stamp sized phone to post in heavy rain and lightening. It is common info here and there might be somewhere like a million people pissed off over it. In my state mere presents of a firearm is grounds for red flag. A person can call a red flag in by phone free of charge and have someone legally swatted. No appearance ever required. Can even call in red flag on cops with same process. A concealed carry permit is evidence of firearm possession for red flag confiscation. We count 7 rights… Read more »

Trump has kept his word. It is the RINOs that broke their promises. In breaking their word, they opened the door for a democrat takeover of the house. In the mix are socialist and muslims who hate this nation and what it stands for. Many republican voters were so disgusted by that betrayal they either stayed home and didn’t vote in the midterms or refused to vote for republicans, or because Trump had gotten so much without help that they believed that surely Trump would be reelected even if they didn’t make the effort to vote. They miscalculated the stupidity… Read more »

Yeah those Trumpstocks are junk is my guess but Antifa might like them and they have rights too. Antifa is online openly discussing what types of firearms they can conceal under thier jacket to use for mass shooting of people and I haven’t seen a single Antifa red flagged for this 1A protected speech.
Just an informative statement in the event you don’t hear Antifa has these plans but I’m sure the ban will stop them thanks to Trump. Lol.
Might even consider banning the color black to help stop killing. Loooool.

Army ELint Spook

FYI… You definitly do not need a bumpstock to closely replicate machine gun fire …All it takes is learning the particular & special ‘technique’ of holding the firearm & squeezing the trigger of a semi-auto rifle, its EZ once learned…it took me less than 60 rds or so to learn the technique…just remember, wasting ammo is on your “nickle” not the govt’s…practice your shooting skills and you won’f need to pray & spray ammo needlessly…

USA

I saw those you tube videos too but I have no desire to “spray ammo” for any reason.
Thanks for the tip though but consider it a waste of your time.

John

It’s not bump stock ban that has folks pissed off – it is legal commerce decades later deemed illegal with criminal penalties attached!

If the grandfather clause was honored, many would care less about the ban.

USA

People minding their own business not hurting anyone turned into criminals is authoritarian. Punishment for the doing of others. China!

John

Yep / pretty much sums it up!

TC

It may seem like a minor thing, but I believe it reflects a (probably not intentional) kind of us (the Trump Administration) and them (We the People) sort of thinking when the President speaks of “YOUR” second amendment rather that “OUR” second amendment. That, from my perspective, can result in not seeing the very direct connection between banning “accessories” and “guns!” Please include that in your list of things you want the President to know. Second, an probably most important, he is a smart man, but he is not clairvoyant, so take appropriate actions to make it a certainty that… Read more »

USA

Wrong, he is clairvoyant and knows when you might commit a crime so he will Red Flag and confiscate throwing Constitution in trash. All quite un-American just like the left. And keep in mind he says break the law if you need to be armed and it gets in the way.
Playing all sides to the center? Who could even make sense of this nonsense? Be lawful and break the law. Ene mene minee mo catch some bull shit by the toe……………………………..

Trumpstock/suppressor issue is really just a matter of principle to me and if Trump reversed tomarrow I would still have no requirement for those items.

POTUS Donald Trump, We The People ask for you to reverse the Red Flag Laws you signed in, and reverse the Bump Stock ban. Stand with the 2nd A and NRA and GOA…NO MORE ANTI- GUN LAWS OF ANY KIND

ONLY PRO GUN LAWS! now sign something that lets silencers be avaialable to we the law abiding public. And get away from NY

USA

Yeah, that Red Flag trash is a direct attack on America. Barry is proud of Trump. I am not.

JohnBored

Not “silencers” suppressors. The left wins by controlling the language. For example. AR equals Assault Rifle when is Armalite Rifle.

Wild Bill

@Country Boy, What Red Flag law has president Trump signed? Trump is part of the federal government. Red Flag laws are state laws.

USA

That Trump demanded states to adopt with disregard to the Constitution. Trump is thought police.
Red Flags are called confiscation by cops in my state. They aren’t fooled and neither am I.
Staying home, 2020.

Wild Bill

@USA, So then Trump did not sign any Red Flag laws? Nor do I recall any Trump speeches in which he demanded states adopt Red Flag laws. As to Trump “being thought police”, that is a different allegation, but you do not seem to be constrained in your thinking.

USA

Trump demanded states adopt red flags. Old news now. Not even a secret. He is a bull shiter and I don’t want any special treatment as you mention in the other post but thanks for the offer.

John

Hey Wild Bill, Trump did say take guns first, due process second. That is red flag law and by his own words he supports such draconian poobah!

Carrying out those words through signed legislation then becomes a violation of oath of office.

Remember, Rubio proposed a bill to do just that nation wide.

Vigorous verbal opposition to these draconian laws pits First Amendment Rights against Second – as the message now is shut up or you will be red flagged!

USA


Nobody else seems to under what you post that red flag is to silence voices/oppress the right and license to kill them. Red Flag is NAZI door to door genicide. They want us to believe Trump didn’t start Red Flag that he is innocent.

USA

Nobody gets out alive!
Lol.
Sooner they burn it down the better we will all be.

USSC refuses gun cases and Trump requests they refuse cases then Trump comes out on Piers Morgan and says criminals don’t obey gun control for Americans to not obey it either and carry a gun regardless so they can protect their lives yet Trump does nothing to eliminate unconstitutional laws that are getting Americans killed and this makes sense? Please explain. I’m waiting…………………………………. Break the law and go to jail to save your life with zero assistance for Trump.

Wild Bill

@USA, The S. Ct. chooses the cases that it will hear. The president does not choose the cases that the S. Ct. will hear. The president does not have authority to ” eliminate unconstitutional laws”. If you broke a law, even an unconstitutional statute, what assistance would you want from Donald Trump?

Big Jim

Wild Bill, Are you suggesting that changing the language in a law was not done by Mr. Trump through executive fiat? He wrote an unconstitional Law? No disrespect just asking.

USA

Be advised, Other American supporters that I know are staying home also!

And nuke Iran too. Leave nothing but a glowing hole in the ground where it used to be and set those Iranian Guard troops in USA loose. Let’s do this. Getting bored with the pansy ass pussy days having my shit stripped away thread by thread. Nuke those sons of bitchs.

JimC

Ironic that Eric Trump was shown shooting a pistol with a built-in suppressor during the campaign. I wrote and asked him to educate his old man.
The best thing the Donald could do would be to ram through the Hearing Protection Act.

Kevin

While we’re talking history, we need to remember our own position. In the great debate before the Brady Bill, our side, the NRA, continually brought up the point that our semi-auto rifles were not “assault weapons” because they only fired one round with each pull of the trigger. Sorry, but them’s the facts! Trump is wrong on the suppressor issue, but on bump stocks, he’s pretty much agreeing with the NRA’s position from 1994. If we lose Trump, we lose the Republic.

USA

Reagan hit was a false flag for gun control. Is why gov sedans we’re back and forth at shooters house for quite sometime prior to the shooting. That house is in Evergreen Colorado and you don’t know this because THEY LIE and it’s why gun control is a scam. Hagalian Dialectic to be more precise. You Tube has good videos on it and it is what politics are based upon. LIES.

Jay

Good article. Thx for writing the truth. Dont know how this 2020 election is going to go but need Trump to step up and shut up for once and listen. He needs for his sake to get this voter registration and fraud under control.

USA

He will not get the fraud under control because he is throwing the election intentionally to create civil war. He will get the votes but they will say Dem on them in the count then sharp end of the stick for America. In the meantime banning those toys everyone likes so much will create a disadvantage to the honest people so Christians can be rounded up easier. 2020 genocide coming soon to a street near you and me.

Trump could rescind all federal import bans of firearms lacking a “sporting purpose” with a stroke of his presidential pen. Don’t hold your breath for him to do anything of the sort.

Unconstitutional bans have never before by any dictator led to more unconstitutional bans.
Right, got it.
Not holding breath.

“… with the stroke of a pen”. What that means is the Executive Order (EO). An EO can be revoked by the stroke of the pen of the next president. The EO should never be considered a solution but instead, a short term remedy. It does not create law, only congress does that. I’m taking this in another direction. According to reports, the Virginia Beach Municipal murderer was terminated and presumably removed from the premises at some point on Thursday. Friday he returns, somehow still has access to a secured area where he committed the murders. Based on that information,… Read more »

Fnu Lnu

What? Isn’t that what America’s warriors do for you everyday?

The victims views of the constitution aren’t KNOWN. At least one of them contemplated bringing a firearm on Friday, but opted not to. Today, the surviving spouse wishes otherwise.

It could be argued that their employer (their government) has as much to do with their deaths as the murderer.

How about this? A duty of a patriot is to protect his country from its government.

I will stand with those who do the same. And I will enjoy watching the antigunners shoot the antigunners. It will make my day. Can tell antigunners due to the lack of a gun. Will be many of them. Dying will at some point get them armed up simply out of the will to survive as it should be. Welcome to war 2.0

USA

How bout this can’t protect ppl from themselves.

Wild Bill

Z, While I admire your enthusiasm, I must point out that presidents do not have the authority to rescind acts of Congress with a stroke of the pen. A president, as a co-equal branch of the federal government and equal to Congress and the judiciary, could declare the NFA, GCA, and the Hughes amendment unconstitutional. A president could also declare that the other branches lack authority to make him enforce them. A president could also order the Sec of the Treasury to decommission the BATFE.

USA

Truth.
So then perhaps you can explain why Trump says to pack heat regardless of the law because criminals do not obey it and Americans must protect their lives when he could simply do as you state? Why does he chose to create criminals out of law abiding Americans?
Is there hidden logic that I am missing or is he simply full of shit?

Wild Bill

@USA Doing so would be very controversial, and Trump wants a second term. Trump has not ” … create[d] criminals out of law abiding Americans?” It was an act of Congress signed by a previous POTUS.

USA

Right, dont protect the law abiding from unconstitutional laws. Demand gun confiscation at state level. 2nd term, got it. Hope he can swim.

You would need to add an ‘n’ to ‘caning’ to ‘can’ them like ‘tuna’; however l do like the idea. A ‘caning’ , pronounced ‘kay-neeng’ refers to a beating with a switch or baton like instrument which might do a lot of politicos some good .

USA

Great minds think alike brother.

USA

Ol’ Folks around here say Americans been selling each other and country out for far too long and now will walk the plank or fight.
They’re much smarter than posters due to the historical advantage and better schooling before all the MS-13 and rainbow fag flag invasion/subversion stuff.

Any degradation of Constitutional rights is NOT no big thing. It’s an Orwellian bump and nudge in the direction of subservience to THE STATE and ONLY THOSE FEW WHO KNOW BEST AND MATTER!
I like President Trump but believe that he has surrounded himself with closet leftists who do not have America’s best interest in mind. Not being a gun guy, he has no idea when he’s being snowed by some 2A “expert.”

USA

He’s actually just full of shit. 10 lbs of it in a 5 lb sack.
But yeah, he is surrounded with his own kind that HE selected.
Note* I voted for him so I can say this. It is my right.

USA

Ban Muslim prayer rugs. Give me something, anything.

Stu Johnson

BULLSHIT, in this country we have a bill of rights which is supposed to protect rights like owning cool firearms and also RELIGION OF OUR CHOICE. I know good honest people who are Muslim and I am seriously pissed about bigotry. It serves only to further divide and distract from the real problems that we face. Thomas Jefferson fought for religious freedom including Islam. There are bad people and good people of all backgrounds. I’ve put up with racisim and religious bigotry and am PISSED, its pure bullshit And I am very conservitive, I was worried about hillary getting in,… Read more »

Thomas Jefferson formed the Marines commonly referred to as the Lesthernecks and declared war on Muslims sending them overseas to fight the Muslim pirates who were holding USA for ransom. Marines placed thick leather collars around their necks to protect from having their heads cut off thus ultimately getting the nickname “Leathernecks” and in their anthem the part that goes “from the shores of Tripoli” is refferenced from the battle when Marines slaughtered the Muslim pirates.
Thanks for bringing up history now go learn some.

When Trump took office supporters demanded Soros be locked up and Trump said to leave soros alone that he’s an old man but you who are doing nothing and minding your own business are being sanctioned for things you are no part of and you think a republic still exists when in fact it is by legal definition a tyranny and ultimately why you are being scrutinized as a villain by the thought police. Vote for more like last time.

JoeUSooner

Vote for more?? More economic growth, more national security, stronger foreign policy? Better overall standard of living (especially for my grandchildren) and slower attacks on 2nd Amendment? You can damned-well bet I’ll vote for more of that… because it is the best choice I can make – those clowns in the Democrat Party offer NOTHING to me or to society in general. And those Socialist cuckoo-clocks would be even more (overtly and dangerously) aggressive about full-bore gun-control. I’ll sanely take the lesser of the two evils, thank you, without letting any “pet peeve” disappointments over smaller issues make me turn… Read more »

USA

Trump is the first politician to actually get gun confiscation which is not slower gun control and he wiped out the entire Bill of Rights in doing so in my state but nice try.
Loooooool.

USA

Bet you a million dollars Trump could never ban rainbow fag flags without being sued and civil unrest.
See where I’m going with this?

USA

BLM raising hell in TN. Courts shooting down Trumps stuff. Antifa back out from the meth house and Trump throws supporters under the bus as if his supporters are doing something wrong when we’re minding our own business causing nobody any harm. Trump is con man full of BS.
Bull shitter in Chief. Apple with worm in it.

Your article is entirely too long. It can be shorted down to two words: The NRA.

TangoFighter

You guys are clearly stoned. Stop with the medical marijuana already. Any Demtard is worse than Trump. So he backslides on gun rights… The Dems want to TAKE OUR GUNS AWAY! Get with the program guys, no one is on our side; we have to take the best next thing.

ahhiyawa

I’ll bet you have never taken Trump to task on any issue let alone his 2nd amendment “backslides.” Your jeremiad against gun owners should be directed at your dear leader, not your fellows who have suffered innumerable betrayals galore. We have heard it all before; shut up, buck it up and get on with the program if you know what’s good for you. The Democrats, RINO’s, anti-Trump Republicans and deep stater’s want infinitely more than just merely taking away your toys. They want to kill America, overturn the constitution and exterminate the Bill of Rights, submerging this country into a… Read more »

Thank you!
I vote for war until they change my mind. I’m staying home. Let him sink or swim.

If you want to willingly settle for something less than what you desire that’s on you. That’s what losers do. I am not going to do that.

J Gibbons

Not really. In a two-party political system, losers are those who dig their heels in and sacrifice the war for the sake of a single battle. He’s done some really dumb stuff, but if Trump loses the primary then Commies will have the White House for another 8 years. When they change voting laws and grant asylum, they’ll be able to buy D votes for a decade or more.

Rob

Well, history has shown us Republicans have given us more gun control, especially “Republican” presidents. Sadly too many people worship these “presidents like they’re 2nd Amendment champions, Reagan effectively banned machine guns, both Bush’s gave us terrible import bans, the WAY Trump banned bumpstocks will be used by the next democrat to go after what ever they please. What’s worse is that there are so called 2nd Amendment supporters that seem fine with this, there is nothing fine with this.

David

Well,

How about NFA of 1934 – FDR. How about GCA of 1968? LBJ. How about the AWB and limiting ten shot magazine capacity? Clinton, 1994. How soon we forget when we feed on the people who have shown us some support.

Wild Bill

, I think Rob has ulterior motives for his mischaracterizations. The Hughes in Hughes amendment was a NJ Democrat. So really it was all democrats that created these unconstitutional acts of Congress.

ahhiyawa

My open letter to President Trump: Mr. President Your biggest cheers at your rallies were when you would declare yourself a 2nd amendment defender. Lately such effusions by attendees have been a little muted, due primarily to your multiple treacheries over bump stocks, no due process for gun owners, supporting the raising of the age of gun ownership to 21, your stated desire to ban silencers and swapping spit with anti gun Senator Feinstein and British gun grabber Piers Morgan. Creating firestorms in the minds of your enemies is one thing, but igniting controversy within the ranks of one of… Read more »

We are one election away from Communist tyranny. When the Communists take the presidency and both houses its good by 2nd Amendment. Today the Communists think they have public opinion on their side. Every massacre that occurs gives the Communists votes. I absolutely believe the FBI could have prevented many of the massacres but were ordered not to. Public opinion must be against guns, any and all. And the FBI is a player for the Commies. They are fearless and believe that Americans will surrender their guns, ammo, and freedoms. Some how, some way the Communists must be convinced that… Read more »

Here’s what gun control is all about.
Keep sitting there while this spreads. Your compliance is demanded. Religion of peace will have some peace when they kill you right in your own country while Trump bans your stuff.

Pelosi announced “millions will die” if she can’t be Speaker so Trump endorsed her and made sure she had the votes.
Gave her a job and not a Red Flag.
Did you forget about this?

A vote for Trump is a vote for Pelosi?

Barry is proud of Trump.

Ever notice how the same traitors circulate around and no real Americans get in?
Think it is just a coincidence?
Hell they put in Muslims before you or me.
A real American is the biggest threat to all of them.

The future of humanity is patiently waiting for Ms. Pelosi, to live up to her per-determined destiny.

Let me relate what happened to me when I tried to inform one of my US Senators concerning this matter. Last week I called the OKC office of Senator Lankford. I explained to the woman who answered the phone the seriousness of Trump banning bump stocks and his statements about suppressors and how that was likely going to negatively affect turnout and therefore votes for Trump and other Republican office holders. She then told me that they don’t care about votes, they just do “the right thing.” I wasn’t sure that she had said that and a minute later she… Read more »

You got off light, they show up in unmarked cars at my home in the city burbs when I contact them and yet somehow posters are still stupid enough to think we’re one step away from total communism. This time everyone is going to learn a lesson the hard way. Not all of them are against us but when they all look the same how is a person able to tell them apart. Hard lesson rolling out.

Patrick Shannon

It’s more than just the bump stock betrayal and the suppressor betrayal. There was also the red flag “take them now and due process later” betrayal. And regarding suppressors, his administration reportedly (according the AP) actually advised the Supreme Court NOT to take the GOA-supported suppressor case, and to let the convictions stand! These are not just acts of omission, or failures to act… they are ACTS of betrayal that did not need to happen at all. He is doing the Left’s work for them. Four strikes… and he’s out.

USA

Don’t forget the take them now due process later was still based upon an innocent person convicted of no crime though I still do not support taking guns from any person. Lefty’s threaten violence upon others every day and last time I checked it is for the most part lawful to state what they say so again taking guns from a person excersizing their 1A is the definition of blatant tyranny. An actual insult and slap across the face to everything America stands for not to leave out the fact that his decision to throw the Constitution in the trash… Read more »

Correct.
Zero in.
The comment is succinct and in line.
Reads as follows: “He is doing the Left’s work for them.”

-Case in point, The Recent wave of ERPO. aka Red Flag Laws, they have super zoomed, since when…..?
– Since March 18, 2018, from POTUS. His words, from his pie hole.
Facts matter.

@No Sir, Eight more years of Obama rather than four more of “trump”? I think that I got you pegged.

Trump needs a massive “think bump” to the top of his fluff covered skull. That was my father’s approach to wrong thinking.

I’m sick of this nonsense. Kavanaugh is not pro gun he is pro precedent. I have not seen Gorsuch say or do enough either way. As far as I can tell they are fudds. Trump is an anti gun fudd too. I would rather lose to democrats that support people who are “less anti gun” which is debatable. I think if they thought they could get away with it these people would be as anti gun as democrats.

I agree completely. If the scotus nominations were worth a damn they’d i don’t know maybe take a case? At the very least trump losing would wake up all the people asleep at the switch right now. When they see that the bumpstock ban morphs into a executive fiat semi auto ban trumps betrayal will be clear. Honestly at this point I’d take 8 more years of Obama than another 4 of trump. It won’t be fun but I won’t be alone fighting this crap.

USA

Remember when Barry was licking Michael Robinson’s nuts in The White House writing and signing laws like Mao, Lenin & Hitler the same Republicans there now sat back jerking off and applauding Barry like he was god.
I know I’m breaking the rules by not forgetting history like a good slave but I remember quite clearly they applauded the fag (gay misspelled backwards).

Think I hit the wrong “reply” button on this stamp sized device darn it. I’m in the Bush what can I say. Shit.

I can’t even believe the shortsighted full retardation it takes to even suggest that 8 more years of Obama would be better. Are you fucking kidding me? You zealots are single issue morons that would compromise our country over bump stocks and suppressor rhetoric. WTF!?!? I stand proudly behind my 2nd amendment rights and I covet my firearms as much as the next guy, but there’s no way that I’m gonna take 20 steps backwards into a democratic socialist state under the leadership of some sniveling soy drinking progressive leftist just because Trump pissed on bumpstocks and suppressors.

I never owned any of that gear in question but can clearly see precedent being made in the wrong direction. I’m not against Trump but he’s clearly licking his own nuts on this stuff like previous dictators throughout history. Let him try and win 2020 without our support and lose then we’ll have some real fun. Meltdown coming.

tomcat

No Sir, If that is your honest decision I hate to tell you it is as wrong as it can get. More Obumer would definitely finish this Republic. Remember “fundamentally transform” the kenyon sure tried to do that.

USA

No longer a republic but rather replaced with a tyranny. All steps of tyranny now 100% complete so to still think it is a republic is totally delusional.

tomcat

USA, You sure are one angry dude. I would hate to have to live the life you project with no positives.

Wild Bill

@Tcat, Yeah, not one righteous comment. All conclusions, … very unfounded … negative conclusions.

USA

tyranny is not a positive. It’s a negative and anybody that looks up it’s definition will understand tyranny has replaced the republic. Not rocket science.

USA

And furthermore Barry announced on tv the final death blow to the republic years ago and they cheered. Guess you missed it. I was angry then too. I get that way when my Homeland is destroyed.
