Trump’s Plain Talk: ‘If Left Wins, They Will Confiscate Guns, Wipe Away 2A’ ~ VIDEO

President Donald Trump warned during his acceptance speech that the Second Amendment is in jeopardy in this fall's elections. (Screen snip, YouTube, C-SPAN)

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- President Donald Trump made it clear during his acceptance speech on the White House lawn that a Joe Biden victory in November will be bad news for American gun owners and the Bill of Rights.

“If the left gains power,” the president warned, “they will demolish the suburbs, confiscate your guns and appoint justices who will wipe away your Second Amendment and other constitutional freedoms.”

It was one of two references Trump made about the right to keep and bear arms during his speech on the final night of the virtual Republican National Convention. Writing for the Detroit Free Press, reporter Todd Spangler described the speech as “long on exaggerated claims and fear-mongering.”

But even a cursory glance at Biden’s “plan to end gun violence” suggests the president wasn’t exaggerating at all. AmmoLand News took a hard look at the Biden plan here, which the establishment media apparently hasn’t done.

In the audience of about 1,500 people was Alan Gottlieb, founder and executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation and chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

Trump reminded his audience and viewers across the country about his success in filling federal court vacancies, soon to be 300+, including two seats on the U.S. Supreme Court. A second term would allow him to possibly fill one or two more high court positions.

By no small coincidence, Gottlieb referred to the president’s court appointments in a CCRKBA news release on the first day of the convention.

“Donald Trump,” Gottlieb observed, “has fulfilled one of his most important campaign pledges to America’s 100 million gun owners. The president has been filling federal court vacancies with experienced, constitutional judges who understand the Second Amendment means what it says.”

Underscoring this point was the opinion issued just days ago in the California case of Duncan v. Becerra, striking down the state’s ban on so-called “large-capacity magazines” as a violation of the Second Amendment. The opinion was authored by Circuit Judge Kenneth K. Lee, a Trump appointment.

While Trump’s speech is being savaged by the establishment media, it should be noted that, once again, the president made a point of mentioning the Second Amendment and the importance of protecting it.

He habitually refers to the amendment in public appearances, typically noting it is under constant threat from the political Left.

Near the end of his one hour and ten-minute speech, the president stated, “And if we don’t win, your Second Amendment doesn’t have a chance. I can tell you that. I have totally protected it.”

The president made a comment that could become the lightning rod slogan for his campaign.

“Tonight I ask you a simple question,” he challenged from a stage largely backed and flanked by American flags. “How can the Democrat party ask to lead our country when it spends so much time tearing down our country?”

That observation brought a standing ovation, one of many by the audience during the late evening acceptance speech.

Trump quickly followed the question with a blunt assessment.

“In the left’s backward view,” he stated, “they do not see America as the most free, just and exceptional nation on earth. Instead they see a wicked nation that must be punished for its sins. Our opponents say that redemption for you can only come from giving power to them. This is a tired anthem spoken by every repressive movement throughout history.”

While it was long—a fact on which most observers agree—Trump’s acceptance speech hit the right tone with his base, and pulled no punches in its contrast with what a Democrat victory in November could mean. President Trump predicted the nation will suffer if Biden and his running mate, anti-gun Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) win Nov. 3.

What it will mean to gun owners and the Second Amendment seems clear. Filling federal court vacancies with conservative judges will cease. If there are vacancies on the Supreme Court, they would be filled with liberal justices. New restrictive gun regulations could be signed into law, including a permanent ban on so-called “assault weapons.”

The campaign will shift into high gear following the Labor Day weekend, not just for the White House, but for the U.S. House of Representatives, several seats in the U.S. Senate, and nearly all state legislatures and some governorships.

The critical involvement of gun owners is underscored by the creation of “Gun Owners for Trump,” launched just days ago as part of the overall Trump re-election campaign.

There are 18 members on the board including CCRKBA’s Gottlieb, plus Barrett Firearms President Ronnie Barrett, Olympic gold medalist Kim Rhode, competition shooters Gabby Franco and Lanny Barnes; Rick Ector, CEO at the Firearms Academy of Detroit; Amy Robbins, CEO at Alexo Athletica and TV host; retired Army Sgt. Major Kyle Lamb; Eye on the Target radio host Amanda Suffecool; author and motivational speaker Marsha Petrie Sue; Neil Hogue, with Hogue Knives and firearms accessories, along with Matthew Gomez, Thibault Bowman, Mia Rhode, Barbara Rumpel, Esther Schneider, Beth Walker, and Linda Walker.

Their primary mission will be to get out the “gun vote” in November, an effort also being pushed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

The Orange Infringer talking tough on gun rights is hilarious considering he’s enacted more arms control than the previous two administrations combined.

There is a large scale sickness in the United States and I’m not talking about covid-19 I refer to all the liberals and democrats that have been elected to political office over the last thirty or so years. These people do not support and defend the constitution for which they took an oath to when sworn in to office. The American people have failed to think about the results to them when they elect a person who will not stand for the values the founding fathers had in mind and put in writing as a template for freedom.

It has been estimated there are somewhere between one hundred million and two hundred fifty million gun owners in the United States. No one knows for sure and that is a good thing. It is also said the average number of guns owned by each of those gun owners is seven point something but for the sake of this writing we will use a whole number and say seven. So how many are there here in the United States of America? You do the math.  We also know I presume ammunition can be used for other things other than used in a gun. So the ammo would… Read more »

Some have already given up their guns out of fear of death or prison. In this case, death would equal freedom! No more bills, no more worries, no more working in a sweat shop. Instead, freedom in paradise!

I strongly support President Trump. However, when it comes to the 2nd Amendment talk is cheap. He “supports” it, but what does that mean? The one thing he has done for sure is taken away the right of 340 million Americans to own a bump stock because one deranged individual committed a crime with one. Those that owned them weren’t even compensated for their loss. Why isn’t his Justice Department going after the organizations and the people funding them that are openly campaigning to take away our rights? Do we each need to hang a noose in the front window,… Read more »

As opposed to Republicans? I remember someone saying “The eight year assault on the second amendment has come to a crashing end.” That person then went on to ban a firearm accessory, sign arms control into law with the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018, call for a ban on silencers, call for increasing the age to purchase, call for more background checks, and advocate for red flag laws and the TAPS Act. If you think it’s only Democrats lying and violating your rights then their political theater has fooled you.

If the dems win, they will absolutely start the process of abolishing the 2nd Amendment. Joe has already stated he will ban ‘Assault Weapons’ on his first day in office, by executive order (even tho’ he doesn’t know what they are).

If the left, the demoncrapic socialist party, wins they will do the same things that Hitler did, that Stalin did, that Mao did, that Lol Pot did, that Imine did, that Chavez did, etc. They will enslave the citizenry by disarming the citizenry. The past century is full of documentable facts that support this. We KNOW what will happen to America if they disarm us. We must not be disarmed —- ever. Get out and vote. Use the ballot box. It MIGHT save us from using the cartridge box but I think it’s already past that point. Either way, it’s… Read more »

@DB – Oh I do think it is supply and demand. Supply of raw materials has been practically cut off, so that manufacturers couldn’t run at capacity if they had their full staff. I suspect many governmental agencies are stocking up at the same time that new gun owners and concerned existing gun owners are increasing demand. So yes supply forced down and demand pushed up (naturally & by government). Some of us don’t see situation improving for an extended period, if ever. Surplus has dried up for my C&R firearms and new manufacture will never be that cheap. If… Read more »

During the obama bin laden presidency the government purchased 5.5 BILLION rounds of 40 Smith and Wesson. To give everyone an idea of the quantity this would completely service the Irak war for 25years. Add to that the epa closed down the last lead smelting plant in the USA. This was not an accident, they purposely drove up the price of ammo 4x plus. Yes it is supply and demand but it’s forged.

We better do everything in our power to vote, make sure everyone in our family votes. All our friends and even new gun owners… there’s over 5 million of them this year alone.

It’s easier to vote than to fight the consequences of inaction.

“confiscate your guns and appoint justices who will wipe away your Second Amendment and other constitutional freedoms.”

I don’t think so.

Patriots will simply hunt them down and kill them. They’ll know who they are, where they live, where they work. They’ll kill their parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren, pets, goats, chickens, hogs – kill it all. They’ll kill anyone who tries to intercede, they’ll jailbreak any Patriot that gets detained. Get it??

As Lt Spears said in Band of Brothers – “Without mercy, without compassion, without remorse”.

Deterrent – plain and simple. Patriots will not be seeking revenge for anything, just protecting freedom.

China Joe Biden has hired over 600 lawyers to contest virtually every city election. CNN just announced that hundreds of lawyers have volunteered to contest every vote, polling place and election. COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS will pull out all their dirty tricks to steal this presidential election. If China Biden wins, there will be NO United States, but there will be a communist America. China Biden and California Governor Newsom have agreements with communist China to enforce communist democrat rule. Unfortunately, most all Americans are weak, cowardly and fat. They will sell their souls, rat out gun owners and those that love… Read more »

tetejuan; These corrections need to be made in your good comment:
joe 0biden would not control America. ‘k.harris’ would control a “communist ameriKKKa” by using article #25 on 0biden.
Most Americans are not weak. Many are weak due to the American Constitution and OUR SUPREME LAW of the LAND has not been taught for GENERATIONS. The Communists who control the BRAIN WASHING ORGANIZATIONS have been teaching OBEDIENCE to government instead of INDEPENDENCE AND SELF-RELIANCE.
