Trump: Hillary Wants To Abolish The 2nd Amendment

The Donald has had a very busy weekend. He engaged in a Twitter war with Elizabeth “Fake Indian” Warren, nicknaming her “Goofy”, and doing what no politician who says he’s a Republican would do: calling her out for her fake Indian background. Then there’s this

(The Hill) Donald Trump threw a new claim Hillary Clinton’s way at a Saturday rally, telling the crowd that she wants to do away with the Second Amendment.

“Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to abolish it,” Trump said at a Saturday rally in Lynden, Wash. “Hillary Clinton wants to take your guns away and she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to take the bullets away.”

“We’re going to cherish the Second Amendment, we’re going to take care of the Second Amendment.”

Obviously, the media went into overdrive in saying that Hillary has proposed no such thing

Clinton is in favor of universal background checks, closing loopholes on gun purchases and increasing restrictions on domestic abusers and the mentally ill. And she wants to repeal the law that prevents victims of gun violence from suing retailers or manufacturers, among other measures.

But Clinton said at a recent event that “we can’t ignore the Second Amendment” and has never proposed ending legal gun ownership entirely.

Does Hillary want to do away with the 2nd? It’s obviously campaign trail hyperbole, based on the notion that many Liberals do, in fact, want to do away with the 2nd. But, since that would be damned near impossible, they will use things like “universal background checks” to deny people firearms ownership for the most minuscule of reasons. They want extra taxes on firearms and ammunition, making them too expensive. They want government tracking at all times. They want victims of shootings to sue firearms makers. Do we sue alcohol makers when a person gets drunk, gets behind the wheel, and hits someone? Do we sue a bathtub manufacturer when we fall in the bathtub? There’s no reason other than litigating gun manufacturers out of business (well, throwing a sop to the lawyers who back Democrats, of course).

This is the Democratic Party playbook. Go for a big big “comprehensive” law, while also doing a “death by a 1,000 papercuts” method. They say they support women, but, they want to disarm women, leaving them at risk from criminals. Speaking of women, Trump also took on Bill Clinton’s misogyny and treatment of women, tying Hillary in

Trump said the former secretary of State was an “enabler” who “treated these women horribly.”

“Some of those women were destroyed … by the way Hillary Clinton treated them after it went down,” he said.

Say what you will about Trump, he knows buttons, and unlike most elected Republicans, he doesn’t push the button once in a shot across the bow. He continues to fire shot after shot after shot. You can expect that Trump will continue to push certain memes from now until election day.
