Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Second Amendment People

Donald Trump, 2nd Amendment, gun rights, Hillary Clinton, assasination

Donald Trump states things in a manner simultaneously ambiguous and incendiary.

Of course, he has help from the media, the Clinton camp and other embittered opponents, all elated to act as firestorm propellants . . . through as many 24-hour news cycles as possible.

At a rally this week, Trump claimed that a President Hillary Clinton would appoint justices to the Supreme Court committed to undermining our individual right to bear arms. “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” he told the crowd, before adding, off-the-cuff, “Although the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know.”

The Clinton campaign and much of the media (but I repeat myself) immediately took this as a clear call to Second Amendment activists to . . . well, summarily execute Mrs. Clinton.

A leap? As Hillary would say, “Let’s unpack this.”

Would Mrs. Clinton curtail gun rights as Trump charges? She recently told Fox News that she would not choose justices seeking to overturn the High Court ruling in the Heller case, which interpreted the Second Amendment as guaranteeing an individual gun right.

Do I trust her? Stop laughing and read on.

Was the Donald attempting to incite violence against Hillary? No.

But what should be the people’s response were a future president or court to declare our right to defend ourselves null and void?

Remember, musket-armed American patriots met the British redcoats at Lexington and Concord for the shot heard ’round the world. Why? Specifically to stop the Brits from rendering the colonists defenseless by confiscating their arms and ammunition.

The implication? Clear.

So, with a chill down the back of our necks, let’s hone and redouble our peaceful support for our most basic right, self-defense.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    And let us ever loose sight that in the last 100 years the greatest number of murders, by far, were perpetrated against governments AGAINST THEIR OWN CITIZENS and disarming the citizens normally came first..
    As for the anticipated outcry that such “cannot happen here”, in my lifetime the “cannot happens” are occurring here with ever greater frequency.

    1774: The Royal Governor of Massachusetts dissolved the colony’s elected assembly, and began to rule by decree. American colonists started to stock up on muskets, powder, cannons, and other implements of war.
    April 1775: he sent troops to seize these supplies, Americans resisted, and a six-year revolution resulted.
    2008: The Obama Administration shredded the Constitution, and initiated rule by decree. American citizens began to stock up on firearms. ammunition, and survival supplies.
    Dec 2015: Obama sought to extend his unconstitutional attack on American liberties, with gun control edicts. Americans continue to buy guns in unprecedented numbers.
    Apr 2016: The mighty Hilldog and the yapping spawn of our current administration make noises about gun confiscation.
    We’ll have to see whether history repeats itself. The difference is, unlike the British in the 18th century, the leftists (including fake Indians) of today purport to fear and despise guns, so next time I’d bet on the folks who “cling” to them.
