2020 is Trump's to Blow with Gun Owners

By David Codrea for Firearms News


If the betrayals we've seen from Trump so far are indicative of a willingness to infringe even further, we're entering frog in heating pot territory.

"We did it once and now we will do it again, and this time we’re going to finish the job, and this time should be a lot easier because we have done so much with our military, with our vets, with the Second Amendment," President Donald Trump told wildly enthusiastic supporters at his 2020 campaign kickoff rally in Orlando. "In the face of new threats, we will defend privacy, free speech, religious liberty, and the right to keep and bear arms. We will protect our Second Amendment."

Those are great words, aren’t they? When was the last time you heard a president say them? That alone is a refreshing change.

So how’s he doing on actions to back them up?

Before we explore that, let’s get some things stated right up front, because “experience hath shewn” that any criticism of the president on guns draws no small amount of furious “Would you rather have Hillary”?” diversions from a faction of apologist gun owners ready to eviscerate anyone who suggests the emperor’s new clothes are anything short of magnificent. Besides, any perceived reversals of campaign pledges can always be rationalized as 3D chess moves by a guy playing at a level the whiners just aren’t savvy enough to understand.

Let’s stipulate up front that if Trump loses the presidency to any of the Democrats who have thrown their hats in the ring, successful attacks on the Second Amendment will go through the roof. The balance of power in the Supreme Court and lower federal courts will go through a polar reversal. And the tens of millions of illegal immigrants moved to the fast lane on the – forget “pathway” – superhighway to citizenship could just mean the Republican Party will be doomed as a credible counterweight.

Gun owners will be screwed. The hope for peaceable means of redress will be just that. This time, when Dianne Feinstein says “Mr. and Mrs. America turn 'em all,” your choice will be to obey or become a “gun criminal” at risk for life-destroying penalties with the choice to either fight or hope the amped-up assault team coming through your door allows you to surrender.

Are you ready to go outlaw, and domestic “Red Dawn,” with no end in sight until resulting festivities are over? No? Then you’d better hope the Democrats can be held back.

Which makes it fair to ask “At what cost?”

Unsatisfied Customers

OK, so if that’s the case, why bring up Donald Trump back-sliding on the Second Amendment and jeopardize his chances? Would I rather see Dopey Joe, or Fauxcahontas, or Bernie the Bolshevik, or (an as-yet unannounced but don’t be surprised) Marxist Michelle win?

If the betrayals we’ve seen from Trump so far are indicative of a willingness to infringe even further, we’re entering frog in heating pot territory. Slow sellouts rationalized as “necessary compromises” might get us to the same place as out-and-out full frontal blitzes, but they’ll do it in such a way that most won’t think to jump until it’s too late.

Unlikely? Based on what? Besides, don’t tell me, tell the gun owners threatening to sit the election out because the president has already shown what they’re convinced are his true colors. Many insist he still ultimately believes in his past statements when he expressed support for bans on semi-automatic firearms, waiting periods, and ending private sales. Many have not forgotten his past actions, when he made substantial contributions to the likes of the Clinton Foundation, Chuck Schumer, Frank Lautenberg, Ted Kennedy, Harry Reid and Charlie Rangel.

Has everyone seen the acronym “TINVOWOOT”? It stands for “There Is No Voting Our Way Out of This,” and it’s being expressed in a growing number of internet comments following political articles, on blogs and in forums. Lest you think it’s just a handful, of bellyachers, consider the reality that the upcoming election promise... CONTINUE READING HERE

I really do my best to shit post on Donnie Jr's instagram whenever he posts his shooting exploits.

Like I try to be within the first 50 comments if possible.

Such a shit show in terms of what his son owns and enjoys doing as opposed to what his father is doing to us.

Better than Hillary sure.

But now my ONLY reason to vote Trump is if RBG will just hurry up and die. But not at the cost of more shitty assed gun comments and decisions.

Looks like I should have sent tons of cash to Swallowswell's campaign instead of supporting Trump.

Trump is going to lose badly in 2020.

Gun owners won't be the primary cause but it didn't help. It was Trumps job to convince voters to pull the lever for him. Not mine and not anyone elses.

I'll be honest with you. No, I'm not happy about the bump stock ban, nor am I happy about red flag laws, and, in addition, I'm pissed at President Trump for telling Piers Morgan that he does not like silencers. Ok?

Trump is a NYC rich boy who knows little about 2A issues. I have hope that his son, junior, can talk some sense into his dad. We can hope. But a doom and gloom gun ban under Trump, I just can't see it.

It will be the economy that decides this.

My wife is a recovered liberal, feminist, New Jersey born and Mass practicing SJW attorney... I claim credit for fixing her. She recently voted straight republican/conservative. She thinks Trump is a sleaze ball (he is), but she supports most of his policies. She also commented that her 401K has never performed better. On the 4th, she walked out on a family gathering of her liberal relatives for their nonsensical TDS.

The right will vote for him because he’s not the left. The middle will vote for him if the economy is chugging along and they see THEIR lifestyle improving. They simply won’t care about the screeching from the left about inequality if it isn’t impacting them personally.

If the economy tanks, he’d done, expect to see the Fed try to tank it in December with interest rates.
Link Posted: 7/9/2019 4:17:43 PM EDT
Interesting article.

I'm firmly in the camp of doing everything possible to keep conservative judges being appointed for as long as possible. This gives us our best chance of success (loosely defined as keeping our rights relatively intact for the next generation).

I don't believe Trump gives a shit about the 2nd one way or another. We need to keep pressure on him so that he thinks it is in his best interesting to support us. It is in our best interest to support him for now.

Ohio is one of the best states for the 2A - look it up. Did your state ever legalize short-barred shotguns or rifles? Always legal here and Ohio was at one time only second to Texas in machine-gun ownership - FAAAAAR ahead of your state. But, Alabama is a great state so I'm not here to knock it.

the jury is still out on Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. Gorsuch is fine with NFA restrictions and does not feel that they infringe on the 2A and Kavanaugh would rather rule based on precedent than on Founder's intent. But, maybe that's fine with you. Obviously, you commented without reading the article.

I think there is a lot of truth to what your saying.

I don't think that is the only factor, though. A new war, gun owners being pissed at him in any percentage.

The rust belt returning to the democrats after flirting with trump. It's not as if Trump created an entirely new class of loyalist voter in the rust belt and he barely squeaked by because of that region.

It really isn't about red state vs blue state anymore. It's about rural vs city. Texas and AZ are both in very high danger of turning blue because of this. It is very, very difficult to root out rural voters and get them to the polls. It's my prediction and If nothing changes, I am sticking by it. I don't see a lot of new democrats that love Trump or will even vote fo rhim over a Democrat but I do see a lot of pissed off Republicans.

I think Trump was his own worst enemy.

Yup, some people just can't see that for some reason. I mean WTF?

President Trump is not perfect, but he is doing a pretty damn good job if you were to ask me. Far, by far more positives with this president than negatives.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. One point of the article is that we must hold EVERY politician's feet to the fire regarding their voting record and what they do while in office NOT JUST HANG ON EVERY WORD THEY UTTER.

Judge appointments??? Gorsuch is fine with NFA restrictions and does not feel that they infringe on the 2A and Kavanaugh would rather rule based on precedent than on Founder's intent. But, maybe that's fine with you. Obviously, you commented without reading the entire article or you are OK with this.

Let me ask you something since you " fucking A right I will vote for Trump again." Have you EVER written to the Trump campaign and explained why you are dissatisfied with Trump's support for gun control? Yes or no. If you have not, what was the reason? A) Laziness, B) you agree with: red flag laws, bump stock bans, possible suppressor bans, under 21 bans, states passing gun control without any comments from the WH, anti-gun attorney general appointment, etc. C) you are the team player and support the team at any cost D) Busy shooting guns in Alaska

Same

Edit: Thought I think that would be political suicide and the chance of it happening before the election are very low. 2nd term? Who knows, nothing to lose.

I loved the authors comment about the distraction/diversion people use with the statement of "would you rather have Hillary?" I wonder if the author is an arfcommer?

The rust belt returning to the democrats after flirting with trump. It's not as if Trump created an entirely new class of loyalist voter in the rust belt and he barely squeaked by because of that region.

It really isn't about red state vs blue state anymore. It's about rural vs city. Texas and AZ are both in very high danger of turning blue because of this. It is very, very difficult to root out rural voters and get them to the polls. It's my prediction and If nothing changes, I am sticking by it. I don't see a lot of new democrats that love Trump or will even vote fo rhim over a Democrat but I do see a lot of pissed off Republicans.

I think Trump was his own worst enemy.

The right will vote for him because he’s not the left. The middle will vote for him if the economy is chugging along and they see THEIR lifestyle improving. They simply won’t care about the screeching from the left about inequality if it isn’t impacting them personally.

If the economy tanks, he’d done, expect to see the Fed try to tank it in December with interest rates.

You made a very good point and its another important factor:
"The rust belt returning to the democrats after flirting with trump. It's not as if Trump created an entirely new class of loyalist voter in the rust belt and he barely squeaked by because of that region."

The democrats have shifted to the states anyway and they are focused like a laser on the cities in those states.

Gun banners are going apeshit all over the country now and the federal bans are nowhere to be seen.

Trump doesn't matter. He can't veto the hundreds of state bills currently being introduced.

The Supreme court will not hear many of the bans anyway.

The Democrats won and will continue to win until we disobey their bans en masse and they decide it isn't worth it.

It's clear how this is going.

Good article.

I really dislike single issue voters. The long term effects of the federal courts matter more than bump stocks
