    "Trump warns of 'attack' on 2nd Amendment ahead of Virginia gun rights rally"

    https://thehill.com/homenews/admini...on-2nd-amendment-ahead-of-virginia-gun-rights"

    Remember when Presidents use to unite people, use their office to quell potential volatile situations?

    Now we have a clown, who for his own personal political ends, strokes those temperaments, talks about "attacks" with dozens of Barney Fifles walking around Richmond looking like GI Joe with beer bellies

    Beautiful, again, welcome to Trump's greater America

    Here you are complaining about the bold, and then turning right around and saying the red part. So much for using your pulpit here at PF for uniting huh?

    BTW, Trump is right. It is under attack. And nothing in any of those gun control laws is going to do a damn thing to reduce "gun violence" (a misnomer if I've ever heard one).

    Now tell us, how guns did Obama take away? Eight years of NRA, aka gun manufacturers, dire warnings that Obama was going to confiscate guns in America, and how many were taken away?

    And returning to the topic, Presidents, real leaders, don't employ rhetoric as "attacks" in volatile situations, they do their best to reduce temperaments for everyone's safety

    Surprising how a person can think they're being a smart ass and be right on the money. :)

    Not at all, my comments hardly compare to employing such rhetoric as "attack" in midst of a volatile situation, nor am I in a leadership position

    Whether Trump is right or not is debatable, but describing it the way he is doing it is not, as I mentioned, past Presidents urged public safety not playing to temperaments for personal political ends, a real leader wouldn't describe an "attack" to people carrying guns into a crowd

    I've never understood gun laws. How is me killing person A with a gun, then killing person B with a knife? What is the difference in that person being killed? Dead is dead.

    Trump is right. Your cheap shots are very Trump-like. You must admire him to emulate him as you do.

    Such has not been the case in the united states for at least five administrations now.

    Donald Trump is not so much a problem, but rather a symptom of the problem. But treating the symptoms does not serve to address the problem, only make it less noticeable so one can feign ignorance and pretend there is no problem in need of being dealt with.

    Cause under normal circumstances, knifes, which are useful tools and aren't primarily used to kill people, can't kill large numbers of people in the matter of seconds, guns can, and guns have little purpose other than killing people

    They find murder committed using other methods more palatable, for example: Death by illegal alien!

    Not so sure of that, during past tense domestic situations, for example police shootings or urban riots, I don't recall Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Carter, etc., ever taking sides, telling one side they were being attacked, attemptimg in real time to manipulate it for their own political benefit

    You are correct, Trump is not the cause of the problem, it runs deeper, but Trump is pimping the problem for his own benefit, demogoguing it, usually a behavior not seen in leaders let alone Presidents

    What's this like the fifth time with the same quote?

    Well to settle it, (https://www.factcheck.org/2011/01/obama-guns-and-the-untouchables/) and Obama wasn't President nor referring to a real time volatile situation at the time

    Third World?
    • 50 year low unemployment rate.
    • Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 500 continue break records.
    • Wages are up.
    Take your partisan political blinders off.

    Violent rhetoric is violent rhetoric.

    Stop making excuses for your divisive half-white President.

    The left has done nothing to try and unite this country since Trump was elected. In fact, they have actively done everything in their power to divide this nation.

    Dont come in here acting like a ****ing victim.

    Yet another reminder that "progressives" don't give a flying **** about unity. The only time they want unity is when they're in power and they want their opponents to roll over for them.

    Ah, but it's an opportunity for Democrats to pretend they're doing something to solve gun violence without having to address the root causes, which happen to include some of the disastrous consequences of their social welfare policies and programs.

    To use a medical analogy, Dems are treating the symptoms but ignoring the disease.
