NRA PUTS $3 MILLION INTO ADS FOR TRUMP RIGHT AFTER HIS “SECOND AMENDMENT” COMMENT.
Because obviously nothing is more important than guns. Certainly not people. Especially if they disagree with you.

Not that anyone is actually talking about changing the blasted (pun intended) 2nd Amendment, but I heard a great comeback to people who say, “You can’t change the 2nd Amendment!”
Get ready…”Well, apparently you don’t understand the definition of the word ‘amendment.’ Perhaps you need a thesaurus. Don’t know what that is either? Okay. Here’s a dictionary.”
Hey, Elyse, nothing prohibits me from arming myself with witty comebacks, right? That’s covered in the 1st Amendment and 1st beats 2nd every time…but maybe not this time. I’m scratching more than my head these days.

There’s a reason the first amendment comes before the second!
there is nothing worse than a gun in the hands of an idiot with a cause…
Trump claims he was referring to the right to vote against Hillary. I don’t get it. Does he even know what the second amendment is?
Probably not. He really should borrow Mr. Khan’s copy!
I was driving down he road, listening to NPR, when I heard Trump’s 2nd Amendment-Hillary-Fix. The broadcast was live, without the benefit of seeing his face or the crowd, or hearing pundits dissect it. An at the very second he said it, I grabbed the steering wheel, gasping, “No….no…no one in that position should suggest the competition should be shot.” Later I heard his camp try to explain it away, but I have no doubt about the callous, insidious, evil he was suggesting. I didn’t misinterpret what I heard. I disagree with Scott, I don’t think this is the election cycle that should be named, “Let’s pretend this never happened.” I for one will be working toward…”An inexperienced, unqualified candidate not be presented to the American voters in the future”
As my dad would have said, I wonder what this apologists are smoking because it was as clear to me as it was to you. That was a call for assassination. Just like Netanyahoo did with Rabin in Israel. Horrible, horrible fascist bastard has done a huge amount of damage already.
If this election cycle had a name it would be “Let’s pretend this never happened.”
That’ll be how it’s written in the history books!
There’s no other way to describe it.
How are you doing?
Hanging in there. By a thread. How’s you?
I’m ok. Very little interest in the sphere, though. It’s nice to see you though!
I haven’t been around either.
Elyse, Elyse, Elyse!! I am a quivering ball of rage and incredulity over here in Europe. Do something!! ;-). Yeah. The effing guns. The way these people bestow anthropomorphic characteristics on their weapons is, quite frankly, mind-boggling. They love their guns more than their kids (otherwise you’d have ’em locked up, wouldn’t you?). They love their guns more than their spouses (who are 5x more likely to be killed with them). They love them more than thy neighbour (who they’re likely to shoot in an altercation over the backyard fence). They love their guns more than country, family, home. I am all in favour of strict gun regulations, but not abolishment of the 2A. But….sometimes when I read the practically pornographic way people talk about their GUNS….and it makes me want to confiscate every gun from the AK47 to the hot glue and watch them burn.
I know! It must be incredibly difficult trying to explain Trump to Europeans. I thought I had it bad explaining Dubya (and Monica).
Personally, I’d love to rewrite the 2nd Amendment. So that it is clear that it doesn’t allow nutcases to own and use uzis …
I keep saying, I’ve been ‘Murica spraining for 8 years now. I’m tired.
I hear ya!
Yikes! You’re having fun with those comment inserts I can see. ha! Too funny.
I will always be indebted to you, Paul! But I didn’t even notice Barb’s because I answered her question in a bubble!
You can say that again. And you probably will. Along with me and most of the world!
I read something today that made an interesting point. This whole “the Dems want your guns! the Dems want to do away with the 2nd amendment” narrative is based on the fact that the Dems want to reverse Heller — a misbegotten Supreme Court decision if there ever was one. But the interesting thing is that reversing Heller doesn’t mean the 2nd Amendment is repealed or that your have to give up your guns. All it means is that we go back to the state of the law that existed before Heller — for more than 230+ years.
Seriously, I’ve read Heller so many times and it is stunning how wrong the majority decision is. Kind of like Citizens United. Both decisions are shining examples of conservative judicial activism run amuck. They are the conservative versions of Roe v. Wade. (And just to be clear, while I am pro-choice, I can acknowledge that Roe isn’t exactly a rock solid example of jurisprudence.)
Scalia, I think, wrote both opinions. What a terrible justice he was.
I’d certainly be willing to go back to the previous law. It would be interesting to look at the gun violence statistics, wouldn’t it. Of course, I’d be willing to do anything that might help stop random killing, accidental shootings and the craziness that comes to people who think they are invincible because they have a f’ing gun.
Yes, Scalia wrote both and they make a mockery of his claims of judicial restraint, judicial conservatism, and original intent. He ignored any history that was inconvenient for the agenda driven decisions he wanted to write.
Whatever suited him … What a toad.
Of course the NRA is going to donate a lot on money to the Trump campaign … that was very predictable. Then again, Obama was also in the process of stripping the Second Amendment by doing nothing against it.
Not quite sure what you meant by the second sentence …
The past 8 years of crying that he (President Obama) is stripping the Second Amendment, but he didn’t do anything … therefore, it’s just a partisan battle cry.
Oh. Yes. It didn’t register when I read your comment!
Gotta keep you on your toes.
I just can’t “like” this one, Elyse. But I sure do agree with you.

Yeah, I know what you mean!
Next thing you know, he’ll be proposing a return to slavery.
Only for blacks. And women. Hispanics and muslims he deports.
What a horrible creature this man is.
It’s getting pretty scary, with some of the things he’s saying. But the scariest part for me is that there are still quite a few GOP leaders who officially support him.
Yes! The party leaders
And as always, I think he can’t say anything worse than he already has. And then he does. Sigh.
It’s true! What sort of a person acts like he does.
I read that the American Society for Psychotherapists has put out word saying that nobody is supposed to psychoanalyze Trump. Hell it’s a national sport!
Hope you’re well, I miss you!
I am. Thanks. Hope you are too. 🙂
I’m constantly amazed at how his supporters can try to justify everything he says. He could personally murder Hillary Clinton and Paul Ryan still wouldn’t withdraw his endorsement.
Remember the absent husband without a spine on SNL years ago? That’s my impression of Ryan. Totally spineless. In fact, I should write to SNL…
There will be violence by one or more of Trump’s supporters, i predict (along with many other folks). And then, like when Rabin was assassinated by Netanyaho’s follower, Trump will plead innocence when he might as well have the weapon in his hand.
There just isn’t any way to hit “like” on this. WordPress needs a button that says “I just threw up in my mouth a little bit”
How about this:

I replied to your comment in the bubbles, so I didn’t see the hilarious GIF. Well done, Barb!
