So the all powerful US government, that can impose sanctions anywhere in the world at the drop of a hat, has to ask the NRA if it will accept new gun legislation? 

Well looks like trump does anyway

Since then, however, Trump has shifted his approach, calling the shooters mentally ill and saying the administration had to look at building more mental institutions.

More duplicity and dishonesty.

In 2017 the Republican-controlled House and Senate passed H.J. Res. 40 which revoked the Obama-era regulation that would have made it harder for people with mental illness to buy guns. In view of the recent El Paso shooting, the bill was sponsored by Texas Republican Rep. Sam Johnson (now retired).

some believe the 2nd amendment was designed as a "hope it is never needed safety valve" should at some time a tyrannical government re-develop.

Well, first of all meaningful discussions with the opposing party, is what true leaders engage in. So, kudos to him if he is sincere about that. However, I remain skeptical, since he is bought and paid for by the NRA. Deeper background checks are the first place to start, and all parties should agree on that. To hell with the NRA. They obviously put the safety of the American people last, in their list of priorities. 

 

Secondarily, the second amendment applied when the nation needed militias. Does it apply today? I do not think so. Sure, nothing wrong with allowing someone to own one or two guns for hunting and protection. But, there are alot of insane white men in America, who own 17 guns or more. Of all the people in the US, it is the white male that scares me the most, and I say that as a white American man. There are alot of white nutters in America. They need to be kept on a leash.

24% is very significant

"People are saying..."

"Everyone is saying..."

"I'm hearing..."

My faves are the outright lies, eg he told the Pakistani PM that Modi asked him (DT) to be the intermediary on Kashmir - which was an outright lie.  He probably has no idea of the tinder box it is, nor the slaughtering that went on at partition, which still wears on the people today.

 

What I think really shows how warped he is are things like this:

during one of his hate rallies he pulls a paper out oh his pocket and says "I just got this letter from Kim Jong Il and he says <name of presidential candidate> is a low IQ person."

"Low IQ person" is a common defamation with him, but I would put his own IQ in the 105 range (I'm being generous today).  Would Kim even know what "IQ" is?  And anyway, who is supposed to be impressed by Kim's opinion?  The whole thing sounds like something a low IQ person would say 🙂
