Before ‘the resistance’ DEMS went ballistic over anyone referencing the Second Amendment as a remedy for government overreach.
But that was then…
Back in 2016, when it was Trump vs. Hillary, Trump’s off-the-cuff-statement sent Hillary into orbit. Do you remember?
“Words matter, my friends, and if you are running to be president or if you are president of the United States, words can have tremendous consequences,” she said at a rally in Iowa on Wednesday afternoon. “Yesterday, we witnessed the latest in a long line of casual comments from Donald Trump that crossed the line.”
Trump on Tuesday touched off another scandal when he suggested gun rights advocates could be the last hope in an effort to stop Clinton from abolishing the Second Amendment through Supreme Court picks. The backlash was swift, with Democrats calling the statement beyond the pale, the Secret Service reporting that it was aware of the remark, and Republicans trying to dismiss the comment as a bad joke.
Ours is a nation of liberty with the last line of defense for that liberty resting on the shoulders of citizens themselves. If anyone — even the judges started stripping legitimate rights — an armed population is not, ultimately, ‘helpless’.
As that shirt says: 4 boxes of liberty, in this order: soap box, ballot box, jury box, ammo box.
IN THAT ORDER.
As in, “extreme measures”, “failing all other options”. And those comments were in the context of legislation to take away the right to bear arms.
Most of us understood that to be the meaning of Trump’s ‘controversial’ statement back in 2016. The flunkies on the left portrayed it as a threat against their Dear Leader’s life. It was not.
Flash forward to 2018. Right smack dab in a controversy about the role of guns in society, and whether specific instances of violence can or should make us rethink the role of the Second Amendment in society.
(In case we hadn’t yet made it clear enough, our very firm editorial position on that question is a resounding NO, it should NOT make us rethink it.)
Rep. Tom Suozzi made the remark to constituents at a town hall last week, saying that folks opposed to Trump might resort to the “Second Amendment.”
“It’s really a matter of putting public pressure on the president,” Suozzi said in a newly released video of the March 12 talk in Huntington. “This is where the Second Amendment comes in, quite frankly, because you know, what if the president was to ignore the courts? What would you do? What would we do?”
A listener then blurts out, “What’s the Second Amendment?”
The left-leaning Democrat says, “The Second Amendment is the right to bear arms.”
The spectators laughed — some nervously. Republicans were not amused.
Is he truly anticipating that Trump — who has given BACK powers that were Unconstitutionally taken up into the Executive Branch by that guy with ‘a pen and a phone’ are being returned to Congress is a threat to the Constitution? Who DIDN’T make a ruling on DACA specifically because it would be unconstitutional for him to do so?
Are we talking about the same POTUS who has been BLOCKED from Day One at every turn from exercising his legitimate powers as head of the Executive branch, including rulings on immigration?
Seriously? A Democrat, DARED to make that kind of a flippant comment? Where was he when the IRS weaponized against political rivals, when his goverment spied on journalists, when his government had their knuckles rapped for ‘flagrant misconduct by prosecutors and the FBI’ in the Cliven Bundy case? Where was HE on that series of blunders , conflicts-of-interest, unlawful leaks, violations of civil rights, and obvious scheming by one branch of the government against a Candidate for President that sullied the good name of many rank-and-file employees of the DOJ and the FBI? This Dem dares to suggest that Republicans are the threat to the Constitution?
Maybe it was those Constructionist judges we insist on appointing?
Sarah Palin said that certain districts needed to be ‘targeted’ in an election and the supposed reporters of the day called that a threat of violence.
But now, we’re supposed to think, less than a year after Scalese was one of several Republicans shot at for explicitly political reasons, that talk specifically equating the Second Amendment with our Current President for phantom violations of the Constitution is somehow normal and acceptable? You named names.
We’re not buying the crap you’re slinging.
As a Congressman, you ought to know better.
And if this is the kind of judgment that was elected to serve in office, maybe you might look for a career better suited to that judgment. Maybe running the Tilt-a-Whirl at the local fair.

There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
Ladies, get yours here.
