…and the Anti-Gun community proves the Pro-Gun point once again

So tonight a sound bite is going around again claiming that Donald Trump is calling for Hillary’s assassination. He did not say anything at all along those lines!

Effectively Trump said, if you are anti-gun and believe being gun-free is the path to peace, then start with yourself. People who are pro-gun have also said this same thing many times. Basically, Mrs. Clinton, please put your money where your mouth is. Remove the guns from yourself (No idea if she’s armed or not, just covering all the bases.) and from your security team and show us that you are willing to start the process.

No one is saying she can’t have a tactical vest for protection, no one is saying her security can’t have vests. Heck no one is saying they can’t have Tasers, Billy clubs, or even baseball bats. All Trump and the rest of the Pro-gun community have asked time and time again is for Hillary to live by the principals she professes are the future America needs to fight and reduce gun violence.

That’s it. That’s all that was said/inferred/meant/ yadda yadda yadda…. If you are anti-gun you will only ever be seen as a hypocrite if you are simultaneously using guns for protection. Even worse, you are proving yourself to be a coward.

Here’s the real truth. Hillary Clinton knows she’s safer with armed security. She knows that the “Common sense gun law” debate is a joke and waste of time. She also knows that it’s polarizing and is good for making each side more divided. What Hillary (and Obama) has yet to realize is: Guns are not a Republican vs. Democrat issue. There are a lot of Democrat’s who are hunters, gun collectors, or competition sport shooters. It’s a losing topic, but it’s a great distraction!

You don’t have to take my word for it, do your own research. Yes, I could share a million links on the subject, but someone would claim they were biased or from ‘untrustworthy sources’, or some other reason. However, I will make a recommendation on where to start. Chicago (Obama’s favorite city) has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. Look at gun violence numbers there, then compare them to a state with less strict gun laws. Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, and Alaska are a few I can think of off the top of my head. California has strict gun laws as well and may be, size wise, more comparable to Texas.

As for what Trump said, seriously, calm down. He in no way suggested assassination! The Democrats assuming that Trumps remark suggesting that Hillary disarm to prove her point means she will be assassinated, just proves that the Pro-gun people are correct in stating that no law stop criminals, but a fear of being shot does!
