The 2nd Ammendment depends on Trump

Trump will appoint conservative judges. Hillary would appoint activist judges hostile to our constitutional rights especially the 2nd Ammendment.
It really does come down to this: if you want to keep your guns, you'd better turn out and vote for Trump. It doesn't matter how you feel about him personally, or if he called someone a naughty name, or threatened to send your illegal second cousin back to Guatemala. The Hildabitch WILL eliminate your right to bear arms.
Vote for Trump in November or cry later.

Sorry but Mao got it wrong. Now all power grows from the tracking system of a hellfire missile launched from a drone.

If that was true then al Quaida, the Taliban, and ISIL would have been eradicated years ago. Infantry is the only way to truly conquer.
And Infantry has always depended on guns.

Sure, right. The rights of America depend on concealed carry. All the gun nuts are going to stand up to the military and defend our rights with concealed pistols. Idiot.

The facts are that the gun lobby and the second amendment "defenders" are the biggest supporters of stripping people of their civil rights in the name of law and order/national security. Don't let facts confuse you.

Yeah, Vietnam, Iraqi Insurgency, Afghanistan, NW Frontier Province of Afghanistan, ISIS etc. etc.

Drone Strikes are good at killing entire families because the suspect loaned his SIM card with extra minutes to his cousin, who went to HIS cousin's wedding. That's the problem with SIGINT and ELINT.

ISIS is greatly weakened by Sukhoi strikes directly on the oil, something the US did once in a year of bombing, predicated by tons of leaflets in advance warning the bad guys.

But ejecting ISIS from control has been the job of the Syrian Army and Hezbollah, ground forces backed by Russian CAS.

You naive fool. George Orwell made it very clear that a world power will ALWAYS need an eternal war to stay in power. There is absolutely no political will to eradicate anyone in the Middle East.

Enlighten me. It is easier to buy, own, and carry a gun than any time in the last 100 years. Yet the big bad boogeyman "obama is going to take away your guns" is the only thing most gun owners believe in.

I was actually an NRA member back when (early 70's) the NRA represented gun owners instead of gun manufacturers. Did you know the NRA lobbied for gun control laws starting in the 1920's. Did you know the NRA actually supported and helped set up the Gun Control Act of 1968 which licensed gun dealers and put restrictions on classes of firearms. That the NRA of gun owners, like me at the time, believed in people showing they were responsible people deserving to be gun owners before being able to buy a gun? Apparently not.

The NRA since the takeover of haron carter, a vigilante shooter like zimmernan who changed his name to hide it, has been nothing but a lobbying arm of the gun manufacturers and dealers who lobby bitterly against any law that will restrict unlimited gun advertising or sales. In order to do that they have created an entire new meaning for the second amendment. Its' sad how many people like you are dupes honestly believing the very carefully planned propaganda campaign about the second amendment put out by for the gun industry to make huge profits at the expense of the entire society.

The NRA’s fabricated view of the Second Amendment was ridiculed by former U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger—a very conservative judge appointed by President Richard Nixon—in a PBS Newshour interview in 1991, where he called it “one of the greatest pieces of fraud—I repeat the word ‘fraud’—on the American public by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime.”

I have no problem with gun ownership. I used to be a fair target shooter and hunter but lost interest. I have no problem with people being licensed to be owners. I really have no problem with having all guns tracked, so that it's much more difficult running guns state to state for the criminals. If should be that if you sell your gun, you are responsible for getting real ID and reporting who it went to, even as a private citizen. But that kind of law would cut into gun industry profits and results in NRA hysteria.

So comrade quigley, keep up the propaganda fight, you are making some people very happy and very rich with your unpaid devotion to their cause.

Even Muslims should support Trump if they aren't jihadis, as Trump will make America safe for peaceful Muslims who abhor the violent dictates of radical Islam. After all, if you are a Muslim who wishes to join in with American society, you don't want your crazy Townies from bumfuckistan coming here and stirring up the locals against you with asshole shootings and bombings in Allah's name!

1) Iraq was one of the most heavily armed Nations per capita in the world, and that prevented neither tyranny under Saddam nor the US invasion and subsequent occupation.
2) We later gathered their guns and outlawed the buying and selling of guns in Iraq, because the gangs, thugs and ne'er-do-wells were killing citizens, and posed a danger to coalition troops. It would seem as though we didn't believe that more guns would make citizens, law enforcement or the military safer.

You also have the exact opposite as examples, heavily armed nations or states where there is no gun "problem". You can have a perfectly "safe" country where citizens are all disarmed but the government can reign in terror with its armed forces, plenty of examples of that too. I think looking at guns for the overall safety of a nation is not useful, they were not meant to keep a nation safe or safer, but to give weaker and poorer individuals the right of self-defense and - per constitution - to protect against the tyranny of government. I would say that a nation armed to the teeth is as imbalanced as a nation without guns (knifes make excellent arms too), of course one can question whether the US has already too many guns - but I don't think though that this will address the root of the issues, it would be more like addressing the symptoms (which sometimes can be necessary as well).

Why bother? The NRA/gun manufacturers brainwashing propaganda is to pervasive that pretty much every gun owner today believes the second amendment means unlimited gun ownership and manufacturing with no restrictions of any kind. Pandora's box has been opened and the law of unintended consequences is in full swing. The cycle of violence is only going to grow and grow.

Knives cannot kill 50 people in an outing since you need to be so close. It would seem as though technology has allowed any disgruntled or religiously conflicted latent homosexual to go on a pogrom, and be more successful than ever before in history.

Then there is the harm it will do to Trump’s reputation of supposedly being immune to lobbying and special interest. But did he have any choice, truly? No one in Congress wants to talk with him or even acknowledge him so he had to plead to the real lawmakers for the GOP. If he can somehow get this concession from the industry lobby will he get cooperation from the Democrats on immigration change? Trump’s tactics are becoming more and more short term as he runs around putting out fires. What will be the reaction of the Congressmen who took the NRA’s 4 million bucks?

You think Vietnam was lost because we were defeated on the battlefield? 58K deaths to over 440K? We "lost" because the resolve game was lost, especially on the home front. The NVA/VC didn't win because they had AKs.

Too bad you didn't actually read the article. The battle of the Ia Drang was a decisive american victory. Over twice as many nva troops as american troops resulted in the nva being driven back into cambodia with anywhere from 5 to 10 times the casualties. Hal Moore's battalion held off 2 full regiments at lz x-ray for 2 days. Americans were shocked at the number of casualties, but this was the first large scale engagement of the war. For the size of the battle the casualties were not large at all. The reporters were clueless about the scale of the fight or the results. They only knew there were a lot of casualties and reported it as a disaster.

What the Ia Drang valley did was to change nva tactics to large scale close in fighting where air strikes and heavy artillary were much less effective.

America never had a strategy in Vietnam or Iraq and the results were totally predictable. I wrote an op/ed in USA today jan 2003 months before invading Iraq detailing exactly what the problems were and what the results would be. Giap got it correct “We thought that the Americans must have a strategy. We did. We had a strategy of people’s war. You had tactics, and it takes very decisive tactics to win a strategic victory….If we could defeat your tactics—your helicopters—then we could defeat your strategy. Our goal was to win the war.” No one to this day knows what America's strategy in Vietnam or Iraq was.

Are you suggesting that a bunch of yahoos with hand guns and semi auto assault rifles across the US will be able to engage in large scale close in jungle fighting against the US military and defeat them at some point? Hahahaha.
