President Trump: We Won’t Sacrifice Gun Rights to ‘Slippery Slope’

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

President Trump suggested Democrats have given up any defense of the Second Amendment and pledged that he will not allow Americans’ gun rights to be swept away on the “slippery slope” of gun control.

Trump made the comments while speaking to reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday.

He said, “We have very, very strong background checks right now. But we have, sort of, missing areas and areas that don’t complete the whole circle. And we’re looking at different things.”

He added, “And I have to tell you that it is a mental problem. And I’ve said it a hundred times: It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger; it’s the person that pulls the trigger. These are sick people, and it is also that kind of a problem.”

Trump was then asked point blank if he wanted to see Senate passage of gun control bills passed in the Democrat-controlled House. He responded:

Well, I’m not going to get into that.  But we are in very meaningful discussions with the Democrats.  And I think the Republicans are very unified.  We are very strong on our Second Amendment.  The Democrats are not strong at all on the Second Amendment.  I would say they’re weak on the Second Amendment, and we have to be careful of that.

He observed:

The Democrats would, I believe — I think they’d give up the Second Amendment.  And the people that — a lot of the people that put me where I am are strong believers in the Second Amendment — and I am, also.  And we have to be very careful about that.  You know, they call it the “slippery slope,” and all of the sudden, everything gets taken away.  We’re not going to let that happen.

Breitbart News reported that Trump used weekend comments to shift away from background checks.

Politico reported that Trump was asked about the background check gun control push and he said, “I’m not saying anything. I’m saying Congress is going to be reporting back to me with ideas. And they’ll come in from Democrats and Republicans. And I’ll look at it very strongly. But just remember, we already have a lot of background checks.”

    how’s this for an idea: A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.

    Hey, jerk, so you want to be a nice guy about taking our guns by piece mealing this thing, huh? An infringement here an infringement there, then poof, everythings taken away!

    Frankly, you’re an IDIOT! And those of us out here that know what you are hate your ugly guts. You don’t fool us with your smooth bs talk, used car salesman methods. Come to think of it, I wonder if you reek of cheap cologne. You just have that look about you like you would try n cover the stink oozing from your pores.

    “…..But we have, sort of, missing areas and areas that don’t complete the whole circle. And we’re looking at different things.”…..”

    What did I tell you yesterday? The “different things” he’s looking at are red flag laws. (gun confiscations). He’s playing the gun owners by insisting he supports gun rights, and he’ll shift the rhetoric toward mental health. He’ll “complete the whole circle” by insisting that guns be taken from dangerous people before they go berserk.

    Once the “sensible” red flag laws are in place, anyone who disagrees with anything the government says or does will be labelled as “dangerous”.

    It’s impossible to confiscate all guns, so guns will be confiscated from anyone who might actually use them, and the constant data collection program will identify who those people are.

    Unequivocally UNCHALLEGED!

    It’s one shared by ALL politicians… it involves MASSIVE TREASON, and the only way it can ever be cured is with a short drop and a sudden stop.

    • mary in tx says:

      “He added, “And I have to tell you that it is a mental problem.”

      and whose definition of a mental problem will be applied? hmmm?

      • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

        Ours, when it comes to their psychopathic ways.

        But even that is immaterial in light of the fact that every single one can EASILY be convicted of treason.

        Which I would prefer over locking them up in an asylum… hanging is far more permanent. 🙂

    He was installed to pacify the conservatives in America and to lull them to sleep….. meanwhile he still allows thousands of subhuman savages from disease ridden countries to enter the US through the UN refugee resettlement plan to “seed” America with non European people to further destroy the country and send 85 Billion+ to Izrahell …. Did anyone notice that he said that he wants millions of illegals to come here the “right way” to further lower wages and the standard of living here!

    “He added, “And I have to tell you that it is a mental problem. And I’ve said it a hundred times: It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger; it’s the person that pulls the trigger. These are sick people, and it is also that kind of a problem.”

    Think good and hard about what this means. Mark my words, there will be more gun control ideas from both sides of the aisle, he even expresses how he wants to work with the Democrats, and this POS is only trying to make himself look credible as if he truly acknowledges it as a right rather than a privilege that Gov agencies will award to who they see as “mentally fit”. Hmm, maybe all those “conspiracy theorists with crazy ideas about rights and negative views on things like israel” are the mentally NOT fit?

  10. Enemy of the State says:

    And what if no one complied ..and stood their ground and their rights ?
    what than ?

    we know “the what if”..

    but how man lives of your own are you willing to sacrifice for a right we refuse to give up?

    we’re not going to lose , you idiots , and theres no way yer getting them all

    light this sucker off and prove me wrong

    after a few thousand have their rights violated and property stolen , it wont get easier ..it’ll get harder and more dangerous each and every time to go out to be a tyrant and violate another persons rights ..doubt they will be sleeping at 3 am for your surprised visit ..surprise will be yours
