(Liberty Bell) – If you ask most Trump supporters, one of the most important issues on the line in 2016, when Donald Trump was running against Hillary Clinton, was the Second Amendment.
There was no doubt that Hillary Clinton, one of the most prominent Democrats of the last three decades and staunch supporter of radical gun control, would allow for perhaps irreversible restrictions on our Second Amendment rights.
It was chilling to think of a nation where she was president, especially considering the foundation on which Obama laid for her to build on.
Now that it’s 2020, gun control will once again be one of the defining issues of the campaign and once again, President Trump wants to make sure that Americans know we can expect him to preserve our rights.
This is an incredibly important issue because it is one of the cornerstones of our republic.
Without an armed populace, the state would be in complete and total power.
This is exactly what today’s radical leftist party wants, of course, so they can enshrine into statist law their progressive, restrictive policies aimed at taking rights away from individuals and families and giving the state full power to hand out rights to whomever the wish, and, far more likely, restricting them from anyone they deemed an enemy.
In the vacuum left by Clinton’s defeat, far more radical leftists have moved in, promoting large-scale gun confiscations and so-called “assault weapons” bans which would more likely spark civil war than actually succeed at disarming Americans.
Which is again, exactly why we have the right to bear arms. So that we can stand up and fight should the government attempt to take ours.
So they’re chipping away with restrictions, Orwellian red flag laws, gun rationing, and other such unconstitutional measures to erode our rights slow enough to escape widespread notice, but fast enough that our rights could be gone before we think twice.
Speaking to another lively and well-attended rally in Manchester, New Hampshire on Monday, Trump promised he would defend “the right to keep and arms.”
He listed this among several other natural rights which must be protected.
“We will defend privacy, free speech, religious liberty, and the right to keep and bear arms,” he declared.
Trump added, “We’re going to protect your Second Amendment.”
He spoke to the Democrats eagerness to take away our God-given rights.
Trump said, “They are going to take away everything. They are going to take away your wealth, they are going to take away your guns, they are going to take away everything.”
He added, “We live by the words of our national motto, ‘In God We Trust.’”
The president then voted to the motto of this key primary state, “Live Free or Die,” saying, “I love that motto.”
Last week, POTUS also pledged to protect the Second Amendment, saying in his speech that, “So long as I am president, I will always protect your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.”
