Trump is Scoring Points

The Second Amendment 
(WaPo) President-Elect Donald Trump -- who said he has a concealed carry permit -- called for the expansion of gun rights Friday, including making those permits applicable nationwide. 
In a position paper published on his website Friday afternoon, Trump called for the elimination of gun and magazine bans, labeling them a "total failure." 
"Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own," Trump wrote...
"Opponents of gun rights try to come up with scary sounding phrases like 'assault weapons', 'military-style weapons' and 'high capacity magazines' to confuse people," Trump wrote Friday. "What they’re really talking about are popular semi-automatic rifles and standard magazines that are owned by tens of millions of Americans." 
Trump said in the paper he has a concealed carry permit. The permits, which are issued by states, should be valid nationwide like a driver's license, Trump said. 
"If we can do that for driving -- which is a privilege, not a right -- then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege," Trump said.
Naturally, the Washington Post is appalled that a president or a president-elect in this case, would call for the proper implementation of the Constitution. It speaks volumes for the sort of jurist(s) that he will appoint to the US Supreme Court. 

The Washington Post and other leftist rags have called the slogan, "Make America Great Again", 'hate speech'. They suggest that it's misogynistic, racist, likely homophobic and Islamophobic. Clearly, America has a different approach to the issue than they do -- and it drives them mad.

  2. Interesting how various groups, national leaders, and reporters are demanding Trump "reach out to them". All I can say is, "Are you s^^ting me?" Why should he?

    1. They can sh*t me, too. I don't think they have any right to demand anything.

    2. Demands -- it's too late to apologize, but a polite suggestion is always more appropriate. The problem that progs had with the Reagan presidency is that an improved economy and safer nation changed the political landscape. The leadership understands this. Nationalism combined with lower taxes and more reasonable regulation makes America very strong - and that bothers the internationalists.

    3. Reaching out to the Left has got us where we are today.
      Squash 'em instead.

  3. +1 WSF. And good luck with with getting away with all the gun bans and controls in the US. I am just guardedly excited about him actually taking over in January.

  5. OK, Trump just elevated himself in my eyes. I'd known that he had received a NRA endorsement, but he's walking the walk if he has a CCW permit.

    1. He carries a Kimber .45 around with him in NYC. Has from years from what I've heard. That replaced kidnap insurance.

  6. infringe: act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on.

    Our Rights have been limited, undermined and encroached on...by Presidents, Congress and the Supreme Court.

    1. President Trump would seem to be the exception and doesn't want to see that infringement. What a concept!
