Trump tells crowd Clinton wants to 'abolish' Second Amendment

Source: The Hill

Donald Trump threw a new claim Hillary Clinton's way at a Saturday rally, telling the crowd that she wants to do away with the Second Amendment.

"Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to abolish it," Trump said at a Saturday rally in Lynden, Wash.

"Hillary Clinton wants to take your guns away and she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to take the bullets away."
"We're going to cherish the Second Amendment, we're going to take care of the Second Amendment."

Clinton is in favor of universal background checks, closing loopholes on gun purchases and increasing restrictions on domestic abusers and the mentally ill. And she wants to repeal the law that prevents victims of gun violence from suing retailers or manufacturers, among other measures.

20. Matthew was a Jew though.

 

And its pretty well documented that owning a gun is several times more dangerous to the owner than not having one.
Wikipedia:

Most scholars believe the Gospel of Matthew was composed between 80 and 90 AD, with a range of possibility between 70 to 110 AD (a pre-70 date remains a minority view).[2][3] The anonymous author was probably a male Jew, standing on the margin between traditional and non-traditional Jewish values, and familiar with technical legal aspects of scripture being debated in his time.[4] Writing in a polished Semitic "synagogue Greek",[5] he drew on three main sources, the Gospel of Mark, the hypothetical collection of sayings known as the Q source, and material unique to his own community, called "Special Matthew", or the M source.[6]

The Gospel of Matthew is a creative reinterpretation of Mark,[7] stressing Jesus' teachings as much as his acts,[8] and making subtle changes to reveal his divine nature – Mark's "young man" who appears at Jesus' tomb, for example, becomes a radiant angel in Matthew.[9] The divine nature of Jesus was a major issue for the community of Matthew, the crucial element marking them from their Jewish neighbors;[10] the Gospel of Mark recounts prior revelations in Jesus' lifetime on earth, at his baptism and transfiguration, but Matthew goes back further still, showing Jesus as the Son of God from his birth, the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy.

23. The Gospel according to Matthew is a foundational Christian text

 

Generally speaking it is more associated with Christianity than Judaism, as Jews do not believe that Jesus was the son of God, nor do they believe that he fulfills any Old Testament prophecy.

31. It was a reflection of the powerlessness of that early sect of Judaism

...which later morphed into Christianity once Jesus was deified a couple of centuries later. Once Christians became the dominate power structure they forgot about pretty much everything Jesus commanded them to do.

up to 45 times more likely to injure or kill a family member than to be actually used in legitimate self-defense from intruders. Domestic dispute, suicide, accidents much more likely than family self-defense.
Cars are 100000 times more likely to be used in family transportation than to be in fatal accident.

56. Interesting the things you have "heard".

Especially since no state, local or federal law enforcement body records such a statistic. I have defended my household against a home invader one time with the use of a gun. I did not call the police afterwards because I was sure the situation would not be repeated by the individual and I had no use for the police at that time.

I have had guns since my father gave me one at 6 years old and that was sixty years ago. In that time none of my guns have ever been used in domestic disputes, suicide, or accidents. That is the experience with most of the scores of millions of Americans who own guns. I don't bother with statistics (love the "100,000" nice round number internet statistic) because in the gun debate everyone throws their own set of statistics into the mix and no one cares.

57. I believe it was the CDC that came up with those numbers

 

in the 1990's. The NRA was so shocked they immediately sent their powerful lobbyists to outlaw anymore CDC research on gun stats. Or they had the CDC gun research $ so deeply cut that no CDC research has been done on it since. Its like the Kremlin KGB came down on the CDC so hard it had a deeply chilling effect on the CDC even mentioning guns. Nobody there would touch gun research with a 10 foot pole.

Point is guns main purpose is self-defense like cars is transportaion. But guns actually have the opposite effect of their intended purpose.

Not factually true. From the actual law as passed:

“None of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control.”

Gunfight or Flee: New Study Finds No Advantages to Using a Firearm in Self-Defense Situations
The research provides the latest evidence debunking the myth of defensive gun use.

62. "The study, led by David Hemenway..."

 

I need read no more. Hemenway is about as unbiased and un-ideological, as DU or FR.

Meanwhile, this uses actual real life unbiased statistics from the FBI, and reports 338,700 defensive uses over 5 years:

http://www.vpc.org/studies/justifiable.pdf

That's just shy of 70 thousand a year, which is roughly double the number of total gun deaths, and roughly 7 times the number of murders by gun, annually.

63. Less than 1% of attempted or completed crimes.

 

From the article:

In his new NCVS study, Hemenway also found that defensive gun use is exceedingly infrequent. While smaller private surveys estimated that there are up to 2.5 million DGUs on an annual basis, the NCVS data indicates that victims used guns defensively in less than 1 percent of attempted or completed crimes, with an annual total of less than 70,000.

By using the NCVS data, Hemenway’s analysis has several key advantages over other study examining DGUs. Even the best-designed surveys fail to produce reliable estimates for defensive gun use because they inadvertently capture a large number of false positives, producing final estimates that don’t comport with reality. The most famous one-off study on this subject, conducted by criminologists Gary Kleck and Mark Gertz in 1992, estimated that guns are used 2.5 million times a year in self-defense. But as we’ve written before, we now know that number to be mathematically impossible in light of reliable empirical data like hospital records, victimization surveys, gun violence archives, and police records.

None? That's what I thought.

In other words, you were just talking shit, otherwise known as going into "say something, even if its wrong" mode, weren't you?

Interesting. My list is a little longer than that, but then, its longer on the defensive use side as well. I myself have had multiple DGUs here on the farm, that I'm quite sure nobody counted, though they weren't necessarily "defense of self". In addition, I know, personally, several individuals who have had defensive gun uses.

Absence of evidence does not equal evidence of absence, regardless of who is or isn't keeping count.

Hemenway has a lot less to profit than the NRA/gun industry does which like the Koch's oil empire has hundreds of billions to lose.


Hemenway is a rabid anti-gun ideologue, so profit doesn't even enter into it.

42. Given the last amendment that was over turned was Prohibition.....

...no chance in hell it could be overturned. Add to that it's the second amendment, part of the founding fathers...and then lets throw in the only part of the original Constitution that allowed slaves...which took a war to essentially overturn...

Don't see it being abolished any time soon. And if fact, at best, be regulated into a "semi-ban"...where the owners are allowed to store and use their guns at "appropriate" venues.

But given that, Trump (and Tea Party) supporters don't have enough "functionality" to figure that out. And think whoever the next President is going to "take away their guns"...because a local politician said so...despite the obvious hurdles...

well, what can I say.

44. While I find this ironically funny since there have been calls for this on DU

I don't think Madame President Presumptive is interested in funding such a fight.

45. I think his ability to lie through laughs is going to make this a closer election...

than the polls are showing.
The likes of this ilk have never entered the arena of President of the U.S.
Whoever wins the Dem side had better be ready.
I find the freak frightening—not funny.

48. Something to remember is that the media will turn against him, and he will be facing a pro

 

at the same time, a pro with a billion dollars at her disposal and the never yet released DNC opposition research on Donald J. Trump's almost gangster life.

Trump is getting ready to meet a machine that he has never seen before, and which his lounge lizard Mussolini act, and 70 year sleazy life, will not hold up to well.

54. Not a Hillary fan

 

But the idea that she wants to abolish the Second Amendment is simply ridiculous. And even if she DID want to do away with the Second Amendment, it isn't like she can pull out her magic president wand and wish it away. She'd have to get Congress on board (not going to happen) as well as 38 states (REALLY not going to happen). But Trump supporters will believe that she's going to send in the black helicopters with UN troops to seize your firearms because, well, they aren't particularly bright. And yes, I'm a supporter of the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms.
