DONALD TRUMP’S CONTINUED EMBRACE OF INSURRECTIONISM IS DEPLORABLE

Once Again, GOP Candidate Hints at Violence Against his Democratic Opponent.


Washington, DC (September 17, 2016)—Friday evening, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump once again speculated about violence against his Democratic counterpart, Secretary Hillary Clinton.

Echoing decades-long talking points from the National Rifle Association and pro-gun extremists, Trump suggested disarming Secret Service agents protecting Clinton. “She doesn’t want guns, take their – let’s see what happens to her,” Trump said. “Take their guns away, okay? It will be very dangerous.”

The thinly veiled intimation that gun owners could take up arms against Secretary Clinton is nothing new. Last month, Trump alluded to the possibility of Clinton’s assassination, saying “Second Amendment people” could do something to prevent a President Clinton from choosing Supreme Court Justices.

“Trump’s pattern of inciting violence is deplorable — plain and simple,” said CSGV Executive Director Josh Horwitz. “This type of language is dangerous and irresponsible. It has no place in the American political process and should be repudiated immediately by Americans of all political stripes.”

2. Locking

Again, this topic is, at its core, about Trump being a deplorable asshole. Secret Service agents, as law-enforcement personnel, are not armed civilians and thus not affected, on duty at least, by either the 2nd Amendment or the various gun-control laws in effect.

This topic belongs in GD or GD: P.
