Let's play a quick game of find the potential tyrant. I suspect you won't be there to help remove him if he pretends the election was invalid. Who is the potential tyrant in this picture?

If Griff said what it looks like Griff said...

NOT what Griff said.

Seriously, my child: YOU can call him anything you like. That doesn't MAKE him anything. Nor does it make ME believe anything. Not even if petulance is your latest hobby. You're afraid of the wrong people, you know.

How many genuine tyrants afford a Second Amendment? Think they could? And how does DJT view the Second?

I see V, tw, and Griff would rather make their root-canal appointments than look up what Trump's view of the Second Amendment is.

Any 2A activist you know will tell you that the electorate armed is something a tyrant cannot survive nor endure.

Griff's stance is particularly untenable -- and were he genuinely concerned the country was sliding into tyranny or something, Griff would be out getting at least three firearms: a rifle (an AR type in 5.56mm NATO chambering probably the easiest to feed regardless), a pistol suiting his tastes, and a .22 rimfire (anything) to practice with surely and cheaply. Centerfire ammo runs into bucks unless you'd like to get into reloading, which in a genuinely concerning national situation of the above sort might be a darn good option to have around.

But I do not observe a sign of genuine, true concern from him. What I see reading between his lines is an intense emotional state -- like fear. As I said, of the wrong people.

Griff is well armed.

Trump supports the 2nd in hopes that Vanilla ISIS is Standing BY. We are beyond well-armed as a nation. We have enough guns and ammo to kill the shit out of each other while Putin enjoys the show. We'd be better off respecting the electoral process and learning how to interact with the government officials we elect instead of taking our guns to the State House every time we are asked to be humane.
