“It’s an Assassination Threat” — Trump Says “2nd Amendment Folks” Should Stop Hillary Clinton

Wilmington, N.C. — At a rally in North Carolina for the GOP hopeful Donald Trump on Tuesday, the presidential candidate said some words that have people up in arms. During a rant on gun rights, Trump implied that “2nd Amendment Folks” could shoot Hillary Clinton to stop her from naming Supreme Court justices.

“Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the 2nd Amendment,” Trump told the crowd in Wilmington. “By the way, and if she gets to pick if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the 2nd Amendment people, maybe there is. I don’t know.”

Hillary Clinton is a criminal, and for her crimes, she deserves to be held accountable. Also, the 2nd Amendment shall not be infringed. However, what Donald Trump is alluding to in the video below is essentially the removal of due process through assassination.

While many people stuck in the partisan divide will undoubtedly defend Trump’s statement, it is important to recognize that his statement was made with the presumption that after Hillary is elected, she will get to choose supreme court judges that will uphold Gun Control measures. The key word being *AFTER* But, how exactly will those “2nd Amendment folks” be able to do something about it after she is elected?

As Trump decries the violence against police officers in the United States, he apparently cares not about violent insurrection aimed at taking out his political rivals.

After he made this statement, Clinton’s main Super PAC, Priorities USA, immediately denounced Trump.

“Donald Trump Just Suggested That Someone Shoot Hillary Clinton,” the group’s spokesman Justin Barasky said in an email to reporters. “THIS IS NOT OK.”

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) also responded to Donald Trump’s 2nd Amendment comments.

Of course, while conducting damage control for his campaign, Trump’s senior media advisor, Jason Miller, insisted that Trump was referring only to political action by gun-rights supporters, and he assailed media coverage of the remark, releasing what he called a “statement on dishonest media” after the rally, according to the LA Times.

“It’s called the power of unification — 2nd Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power,” it said. “And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won’t be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump.”

The NRA also jumped to Trump’s defense after the comments as well — which is particularly ironic given their silence on Philando Castile’s gun rights. 

Either way you slice it, Trump’s remarks in the video below are highly irresponsible given the current hostile climate in the country today. A single off the cuff comment like this could’ve pushed someone on the verge of violently snapping, over the edge.

When listening to the crowd’s reaction after he made the statement, it becomes perfectly clear how people interpreted what he said.

    More “spin” to make Trump look bad. (ever heard of the “voting booth”)
    Although, if you have been following Hitlery, 3 MORE people “that knew too much” are now GONE. She doesn’t “suggest” it…. she HIRES it done. Too many “coincidences” for it NOT to be done by her “acquaintances”

    Whether he meant it as such or not, armed insurrection and abolishment of governmental tyranny is part and parcel of the primary reason for the inclusion of the second in our constitution. Although, I tend to think that this remark, as are many of Trumps nonsensical voiced brain-farts, was delivered in an offhand manner, with no actual “call to arms” intended.

    Anyone who thinks a Trump presidency will change anything or stop the steadily encroaching police state in the USSA is in denial or is just plain delusional.

    So is the article saying all 2nd Amendment people are murderers? I think the trail of bodies is on the DNC side

    Look at this….apartheid and martial law has been going for years in Baltimore, and it has absolutely nothing to do with Trump.

    Wow I don’t believe trump implied a assassination threat at all. taken out of content. Now Hilary Clinton implied a assassination attempt might happen to Obama in May 2008. Look it up. Biden threaten Obama with a Beretta if he would try take his guns away. But I suppose those were just Gaffs…..

  • Robert Griffis

    Flabbergasted by this brouhaha. That even a free thought project writer would buy into the BS is as good an example of scripted media and groupthink that I can recall.

  • Joel W

    Anybody who takes that as an assassination threat is functionally retarded. To those of us with brains that deal with logic and reason, he means that that gun owners should be sure to vote against her. And honestly, this is highly irresponsible reporting from this site.

    More dangerous than even the foul succubus called Clinton, as it applies to our desperate need to retain our forearms to protect us from a co-opted and purely evil government, is the continued allowing to “appoint” dual citizens in trade for re-election/election to power. Look into the eyes of the REAL scum wanting our weapons before they unleash their first waves of “youth first responders” – AKA Neo CHEKA upon us.

    Most aren’t aware we are already a betrayed nation/people via the Central banks’ U.N. and a little known treaty that has essentially suspended our constitution. As for you fools who are PRO gun confiscation, even a blithering idiot need only look as far as Mexico to see where we will end up should we allow “planted” dual citizens to disarm us via the very-nearly dual citizen controlled SCOTUS

    In addition, as is the case with dual citizen’s forcing deviant sex upon us while outlawing it in Israel, they work to disarm us here while they lessen same in “occupied Palestine”;

    Be wary of fact hunting at shill sites the likes of Huffington post, Raw Story, Wikipedia et al. If they censor ANY and ALL criticism of occupied Palestine, that should set off alarms in your head.

    Trump was simply re-iterating why the 2nd Amendment was included in our constitution. It wasn’t any kind of a threat, just a simple statement of fact. The 2nd Amendment isn’t about hunting or target shooting, it was about defense of liberty and the prevention of tyranny, the latter of which Trump was commenting on.
