President Trump has promised to protect the Second Amendment in the event of passing the proposed gun reforms. Of course, this is the very definition of an oxymoron.
This is the only the second time Trump has hinted on a possible “compromise” on the issue, if you do not count his "take the guns first" comments, his signing of the Fix NICS bill into law in 2017, his calls to ban suppressors, or his unilateral banning of bump stocks. This came when asked whether he would stand up to the NRA in supporting the proposed gun reforms.
“I don’t want to have crazy people have guns... But, we’re going to do nothing to hurt the Second Amendment. And what we want to do is see if we can come up with a compromise, and that’s what we’re working on,” Trump said during an exclusive interview with Ed Henry on Fox News.
It is still unclear which issues the President is willing to “compromise” on. Regardless, any legislation that further infringes on the natural right to bear arms. Any so-called "compromise" on that is anything but, as we will be the only ones losing our liberty. A real compromise requires both parties to give something up, and since 1934, gun owners have been the only party to give up anything in a vain attempt to curb evil.
The Incumbent also pointed out that most of the problems related to the proposed legislation was due to hard line taken by some anti-gun proponents such as Beto O’Rourke. O’Rourke had proposed a mandatory buyback program for some types of rifles.
Such remarks had raffled feathers among the gun ownership community triggering a heated debate including the famous “My AR 15 is ready for you” remarks by State Rep. Briscoe Cain, which O'Rourke reported to the FBI as a death threat.
Trump pointed out that most Democrats and Republicans were unwilling to engage in the debate due to such hard line stands such as that taken by O’Rourke.
"Look, I'm a very strong believer in the Second Amendment," Trump added. "We're going to protect our Second Amendment. We have plenty of ideas." Of course, this is the exact same thing all butters say. "I support the Second Amendment, but..." Anything before the "but" is a lie because you cannot fully support the natural right to bear arms while simultaneously supporting government's authority to regulate it.
This is exactly why your support is so important. Politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, do not view our right to bear arms as a natural right. Even Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in Heller that the Second Amendment granted the right to bear arms to the people.
