A complete takeover by government of all industries and private property is not a threat in the USA. Ranting about liberals - equally ridiculous as many folks who support gun rights are not interested in conservative positions on sexuality, for instance. Dog whistling racism is not an attractive facet of some of the more conservative types, so demanding conservative purity is equally idiotic. If folks want being conservative vs. liberal as a litmus test - then the shrinking white male conservative demographic will weaken the gun rights position. In fact, there is a wave of gun rights supporters who see the conservative wave as a reason to buy into the defense against tyranny and an increase in violent racism. For the true believers, I read Trump's speech to the NRA. It is a bag of nothing but platitudes. The UN treaty has nothing to do with American gun rights in any fashion. Trump spent a whole lot of time talking about himself and the Wall. Irrelevant. He said: BUMP STOCKS - you liar. They may be stupid but your precedent was a horrendous threat. Trump play acted using a gun to stop terrorist attacks. That's good but where is the action on reciprocity, where is a clear statement against the growing magazine bans that limit the gun you could carry in defense? Where is the rhetoric that he hopes those fine new Justices actually take case that will negate state MSSA bans, as an AR was used in Sutherland for the good. Will the new AG lead suits to remove the restrictions and delays in getting a handgun in several states? Heller should have stopped that but didn't. HPA, can't hear you Donald. The is what we need rather than blather about socialists. Socialist Bob Dole, Romney, the Bushes, etc. were for the AWB. You want gun rights - then all Americans need to support it and not just a subsection of a shrinking demographic that might send a check to Wayne.
