NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – President Trump, in a fiery and freewheeling speech to conservative activists on Friday, implored his base to get off their “ass” and “clobber” Democrats in upcoming elections so they won’t try to repeal the Second Amendment, undo recent tax cuts and install liberal judges.

“If they get in, they will repeal your tax cuts,” Trump said during an appearance at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference outside Washington. “They will put judges in that you wouldn’t believe. They will take away your Second Amendment, which we will never allow to happen.”

Trump, in a speech reminiscent of those during the campaign, ticked off his accomplishments over the last year, including passing tax cuts, deciding to move the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem and withdrawing from the Paris climate accord.

The president also used the occasion to address the recent debate over gun control, in the wake of last week’s school shooting massacre in Florida, and call for more armed security in schools. Had teachers been armed in Florida, Trump said, “the teacher would have shot the hell out of [the attacker] before he knew what happened.”

    Gun restrictions are only for the “honest citizen” who will probably obey that law but criminals and most mentally challenged people will NEVER obey any gun restriction law.

    Where is the outrage about the schol administration not taking any action beforehand? Where is the outrage of what is reported about the local police lack of action? Where is the outrage at the failure of FBI action on prior warnings? Where was the outrage at the lack of action by fellow students who witnessed his actions? Where is the outrage at those with whom he lived? Nowhere, that’s where! I do not own a gun. I am not an NRA member. Stop blaming the NRA and challenging the second amendment, and start realizing the root causes of these atrocities. Yes, changes should be made regarding age limits, bumps, and high powered rifles available for sale. All I have seen is a governor foistering blame, a principal foistering blame, a police chief foistering blame, and students who never spoke out. May God have mercy on those who lost their lives and their families to this horrific tragedy! Also, keep in mind, that 250,000 people were killed by knives this past year. Is this the fault of the NRA?

    There has never been jeopardy for the 2nd amendment, a charge that has always been phony but fronted by the NRA and base Trump supporters owning guns. Every one of the Bill of Rights Amendments has been modified and so should the one on gun ownership. There is no free speech that jeopardizes life; neither should there be unlimited guns that jeopardize 32000 lives each year not unlimited warfare assault weapons like the AR-15 or large magazines. Even law enforcement hates that they are outgunned by ordinary citizens who have no restraints in buying weapons that kill many people fast. Time to stop these fantasy land wild west cowboys and ban appropriate weapons/magazines, while registering gun purchasers after background checks as guns have become a national security issue like terrorism.

    I AGREE 100% WITH TRUMP AND I AM A REG DEM. WE HAVE WELL TRAINED PEOPLE HERE THAT CAN TAKE THE EYES OUR OF A SQURRELS AT 50 YARDS. WE WILL STILL NEED RIFLES AT THE SCHOOLS, WHAT HAPPENS IS A SHOOTER IS A HALF BLOCK AWAY AND STARTS SHOOTING KIDS WHEN THEY ARE LOADING AND UNLOADING IN THE MORNING AND AFTERNOONS.

    WE HAVE TO GET RID OF THE BACK PACKS, NOT ONLY GUNS CAN BE BROUGHT IN, BUT EXPLOSIVES, CHEMICALS, KNIVES. PLEASE USE THE COMPUTERS THAT WE ALREADY HAVE, YOU CAN DOWN LOAD A LOT OF BOOKS ON A ELECTRONIC NOTE BOOK OR MOST TELEPHONES, WHY CANT THE TEACHER DOWNLOAD LESSONS ON A JUMP DRIVE AND GIVE TO THE STUDENT. FOLKS WE ARE IN THE DAYS OF ELECTRONICS, NOT THE HORSE AND BUGGY DAYS.
