John Lott: Donald Trump protects gun owners' rights

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

President Trump has been clear about where he stands on issues like illegal immigration, trade, and radical Islam. Gun control went largely undiscussed during the election campaign, so I spoke with John Lott about Second Amendment rights under Donald Trump.

Trump's a Manhattan guy, and New York has some of the strictest gun control laws in the United States. John revealed that before his presidential bid, Trump was one of the few concealed carry permit holders in New York City. He understands personally the benefits of being able to defend oneself.

Since being elected, Trump has overturned an Obama-era regulation that prevented 4.5 million seniors on Social Security from owning guns. 

WATCH to see how an Obama initiative called Operation Choke Point put pressure on financial institutions to boycott the gun industry, and how President Trump will move ahead in defense of legal gun owners.

Arms control of the people is not an enumerated power!

video on arms, here it is: https://vimeo.com/60944105

State concealed carry laws which require a “permit” is an idea crafted in the pits of hellll. The real purpose is to register gun owners! People think it is so cool to have a permit for concealed carry – they don’t understand that it is like the free sample of heroin.

The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers" delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.’ A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power."

I hope the Donald packs 24/7 with all the vipers in the swamp.

Gun control was conceived in the democrat controlled southern states as a means to keep the black population disarmed and unable to defend against night riders.

Good for you President Trump (may peace be upon him)

Actually, Trump has been very pro-firearms from the beginning and was endorsed by the NRA early in the campaign.

One of the first things fascists want to do is take away peoples guns. Sound familiar?
