Pro-Trump/ Anti-Obama Hypocricy regarding patriotism

Pro-Trump Americans, many of whom were also anti-Obama, include some people who regard the anti-Trump Resistance as allegedly being anti-American and yet during the Obama years lauded the largely anti-Obama Tea Party as true patriots. Hypocrits, in my opinion.  (Tuesday Jun 12 | post #1)

'Get on the Right Side': Shooting Survivors Decry 'Inaction'

strictly speaking, nobody is seriously pushing for a total, 100% ban on private firearms 10 years after the Supreme Court's DC v Heller ruling. Nonetheless, certain people put on their tin-foil hats.  (May 8, 2018 | post #1980)

Is it paranoia to fear a total ban on private firearms?

Yet some pro-gun partisans will "put on their tin-foil hats" by claiming people on the other side still want a total gun ban, even 10 years after the Heller ruling.  (May 8, 2018 | post #2)

Is it paranoia to fear a total ban on private firearms?

First of all, the Supreme Court in 2008 in the DC v Heller ruling declared both a handgun ban and a total ban on private firearrms unconstitutional (but not all gun laws). So in practice even the most hard-line gun controllers will not actually push for a total gun ban.  (May 8, 2018 | post #1)

10 yrs after the Supreme Court's Heller ruling. . .

. . .when thev justices ruled that handgun bans and total gun bans were unconstitutional (but not all gun laws), it would appear that gun control advocates recognize that a total gun ban is nowadays very remote. And yet many pro-gun leaders still act like a total gun ban is a real possibility even years after Heller.  (May 8, 2018 | post #1)

No Way': Trump says Second Amendment won't be repealed

A Second Amendment repeal is NOT even a real option right now. Why? First of all, there would be too much public and popular opposition. Second, it is extremely difficult to amend the U.S. Constitution under any circumstances.  (Apr 5, 2018 | post #103)

It's unlikely that there would be a serious movement to repeal the Second Amendment because passing a constitutional anendment is extremely difficult under any circumstances and also because any attempt to repeal the 2A would be extremely unpopular. Even the most militant gun controllers don't want to touch this with a thousand-foot pole.  (Apr 5, 2018 | post #3)

Just like believing in a flat Earth

10 years ago, the Supreme Court in DC v Heller ruled that a handgun ban or a total ban on private firearms was unconstitutional. But NOT all gun laws. That being said, certain Americans act like a total ban on and confiscation of private firearms is an.immediate threat, even with full knowledge that they are fearing something already declared unconstitutional. Even the most militant and fanatical of gun controllers doesn't push for a total gun ban or handgun ban anymore. (thanks to Heller) To profess fear of something already declater unconstitutional proves you are almost as loony as the Flat Earth Society.  (Mar 19, 2018 | post #1)

In 2008 in DC v Heller, the Supreme Court declared a total gun ban and a handgun ban unconstitutional. Ten years later, I have come to this conclusuon: you simply cannot be a rational, logical-thinking person and at the same time fear a 100% ban on orivate guns.  (Feb 19, 2018 | post #95)

Is it appropriate to fear a total gun ban???

In retrospect, fear of s total gun ban is overblown.  (Feb 16, 2018 | post #18)
