Because in the Heller decision the majority extended a right to keep and bear arms to individuals outside of the context of a well-regulated militia, Americans are killing themselves and others with guns at a rate of nearly 40,000 annually, yet lawmakers cannot or will not regulate gun ownership and possession because Heller says they can’t.
Consider Trump's campaign of terror on immigrants and people of color, from the Muslim Ban to Trump's demagoguing of Latinos as dangerous threats to white Americans to tearing babies away from their parents and locking them in torturous conditions. Isn't he trying to illegally terrorize people in pursuit of political aims? That is the exact definition of terrorism.
A war is being waged against us; a real war effectuated by the slaughtering of unarmed civilians by heavily armed ultra-extremist sociopaths supported by the Republican Party and the lobbyists bought and owned by the gun industry.
Americans need to be both vigilant and wary of the current situation as this president is not beyond lying to have his ultimate goal of starting a war against an enemy he has no understanding of other than that of hawkish men who have no issue in sending US troops to their slaughter along with the slaughter of tens of thousands of others.
Trump successfully leveraged the racial resentment of President Obama and the social progress under him to build a rabid Coalition of The Spiteful that have come to revere Trump like he was Jesus. Actually, more than Jesus. They follow his commandments over the teachings of Jesus.
The latest NRA propaganda just needs to be shot down quickly and effectively as it stalks this country. Everyone in the country should be armed intellectually with the facts, then the bad guys with the guns can be stopped by the good guys with consciences and solutions.
Trump reacted to being barred from re-entering the U.S. under his extreme vetting plan, "That Executive Order is only supposed to keep hateful extremists out of America! Okay, but I'm white so why is it being used against me?!"
Is it just coincidence that Russia's strategy to undermine democracy during the election was in sync with Trump's?
Is this part of a pattern? Are more Americans becoming mentally unstable or are they just acting out more on their derangement? Has insanity become mainstreamed?
Trump's begrudging statement today about the horrifying events in Charlottesville was delivered stiffly like a disinterested 5th grader reading out loud to his class, with none of the emotion and vehemence of his attacks on the press, Nordstrom and Kathy Griffin.
