President Trump: The Second Amendment Will Never Be Repealed

Following the budget bill capitulation and Saturday’s media gun control love fest, President Donald Trump, as is his wont, took to Twitter again early this morning to let America’s gun owners know they have nothing to worry about. As time.com reports . . .

President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that the Second Amendment “WILL NEVER BE REPEALED” and called on voters to elect more Republicans in this fall’s congressional elections because the GOP “must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court.”

Trump’s statements came a day after retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens wrote in an essay in The New York Times that repealing the amendment would make it easier for Congress to enact gun control legislation.

Fortunately, no one really wants to repeal the Second Amendment. And as Time (somehow that’s still a thing) wants us to know . . .

There is no current, major push to repeal the Second Amendment. Any effort to do so would be unlikely to succeed in today’s divisive political climate. Under the most common way to amend the Constitution, the House and Senate would both need to approve the proposal by two-thirds majorities. It would then need to be ratified by three-fourths of the states.

Are you reassured?

      Wow. Just wow. Trump really has no idea how this country works. America, to trump, is not a country. It’s nothing but property to buy and sell. Same with the Supreme Court. God help us all.

        The organization says it already has another 200 community events, plus 75 legislative meetings at Senate offices in 41 states. The group says it has 4 million members and that 33,000 student “recruits” join each week, eager to found their own chapters and focus on voter registration drives “to call out lawmakers beholden to the gun lobby.

        Not sure I share that whole sentiment. There need to be Constitutional purists on SCOTUS. Not the morons that people like Barry appointed (Kaegan) or that old cow Ginsberg. Neither understand the Constitution.

        1. avatar John in Ohio says:

          The Supreme Court created its own power of judicial review out of thin air early in the nation’s history. A constitutional purist on the Supreme Court would be questioning the very reason that the court was deciding these cases at all.

          Ding, ding, ding, ding. How interpreting the Constitution saying the supreme court justices must uphold their oath to the Constitution as meaning they have the power to judicial review is probably the biggest flim-flammery the high court has ever pulled over the citizens of this country. The gov’t hasn’t had check and balances since Madbury v Madison, just an all-powerful judiciary branch.

      3. avatar Rick says:

        Why would the supreme court matter if the 28th amendment repealed the 2nd? That’s not a job for SCOTUS. Would they then say the constitution is unconstitutional, brain hurt.

        Him being confused, not knowing, and not caring to educate himself, really ticks me off.

      Finally I found someone on this forum who is not a complete Moron. You hit the nail right on the head.

      “How foolish are the Fools who cannot see reality”. CK 2018

      The real facts are that the Second Amendment is already dead and gone because the Supreme Court simply now ignores it starting with the refusal to hear the Maryland Assault Rifle Case. The new way to destroy it is for the Supreme Court to placate Public Opinion and paranoia by just completely ignoring it and let the demagogues who control the States gradually annihilate it into eventual oblivion and right now many States are well on their way down that path with outrageous restrictions, outright gun and ammo bans and now even confiscations for melt downs (Peoples Republic of California). The growing amount of gun bans just introduced in the various States, even those that are classed red are too numerous to even go into here but it is an avalanche that is burying the Second Amendment.

      If you do have a collection of modern arms (smokeless powder) and especially semi-auto pistol, rifle or shotgun now is the time to dump them even it you only get half of what they are worth because the State is not going to give you anything for them when the “turn them in time” comes. Are you beginning to feel the noose tightening around your neck?

          Be rest assured we civilized sane Socialists are working on a new law that will enable us to put Nut Cases like you in jail for years to come. Any Moron that would not act like a responsible adult and vaccinate children has no right to have them as no one has the right to murder children even if they happen to be their own parents. Of course to a nut case this is way over you head. Tell me Jethro do you advocate chanting and dancing naked with a poisonous snake over your head when trying to cure a sick child. Don’t laugh they dance with snakes in W. Virginia or at least they used to a few decades ago but I guess by now thankfully the snakes put the Darwin effect into operation and they have become extinct. Tell me how is it that you managed survive the snake dance. Its hard to believe in the 21st century we have so many ignorant people left but not hard to believe we have so many nut cases like you.

          Save a sick child’s life today and send Phantom Geek a box of rattle snakes so he can resume dancing naked with them over his head. He has gotten rusty in years and needs more dancing practice and the sooner the better. Make sure you train the snakes to strike immediately. Sometimes even the Darwin Effect needs a little help.

        Why would I sell anything? What I own is mine and nobody has the right to pass unconstitutional laws and take it. They wouldn’t succeed anyway. I live in a very defensible place on many acres. It would take a special forces team to get close without me knowing it. Regular police units wouldn’t stand a chance. By the time they got to the door we would be gone. I’ve seen the writing on the wall and sold out in the city and moved to a place where we are self sufficient. There isn’t much we have to leave the ranch to buy if we choose not to. I realize most people are not in a situation where they can do that and understand where they are coming from. However long before this latest crap started I knew that we needed to do it and did.

        Very true. These kids are out there with their signs saying kill all the gun owners, we will try them from your cold dead hands etc. My question is with what? Are you going to demand I I turn them over and protest till I do? Are you going to beat me to death with a dildo? Just how do you think you will take guns from let’s just say 9 million pissed off gun owners? (Approx 3% of population) We still make up by far the largest armed force in the world and it’s high time the politicians remembered that little fact. Why did they back off of Bundy Ranch? Was it because higher ups said to or was it the numerous gun owners in sniper positions that nobody wanted to mess with? BLM was in a very bad spot when it came to leaving peacefully and they knew it.

        1. avatar Mahatma Muhjesbude says:

          I know people ‘who’ were at the Bundy Stand off. There were more than a few highly trained and combat experienced marksmen with state of the art equipment. But it was only a small group of BLM with some local Law Enforcement back up and a few dogs. Had they over reacted and fired upon the Bundy group just because they ‘thought’ some of the Bundy defenders were going to shoot, it would have been a slaughter. Plans were for some of the defenders to do a quick fall back if any shooting started with a double flanking tactic and end it fast, while snipers on the high ground in prone positions kept them pinned. Relatively easy maneuver the BLM

          But if they brought in heavy combat equipment like armor and grenade launchers and etc., like we were pretty sure they were planning and waiting for, then the defenders would have been slaughtered.

          But that never happened because the word came from way upstairs to put their tails between their asses let it go completely. This was because of the political season at the time that the Leftists didn’t want any messy publicity to upset.

          But they got even the next time. At the Malheur Wildlife Refuge. They brought in FBI operators who take no prisoners. Set up a no win ambush and took out some opposition leadership by murdering Lavoy Finnicum as an ‘example’ to teach any future anti-G Revo inclined dissent groups a lesson for the future they won’t easily forget about trying to impress people with a little dressing up like wanna-be gunslingers and talking cowboy shit.

          The lesson is that while it is true that a heavily armed populate (and growing and growing. You wouldn’t believe the Vegas Shot Show this year, and how much of the good stuff is going on back order) is a seemingly a righteous deterrent, as the Founders knew, but there’s a huge caveat that all the armchair-borne Rangers and couch commandos don’t understand from just watching Rambo and Red Dawn kiddie cartoons.

          It’s all in the psychology and tactics. As a few perspicacious comments alluded to.
          While it’s true that small guerilla forces in notable wars against the monster U.S. military might seemed to incessantly diminish the Superior firepower of our Armies, the reality was never as it seemed.

          The reality truth is the American Forces really didn’t want to win swiftly and decisively.
          There’s no long term profit in that for the Military Industrial Complex and its Wall Street money marketers. The iconic classic case of the epitome of guerilla warfare in Viet Nam proved this. It was an intentionally self-restricting endeavor. Had we deployed corrected goal oriented decisive anti-insurgent warfare tactics, which sometimes happened in small autonomous commands to prove the point, it was no competition. And in the end, when the milk cow on that particular imperialist farm was dry, We replicated it in Afghanistan.
          Still the multi-millions of enemy combatants and civilians killed by American troops compared to U.S. losses almost amounted to genocide.

          In an American government oppositional reaction to a total dismantling of the 2nd/A that escalated to violence and a shooting resistance, things would be considerably different.

          The main reason is that we are a complete Surveillance State by now–which is why the Marxist Left feels emboldened by passing Fiat Laws on a state level that continue to make everyone a criminal eventually subject to target focus ‘enforcement teams’ to keep certain groups and individuals forever disarmed under the rules of the 68 Gun Control Act making it illegal for ex-cons to own guns.

          As someone pointed out, this totalitarian agenda may have began one night in the darkest places in a despotic mind, but it didn’t happen Last night. Its schema was hatched at the turn of the 20th century and seriously in progress since WWII. And now, being fully implemented thanks to the added advantages of A.I. and super surveillance technology. They actually have to kill your 4th/A rights to privacy before they eliminate our 2nd/A rights. And that’s already almost over. Would have been ‘gone girl’ already had hellwench seized the throne.

          I won’t elaborate for eight more pages on exactly how they will seize most of our weapons before any significant resistance backed by an armed threat of citizens’ force could be launched. But you have to think about it like this. Why does the FBI maintain a fleet of over 300 light planes equipped with the most sophisticated secret radar image day/night distance enhancing equipment to fly high enough where their small presence would be relatively unnoticeable? Why are all agencies buy specialized drones. What’s the real reason they don’t want to legalize gun silencers, or suppressors to you anal people. ( although is it considered only a suppressor when when all you can hear is the cycling of the action, and i’m not talking just a .22 here)?
          Hint, it for a ‘tactical’ reason against insurgent guerilla style ambush attacks!
          …And So, so, so on.

          The bottom of the barrel reality slap is this. All the moutholution talking of shit in the world blows right out your stinking ass nozzle and down your trembling legs when that Ma Deuce mounted on that blast proof Federal Armored Assault Vehicle starts barking down on you and starts exploding your friends and neighbors’ bodies into pieces of bloody pulp when Y’all somehow got up enough whiskey balls to grab their AK’s and shitguns and stand in front of one watching their rounds bounce off like air soft pellets off trees in their last great act of dying defiance. ‘Hey Maw, Ah got mah Danial Defense AR with a 100 round C-Mag loaded with AP rounds, watch this?’ Feed mah hound dawg if this takes more time that we think, will ya please, Maw?’

          The Fed anti-Terrorist agencies are already all set to rock and roll (courtesy of your tax dollars) against serious small start up anti-g guerilla groups. They know who all of them are already, or potentially are. They know where they live, what they say and think, what they do, what they drive, where they go, andthey have specific tactics to take them out fast and furiously at a moment’s notice at their leisure.

          If any widespread resistance to search, seize, and confiscation operations get out of hand for any length of time, like they did in Detroit and Chicago, back in the 68 shooting riots, they’ll Declare Specific Area Martial Law control and bring in the National Guard and special Anti-Terrorist units.

          As for the rest of the angry, dissenting, ‘up in arms’ people who have ‘cached’ their shit in a good hide-out? What good will it be to have them buried when you’ll never get to them because of all the surveillance, and paid citizen snitch groups, patrolling police drones no longer subject to search warrant restrictions and etc., etc.?

          I mean, why weren’t all us moutholutionist Patriots shutting down funding for all this illegal anti-4th/A search and surveillance and citizen spying? Well you don’t want to hear why anyway, because it’s too late now. Just like it’s going to be too late in less than a year. For the same reason. Apathy and flawed personal attitudes and abject social laziness.

          And let’s be honest, if not rational. If we can’t even keep a conservative pro-second amendment Congress in office by November (Soros’s below radar PAC group is already chalking up wins) how the fuck does anyone in their right stupid mind think that the masses will be able rise up in arms and prevail in a terrifying government threatening armed force a successful Jeffersonian anti-totalitarian revolution, when they can’t even organize and put in the effort to keep their pro-2nd/A political party intact?!

          It’s too late to wake up AFTER the nightmare…

But… Just not 18-20 year old Americans. Or old Americans. Or Americans who once bought a bump stock, because they are felons. Or Americans who have family members, ex girlfriends or boyfriends, or co-workers who don’t like them. And you need to keep it locked up, unloaded at home. And don’t carry it anywhere, unless you get super special permission. And no one should have nasty weapons of war. Or guns used by police. And you must pass background checks to buy ammo. And silencers must be registered.”

      Is there some kind of Neurotoxin in the Chemtrailing that’s brainwashing us? ((Geoengineeringwatch.com)

      1. avatar DerryM says:

        @Mahatma Muhjesbude: The only answer I can offer (and it is probably quite inadequate) is that the Supreme Court Of The United States (SCOTUS) could resolve this matter by agreeing to hear arguments on the matter and ruling that the Second Amendment means exactly what it says, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”, or to rule that it does not. SCOTUS has consistently declined to hear arguments and make a definitive ruling either way, but rather seems to have ruled “bits and pieces” and largely left it to the States to do as they see fit. This results in a patchwork of freer gun rights and severely impaired gun rights that are not applied equally to all American Citizens. Liberty and tyranny co-existing depending on what State one lives in is unacceptable IMHO( to put it charitably). Neither Congress nor SCOTUS seems to have the stomach to correct this egregious situation.

        The History of Case Law and SCOTUS rulings on the Second Amendment is long and complicated. It is beyond my poor powers of legalese to dare attempt to interpret it. What I wrote is a common Pro-2A sentiment and, I think, a valid observation, but not likely to ever happen. Hence “the Gorilla in the Police Station” remains the crux of the ongoing argument

    If I thought Trump actually understood the purpose of the 2nd Amendment or any of the other amendments in the Bill of Rights, and believed he cared beyond what his fan base, the media, and his friends think of him maybe I’d be reassured.

    They don’t need to repeal the 2nd Amendment with Trump’s Justice Department unilaterally banning whatever gun or accessory is too scary for the peasants to have…

      Yep. “We will never repeal the 2nd BUT we’ll do a lot of other things to it.”

    Thanks for the clarification Don. Im sure your continual twitter rants will provide an effective force field around the Constitution. Much appreciated. Now how’s that Reciprocity thing coming along? Wasn’t it supposed to be part of the Fix NICS package? Oh right, never mind.

  16. avatar Jason says:

    You don’t need to repeal it. Just “common sense gun reform” it until it means nothing. We’re pretty much already there. The militia part has already been removed and replaced with self defense and hunting.

  17. avatar zombietimeshare says:

    I expect he is right, the 2A will never be repealed. However, the left will to try and effectively legislate, regulate, and license it out of existence at every opportunity. The left will point to the 2A still being a right, and laughing at anyone attempting to exercise that right.

      Given the current political climate, the DNC won’t be around to laugh about anything in another 10 years. The Hillary campaign was their Waterloo. They lost now it’s all over but the temper tantrums provided we keep the pressure on.

        I don’t know where’ you’re getting that fake news from? Hitlary’s modus operandi is that nothing is ‘over’ until the Fat Lady sings. And with 40 plus Republican legislators supposedly claiming they are not running and stepping down in November’s midterms and it’s a good bet that the Leftists will score big time…especially with Billionaire socialist money behind them…?

    Someone tell Trump to shut the hell up, he already sold us out with his 3D chess failure, and now he wants to pretend to be our savior by “not repealing the 2A”, Sorry Mr Trump Chump, protect the integrity of the 2A in its current form, dont just promise us “no repeal”.

  21. avatar Reggie Browning says:

    Who needs to repeal the second amendment when the Supreme Court can rewrite the constitution as they please?

  22. avatar Ralph says:

    Our mantra is that 2A was enacted as a bulwark against government overreach and tyranny. So what’s changed?

    Government is overreaching, as governments (all of them) always do. We have the guns. Did we mean it when we proclaimed that being armed offers us a level of protection and deterrence, or were we just preening?

    If we are serious, then the G cannot take away our protection just by snapping its mighty fingers. It will have to pay for the guns, and not in coin of the realm. It will take hundreds, if not thousands, of Wacos and Ruby Ridges, and I don’t think that the G has the balls for it.

    Bloomberg, Soros and their ilk are cockroaches, but too much blood is bad for those masters of the universe.

    Justice Stevens discusses his book and the other parts of the Constitution besides 2A he would like to change and some of them are very popular with the majority of American Citizens. What are they? Listen too him and find out what they are and why he wants to change them. Fascinating conversation and no he is not the nut case the Far Right thinks he is. As a matter of fact if we ignore his views on 2a and take a look at his other ideas in regards to changing the Constitution they make perfect sense and are long overdue.

    I am sure Trump will negotiate us a “great” deal on the repeal of the 2nd amendment. No doubt it will be the greatest deal on a repeal of a constitutional amendment ever negotiated. It will be great. The greatest some may say. You will be saying we should repeal more of the bill of rights after this deal. In fact, you may even get tired of all the repealing he is going to do.Trust me.

    Have faith, he is playing a high stakes game of 5D, full contact Go Fish.

    Trump is right, the Second Amendment never will be repealed, especially when the NRA have helped the Russians funnel over $30 million dollars in bribes to his election campaign.

    Trump wants to be popular he is a attention hoe!

    Trump let gun owners down from his promise to be the most pro-gun President ever his words.

    He is illegally banning plastic and rate increasing devices of semi-autos a very dangerous step!

    He signed the illegal broken Fixnics to incentivize with money for states to report more people to NICs like 21 million vets and 4.5 million seniors who need protection the most… and people who seem dangerous to their anti-gun neighbors to be disarmed.

    To those who don’t understand politics! Realize the whole country has shifted more left!

    Left and Right is not what it used to be! A Politician’s goal is to stay elected period!

    If a elected Democrat or Rino is in a 50/50 or 40/40/20(Dem,Rep,Ind) state.. they will try to appease all sides.. that is the game simple of staying in office.

    We have very few true Conservatives in Congress now its just the fact of the population today and the 40 and under crowd in the big cities who are leftist in huge numbers and they are rabid anti-gun!

    We roughly have 32% Dems 28% Repubs and 40% Independents Registered!

    The repubs need to get more of the middle and us #2a peeps to educate the middle that guns are good and #2a protects all the rest.

    So ask a anti are they stupid or a liar? Cuz they don’t want the govt coming after them either or lose their 1st amendment rights!

    Make sure all gun owners u know vote! Talk to people u know and explain the meaning of the #2ndamendmet to them and why it protects all the other rights and our freedom! Tell them to vote #2a for someone who respects their right to self defense of their family!

    In 1856, the U.S. Supreme Court (South v. Maryland) found that law enforcement officers had no duty to protect any individual. Their duty is to enforce the law in general. More recently, in 1982 (Bowers v. DeVito), the Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit held, “…there is no Constitutional right to be protected by the state against being murdered by criminals or madmen.

    District of Columbia v. Heller The court explicitly included weapons in “common use” — such as the semiautomatic AR-15 civilian take on the M-16 rifle as protected by the 2nd amendment!

    United States v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174
    On March 30, 1939, the Supreme Court heard the case. Attorneys for the United States argued:
    The Second Amendment protects only the ownership of military-type weapons appropriate for use in a militia.

    Why should Mr. ‘Get the guns first, due process second’, repeal the 2nd when he can just ignore it?

  30. avatar rbg says:

    When I was a kid, over 50 years ago, our family would travel from anti-gun hell NJ to VT, NH and ME every Summer. My parents had friends that lived in some older Colonial-era homes. In almost every one of them, there was an old flintlock hanging above the fireplace (obviously to keep an authentic appearance). That was the “AR-15” of that era. Our Forefathers recognized the need for arms in the home to protect against invaders both foreign and domestic over 200 years ago. The invaders and the weapons have changed, but the dangers are no less real, and neither is the principle of an armed populace.

  31. avatar Gunr says:

    Why bother with trying to appeal the second amendment, when the antie’s are doing such a good job of depleting our rights as it is!
    I live in Oregon, and some dip shit religious ass holes up in Portland want to ban all simi-autos, and most anything else capable of firing more than 10 rounds, or that has a pistol grip. This would include the new shotgun with a removable magazine.

  32. avatar Sam Toucan says:

    It will never be repealed, just infringed, stepped on, minimized, and frittered away piece by piece.

    In the 30s the leftists tried to ban machineguns by making them expensive with the NFA, in the 60s they placed a govt papertrail on gun purchases with the GCA, in the 80s they slipped a near complete machinegun ban into law when Reagan signed the oddly named FOPA, in the 90s Clinton passed the feel good AWB (with ex President Reagans explicit support.)

    Now we have talk of banning gun accessories, raising the age of ownership, and seizing guns on arbitrary “mental illness” claims, all under Republican leadership. The infringement is non stop.

    Same old crap, different day.
