Ralph let me have it with both barrels for Trump: Actually, I Don’t Want Guns in the Classroom. Except Teachers. Maybe. I deleted his comment according to our posting policy on flaming, but the gist of it is simple enough: Ralph reckons I hate Donald Trump more than I hate Hillary Clinton. Wrong. I’m under no illusions about which is the worse candidate when it comes to defending American’s gun rights: Hillary Clinton. When the time comes, I will hold my nose, cover my eyes and block my ears and vote for Trump. That does not mean . . .
I will ignore Mr. Trump’s squidginess on gun rights, or his squidginess generally (which makes me doubt his promises on gun rights). I will continue to point out Mr. Trump’s inconsistencies on this issue.
This is not a personal vendetta. I criticize Mr. Trump because it’s my job to tell the truth about guns, no matter what. In the same sense that TTAG provides honest gun reviews, I will not pull my punches regarding The Donald’s “evolving” stance on firearms freedom. I will write about Mr. Trump’s gun-related remarks when I believe it’s merited, just as I will highlight Hillary Clinton’s extreme threat to our gun rights as it continues to manifest itself.
If Mr. Trump is elected President, I will continue to hold his feet to the fire. Our gun rights are too important to roll over and show our collective stomachs to anyone who promises to protect them. On this site, that’s not how we roll. Your thoughts?
[Note: TTAG’s flaming policy is off for this post, save really stupid stuff.]
