Some action effectively serving the same purpose as revoking the second amendment could very well do it. And we all know who it is that has their sights set on doing that here.

The 2020 election. Something tells me it will be very ugly, maybe the ugliest election since 1860.

Trump hasn’t uttered a word in defense of the protestors. I’m glad that he hasn’t because it’s none of his business.

Yet, you Conservatives aren’t criticizing him like you’re STILL doing to Obama for not standing with the Iranian protestors. Why’s that? Cat got your tongue?

BTW...Obama was right too.

No we donít. I havenít a clue. Tell us.

BTW, I know a good way to get Republicans to support extremely tight gun restrictions if history really repeats itself. Get a group of blacks to openly carry rifles and guns on public streets.

Thatís how Reagan got the Mulford Act passed with the support of the NRA.

You've demonstrated a breaktakingly ignorant assumption about Hong Kong and the situation there with the foolish and clumsy attempt to apply US political sobriquets to foreign political situations.

The HK government is proposing (or WAS proposing) the extradition condtions there - and Carrie Lam (the Chief Executive) is definitely not the Hong Kong equivalent of liberal, millenial, or a snowflake. She's an establishment career civil servant.

The young people in Hong Kong are pro free market capitalists. Their parents and grandparents learned first hand that communism and socialism don't work.

They already do in some areas of gang infested cities along with Latino gangs. That's why law abiding people of ALL races want the choice to arm themselves. Loony Leftists can't seem to grasp the concept that criminals don't obey laws which is why they are criminals.


Law abiding gun owners who are black tend to be Trump supporters.

Bizarre post OP....you sounded really reasonable until you decided to inject U.S politics into it and then compare Communist party in China to Democrats and liberals in here. Funny thing though, is I always see the Left protesting authority...and when they do, you ask them where they get the free time and why don't they have jobs? Right-wingers protest...but only on abortion or if it's organized by a astroturf group such as the Tea Party protests. Also, I don't see the Left calling the free press in this country "enemies of the people" like your Dear Leader Trump. This is talk you only see in countries like China or N. Korea! Sure....the Left wants to restrict gun ownership in order to lower gun murders....but they don't call for a full on ban. You also forget that full authoritarian power can come from either the Far Left or the Far Right......such as either Stalin and Mao.....or Hitler and Mussolini!
