Get ready, Mesa County Republicans. President Trump wants to take your guns!


President Trump on Wednesday called for seizing guns belonging to people who are deemed to present a danger to others without allowing them due process first.

“I like taking the guns early, like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida … to go to court would have taken a long time,” Trump told a group of lawmakers at a meeting about school safety and gun violence.

“Take the guns first, go through due process second,” Trump said.

Vice President Pence then said local law enforcement should have more tools to report potentially dangerous individuals with weapons, and added authorities should “…allow due process so no one’s rights are trampled, but the ability to go to court, obtain an order and then collect not only the firearms but any weapons.” After this, Trump shot back:

“Or, Mike, take the firearms first, and then go to court,”

    So Trump is your president now. Wow, that’s really disconcerting.

      Flipped already, have you?
      Are you now going to claim he was never your President, now that Putin has literally threatened him and the U.S., and your Cheeto Messiah hasn’t the spine to even respond? That’d be about your speed.

      Of course he’s the President. He was elected, via the electoral college. I’ve never questioned that.
      But, way to avoid the point. That Trump actually said we should take away people’s guns without due process. You’re okay with that, then?

    I wouldn’t take it seriously. Trump is just flailing now. He can’t keep a position straight from one day to another. He’s so desperate for approval that he’ll say anything to anyone if the thinks it will get him some positive response, however briefly. Even Putin, the man Trump genuflects to, is openly challenging him now, knowing Trump doesn’t have the spine to respond, It’s almost sad to watch. Almost.

    Imagine the uproar if President Obama had said the same thing. Where’s the outrage from the peeps who howled about Obama taking away people’s guns?

    Yes the snake is autobiographical for Trump, look that word up if you are stumped. The man leading the zombie apocalypse will flip and flop all over your distorted constitutional right.

    It is unusually quiet here. Trump is referring to guns held by people in the middle of criminal act. He would NEVER come for your guns. He would Never tell you one thing and do another. Those that voted this Constitutional scholar in to office, got just what he said he was the other day in the snake story…written by a black author.
