Donald Trump's Merry Gun Christmas

It's going to a bleak holiday season for millions of Americans who still can't quite believe that Donald Trump is their president.

Just like we Canadians can't believe that's really Santa.

But of course Trump supporters will be celebrating, and so will the National Rifle Association.

Because they're hoping that he will be bringing them the best present EVER.

A gun control-free America. 

Firearms enthusiasts who embraced Donald Trump's campaign and his full-throated support of the Second Amendment are expecting a sweeping expansion of gun rights under his administration and a Congress firmly in Republican hands.

"This is our historic moment to go on offense and to defeat the forces that have aligned against our freedom once and for all," Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the National Rifle Association, said in a video after the Nov. 8 election.

No more concealed gun bans, no more gun-free zones, no more letting background checkers know that an applicant is mentally ill.

Another Obama rule that Trump could jettison would make it easier for some health care providers to share information about mental illness with the federal background check system. Critics worry that sharing such details could unfairly deny gun rights to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress.

Because goodness knows, we don't want to keep weapons out of the hands of veterans suffering from PTSD. So they can't shoot themselves or others.

Or stop a God fearing American from checking out the story that Hillary Clinton was running a child prostitution ring in the back room of a Washington pizzeria.

Or heaven forbid keep weapons out of schools.

So it's not surprising that an organization set up after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre...

Has released this video to warn children to keep their eyes open for the killers in their midst...

And the good news, the only good news?

Since the video was released three days ago it has been watched by more than 3.5 million people.

Let's hope it can save some young lives.

But where are our neighbours going?

And who can say it's not madness?

Funny I just watched the Purge Election Year last night.

Wait a minute, I thought that the United States had zero gun control whatsoever, that anybody could go into a pawn shop and walk out with a Gau-8 Avenger. We're perpetually told, mostly by you, and people like you that "we could be like the United States," but all of a sudden they have gun control? What kind of voodoo nonsense is this?

Reminds me of the terrorist attack in Ohio last week. The media dropped that story real quick. The attacker was a muslim who used a car and a knife as weapons, and was taken out by a cop with... a gun!

Whoops, there goes the narrative.

GAU-8 Avenger, nice.....but you think you the average lefty even knows what that is? Show them a pic of one and they will most likely call it an AR15 or Ruger Mini 14.

I wonder what percentage of American gun lovers think if the government can have nuclear arms, why not citizens? 8-)

Hi David...don't ask. Just read some of the comments above, and know that they're capable of ANYTHING...

Guess Trump doesn't understand regardless of who he is or how rich he is a bullet can kill him just as well as the next person. he is not only risking the lives of many people by removing gun registration laws, etc. but he is also risking his own life. Oh, well you can not save those who will not save themselves, as the saying goes.

unrestricted gun ownership in the U.S.A. will make it a very dangerous place to be. Glad I live in Canada.
