"'Second Amendment People' have terrorized no one. How often have we heard about the NRA being the most effective lobby group from both supporters and detractors alike? The success of the gun lobby is because the NRA and other organizations know how to recruit and organize members and petition and persuade governments at the local, state, and federal level. If the NRA was an environmental organization, liberals would be saying, 'This is how democracy works!' Given the effectiveness of the NRA and other gun rights groups in the legislative arena, why would any Second Amendment person have any reason to resort to violence? The idea that 'Second Amendment people' are out to kill Hillary Clinton -- Trump or no Trump -- is absolute rubbish." (08/11/16)
