Trump's Second Amendment comment is not a joke

It is a horrifying reminder both of the kind of person he is and of how unsuited he is to President of these United States.  In case you missed it, here's a CNN bit on this latest bit of Trump horror.

If the video doesn't play for you, here's the transcript of the relevant text:

"Hillary wants to abolish -- essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know."
As the video above shows, the Trump campaign is trying to explain that Trump was referring only to voting, but that's clearly bullshit.  If you or I were to make a comment like that about a candidate for President and the Secret Service heard about it, we would be in a world of trouble.

Don't believe me?  CNN reported here the following:
'The former head of the CIA, retired Gen. Michael Hayden, told CNN's Jake Tapper: "If someone else had said that said outside the hall, he'd be in the back of a police wagon now with the Secret Service questioning him."'
I know a lot of people who despise Clinton; that's their right.  With every passing day, though, we gain more proof--as if we needed more--that Trump is not only not fit to be President, he is also a dangerous man we should not trust with any elected office, much less the highest in our land.

The only way to make sure Trump does not win the election is to vote for Clinton.  We have only one sensible path here.  Take it.  Stop Trump.

You're certainly not in a good place with either of the candidates. In the UK we were lucky that Boris Johnston decided not to stand for leader and we got Teresa May instead, so far she seems a very reasonable leader. That said Boris is a very bright person with a colourful history and a passing resemblance to Trump but no where near the extremes. Our leader of the opposition is another matter, but he's up for the vote.

I won't argue that our slate is not ideal, but Trump is so very, very much worse an option that a vote for Clinton is, to me, absolutely mandatory for anyone who does not want Trump--which should, I feel, be everyone.
