The media has crossed the line, AGAIN!
Twisting the words of Donald Trump to create a controversy has become the norm, but fabricating INTENT goes beyond what should be acceptable to any side.
“Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment,” he said Tuesday at a North Carolina rally. “By the way, and if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”
While most intelligent people realize Trump was calling on the tremendous voting power of gun owners as a collective, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and her supporters, took the Republican nominee’s comments as an attempt to incite violence against Clinton.

Don’t treat this as a political misstep. It’s an assassination threat, seriously upping the possibility of a national tragedy & crisis.

Putin’s followers often “joke” about opposition leaders being killed. Posters with crosshairs, etc. Then they are murdered and it’s no joke.

Trump quickly went on the attack, criticizing Clinton and the “dishonest media.”

Media desperate to distract from Clinton’s anti-2A stance. I said pro-2A citizens must organize and get out vote to save our Constitution!

It’s over. Trump has to withdraw from race. His comments about “2nd Amendment people” doing something about Hillary is beyond unacceptable.

@BecketAdams I was in the room and took it to mean that the NRA’s constitutional lawyering is next -level shit.

Kind of weird how the same violent, anti-gun actors immediately assume violence as opposed to just voting.

@dcexaminer We passed dishonest weeks ago. We’re way into corrupt media, trying to manipulate the electorate. Should be criminal behavior.

And at least one person thought the timing was just perfect for the media to distract from the fact that a terrorist’s father was front and center at a Clinton rally.
FYI: This “Second Amendment” Trump assassination story is being blown up by MSM to push Orlando Shooters dad at Hillary rally under the rug
