Clinton’s Armed Guards

The overreaction by the Left to this comment is pretty telling.

Donald Trump said that Hillary Clinton’s “bodyguards” should disarm themselves because Clinton supports gun control during a rally in Miami on Friday. He has made similar remarks in the past, but this time took it a little further.

“Take their guns away,” Trump said. “She doesn’t want guns. Let’s see what happens to her. Take their guns away. It would be very dangerous.”

Trump told the crowd of supporters that Clinton “wants to destroy your Second Amendment” and that “she goes around with armed bodyguards like you have never seen before.”

This is a pretty common retort that 2nd Amendment supporters have been giving to years. It speaks to the hypocrisy of rich and powerful liberals who want to restrict gun rights while enjoying the protection of armed security. Not all of us can afford, or are provided by the taxpayers, armed security. We have to fend for ourselves. It is not a statement intended to incite violence. It is a statement that we should all be able to keep and bear arms for our personal protection even if we can’t afford to pay someone else to do it.

But it appears that either the lefties haven’t heard this before, which would be indicative of them living in a bubble that doesn’t include 2nd Amendment supporters, or their outrage is falsely amplified for political purposes.
