A Democratic representative suggested at a town hall meeting that took place on March 12 that the citizens should take up arms against President Trump if he continues to deter gun arguments with the Second Amendment.
According to The Daily Caller, representative Thomas Suozzi replied to an attendee’s question in a video that surfaced recently, in which they asked the congressman what the people are to do when the president fails to “execute a mandate.”
“It’s really a matter of putting public pressure on the president,” Suozzi answered. “This is where the Second Amendment comes in, quite frankly, because you know, what if the president was to ignore the courts? What would you do? What would we do?”
There are some truths to Suozzi’s statement. Unmistakably, there are two sides to what he is saying; being that he’s a Democrat, there is a considerable chance that he is against the president. However, if we take that out of the equation, we get something a little more interesting, because what if the president was a Democrat?
Suozzi did mention the reasons that could arouse problems with the American people. The rhetorical questions from the congressman are valid questions because there are going to be some evil people who try and eventually succeed in getting into political office. This is where we can agree.
Where we disagree is another story. While there are possible concerns, you would have with a controversial president like Obama, who ignored the state’s right to choose their own laws on gay marriage and instead had the Supreme Court decide, Trump brings about none of the concerns mentioned by Suozzi. If this is Suozzi’s argument, he needs to find a president who has actually done something unlawful, like Trump’s predecessor, Obama.
