    Relying on the Second Amendment

    Those people that want all guns out of the hands of the average citizen may not have long to wait. While we currently have the second amendment to protect our rights, we must be ever vigilant. Consider that presidential candidate Trump has said: "allows for the termination of all rules ... even those found in the Constitution;" (Trump rebuked for call to terminate Constitution over 2022 election results, PBS News Hour Politics, Dec. 4, 2022), and “l have an Article 2, where I have the right to do whatever I want as President."

    If Trump wants to retain power past a second term, he will have a vested interest in ignoring the Constitution. Consider this: he could invent a crisis, ignore the Constitution and confiscate all guns.
