An anonymous post from March 2017 on the far-right 4chan message board teased a conspiracy theory that would eventually make its way to the White House.

It is a problem for President Donald Trump that it's often impossible to tell what the hell he's talking about. This is not one of those signature Trump defects that can readily be spun into a secret strength or as a subtle bit of advanced dealcraft that only experts and initiates can appreciate. His mind is a television that changes channels every three seconds and where every channel has an infomercial on it; it cycles day and night without ever quite cohering into a signal. read more


Why do you liberals always want to take things nationwide? We are a nation of STATES, independent STATES. Keep your crazy where you are, we dont need any.

I agree. I miss the days when gun laws were decided locally, but then conservatives had to "take things nationwide" and go to the Supreme Court. Here are some examples of what things were like before the Federalist Society and activist rightwing judges coopted our Second Amendment.

"A federal criminal gun-control law does not violate the Second Amendment unless it impairs the state's ability to maintain a well-regulated militia. This is simply a straightforward reading of the text of the Second Amendment. This reading is also consistent with the overwhelming weight of authority from the other circuits." United States v. Haney, 264 F. 3d 1161, 1164"1166 (CA10 2001).

"It is well-established that the Second Amendment does not create an individual right. Since Miller, "the lower federal courts have uniformly held that the Second Amendment preserves a collective, rather than individual, right ... the Second Amendment protects only the use or possession of weapons that is reasonably related to a militia actively maintained and trained by the states." United States v. Napier, 233 F. 3d 394, 402"404 (CA6 2000).

"The link that the amendment draws between the ability "to keep and bear Arms" and "[a] well regulated Militia" suggests that the right protected is limited, one that inures not to the individual but to the people collectively, its reach extending so far as is necessary to protect their common interest in protection by a militia ... the Second Amendment establishes no right to possess a firearm apart from the role possession of the gun might play in maintaining a state militia." Gillespie v. Indianapolis, 185 F. 3d 693, 710"711 (CA7 1999).
