Skip to comments.Why US liberals are now buying guns too
Posted on 12/20/2016 2:08:33 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Gun ownership has traditionally been associated with the right wing in America but the election of Donald Trump has prompted some left-wingers to join gun clubs - and even start preparing for the collapse of society.
"I really didn't expect to be thinking about purchasing a gun. It was something that my father did and I rolled my eyes at him."
Clara, a 28-year-old nursing student, grew up in the Mid-West, where "the folks that had guns were seen as hicks" or were just "culturally different", she says.
But since the election of Donald Trump in November she has started going to a gun range for the first time and is shopping around for a semi-automatic pistol.
"It's been seeing the way that Trump's election has mobilised a lot of the far right and given them hope," she says, citing a rise in reports of hate crimes and neo-Nazi activity.
As a transgender woman, she does not fear for her personal safety in the Californian city where she now lives but she says she knows people in rural areas "who woke up and found a bunch of swastikas and words like 'faggot' and 'trannie' scrawled all over their building".
She foresees a wide-ranging struggle between the Trump administration and the left over issues such as immigration and racial politics....

In other words they foresee the day when they go to open warfare against us. Whatever plans they’re making - they ain’t enough.
WTF do these idiots think will happen?
Trump will re-enslave black people?
Open up concentration camps?
Shoot illegal aliens?
Throw gays off buildings?
Anyone want to bet that "Clara, a 28-year-old nursing student" was actually the one who scrawled those things all over her friends' building?
Just exactly how did the BBC find "Clara" anyway? Did "she" reach out to them with her "story" so that the BBC could print up a batch of fake news with which to tar and feather those supposed Trump voter extremists? Likely indeed.
So, the idiots have themselves convinced that they lost the election because they didn’t own enough guns?
Maks hella more sense than what that one idiot had to say about being askert of righties because Trump gave us confidence.
Also notice that “Clara” is a actually dude.
Problem for the Left basing their reality on a lie like this is eventually the truth wins out.
Psycho lunatic trash animal filth. Yeah, Trump is gonna kill you all. Imagine a brain so tiny that it cannot conceive, ever, of losing an election.
yeah LOL. It would be New Yorkers and Californians who have never held a gun or went a few times to a range, like me. Against guys who’ve been shooting since they were four LOL
Actually more likely is “Clara” is a figment manufactured by Brian Wheeler at the BBC to create a fake gloss of credibility to his absurd fake news story.
“55% of Republicans reported owning guns......”
40% were smart enough to keep their mouths shut!
Yes - all that and much much more. At least if you take them at their word. LOL
Facebook won’t let me post this article. You try it.
>> she says she knows people in rural areas “who woke up and found a bunch of swastikas and words like ‘faggot’ and ‘trannie’ scrawled all over their building”.
Show me the sworn police report. Otherwise, almost certainly #fakenews, just like the many fake so-called hate crimes documented here:
And even if there is a police report, it still may be #fakenews. Plenty of the cases documented above started out with a police report on an incident that was later proven to not have happened.
“”It’s been seeing the way that Trump’s election has mobilised a lot of the far right and given them hope,” she says, citing a rise in reports of hate crimes and neo-Nazi activity. “
Dis be der fake news.......
