At this point, Democrats should be getting worried that he really isn't going to last until the election. The chances of him being replaced seem to have risen from 0 to 5%
How would that work, he would still appear on the ballot in lots of states

The states will change their laws if need be. Dont worry about it.

However, all of this would not be happening if Democrats don't stop talking about gun control. They're only putting themselves in trouble by making this a big issue, year after year. Yes, we need background checks, but stop demonizing gun owners and guns, and stop making it a major issue. Let the states handle these issues.

If those Democrats would just stop proposing policies we don't like, we wouldn't have to threaten to murder them!

Just a question: Four years ago the conventions were in kate August/early September. Did some states change their deadlines or were Obama and Romney put on the ballot prior to their official nomination?

I can't tell if this is trolling or not.

It's not. It's a reaction to what people say. Trump is obviously crazy, but when you have people talking about changing gun rules and legislation, what do you expect. You don't expect tensions to rise? You have a professor writing on the Rolling Stone magazine about repealing the Second Amendment and you don't expect some type of disagreement? The Second Amendment should not be repealed. This is not Europe, this is not Canada. We have to protect ourselves and if you want to be a disarmed person with no security, be my guest, but you have to have protection.

http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/why-its-time-to-repeal-the-second-amendment-right-bear-arms-20160613

President Obama wasted the beginning of his second term on gun control and failed. If he had spent time talking about background checks instead of demonizing gun owners, this issue of gun control would not be so heated up. The NRA is probably too powerful to defeat in this sense. Leave the Second Amendment alone. And no, I'm not a fan of Trump. Yes, he's tough, he's macho, has the swag, but he needs to tone it down, but Democrats need to leave the Second Amendment alone.

One of those people is an anonymous internet dork, and the other is the Republican Nominee for President.  See the difference?!

You know I'm no big fan of Trump, but I initially read "Second Amendment people" as the NRA.  That is, the usual NRA headlock on Washington could continue and block judges just as they've blocked all gun control legislation for the last 20 years.

Of course, Trump isn't a normal politician, and by having a long history of inflammatory statements, it makes the "I am advocating an armed overthrow of the government in case I lose" interpretation equally plausible.  And in the end, it doesn't matter what he meant, it matters how it's interpreted.  And it's the latter interpretation that seems to be sticking.

Are you... and idiot? One of these threads involves a dumb joke KYS and the other is the nominee of a major political party calling for his opponent to be assassinated.

If that's what you're saying, you're saying that in the wrong thread. This thread is about Donald Trump's calls to kill his political rival, not about the Democratic platform.

We have had four Presidents killed by assassins in this country's history. We have had several others who had attempts against there lives. We have had assassinations and assassination attempts against many presidential candidates over the years. Don't you dare suggest this is anything other than playing with fire, especially in a political climate as charged as it has been in decades. I am not feigning this outrage. I AM outraged because THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS.

This is a discussion about inciting murder upon a presidential candidate. Not about 2nd amendment policy. This is a thread about how a candidate nominated by a major party and with a large and angry following suggested to his followers that they murder a candidate for president of the United States.

Makes me understand how facism rose in democratic countries like Italy and Germany.  Just never thought we had so many lemmings like that in our own!

How presidential of him! Saying his opponent should be shot! This is the logical next step from calling her Satan. Maybe they should shoot RBG or Obama, too! After all, they're not that different than Clinton, and also anti-Second Amendment.
