Firearms manufacturers are using what Donald Trump calls "Second Amendment" people to sell military style high capacity pistols and military style assault weapons.
"Second Amendment people" believe in a variety of conspiracies to take their guns and arrest them.
“If you try to take our firearms we will kill you,” Vanderboegh wrote in 2013 when a “gun safety” advocate suggested that only police and the military should have firearms.
Without those "Second Amendment people" firearm sales would be down.
Republican Party candidates and elected officials benefit in two ways by courting people who believe in using firearms to achieve their political goals.
- They get the votes of people who believe guns can be used by civilians for political purposes.
- They get high approvals from the National Rifle Association and money pours into their campaigns from firearms manufacturers.

A few gun owners are creating arsenals of military style civilian weapons and military grade ammunition. Some gun owners are burying firearms and ammunition on their property.
Arms manufacturers are happy. The Republican Party is happy. But the rest of the world worries about political assassinations. And here's the kicker, Republican public officials could be victims of "Second Amendment people.'
