“Take the guns first, go through due process second,” -Donald Trump

The President of the United States spoke those words in response to Vice President, Mike Pence.

“Allow due process so no one’s rights are trampled, but the ability to go to court, obtain an order and then collect not only the firearms but any weapons,” Pence said.

“Or, Mike, take the firearms first, and then go to court,” Trump responded.

The President’s bipartisan meeting on gun control revealed several opinions the President holds that should cause concern.

The most troubling is the outright denial of due process with the “promise” that it will be taken care of second. Powers and procedures like that have never been abused in our history though, at least our recent history. Talk to any older American of Japanese heritage, they will tell you.

The President is known for his comments and it may just be talk… it may not.

We will see what actually hits the legislative forms and gains support.
