Trump Shows His Presidential Qualities, Yet Again

Thanks to Crooks and Liars, Donald Trump explaining (to a cheering crowd) how things like the Orlando massacre will be dealt with once he is President:

A gunfight in a darkened night club filled with three hundred innocent people.  By the way, anyone with the faintest knowledge of pistols knows how hard it is to hit a moving target with them in a calm situation, let alone in a free fire zone.  Something with a barrel that short just isn't that accurate. It isn't like it is in old cowboy movies, where the good guys would shoot the pistol out of the bad guys' hands, but Donald Trump doesn't seem to know that.

I've seen gun nuts all over the internet claiming that liberals have no right to say a word about guns because they couldn't tell the difference between an AR-15 and the Sig assault weapon that the Orlando killer used.  That's important, I guess, but understanding how many innocent bystanders would be killed before the "good guy with a gun" managed to hit the shooter, well that's just irrelevant.

And Inevitably:  It's a couple of hours later and we now hear this:  "Trump Says he Never Suggested Arming Club-goers"  No, never.  He would never suggest that.
