Your administration is waging a direct attack against the U.S. Constitution and its law-abiding citizens. I am against any executive order or decision that you might have in store for America, and I am telling you that as a law-abiding citizen to stop this erosion of America.

Let me ask you this, if you are successful at taking our guns away, will that mean that you and your family won’t need the Secret Service for your protection anymore? If the answer is no, why would you take the ability for me to protect my family away?
