Some Republicans say this should not be interpreted as implying incitement to assassination by those who defend the right to bear arms in the USA:

Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the second amendment. If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the second amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know. But I’ll tell you what, that will be a horrible day.

Donald Trump said it. He says he was simply calling on the NRA to take political action. I think few believe him. I am amongst them: I think this was meant as a physical threat.

As a result the fragile relationship between politics and democracy continues to be at risk.

And I have to ask as a consequence whether we are in the dying days of what we have thought of as freedom?
