A lot of Trump supporters are comparing Trump's statement that Clinton could be stopped by "Second Amendment people" to Hillary's statement during the 2008 campaign, saying she would not drop out of the race because "We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated..." They're also comparing it to Joe Biden's comment of the same year, saying that he wouldn't let Obama take his shotgun. Why weren't people as upset by Clinton's and Biden's comments as they are about Trump's?
Here's why. If Joe Biden had just spent a year ridiculing the handicapped, women in general, and the parents of dead soldiers, etc.; if he said that he would kill the families of terrorists, if he incited violence at his own campaign rallies, said buffoonish things about the use of nuclear weapons; if his daily utterances were largely psychopathic and he was condemned by much of the political world and many from his own party, then yes, people would have gotten worked up over Biden's comments. Biden was expressing his support for the Second Amendment in clumsy Biden-speak; he did not believe Obama was "coming for his guns."
Also, people were indeed upset and critical about Clinton's stupid comment, and rightfully so; maybe only half as upset, but Clinton - also dangerous and psychopathic - appears to be only half as dangerous to the survival of our republic as is Trump.
