Greetings my fellow Scotts man. In American politics there are no coinceadents only power grabs. Maybe I'm wrong about the reason for gun control and it may be a smoke screen for something like this to pass. Unfortunately many of my country's citizens are under the impression that our two party system stands in defiance of one another. In reality they work togethere behind closed doors to usurp the power from the people.

arguably the most powerful a president can be is the second term as he is not held accountable by anybody.
in essence he becomes a 4 year dictator if he chooses, doing whatever he pleases, since he basically has reached the summit and is not worried about pleasing anybody to get re-elected again.
the first term he is held in check, the second term he is not under the control of the people anymore.
With this and all the gun laws perhaps about to change, this is a worry for the people of the USA or should be. With the possibility of no guns and a president who can’t be removed, we need to really ask, what is the agenda of the USA
