I am afraid that Trump’s “rigged election” comments in the week of August 14th and his “deputizing” of volunteers means they will carry guns to the polling places, and try to “enforce” something…..

This is a sure recipe for outright bloodshed.  No if, and, or buts about it.  People will die.  Many of Trump’s supporters are first-time or first time in a very-long-time voters.  They may be unfamiliar with electronic voting machines, the titles of the people there: “Precinct Judges”, the Democratic Party official “challenger”—they will feel intimidated and confused at the new polling places—so for them the only “right” answer will be a little gun play.  The flashing of concealed weapons will be the “White Man’s revenge on those minorities trying to vote.”  It will make them feel important and empowered to enforce their “Rights.”   Hell, Republican Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist got his position from Nixon by yelling at Minority voters that he would deport them in Arizona (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Rehnquist).  So a little flashing of guns by a redneck wouldn’t be that out of the ordinary for the Republican Party and the majority of supporters for Trump.

Trump would have said “take your guns to protect your right to vote” but the U.S. Secret Service has warned him since his implications of assassinating Hillary Clinton.

Also during this time period was Trump’s Assault on the media.  Imagine if he was president would he try to “cancel” the First Amendment?  Free Speech is an extreme burden to an extremist trying to win power over everything.
