Obama in '08: If Our Opponents Bring Knife to a Fight, 'We Bring a Gun'
After the media jumped on Donald Trump yesterday for his statement about "Second Amendment people" stopping Hillary Clinton, some are pointing out past statements by Democrats.
Trump said at a rally in North Carolina: If [Hillary Clinton] gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although, the Second Amendment people, maybe there is."
Many criticized him appearing to suggest violence against Clinton, but he later explained that he was trying to say that Second Amendment supporters would vote against Clinton.
Greta Van Susteren highlighted a comment that then-Senator Barack Obama made in 2008 about doing things the "Chicago Way."

Also in 2008, Clinton made headlines by bringing up the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy when she was asked why she had not ended her bid for the White House against Obama.
Clinton took heat for the comment at the time, with critics calling her out for raising the possibility that someone could try to harm Obama.
