Hillary Clinton on Gun Control: We Have to “Reign In” American Support for Second Amendment Rights
Democrats are salivating at the thought of a Hillary Clinton presidency. And why shouldn’t they? It would be a continuation of Barack Obama’s presidency, right down to the constant attacks on our constitutional rights.
Hillary Clinton on Tuesday offered her most detailed comments on domestic policy in months, calling for tighter gun restrictions while also going to bat for Obamacare and warning that rising economic inequality is contributing to “social collapse.”
… “We have to rein in what has become [an] almost article of faith, that anybody can own a gun anywhere, anytime. And I don’t believe that,” she said.
Clinton, who argued it was possible to hold her position and still support the right to gun ownership, warned that unfettered access to guns could have dangerous consequences.
She painted a dark picture, warning that, “At the rate we’re going, we’re going to have so many people with guns everywhere, fully licensed, fully validated, in settings where [one] could be in a movie theater, and they don’t like someone chewing gum loudly or talking on their cell phone and decide they have the perfect right to defend themselves against the gum chewer or cell phone user by shooting.”
Because keeping guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens has worked out so well in places like Washington, D.C. and Chicago, right? But of course, people like Hillary Clinton aren’t actually worried about the safety of Americans. They’re worried about keeping us controlled, defenseless, and completely reliant on the state.
