Hillary: D.C. Just Wanted To Protect Toddlers From Guns With Their Super Restrictive Laws

The Blaze’s Christian Datoc noticed this bit from the debate, calling it “nonsensical

Hillary Clinton flip-flopped her way through answering a question on gun control during Wednesday night’s third and final presidential debate.

Clinton first told moderator Chris Wallace that while she is a strong believer in the Second Amendment, she also believes “there can be, and there must be reasonable regulation.”

“I want people who shouldn’t have guns not to be able to threaten you, kill you or members of your family,” she continued. “When I think about what we need to do, we have 33,000 people a year who die from guns. I think we need comprehensive background checks, we need to close the online loophole, close the gun show loophole.”

Any smart thinking person understands the fallacy of the 33,000 number. We already have pretty comprehensive background checks. The gun show loophole is a canard.

“There are other matters that I think are sensible that are the kind of reforms that would make a difference that are not in any way conflicting with the Second Amendment,” Clinton added. “You mentioned the [District of Columbia V.] Heller decision, and what I was saying that you referenced, Chris, was that I disagreed with the way the court applied the Second Amendment in that case.”

“What the District of Columbia was trying to do was protect toddlers from guns,” she elaborated. “They wanted people with guns to safely store them, and the court didn’t accept that reasonable regulation, but they’ve accepted many other, and I see no conflict between saving people’s lives and defending the Second Amendment.”

Got that? D.C. enacted draconian laws that heavily restricted law abiding citizens from purchasing guns to save toddlers, per a woman who has dozens of armed security personnel hanging around at all time, some carrying, at times, weapons that are illegal for most citizens to purchase and carry.

Like most Democrats, Hillary will spin her way from her real opinion on guns, which is to remove them from the hands of law abiding citizens. Don’t forget, she thought that Australian style gun control, ie, banning most and confiscation, is an idea worth looking into. She should lead the way, and disarm her protection.
