Hillary Clinton is a big fan of a harsh global gun ban as if the terrorists of the world will comply – just like criminals will comply with suffocating gun control in the United States. Last year, Hillary said this about guns: “We’ve got to rein in what has become an almost article of faith that anybody can have a gun anywhere, anytime,” she said. “And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.”
There is no one proposing that anyone can have a gun anywhere anytime but this is a straw man often used by the gun grabbers.
You might remember Hillary Clinton’s comments about the Second Amendment during a CNN town hall in June 2014 while she was on her book tour.
She was disappointed that Congress did not pass gun control legislation following the Sandy Hook shooting by an insane youth in December 2012.
“I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation,” said the aspiring presidential candidate at the time. “We cannot let a minority of people—and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people—hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.”
It was classic Hillary. She portrayed disagreements as terrorism and anyone disagreeing with her as a terrorist.
It’s an Alinsky tactic. She is the queen of dishonest debate and a master at ridicule.
At the town hall, she expressed concern about the danger of automatic weapons, but automatic weapons are already banned by law.
She said she wants “background checks that work” and stated that people who have “psychological, emotional, political, ideological, whatever” reason should not be able to shoot someone. Does that mean all those people will be under the watchful eye of the government? Isn’t that everyone?
She apparently sees the government controlling every aspect of sale, resale, ownership, and use of guns. There is no other way that she would be able to control anyone with a perceived reason to shoot. It would involve the thought police and the ceding of our inalienable rights to Big Brother.
You have to listen to this video with Ted Cruz responding to this exact issue.
