In what can only be described as the ravings of a lying lunatic, Hillary Clinton was captured in an audio recording at a New York campaign fundraiser blasting the Second Amendment, the National Rifle Association and the Supreme Court over the Second Amendment.
During her rant she claims that she doesn’t believe the NRA represents most gun owners and the majority of Americans. Consider the NRA has claims 5 million members and many tens of millions who support the organization to some extent. While that is not the majority of members, there are many things that gun owners agree with the NRA on, so I have no idea where Clinton is coming up with this claim.
However, Clinton went on to expound that she would take on the NRA like her husband Bill.
“I was proud when my husband took [the National Rifle Association] on, and we were able to ban assault weapons, but he had to put a sunset on so 10 years later. Of course [President George W.] Bush wouldn’t agree to reinstate them,” said Clinton.
Clinton’s comments came just a week prior to people being murdered in cold blood, who were disarmed by her stupid husband’s policies of “gun free zones.” I wish someone would ask her about that little piece of pretended legislation.
“I’m going to speak out, I’m going to do everything I can to rally people against this pernicious, corrupting influence of the NRA and we’re going to do whatever we can,” she added.
She claimed that the NRA has “so intimidated elected members of Congress and other legislative bodies that these people are passing the most absurd laws.”
“The idea that you can have an open carry permit with an AK-47 over your shoulder walking up and down the aisles of a supermarket is just despicable,” she said.
Why is that absurd? Why can’t people do that? Contrary to popular opinion and Clinton’s, the right to keep and bear arms applies to that, as well as carrying a handgun. Personally, I wouldn’t walk into the store with an AK on my back, because it would be rather bulky, but I would not infringe on a law-abiding citizen doing it.
I could point out that throughout the past century the NRA also helped to erode the rights of gun owners too, which is why I’m glad there are other pro-gun organizations stepping up to help keep them in check to preserve the God-given right to keep and bear arms.
She then went even broader in her attack on the Constitution.
“We’ve got to go after this,” Clinton continued. “And here again, the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.”
The specific thing she was speaking of regarding the Supreme Court is the case of District of Columbia v. Heller. That was the famous case that found a handgun ban in DC was unconstitutional.
Clinton, who has absolutely no problem having men with handguns, as well as semi-auto and fully-auto rifles protect her, does not want the same rights for Americans that are protected under the Second Amendment. She wants to infringe on those rights and she is telling the American people she that is what she wants to do as president.
Her socialist political opponent Bernie Sanders is pretty pitiful when it comes to the rights of gun owners as well and doesn’t follow the Constitution in his thinking. In July, he told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “People in Vermont have a greater right to carry guns than people in Chicago or Los Angeles.” Animal Farm, anyone?
As for the NRA, Executive Director of the pro-gun’s legislative division said, “Hillary Clinton just doesn’t get it. The NRA’s strength lies in our five million members and the tens of millions of voters who support the Second Amendment. A majority of Americans support this freedom, and the Supreme Court was absolutely right to hold that the Second Amendment guarantees the fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms.”
Anyone seeking to limit rights protected under the Second Amendment should not be considered for the office of the President of the united States.
