Hillary On 2nd Amendment Supporters “Minority Hold VIEWPOINT That TERRORIZES The Majority” [Video]

June 18, 2014 at 8:12 am

According to Hillary Clinton gun owning 2nd amendment supporters are –terrorists guilty of –thought crimes. These “guys“, not so much. And they are the only “minority” (as if) group of Americans she is comfortable assaulting.

“I’m well aware that this is a hot political subject. And again, I will speak out no matter what role I find myself in But I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation. We cannot let a minority of people – and it’s, that’s what it is, it is a minority of people – hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.

– Hillary Clinton CNN Televised Town Hall With Christiane Amanpour- Hillary Clinton’s Hard Choices June 17, 2014

Hillary’s statement brings up a terrifying question: What steps would President Hillary Clinton take to prevent Americans from holding a “viewpoint?

The full exchange:

GAIL SANTA MARIA, PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER: Hi.

CLINTON: Hi.

SANTA MARIA: My name is Gail Santa Maria. I’m from Maryland. I’m a teacher.

My question is about guns. I’m very concerned about the proliferation of guns in America, especially as it pertains to school shootings.

CLINTON: Right.

SANTA MARIA: Do you think that that reinstating the ban on assault weapons and banning high capacity magazines would do any good?

CLINTON: Yes, I do. I do.

SANTA MARIA: Good.

CLINTON: You know, my –

(APPLAUSE) CLINTON: First of all, I think as a teacher or really any parent, what’s been happening with these school shootings should cause everybody to just think hard. We make hard choices and we balance competing values all the time. And I was disappointed that the Congress did not pass universal background checks after the horrors of the shootings at Sandy Hook and now we’ve had more –

SANTA MARIA: Seventy-four more.

For a woman in charge of educating children Gail sure has trouble keeping up, because that figure has been proven false in a CNN report a full 6 days before the CNN televised event on which she parroted Bloomberg’s Everytown lie. It has also been debunked by Politifact.
Annnnnnd…

It certainly seems like suicides and gang violence should be delineated from “school shootings” (in which the “mass” is pretty much implied) as separate problems, no? Unless, of course, your real goal is to falsely portray an America in which wildly violent, deadly, and indiscriminate gun violence is increasing — rather than the actual trend in which it has for two decades been [CNN: sharply decreasing .]

Back to gun grabbing fascist Hillary:

CLINTON: — in the time since.

And I don’t think any parent, any person should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone, for whatever reasons — psychological, emotional, political, ideological, whatever it means — could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers.

I’m well aware that this is a hot political subject. And again, I will speak out no matter what role I find myself in. But I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation. 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. And I have — you are about the fifth person in the last weeks, parents and another teacher, just interested citizens, who have said something similar to me.

So, my view is that yes, we need to thrash this out in the political realm. But the vast majority of Americans, even law abiding gun owners, people –

SANTA MARIA: Who want background checks that work.

CLINTON: — who want background checks that work, information that is shared immediately, and an awareness that, you know, we’re going to have to do a better job protecting the vast majority of our citizens, …

Hey Hill, I’m pretty sure these guys bypass background checks.

hey liberals 2

…including our children, from that very, very, very small group that is unfortunately prone to violence and now with automatic weapons can wreak so much more violence than they ever could have before.

Hillary does not know the difference between fully automatic and semi automatic weapons. So let’s trust her with our gun rights. Heh.

The lefts usage of “assault weapons” is pardon the pun –a “trigger word”.

Officer Leroy Pyle debunks myths about semi-autos. He uses demonstrations with live firearms and congressional testimony by DEA, ATF and FBI agents to show what the truth really is.

Fully automatic rifles are “prohibited for purchase in the US except by police and law enforcement.”

Columbine Survivor’s Open Letter To Obama Rejecting Gun Control: “Whose Side Are You On?”

June 13, 2014 at 7:17 am

gun_control_expertsThis is dated February 2013, but as you all are well aware the topic remains highly relevant to this day.

Via The Blaze:

Columbine survivor Evan Todd released an open letter to President Barack Obama on Wednesday in which he offers a point-by-point analysis of proposed firearms control initiatives, dismissing them as ineffective and dangerous to Americans’ rights.

He recently outlined why he fervently disagrees with the gun control policies that have been proposed in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. TheBlaze interviewed Todd earlier this week and subsequently detailed how his experience being shot back in 1999 has shaped his views on the issue.

Mr. President,

As a student who was shot and wounded during the Columbine massacre, I have a few thoughts on the current gun debate. In regards to your gun control initiatives:

Universal Background Checks

First, a universal background check will have many devastating effects. It will arguably have the opposite impact of what you propose. If adopted, criminals will know that they can not pass a background check legally, so they will resort to other avenues. With the conditions being set by this initiative, it will create a large black market for weapons and will support more criminal activity and funnel additional money into the hands of thugs, criminals, and people who will do harm to American citizens.

Second, universal background checks will create a huge bureaucracy that will cost an enormous amount of tax payers dollars and will straddle us with more debt. We cannot afford it now, let alone create another function of government that will have a huge monthly bill attached to it.

Third, is a universal background check system possible without universal gun registration? If so, please define it for us. Universal registration can easily be used for universal confiscation. I am not at all implying that you, sir, would try such a measure, but we do need to think about our actions through the lens of time.

It is not impossible to think that a tyrant, to the likes of Mao, Castro, Che, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, and others, could possibly rise to power in America. It could be five, ten, twenty, or one hundred years from now — but future generations have the natural right to protect themselves from tyrannical government just as much as we currently do. It is safe to assume that this liberty that our forefathers secured has been a thorn in the side of would-be tyrants ever since the Second Amendment was adopted.

Ban on Military-Style Assault Weapons

The evidence is very clear pertaining to the inadequacies of the assault weapons ban. It had little to no effect when it was in place from 1994 until 2004. It was during this time that I personally witnessed two fellow students murder twelve of my classmates and one teacher. The assault weapons ban did not deter these two murderers, nor did the other thirty-something laws that they broke.

Gun ownership is at an all time high. And although tragedies like Columbine and Newtown are exploited by ideologues and special-interest lobbying groups, crime is at an all time low. The people have spoken. Gun store shelves have been emptied. Gun shows are breaking attendance records. Gun manufacturers are sold out and back ordered. Shortages on ammo and firearms are countrywide. The American people have spoken and are telling you that our Second Amendment shall not be infringed.

10-Round Limit for Magazines

Virginia Tech was the site of the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history. Seung-Hui Cho used two of the smallest caliber hand guns manufactured and a handful of ten round magazines. There are no substantial facts that prove that limited magazines would make any difference at all.
Second, this is just another law that endangers law-abiding citizens. I’ve heard you ask, “why does someone need 30 bullets to kill a deer?”

Let me ask you this: Why would you prefer criminals to have the ability to out-gun law-abiding citizens? Under this policy, criminals will still have their 30-round magazines, but the average American will not. Whose side are you on?

Lastly, when did they government get into the business of regulating “needs?” This is yet another example of government overreaching and straying from its intended purpose.

Selling to Criminals

Mr. President, these are your words: “And finally, Congress needs to help, rather than hinder, law enforcement as it does its job. We should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. And we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this.”

Why don’t we start with Eric Holder and thoroughly investigate the Fast and Furious program?

Furthermore, the vast majority of these mass murderers bought their weapons legally and jumped through all the hoops —  because they were determined to murder. Adding more hoops and red tape will not stop these types of people. It doesn’t now — so what makes you think it will in the future? Criminals who cannot buy guns legally just resort to the black market.

Criminals and murderers will always find a way.

Critical Examination

Mr. President, in theory, your initiatives and proposals sound warm and fuzzy — but in reality they are far from what we need. Your initiatives seem to punish law-abiding American citizens and enable the murderers, thugs, and other lowlifes who wish to do harm to others.

Let me be clear: These ideas are the worst possible initiatives if you seriously care about saving lives and also upholding your oath of office. There is no dictate, law, or regulation that will stop bad things from happening — and you know that. Yet you continue to push the rhetoric. Why?

You said, “If we can save just one person it is worth it.” Well here are a few ideas that will save more that one individual:

First, forget all of your current initiatives and 23 purposed executive orders. They will do nothing more than impede law-abiding citizens and breach the intent of the Constitution. Each initiative steals freedom, grants more power to an already-overreaching government, and empowers and enables criminals to run amok.

Second, press Congress to repeal the “Gun Free Zone Act.” Don’t allow America’s teachers and students to be endangered one-day more. These parents and teachers have the natural right to defend themselves and not be looked at as criminals. There is no reason teachers must disarm themselves to perform their jobs. There is also no reason a parent or volunteer should be disarmed when they cross the school line.

This is your chance to correct history and restore liberty. This simple act of restoring freedom will deter would-be murderers and for those who try, they will be met with resistance.

Mr. President, do the right thing, restore freedom, and save lives. Show the American people that you stand with them and not with thugs and criminals.

Respectfully,

Severely Concerned Citizen, Evan M. Todd

 

Good Guy With A Gun Kills Thug Holding Gun To His Teen Daughters Head

June 11, 2014 at 9:21 am

hey liberals 2
One less violent thug roaming the streets –GOOD!

SOUTH ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – One suspect is dead and another is in critical condition after allegedly holding a gun to a teen’s head. Police are not saying if they believe this crime was random or targeted. The man who pulled the trigger tells FOX 2 he does not live here with his daughter and her mom and he says he doesn’t know why the two men came to the door.

Police say it began with two men approaching a seventeen year old girl in the street, taking her at gunpoint, and forcing her into her home on Newport near Neosho in the Bevo Mill neighborhood. The girl’s father shot and killed one suspect and injured the other.

It was about 11pm Monday when a 17 year old girl who lives in the home was getting something from her car. Two men, both with guns, grabbed her. The began to push her back into the home with a gun to her head. Her father, who says he was visiting the girl and her mother, saw the gunmen and pulled his own weapon. He says he had no choice but to fire.

“He was holding her hostage. She was a human shield. So I did what I had to do.”

Asked how he had the confidence to pull the trigger when the man was holding his daughter that way, he said, “It wasn’t like that. It just happened. I didn’t have no choice. He had my daughter so I did what I had to do.”
……
The man he shot and killed was Terrell Johnson, 31, of St. Louis. The second suspect, who the father says was wearing a mask, is Cortez McClinton, 33, also of St. Louis.
……
The two suspects were not strangers to police. Terrell Johnson, the dead man, has served time in the Missouri prison system for first degree robbery. He had been given a sixteen year sentence.

Cortez McClinton was charged with first degree murder in the 2010 killing of Brian Reed. Reed was found dead in his car on Minnesota Street in South St. Louis. But in 2012, the circuit attorney’s office says those charges had to be dropped because witnesses wouldn’t cooperate. They ask anyone with any information about that case to contact Crimestoppers at 866-371-TIPS.

More from CBS St Louis:
The mother got off a shot of her own. She missed, but at least she tried.

Her mother also retrieved a firearm and fired one round at the suspects, not striking them.

The first suspect, identified as 31-year-old Terrell Johnson, of the 4500 block of Natural Bridge, collapsed on the living room floor and was pronounced dead on the scene.

Police say McClinton then fled the scene on foot, entered Johnson’s vehicle and contacted his brother, who took him to a hospital.

McClinton was treated for gunshot wounds to the chest and both thighs and listed in critical but stable condition.

None of the victims were injured.

The investigation continues, but police say at this point, no charges are being sought against the homeowners.

A judge ordered McClinton be held on a $1,000,000 cash-only bond.

McClinton’s murder charge stems from the death of his accomplice. A spokesman for the circuit attorney’s office tells KMOX News that if someone dies during the commission of a felony—even a suspect—murder charges can be filed. The charge is also known as felony murder.

Police report:

Incident: Homicide

Location: 4600 block of Newport

Date/Time: 6/09/14 @ 23:00

Victim #1: 34-year old black male

Victim #2: 17-year old black female

Victim #3: 34-year old white female

Victim #4: 5-year old black male

Suspect #1: Terrell Johnson, 31-year old black male of the 4500 block of Natural
Bridge (deceased)

Suspect #2: 33-year old black male (critical/stable)

Victim #2 reported she was outside her residence retrieving property from a vehicle when the suspects approached her, armed with guns, and demanded she return to her residence with them. The suspects began to walk Victim #2 back into her residence. Victim #1, who is the father of Victim #2, observed the suspects with his daughter, retrieved his firearm and fired several shots at the suspects, striking both of them as they entered his residence. Victim #3, who is the mother of Victim #2, also retrieved a firearm and fired one round at the suspects, not striking them. Suspect #1 collapsed on the living room floor and was pronounced deceased on the scene. Suspect #2 fled the scene on foot, entered Suspect #1′s vehicle and contacted his brother, who conveyed him to a hospital. Suspect #2 was treated for gunshot wounds to the chest and both thighs and listed in critical/stable condition. At large warrants will be sought for Suspect #2. None of the victims were injured. The investigation is ongoing.

Thank God the father had a gun and knew how to use it.

18 Year Old Eagle Scout Suspended For “Unsafe” Gun T-Shirt Fights Suspension & Wins!

May 15, 2014 at 8:16 am

chris borg gun tshirt hinsdale central illinois
T-shirts don’t kill people, people kill people.
ICYMI the backstory:

(Chicago Tribune) –A Hinsdale Central High School student is challenging a suspension he said he received for wearing to school a T-shirt that depicts an AK-47.

Senior Chris Borg, 18, of Hinsdale, appeared before the Hinsdale Township High School District 86 school board Monday to make the request that the suspension he received on May 6 be removed from his record.

Borg told the board that he wore a T-shirt with the outline of an AK-47 depicted on the back, a url for the website of a Kentucky armory club that supports gun rights and the words “TeamAK” on it. He said the shirt did not identify the gun as an AK-47 in writing.

Borg said he was stopped for wearing it by hall monitors. He said the dean of students, Kimberly Dever, offered him the chance to turn the shirt inside out, wear another shirt or be suspended for the day.

“I decided to go home for the day because I felt it was a infringement of my First Amendment right to freedom of expression,” Borg told the board.

Supt. Bruce Law said the T-shirt is a violation of the dress code outlined in the school’s handbook.

The handbook states that students are subject to disciplinary action when they wear clothing that “is deemed vulgar, inappropriate, unsafe or disruptive to the educational process (e.g., advertising/display of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, sexual innuendo).

Borg said he was told the T-shirt was unsafe and disruptive. [...]

VICTORY:

(Chicago Tribune) –The district will remove the suspension from the record of Chris Borg, 18, a senior who wore a T-shirt depicting an AK-47 to Hinsdale Central High School on May 6, the student said. The shirt also had the words “AKteam” printed on it and the URL for a Kentucky gun club that supports gun rights.
……
“I’m ecstatic,” Borg said of the decision. “I’m happy. I wasn’t trying to push buttons or be provocative. I was just trying to assert my First Amendment rights.”

Supt. Bruce Law said Wednesday the district has “changed its mind about the rectitude” of the suspension that was issued because it was determined that the image of the gun was unsafe and disruptive to the educational process and was not in keeping with the school’s dress code.
……
In the future, Law said the district will try to distinguish between gun-related images that are lawful and do not promote violence and ones that promote violence or illegal activity.

Other images of guns that would be acceptable on clothing would be for branches of the armed services, Law said.

“A lawful activity like a gun club or a military institution is different than an unlawful activity that promotes violence,” Law said. [...]

Wow, logic, common sense and reason –color me shocked.

VIDEO: Obama DOJ AG Holder Wants Gun Owners To Wear Tracking Bracelets

April 8, 2014 at 10:10 am

2nd amendment gun permit
And who be in charge of the compulsory ‘gun tracking bracelets’? The anti-2nd amendment Obama regime…that’s who. Making the decision makers in control of who they deem fit to be armed. Those who control the technology controlling the guns will have the ability to control the guns?? An off switch with the capability to disarm legal gun owners at any given moment?? Making it for all intents and purposes an underhanded end run around the constitution nullifying the 2nd amendment.
A chilling thought is it not?

YouTube Preview Image

“I think that one of the things that we learned when we were trying to get passed those common sense reforms last year, Vice President Biden and I had a meeting with a group of technology people and we talked about how guns can be made more safe.”

“By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or something that you might wear, how guns can be used only by the person who is lawfully in possession of the weapon.”

“It’s those kinds of things that I think we want to try to explore so that we can make sure that people have the ability to enjoy their Second Amendment rights, but at the same time decreasing the misuse of weapons that lead to the kinds of things that we see on a daily basis.”

Infowars correspondent Dan Bidondi approached Miller and other lawmakers at the Rhode Island State House where a slew of anti-second amendment legislation was set to be heard later that evening.

The second amendment shall not be infringed, you people need to understand that,” Bidondi told Miller.

Go fuck yourself,” Miller responded as he smiled, before one of his staffers repeated the insult.

According to another individual who was with Bidondi, Miller repeated the “go fuck yourself” jibe a further two times after he was told “the majority is outside”. Miller had previously asserted that the majority was inside when speaking to a pro-gun control audience.

Miller is staunchly pro-gun control, having backed numerous pieces of legislation in Rhode Island that, according to the NRA, “would turn law-abiding gun owners into criminals.”….

2nd amendment gun permitWith the current situation in Connecticut, where state lawmakers have legislated gun registration, tens of thousands have determined not to register their weapons and the state has threatened to confiscate them and arrest individuals if they do not register or turn them in, I thought a word from patriot John S. Cinque was in order. His words echo the founding fathers and Mike Vanderboegh of Connecticut’s Sipsey Street Irregulars, and were a foreshadowing of what is taking place now.

Mr. Cinque appeared in North Haven, Connecticut on April 22, 2013 and asked if there was anything in the bill that was signed into law that would have prevented the Sandy Hook shooting.

Don’t Let Anyone Tell You “No One’s Coming To Take Your Guns” Because It’s Happening

EDIT: For some odd reason, the Gun Owners Of America Facebook post is no longer available. I apologize for any inconvenience.

EDIT 2: I found the Connecticut assault (roll eyes) weapon letter on AmmoLand.com

Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Two hundred and fourteen Connecticut residents who tried to comply with the new state laws but were late sending in their state designated “Assault Weapon” and “High Capacity Magazine” registration paperwork are now getting letters from CT State Police (CSP) stating they need to destroy, turn in, sell or remove their personal property from Connecticut or face the law.

Those who fail to do so could face serious criminal penalties. Once people realize they can’t keep the guns and magazines, they’re going to get rid of them, Michael P. Lawlor, the undersecretary for criminal justice policy and planning to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, says.

The threat of enforcement by CSP is confiscation plain and simple. When the state decides your personal property is no longer legal and gives you no options to relive you of your property without compensation, that is the definition of confiscation and a violation of one’s Second and Forth Amendment rights.
