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.
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.
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.
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.
…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.”
