Clinton Promises to Attack Gun Owners on Her “Very First Day” in Office

By Dave Dolbee published on in General, News

The NRA-ILA is a top source for news about issue that could affect our Second Amendment rights. Not that it is much of a surprise, but the Democrat frontrunner has pledged to assault the Second Amendment on day one if elected. As usual, she claims she wants to lower gun violence… by stepping on the throats of gun manufacturers.

Hillary Clinton

In what has become as reliable as clockwork, with the passing of another week comes another Hillary Clinton attack on gun owners. This time, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination explained to supporters her intent to make an assault on gun rights and NRA one of her top priorities. A video of her comments has been distributed by Breitbart.com and can be viewed by clicking here.

Addressing an April 25 MSNBC “townhall” hosted by left-wing commentator Rachel Maddow, Clinton stated,

I really support everything President Obama said he would do through regulation on guns but we’re going to start the very first day and tackle the gun lobby to try to reduce the outrageous number of people who are dying from gun violence in our country.

Later, the candidate spoke of her party’s chances of taking control of the Senate, stating,

The Democrats have decided they will be led by Chuck Schumer and Chuck Schumer has been one of the most effective legislators in taking on the gun lobby. He and I worked together to get the Brady bill passed way back in my husband’s administration. So I think that it’s the kind of issue you have to start early, you have to work on it every day and we need to make it a voting issue.

A visibly agitated Clinton concluded her remarks on the subject by noting,

I’m going to keep talking about it, and we are going to make it clear that this has to be a voting issue. If you care about this issue, vote against people who give in to the NRA and the gun lobby all the time.

These comments make clear that gun owners and NRA would be in Clinton’s crosshairs from the moment she assumes office. And thanks to Clinton’s recent candor, gun owners don’t have to guess at the types of restrictions Clinton has in mind for them. Clinton has supported a ban on popular semi-automatic firearms and endorsed an Australian-style confiscation scheme for carrying out her vision. Clinton has expressed her vehement opposition to the Right-to-Carry. Most disturbing, under Clinton’s false interpretation of the Constitution, the Second Amendment does not protect and individual right to keep and bear arms and allows gun bans.

Somewhat of a political pragmatist, Barack Obama waited until he secured a second term before launching most of his efforts to restrict firearm ownership. Hillary Clinton is continually making clear that under her reign gun owners would receive no such reprieve.

This is why NRA members, along with their families and friends, must get involved in our efforts to secure a victory for gun owners this fall. At the bare minimum, gun owners must ensure that they and their loved ones are registered to vote. For those that can contribute more to our fight for freedom, NRA-ILA’s Grassroots Division can connect you with volunteer opportunities anywhere in the country, and NRA has made it easier than ever to participate in our efforts.

    I wouldn’t expect anything less from the likes of Killery Klinton. I continue to say that “if you call yourself a Democrat then you are pro death for helpless unborn humans, and want to defend abortion rights, but not support ones right to protect ourselves”.
    Hey Killery, kiss my rump😎.

    What’s new? A communist who wants crush our natural, God given right to self defense? A filthy, fascist who thinks that nobody should have guns but those knuckle dragging Secret Service agents that they treat like fresh poo poo? No surprise here. The stories of Hillary Clinton as the first lady of our country insisting that the Secret Service remain completely unseen as she walked the halls of the White House are legion. Her and her staff treating Secret Service agents like servants who should carry their luggage out to the care are also extant. Fortunately for all of us, many SS agents have a backbone and won’t carry their bags. They aren’t required to, and, when treated poorly, they don’t. I almost laugh out loud as I remember someone telling the story of the first time a SS agent simply ignored an order to take their bags out to the car. Poo poo fit from the Hildabeast anyone?

    She couldn’t even control Bill’s love gun. She’s pathetic :)

    We won’t have to worry about her much longer. Trump is already catching up and passing her, unless Bernie does it first.

    Aside from the legal and moral aspects,
    Not even counting the practicality of it (Gun Buyback)
    Even if they (Guns) were actually turned in,
    Even if we wanted to do it;
    WE CAN’T AFFORD IT !!

    She can preach all she wants about gun “problems”… Obama would have taken all the guns if he could, and so would she… The problem with that, of course, is there isn’t enough members of the Military and Law Enforcement that would ditch their oath for the agenda, and they know it…

    It will never happen in this country…

    As far as the crime rate, they can pretend to care about that, but they don’t… Where do the young thugs get their guns??? In the back alleys of the rat infested Liberal cities like Chicago for a little bit of crack or whatever…

    They have their mind zombie sheep, though… Try debating one of those jello heads about guns and the real truth…

    If I have any thing to do with it the only way a Clinton will see the Oval office again will be on the White House tour. A silverware guard should be posted though.
