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.

    We have another problem coming up on May 31, 2016 as the U.N. unveils its first annual report on their global gun ban, known as ‘The U.N.’s Small Arms Treaty.” You know where the United States is going to fit in on this report. All the gun control nuts will instantly point to the United States and demand full treaty adoption. We also know where our ‘commandeer and cheat’ stands and as his last few months in office, will pull out a no holes barred push to implement some rash anti-gun ‘executive order’ if nothing more than to just jam up the works in days and months to come. We also know how some of our representatives are crossing the line and siding with the left. We need to write, call, e-mail or contact in some way, our senators and build a fire under their lazy, traitorous butts, to represent “we the people” and stop kissing up and spending all their time trying to get re-elected!

    Clinton shouldn’t even be running for President she should be arrested for treason against the united States like Oboma should be and to say it should be a voting issue is bullspit I might believe that we all got a vote so long as it was a unaffiliated third party counting the votes but the way things are now that corrupt bitch would manipulate it to her favor saying it passed whether she had the votes or not just because she has money and is in politics they act as if she is above the law and she still wants to lie about her emails saying that the FBI is only doing a security inquiry which is bullspit its an investigation! If she becomes president we will only have another oboma when he put a gun bill before congress and was voted down he acted like a little biotch in the school yard that didn’t want to lose so he went behind congress and the American people’s back and did it anyway by making it an unconstitutional executive order if our government truly carried about the people the would act as if they were normal citizens like it should be according to our laws equal to every man woman and child her and oboma need to be arrested and charged with treason and breaking the laws under our constitution an oath they both took promising to defend and protect and instead they would rather walk and spit on it Clinton and Obama need to be arrested convicted and spend the rest of their natural lives behind bars or lined up in front of a firing squad and shot just as if they were any other American that have committed such bold acts of treason not being praised and allowed to run for the highest office in the country.

    The truth is Hillary is an idiot! If you think for one second that our military and police ( yes I know quite a few and have asked them) are ever going to let the government take our guns or 2nd amendment you are totally mistaken. I am prior Navy, and carry also. My friends and family in the military and law enforcement are dead set against any type of seizure of our guns. So don’t worry about it. I believe it is just a scare tactic to actually increase gun sales, the same way they try to regulate the amount of ammo on the market. Someone or many someone’s are getting kickbacks. They can have my guns after they pry it from my cold dead hand.

    Let me add this please.
    I am not a radical. I believe in RESPONSIBLE gun ownership. I shoot regularly and hope I would be ready if or when I have to use it in defense of others or myself.
    Practicing does not necessarily mean one is good but it hopefully takes an edge off being unprepared.
    We are all students in any thing we do no matter our experience. Especially firearms.

    Going to buy another better carry gun and will be stocking up on ammo.
    I am not a fan of Hillary and through simple ignorance don’t really know what Mr. Trumps stand on our 2 A is.
    I do believe this….All enemies foreign and domestic means what it says. The gvts bs ( not the degree) on lawful and responsible is not because of caring for others….it is fear for themselves and their power bubble they live in.
    MAYBE Mr. Trump if elected will ease some tension but nonetheless…

    it’s puzzling that so many blogs celebrate how much gun rights supporters are in the majority, and winning almost uniformly, across the board. then we have articles like this that tell us we are doomed, near extinction, only a vote away from confiscation. anybody know for sure which it is?

      Both, George. There are millions of us and most are passionate about our rights. But those rights can be yanked away by a bureaucrat’s act if we aren’t careful.

    Her Highness has never made any secret of how she feels about the Second Amendment and lawful gun ownership. I’m not sure why anyone would expect anything different if she manages to get elected to the Presidency of this country. If she does get elected I predict that there will be another record breaking spike in the sales of firearms and ammunition.
