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.

    If Hitler Clinton has it her way there will definitely be lots of blood shed. Heck I geuss she should go ahead and outlaw cars and trucks and forks and spoons and soda pop and potato chips and she better not forget to outlaw water and swimming pools etc. I now that where I live if people show up to take our weapons there will definitely be blood shed and I bet its like my little town all across the U.S.

    That’s right Hillary , make all of the law abiding gun owners victims by disarming us . You are so misinformed about the cause of violence in this country , criminals will always get access to weapons and the only avenue to make them think about not commiting a crime is that they my wonder if their intended victim is armed and able to defend themselves.

    “We the People” need to have a complete reset from the top down.

    The forefathers put pen to paper for 13 colonies and there was no real government.

    “We the People” are no longer in control of our own government.

    “We the People” fell asleep and woke up to a government that controls us.

    It’s time for a complete reset, even if that means…

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

    Sadly the “DUMB MAJORITY” is running the “US of A” into a deep hole of worthlessness.

    “We The People” are no longer served by the people we voted for and trusted to run this country the right way.

    “We The People” are now serving our elected “Masters in Washington”. Who only and only serve themselves.

    Too many of the “DUMB MAJORITY”, are too busy with their own life problems to concern themselves with the running of this nation and it’s problems.Thus the continued lowering of the American standard of living and freedom. The “bar of freedom” that was once set high in America, is now so low, you can crawl on your belly to get over it.

    There are too few of us “SMART MINORITY” to make the changes this country needs to put America back on top. Our numbers are too few to make the difference with a vote.The only way for the “SMART MINORITY” to help right the continuing wrongs of this country and our government, is by a “BLOODY REVOLT”. YES, BLOOD must be spilled to thin down the numbers of the “DUMB MAJORITY”. So the “DUMB MAJORITY” will become the “DUMB FEW”. That is the only way I see this once great country, becoming a great nation again.

    Tyranny has many faces, right now the “DUMB MAJORITY” is one of them.

    The Presidential Oath, the only oath laid out in the Constitution, promises to “preserve, protect, and defend” the Constitution Of The United States-which includes the Bill Of Rights. Therefore, how can anyone be allowed to run for president on a platform that will be a lie the moment they take that oath? Given the candidates currently running for the office, this republic-called a democracy-is now an idiocracy. Have American voters become so ignorant as to even consider a person who has a history of making consistent decisions-all bad.?!? Whitewater, Bengazi, E-mails,-it goes on and on. I wish all ballots had a choice at the bottom that read “None of the above” which-if it got a majority vote- would disqualify all candidates at that point and force the advancement of other candidates. Question: The government is unable to track 11 million illegal aliens (sorry, “undocumented immigrants), so how do thy expect to track down 360 million guns (sorry, undocumented firearms)? The NY state SAFE act required registration of certain firearms. You know the type I’m talking about. The last thing I read about it, only about 23 thousand had been registered. Do you mean to tell me that there are only 23 thousand of these in NY state? Last question: in all the “mass shootings”, how many involved someone who could shoot back? “Gun-Free Zones” are “Come-and-shoot-me-’cause-nobody’s-going-to-shoot-back” zones. Also, I believe leaders should lead by example. Hillary, Bloomburg and individuals of that ilk should immediately disarm their security details. By doing this, “Common Sense (of the type used by Democrats when about to advocate something stupid) would indicate that any individuals of bad intent would surely realize the un-fairness of attacking these elite individuals and crime would thus be eliminated. Doesn’t that make sense?

    Lets just say that Hillary got her wish and got all the guns even the criminals guns lets just think for a minute .Would that really be enough I dont think so .That would not be satisfactory So what would she take next perhaps our freedom of speech which is already happening in some states all this politically correct krap .When we start giving up our rights then we are nothing more than government slaves. I will not relent don’t tread on me.

    This is why we should vote to make sure Hillary never sees her 1st day in office. GITMO would be a more fitting place for her!
