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

Hillary Clinton

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.

  1. The liberals will insist that that all gun owners bare the responsibility for all gun violence. When in reality it is the courts that are not enforcing the existing gun laws. For example by “trading off” charges, dropping a gun crime in favor of a stiffer drug charges. Failing to stop the “iron highway” (trafficking of guns from lax law states to states with draconian laws). Not enacting comprehensive background checks, and failure to create a national concealed carry permit that has reciprocity in all 50 states.

    The anti-gun nuts will not be happy until they have removed the modern sporter rifle and anything that even resembles it. They’ll spout off that these “weapons of war” have no place on the streets of America and that average Jane and Joe has no “NEED” for those firearms. Then they’ll come after high cap pistol mag’s claiming that your pistol doesn’t need a to hold so many “bullets”.
    Then we’ll get liberals like the state rep in California who was showing off a “ghost gun” which had a “30 round magazine clip” (direct quote) and that the gun fired “a 30 round clip in a single second. (I swear I’m not making it up, check out freedom fighters on FB)
    The short view of this is they don’t want us little people owning firearms for any reason. The only people that should own guns are the body guards that protect the rich and privileged and self righteous shrews like Hitlery.

  2. Criminals Do NOT abide by the law! PERIOD! They sell firearms every day. Do NOT discriminate against age, mental health, gender or anything else! So you tell me how any law will help. Just one!

  3. Hitler Clinton should not even be running for POTUS, she’s allready done it for eight years by proxy through Bill. The BEE just doesn’t get it, this is AMERICA. We have the right to own guns if we so choose, no one forced me to buy my guns. If for one second she thinks that I’ll hand them over cause her and thoose like her want to play dictatorship, with me as a slve, I’ll be in that militia that will take this country back!

  4. If she were a Conservative she would have been wearing an orange jumpsuit long ago. Hilary how about disarming your security/’bodyguards? Since eliminating gun will stop violence, lead by example. I forgot you are one of the Elite that deserves protection, the rest of us need to stop whining and accept what ever happens to us. Also you can’t have people taking the law into their own hands by protecting themselves.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. “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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

    1. @ Steelman

      In the cases of Whitewater, Benghazi and the E-Mail servers, HOW MANY Indictments were there? I can’t think of ANY, Can YOU!

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. Just try it bitch and you will have the shortest presidency of them all. We impeached your sorry assed husband and we can do the same to you.

  13. CONGRESS MAKES THE LAWS AND THE PRESIDENT MUST INFORCE THEM NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.. APARENTLY OBAMA DOSENT UNDERSTAND HOW OUR GOVERNMENT WORKS WHAT SO EVER, IN MY MIND HE SHOULDN’T EVEN BE SAYING TRUMP HAS NO IDEA WHAT TO DO IF ELECTED WHEN OUR CURRENT PRESIDENT IS SUCH A COMPLETELY CLUELESS WUSSY WHO ALLOWS OTHER COUNTRIES TO WALK ALL OVER US AS HE TAKES AWAY OUR RIGHTS AND PISSES ON OUR CONSTITUTION … SO HOW THE F#% DID HE BECOME PRESIDENT WHEN HE CONSTANTLY THUMBS HIS NOSE AT THE CONSTITUTION AND BREAKS THE LAW AND MAKING UP NEW ONES BY EXECUTIVE ORDER BECAUSE CONGRESS WON’T BACK ANY OF HIS BILLS BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY ARE FLAT OUT WRONG….CLINTON AND OBAMA FOR PRISON 2017

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

    1. desert, STFU. The crap coming out of you is EXACTLY what Clinton points at, and with good damb reason. You just advocated/ incited lethal violence on public figure. Curb your words, stop giving them everything they need. You do understand don’t you?

  16. 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.

    1. Mr. K, I like how you think. Direct and to the point. I would also like to say if for some reason hitlery goes get elected, she is going to have one hell of a time trying to disarm to the American people. Won’t happen.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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?

    2. 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.

      The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

    3. “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”
      –Thomas Jefferson

      “If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
      –Samuel Adams

  20. 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.

  21. 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????.

  22. 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?

  23. 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.

  24. First guns to go..only guns to go.hers and her security detail then ship her off to somewhere she would need one.
    She is the most ignorant vindictive female (not woman) I have EVER seen.

  25. 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 !!

  26. As long as the gun owners she attacks are the ones in the ghettos and inner cities…the thugs and criminals with illegal guns…
    oh wait…they are mostly democrats…so nothing will be done about THEM
    my mistake

  27. 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…

  28. 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.
