Hillary Says Mandatory Gun Buyback is ‘Worth Looking At’

Hillary Clinton

Democrat Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton has recently suggested that if she were elected president, she would make drastic changes in how Americans own and use guns.  

At a New Hampshire Town Hall last week, Hillary Clinton said that a mandatory gun buyback program is something “worth looking at,” referring to Australia’s firearms confiscation programs in 1996 and 2003, which collected roughly 700,000 banned semiautomatic rifles and other firearms.

Clinton admitted she would consider implementing such a system in America during a campaign stop in Keene, N.H. There, a prospective voter asked her, “Recently, Australia managed to get away, or take away tens of thousands, millions, of handguns. In one year, they were all gone. Can we do that? If we can’t, why can’t we?” Mrs. Clinton responded, “I think it would be worth considering doing it on the national level, if that could be arranged.” In response, Chris Cox, executive director of The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, said, “This validates what the NRA has said all along. The real goal of gun control supporters is gun confiscation. Hillary Clinton, echoing President Obama’s recent remarks on the same issue, made that very clear.” At a private gathering from which an audio recording of Clinton speaking was leaked, she stated her belief that the Supreme Court wrongly held that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to self-defense. In her own words from the recording: “…the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.” Also, Ms. Clinton has said that as president, she would work to pass legislation making gun manufacturers financially liable for the misuse of their products.

She likewise suggested that as president, she would issue an executive order that would create a presidentially written and mandated definition of occasional sales and gifts so as to require background checks for all gun transfers— a requirement Congress continues to reject.

“I want to push hard to get more sensible restraints,” Clinton said on NBC’s Today show. During the interview with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie on Today in Hollis, New Hampshire, the candidate rolled out plans for major new gun restrictions. “I want to work with Congress, but I will look at ways as president [to enact more gun regulations].” Currently, people who occasionally sell their firearms (private sales) or give guns as gifts are exempt from conducting background checks. Clinton’s proposed EO would define occasional sales and gifts to require background checks for all gun transfers.

These ideas will likely help Ms. Clinton in the Democrat primaries. A Pew Poll late last year (Dec. 10, 2014) found that up to 81 percent of self-categorized “liberal Democrats” think it’s more important to control guns than to protect gun rights. The Shooter’s Log reported on that poll here.

Envision Hillary Clinton as President. Do you think her— or any President for that matter — could be successful in enacting a nationwide gun ban or gun confiscation? Why or why not? Tell us in the comment section.

  1. Thanks Victor.
    It’s discouraging to see so many politicians today that are more concerned about getting reelected than actually doing their job. But I do honestly believe that we cannot give up on our country. So many patriots gave everything in order to secure a free land. There are many, many today that want things to be better. I have faith that we have bred a different kind of mentality here.
    We do not have any special genes that separate us from other people from other countries. We are unique however, in that WE THE PEOPLE are actually in charge. People will realize what’s at stake…we cannot give up without fighting for what’s right.

    1. ” We The People” are actually in charge. Really??

      Your world must be wonderful, like being in a dream…….

      How and what you have said/commented on here. Is a clear indicator, especially to me.That you and many like you fell asleep. And where/have been successfully manipulated in to thinking “We The People” are in charge.

      You and those that think like you are part of the problem. And are definitely not part of the solution. When you wake up and hopefully those that think like you, will too.

      “We The People” who have actually stayed awake and haven’t been manipulated will bring back “We The People” are in charge again.

  2. Bob, you need to sit down on the front porch and take a deep breath. Your comments imply a very dissatisfied individual that has lost his faith in everything that is good.
    The framers understood the weaknesses of human nature and tried their best to close the avenues to tyranny. What has happened lately in America is something that has been brewing for over 100 years. Those that have taken our system and corrupted it, spent a long and patient time in reaching this point. That doesn’t mean that it cannot be reversed if the people want it bad enough.
    Please stop insulting your fellow Americans and spreading negativity. It serves no purpose, save to give you cause to tell us that you told us so.

    1. YOU allowed it, YOU wanted it… AND…. YOU voted for it too!

      How are you liking it now………..SHEEP?

      Democracy at it’s best, Liberty at it’s finest.

      YOU better be serving and paying your elected “Washington Masters.”

      “Ain’t Freedom Grand”…..Fresh Mutton Stew is on the dinner menu.

      Order up!

    2. Nick, he is just scared… It happens. Especially when an individual is not educated and/or bright enough to understand the reasons behind the current state of affairs in our country, the chain of events which has led to the current situation. He feels like he’s been sold out, and partly he’s right, however, he does not know how to fix this situation, hence, the fear…

  3. Bob, we keep voting for them in the hopes that we will elect one that will make a difference. We cannot simply quit.
    James Madison pointed out that if men were angels, they would need no governance….and if angels ruled them, there would not need to be a set of rules limiting the rulers.
    But he knew all too well the nature of humans and how power affects them. In their wisdom, they tried to set up a constitution to limit the power of government, not the citizens. Do not lose faith.

    1. Welcome to America, where growing herds of “DUMB MADE IN AMERICA SHEEP” empty their pockets and willingly line up for slaughter.

      TOO DUMB TO KNOW, TOO DUMB TO CARE.

      “Ain’t Freedom Grand”……. “You better be serving and paying your Washington Masters”.

  4. If your a Clinton supporter remember the FBI had to physically go to the Clinton residence and retrieve White House paintings that didn’t belong to Clinton’s. My point is the true history of who Clinton’s are from past tense to present times is thievery, lies, deceit!

    As I look the range of people — young, old, or whatever age you might be and you believe that you need to have a person as Hillary is because the facts speak for themselves. Nobody but you can push the button on election day.

    If your brain dead, and you can’t separate good from evil the video you just witnessed is only the beginning of what you can expect from a continued Obama presidency.

    If Clinton gains the White House you caused it, nobody but you are responsible for America is no more. If you think it can’t happen watch and think of what Clinton’s have in store for your future. It ain’t gonna be pretty and you have nobody to thank but the image in the mirror. Horror at its finest! Believe it from religion to your Rights under the Constitution will disappear, and YOU caused it! Even the way you pray to God will be affected, and it ain’t no joke!

  5. HIDE BEHIND, from your post, it’s difficult to understand exactly where you stand on the issue. If you believe that we have a problem with guns because of the various military budgets passed over the decades, I would offer that a military budget that expands is likely viewed by many without taking into consideration that for the most part, the U.S. has remained free and a beacon to world freedom BECAUSE of it’s military strength. We have a strong military to discourage would be tyrants and despotic governments.
    Had we ourselves been truly a land-grabbing nation, we would have owned a number of countries throughout the planet. We never stayed in those we defeated in wars…nor did we make them pay anything for the restoration of THEIR freedom.
    And, while I am sure there would be many that would surrender their weapons….I am just as certain that many people would prefer to die fighting for their God given rights.
    The government must also feel that’s true, or they would not be trying so hard to take away our 2nd amendment.

  6. Democrat or Republican.

    More of the same, from the same.

    LIE, CHEAT, STEAL and be very CORRUPTIBLE.

    It has always been the American politicians way.
    All branches of our Government from local to federal level are made up of this.

    AND sadly, you know them, because you keep voting for them.

  7. 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, 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.

  8. Gun owners have helped place Clinton into position of power, in fact by their love of any and all wars and delusoons that their freedoms are owed to military we handed the Executive Branch dictatorial powers.
    I cannot think of one time when a government sought security bill was not cheered on by gun ownrs.
    Government bureaucrats represent their immediate bosses intents and will follow any orders that they are empowered to act under, including buying your guns on the cheap or stealing them by force if necessary.No conflict
    of interest. It is part of job.
    In Britian, Canada, Austrailia and Eastern US it was the systems of extreme levels of bureaucracy that makes them so dependent upon Government that they are the police state.
    There will be no armed insurrection in US, bs is cheap and the time for action was wasted by our parents and grandparents cowardice, stupidity and hubris of thinking being an american was as easy as saying it.

    1. Yep, Hide behind one of your fellow Americans. A real American Patriot.

      There is an American made “LOLLY POP” aka “SHEEP” born every mil. sec. right here in the “Good OL’ US of A.”

      The American made “LOLLY POP” are always the first ones in line to follow the other SHEEP jumping off a bridge.

      “LOLLY POP O LOLLY POP”

      I hear the makers of “Tootsie Roll” are looking for you Hide Behind

  9. Paul, You are correct. The constitution is written so that any amendments are very difficult to insert or change. But, the framers never expected the supreme court to be anything but a neutral body that would not lend ideology to their decision making. That was naive of them and of course, was the largest mistake the founders made in regard to the constitution. The problem is that she would stack that court with activist, liberal lawyers that would sign off on any presidential fiat that she imposed….thus bypassing congress all together and allowing the executive branch of government, write laws.
    Should she somehow be elected, it would seem then that we have lost our country and the next generation will be all about survival.

  10. Hillary will say or do just about anything to pander to her political base. She is dilusional and a liar….dangerous combination for the White House,as Obama has shown. Heaven help us if she gets elected!

  11. This sounds eerily familiar to the 1938 election in Germany. She is just one step removed from Adolf Hitler. Perhaps she should try and study history if she is literate enough to understand it. There is a reason that the Constitution is written the way that it is and to change it so dramatically and drastically is just one step away from becoming a full fledged dictator. Sadly, many American’s don’t even know how close we are to becoming the USSA instead of the USA. This is certainly far from what I fought for, and many of my friends have died for.

  12. Americans will stand up against tyranny. It is what we do. My favorite definition of “to stand” is to take a position and be prepared to defend it.

  13. Speak for yourself because those among the 60% majority never gave you the right to serve as our benefactors in deciding what is good for us dumb dumb.

  14. The scariest thing about the possibility of Hillary becoming our president is that she will be able to stack the supreme court with at least three, liberal judges. That would obviously mean that she could use her pen to write laws….which the executive branch is not allowed to do under the construction of our constitution….but upon being challenged, a liberal court would uphold such penned laws. There would be additional taxes levied on guns and ammo and the court would uphold those. In short, it would be very difficult to maintain one’s weapons and ammunition…not to mention that the sport of target shooting would become nearly obsolete.
    Incidentally, in Australia…there are far more guns in private hands than the government is willing to admit. Anyone that treasures having that right, will take necessary steps to stash and keep their weapons. No matter what, should this woman become president, there will no doubt be many incidents that will cause blood to be spilled. She is evil personified and needs to be incarcerated.

  15. Hillary Clinton isn’t against guns, per se; she’s simply against citizens having guns. Her goal for firearms isn’t that different from her position on government power. She wants to consolidate control through government, which requires the centralization of gun ownership at the military, state, and federal government levels.

    Since there are already over 300 million firearms circulating in the US, the best she can hope for is criminalization of the existing guns, while empowering the government with the ability of using their guns to confiscate or curtail ownership of those in private hands. This is the reason why the Founding Fathers included a Second Amendment in the Constitution–to prevent people like Hillary Clinton from happening.

    Hillary Clinton is dependent on a population that is so fearful for their safety they’re willing to give up one of their most fundamental rights—the right of self-defense—by entrusting the government with it entirely. To her, and those like her, when one person abuses their rights, and it leads to the harm of another, everyone becomes disqualified from exercising that right by association.

    Because Europeans have strict gun control, virtually nothing stands in their way when it comes to restricting free speech. That’s why the British and French both have restrictive free speech laws that would never pass muster in the US. If we allow Hillary Clinton to weaken the Second Amendment, it’s only a matter of time before the First Amendment becomes free game as well.

  16. The tree of liberty needs to be refreshed from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots! It will be time for this soon if these idiots get in to position to dictate our lives like they are dreaming of right now.

    1. 200-billion a year in foreign oil buys a lot of political leverage by foreign interests. We know who the red coats are and any politician promoting their agenda for enslaving an entire nation is a a turncoat.

    2. You should be aware that the USA is entirely energy independent and only imports minor quantities of Middle Eastern oil. This has happened during the past few years. During the same time there has been (give or take) about a quarter million jobs gained in this country EVERY month. You need to check your facts a little more carefully and not get news totally from the gun lobby and others with a deep financial interest in scaring people. Witness the survival food sales on tv. Who thinks America can be a place where a family has to hold their own and forage for years? Nobody … unless the Yellowstone Caldera erupts. That thing is notably non-political.

  17. How would they calculate the price at which to buy back guns? What about people who assembled their gun from parts kits, etc, would the optics, mags, ammo, upgrades be included, or pay for the time spent installing said parts/upgrades? What about junk guns? (non functional or even a hi-point etc) I could imagine banning bump fire stocks or sidewinders, maybe, But the fact that they haven’t “looked at” banning these types of things makes it seem like they are trying to take down all guln ownership at some point, why do the liberals not complain about the sig-brace, or the fact that you can manufacture l a shotgun with any length barrel as long as there is no stock in the design, these things would make sense to target first, if they wanted to have reform of gun laws. But instead they let these things remain kosher, so that they can come after all the guns. It seems ridiculous that nobody on the left side of the isle has mentioned this. Instead they are going for all semi-autos and hi capacity mags. Do they want to take 10/22’s also, why stop there if it’s about the rate of fire, and capacity, they should also take every kids co2 BB guns. They can hold an awful lot of rounds, and shoot semi-auto. It’s ridiculous if you ask me. Nowhere in the second amendment does it say a word about hunting. They would only be taking guns away from law-abiding citizens, the criminals and terrorists would obviously not turn theirs in anyway, duh! Whst are they going to do add on a few extra life sentences to murders who use firearms as opposed to knives? Life in prison is life in prison. How come nobody points out the countless incidents of firearms saving lives, and how long it takes for a police to respond to a 911 call ( for instance when there is a rapist or murderer in your house– who would be the only one possessing a gun by the way). The average response time of police range from 7 minutes, up to an hour(Detroit average is 58 minutes) or even longer if you live in the sticks, and the average armed conflict lasts only seconds. For the most part the police file reports after the fact, it would be a freak occurrence if police showed up in time to actually save someone’s life in a personal defense or home defense scenario. Oh and as far as I can tell most terror attacks aren’t accomplished with semi-auto guns anyway, usually they blow themselves up or am I missing something?

  18. To answer the first commenter above, yes it terrifies me to think that Hillary could be the next Pres., or Bernie for that matter. With her political connections, she has managed to evade justice on herself. I believe she is a pathological liar and will say or do anything to get her way. If you notice, she often doesn’t take a position on many issues until she or her staff do a careful analysis of public opinion. She molds herself to fit the polling data. Aside from her aspirations of a complete eradication of the 2nd amendment that she has made well known, she is liable to change her opinion on many things to maintain power, not because she has any conviction to humanitarian beliefs. In short, this woman would be dangerous for the country.

  19. Is it only me or does anyone else get terrified at the thought of Clinton becoming president? She wants to take the Constitution and wipe her $&@ with the ones she doesn’t agree with (#2). Why do you think we have never been attacked on a mass level by other countries, because they don’t just have he military to worry about…that’s just one reason I will think of leaving the US if she becomes the next person in charge….the 2nd is a rugby not a option and its not negotiable according to our forefathers and the fact that she thinks using presidential powers and skipping past the congress like a school girl on a lunch break just shows how much she will be a dictator and not a true president. She would never get any of her ideas pastor Congress and the only way she would ever accomplish any of her goals is to use her presidential powers and that alone is reason to show why she should never be elected she would never get any of her ideas pastor Congress and the only way she would ever accomplish any of her goals is to use her presidential powers and that alone is reason to show why she should never be elected! I’m terrified that she might become the next president and that my Second Amendment rights might be lost

  20. Australia isn’t America . It’s sad to think anyone wanting to be the leader of our great Nation would think that taking our firearms is the thing to do . Crazy people kill children in their school ! If the Newtown shooter’s mother would have lived, she should have had a life sentence in prison. Crazy people and terrorist give American gun owners a bad name. The world gets more dangerous daily. Terrorist are migrating everywhere instead of defending their own countries. Firearm ownership is a must for the future !

  21. Recently, there was an ambush in one of our neighborhoods. One shooter opened up with a .40 cal handgun, while another joined in with what was described as an AK-47.
    One of our stalwart congressmen….a guy named Doyle from PA…..offered that there was no place for an AK type weapon that can shoot 50 rounds in the hands of a civilian. Doyle obviously knows a lot about weapons!
    This is theoretically, a gang-related, retaliation shooting as one of the victims had been involved in a shooting prior to this incident. The tragic thing is that both men and women were targeted. Nearly everyone that was shot, had prior arrests for one thing or another.
    What I found fascinating also, was that the weapons were identified immediately…in truth, the spent round would be identified as recovered, but somebody offered that it was an AK-47. If this is true, I am wondering why the long gun could be identified, but neither of the shooters were clearly seen?
    At the risk of sounding racist…most of the ongoing violence occurring that include guns, is taking place in black neighborhoods. I know the unemployment rate is very high and there is much poverty…but how does someone equate these shootings with being the answer….and why are people like Congressman Doyle more eager to blame the guns than the thugs responsible?

  22. This is a repeat, you talked about this a few weeks ago. Must be a slow day at the bean factory. Please show new topics you have 225 comments

  23. If donald trump is elected you will keep your firearms and not be turned in to a criminal. If hillary is elected at the least you will turn in your guns along with who knows what other civil rights also the chance of starting a civil upheaval never seen in this country since the civil war. Prepare for what may come. Never had a fire but i keep a fire extinguisher handy. Buy what you can now. You may need it . GET OUT THERE AND VOTE .

  24. I believe trying to confiscate guns in the USA could start a civil war, and also know no one who would turn them in most say they are prepping for the day they will stand with the three percent like our forefathers did. In numbers there is strength. GOD BLESS AND SAVE AMERICA

  25. I’m a liberal/socialist myself but I’m an armed liberal/socialist. I wouldn’t hand in my guns no matter how much they offered to “buy them back”. She can try a VOLUNTARY buy back and maybe get some weapons back from some people in desperate need of fast cash, but mandatory? Not a chance. Would never fly anyway. It’s not like congress will go overwhelmingly to HER kind of “liberal” anyway plus a great many states souls simply refuse to go along.

    You couldn’t but back my handgun and if you bring back an assault weapon ban, I would never get rid of mine ever. I daresay that the gun manufacturers are going to make a ton of money if it looks like SHillary was going to win. Y’all might want to stay stocking up on ammo too as there is always the side route of trying to restrict ammo sales instead of guns. Also get geared up for rolling your own ammo if not already as well to get around possible ammo restrictions.

    1. PRAEDOR…calling yourself a liberal/socialist might mean a bevy of things such as liberal on how apply a country’s laws….or the acceptance of some minority rights. Ordinarily, a liberal would reject the notion of gun ownership being a right unless a member of some militia….and argument offered by many liberals.
      Socialism is some that most young people adhere to, as in ” if you’re 20 and not a socialist, you have no heart….if you’re 40 and not a conservative, you have no brain.”
      Such were the words of Winston Churchill.

  26. With the death of justice Scalia, the vacancy on the supreme court is one of the biggest items to consider in November. Should Hillary become president, there will be a liberal justice appointed which will influence how our laws are interpreted for a long time. While there will not be enough Democrats to repeal the 2nd amendment, they will write laws that will take bits and pieces away, making it hard to get ammo….hard to get semi auto weapons…and allowing manufacturers to be sued…..among other thing they will think of. No matter, there will be national registration and confiscation for minor infractions of any and all laws. Moving violations…turning age 65….over drawn checking accounts….there will be things we can’t even think of that will make it impossible to purchase a weapon or ammo.
    No matter who you might like on the GOP side….vote for the nominee. We cannot afford to have Hillary calling shots.

  27. Hillary thinks we should look into a buy back program, nation wide? This is a person that believes her own BS. She is a criminal, guilty of allowing the murder of 4 Americans in Libya. Her life is compiled of lies. She obviously knows much about many, and it is allowing her to skate. But, I cannot believe there are so many Democrats in this country that would overlook her evil ways and still embrace her.

  28. No big surprise here…Hillary is just another ignorant uninformed blowhard anti-gun anti-2nd Amendment progressive liberal (socialist). They will do anything and say anything to advance their ideological agenda…never mind facts, the truth, or the Constitution.

  29. David, don’t confuse being worked up with avidly opposed to an unconstitutional mandate.
    All too many people of this generation have little understanding of what our constitution represents. They would rather view it as a living document that can be changed to fit with modern times. Not enough credit is given to the framers of that code of conduct. The declaration pointed to the specific reasons of why we choose to revolt against King George. The taxes levied onto us, treated us essentially like a milking cow to provide wealth to the royalty across the ocean without offering us a say in how we might be governed…the term was taxation without representation. Those framer carefully, stated that the bill of rights that followed that declaration, were endowed unto us by our creator…not a man, be he royal or not. In doing so, they knew that no elected member of congress could revoke those rights without giving great offense to this nation. While there are ways and means to amend that code of conduct, it isn’t easy and they planned it that way.
    You point to my being worked up about something that probably will not happen…while I am not worked up, I hope you’re correct in saying it will not happen. This nation is conceived by the idea that people can govern themselves and that according to natural law, no man shall be enslaved by another except by his consent. We give our representatives that consent by our votes. And as John Adams, our second president stated, this constitution is meant for a moral and religious people….it will not work for any other kind. I am not worked up about one thing, I am in fact very concerned about a multitude of incidents that have and are taking place within our leadership that bodes not well. So, in regard to this reply, let me say that if you are not concerned that our leaders in Wash. take too many liberties, then you are whistling pas the graveyard.

  30. Sanders actual record on voting for gun issues. Gun control is near the bottom of his priorities, because he actually listens to Criminology research that shows reducing poverty has a greater effect than legislation on preventing crimes.
    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/jul/10/generation-forward-pac/did-bernie-sanders-vote-against-background-checks-/
    His record on gun control is that of a moderate, not a liberal like most of his issues, being an independent he is more pragmatic and isn’t compelled to appease a party line.

  31. and just who exactly do these ignorant people think are doing these mass killings is it Law abiding citicens who lawfully own firearms or thug crimials who dont give a crap about gun laws or the sanctity of life?… wel llet me think about that for a minute… Hmm would it possibly be the thugs? Not no but Hell no I am not giving up my guns to any one, PERIOD and i Knot that there are millions of like minded folks who feel as strongly about it as I do. My question is how do we get through to the sheeple to have them realize that the police and the government cannot protect them nor do they have the desire to protect anyone and an unarmed society is easy prey for the criminals as well as the government who so desperately wants to control the people.

  32. Where does Hitlery plan on getting enough man power to confiscate all the guns at one time? I don’t think that there are enough military and other law enforcement personal that would that would follow such an illegal executive order to make it a reality.
    As for a proposed buyback program, where is the money going to come from? Is Hitlery not aware that the national deficit is over 18 trillion and growing? The only thing she might accomplish is getting herself is being turned in a pile of ashes if she attempted an Australian type gun confiscation action. And did I forget to mention that my home was burglarized while I was at work? Darndest thing is that only my guns and ammo where taken, nothing else. But hopefully the majority of voters will come to there senses and vote for anyone but hitlery and then we Americans won’t have to endure this type of a nightmare.

  33. Victor, I seriously doubt that the govt. would coordinate a confiscation very quickly without some screw ups. Not enough robots working for the feds to spread around.
    The media reports approx. 300M guns in public hands…I believe that is a conservative estimate and there are yet many very old but serviceable weapons brought back from as late as the Korean conflict that no one can account for. People today are realizing how important it is to have a gun with no record. The trick is to get plenty of ammo while there are no restrictions in place…and, there are ways to put your weapons in hiding. As for concentration camps…they need some folks to work so not everyone will be enslaved. Keep your powder dry.

  34. @ John Phillips:
    What a coincidence!! Crime is so rampant and widespread…..I leave the house for 10 min. to run to the store….and when I return home my rifle, shotgun, and handgun were all stolen. All that was left was the .17 cal. pellet rifle.
    Damn…….I forgot to take down and keep the serial #s. My bad.

    WILL

  35. Sorry Hillary. I must have failed to mention that all my weapons and ammunition were stolen in a burglary last night. Maybe I should report that . Crime is terrible anymore. I guess you and Billy Boy will have to settle for a nice fat burger with fries.

    1. John Phillips, no worries, they’ll find a way to make sure your guns and ammo do not get stolen a day before the confiscation. Either way, you’ll either comply or and up in a concentration camp. Most of us, present here, are not fools, we do understand that all this crap is not about gun control, but rather a total control over society. The word “totalitarianism” comes from “total”, don’t forget this simple linguistic fact…

  36. Hilary needs to stick to crap she knows, cheating husband, how to lie about e mails, and being a MOTHER! A real Mother

  37. Talk of votes when we do not know how or who does the counting; where have your heads been in last few elections?
    Your damned voting habits have just about tottaly destroyed the majority of nations familys and working age peoples, over 50% now cannot find liveable wage jobs and are working for below poverty wages.
    You wave guns wrapped in red white and blue bloody nationalism of constant wars with 28 concientious ex vets offing themselves daily,
    YOU watched as 1.7 million people lost homes during last financial scandals, billions disapeared from 401k @and 2/3 of non public sector retirees only recieve 80% of promised monthly rattes and your elected gives the criminals and themselves 1.4 trillion doollars in congratulations bonus’s.
    Cops are daily beating maiming harrassing until perso n breaks and then they beat them down and make good arrest; and those abused are lucky some itchy triggered mind freak in blue does not kill them.
    Why do you vote for that?
    Because you benefit from it, it makes you feel good to play school house games, as long as you can buy guns who gives a fly’n duck turd about real politic of US.
    Oh and speaking of ducks, come take s look and see how few west coasters have left after your voted in political military (has) three illegal plutonium weapons enrichment plants in Japan melting for last 4+years.
    of course they did not let their citizens know that 8million wl contract cancer half will be under 8 years of age within next 10 years.
    Most important one realize bullet does not cure cancer only relieves the pain.
    So enjoy and lets hope you dodge the bullets already sent and the many more in the future that those whose ass you kiss by voting for will most assuredly send your way.

  38. Tom, I share your frustration with how the GOP runs it’s election plans. I do not agree however, that a conservative ideology is what prevents them from winning. I think it is the opposite….there are too many moderate Republicans in congress who attempt to woo the moderates of both parties to vote for Democrat Lite. A Democrat voter will seldom if ever, vote for a GOP candidate. A moderate Republican may at times, vote for a Democrat. Of course, as so many true conservatives stay home and abstain…people like Obama gets elected for a second term. Romney was and is a moderate and, a part of the establishment. Five million conservative abstained last presidential election. I am not particularly fond of Romney, but I feel the country would have functioned far better these past three years had he been elected. As for Cruz…you do him a dis service…HE IS a true conservative who attacked the limp noodle Mitch McConnell, and that is why he is being demonized by his own party.

  39. Obama and Hillary both praise Australia on their gun ban, but looking at the number something is not right. Now if you look at the crime stats, you will notice they are reporting anywhere from 1.1 to 1.6 per 100,000 homicide rate. At the same time they are reporting 7.7 per 100,000 homicide rate in the Northwest Territory. If you get into the data the 1.1 to 1.6 per 100,000 represents the less populated and indegious areas of Australia. This means Australia is using a dual reporting system on tracking crime. The numbers the news media and anti gunners are presenting do not add up. 7.7 does not equal 1.1 period.

  40. The Republicans will lose the Presidential Election all on their own. They always pick a candidate that is so conservative that while it appeals the far right’s ideology they don’t appeal to the undecided or conservative Democrats. The Republican Party doesn’t know how to play to win. They would rather rant about ideology and how terrible Hillary is. Unfortunately, the Democrats do play to win. They understand you have to appeal to a broader audience to get in the White House. If you don’t get in the White House first you can’t change things. Hillary will win and for gun owners that is dangerous because of the number of Supreme Court Judges she will appoint. They are the Wild Card. And by the way, I’m Republican, but I won’t vote for Cruz or the New York Blowhard. No, I won’t vote for Hillary. I will simply abstain.

    1. Good Tom that’s a vote for Hilary. Oh and by the way if you think the last 2 republican candidates were to conservative I’m afraid you don’t quite understand what a conservative is.

  41. That the GOP has done well in the congressional races does not tell me that all is well and everything is legit. The establishment GOP is nothing less that Democrat Lite and fits well with the attitude that has prevailed in politics for the past 100 plus years. Both parties have an unwritten law to abide by, which is to take their turns at the wheel. The battle is within that group that we see as nothing more than politics as usual. However, they delude themselves if they do not recognize that there is an enemy within that wants a new world of government here in the U.S. More and more, this govt. moves away from Natural Law and ignores the constitution. That document covers via the declaration the very wrongs that infringed on man’s freedom. Most of the Bill of Rights, addresses those wrongs, and while we no longer have a king ignoring those rights, we have a cadre of progressives that sans the titles, continues to act as royalty. They place themselves above the law and ignore common good. We are a republic that merely consents to cede to that govt, the right to govern. Because of ignorance by the general population, we are in danger of losing our republic.

  42. If Clinton thinks Arms manufacturers should be held financially liable for misuse of their products, then she should be financially liable for all of the victims of those who could not protect themselves because of gun confiscation directed by her!

    1. I agree with “Lancer” on his comments. Maybe she should dip into her Clinton Foundation money coffers which were illegally obtained and compensate the families of the four Americans murdered in Benghazi.. It’s not like she and Billy Boy can’t afford it.

  43. Hillary would love to see all guns be taken from law abiding citizens. She knows that in her circle, the bad guys never get the chance to come within a mile of her family. Even a voluntary buy back program is a sad thing to see….people giving up a part of their birthright for a few, worthless dollars.

  44. I should tell big mouth for her to tell her security team to sell there guns for her.I wonder what she would think of that I as one of the millions of brothers who protected her and this country.she jus be out of of rabbit mind

  45. If Bernie Sanders wants a band on guns, in his state he would be better off in playing in a band, to many gun owners are voters. Hey Bernie and Hilary you want the American gun owners vote don’t mess with gun laws.

  46. I’m an independant that was raised Republican, I vote either way, I tend to lean towards mostly liberal views(which I personally make a clear distinction from Democrat’s Agenda) I am a Vet, former L.E. and I understand the importance of keeping our gun rights, the way I see it, if you don’t like guns, don’t buy one. I like my guns and I am repsonsible with them, so I don’t see what the issue is, other than the NRA’s financial support of the GOP irks the DNC so they make it an issue, even though statistically firearms only account for 0.78% of all deaths, whereas heart disease is responsible for almost 23% of all deaths, yet the effort fix the gun “problem” is thousands of times greater than curbing heart disease.

    You aren’t the only life long Republican voting for Sanders, please spread the word and keep Clinton out, and then decide the best man in the general election.

  47. Seems more people are killed by cars than guns. Humm’ maybe we should issue exe order to confiscate all cars. Makes about as much sense.

  48. Quite simply… Don’t mess with a Patriot ! The simple minded liberals will be begging for our protection when the “S H T F” God bless the American Patriot !

  49. This is exactly why I will be voting for Bernie Sanders in the Primary Election, he is “to the left” of Hillary on most things, but definitely not on Gun Control, he makes it clear that his current state, Vermont has virtually no gun conrol laws, as they don’t need them. He voted against the Brady Bill, and voted to protect Manufacturers and Retailers from liability. As an Independent running for the Democratic nomination, he has been dancing around the questions other than saying he favors Universal Instant Background checks. Although prior to the Primary campaign, he has stated that gun control legislation should be left to the states and municipalities depending on what their constituents want, which is why as a Vermont Senator, he has been true to the wants and needs of his constituents by not bothering with any gun control measures. Even if you are a strong conservative, you might have a difficult decision to make with your upcoming primaries, as I personally feel that Bernie Sanders has a better chance of winning over Hillary “guns are evil” Clinton than the Republican nominees would in the general election.

    1. This is so funny as I’m a life long Republican, I’ve never voted for a Dim-O crap in my life although I did vote for Ross P as an independent which of course gave the election to Clinton :(.

      The reason it so funny is I’ve decided that I will vote in the Demo primary in Texas for Sanders, anything to keep Hillery out of the WH.

  50. Too many legally owned firearms in America. A Catch 22 in the making. Gun buyback would only work here at Fair Market Value, not $50 ea. insult! As each buy back increased the Fair Market Value would Rise exponentially thereby Bankrupting the U.S. Treasury. Hillarious is at the very least already Morally Bankrupt and should have NO consideration Whatsoever!

  51. Hide Behind maybe you should ask the troops how they feel about it. In many areas they are just coming in from field training exercises, they should not be to hard to catch up with. Their answer may floor you and destroy your perception.

  52. Plain and simple I see these so called political parties that want to be president for we the people are just another Communist Party that wants to strip us of our constitutional rights in turn this country into A one party rule their rules complete power over the people

  53. One good thing having to do with responsible gun ownership today compared tovthe past is that we no longer bear the burden of ever having to stop our out of control government with them.
    Now we can go back to just having fun and practicing for day we can Waltrr Mitty war heroes until the chance comes when we finally canlegally kill a bad guy, and if realy lucky we can unpack those bug out bags and have a turkey shoot if the poor decide to revolt.
    THINK YOU NOT THAT YOU BE WILLING TO KILL THOSE POOR- THINK YOU AGAIN , AS IT IS THEY YOU FEAR AND PREPARE FOR ON SHTF DAY IS IT NOT?
    AND YOU QUESTION IF AMERICAN TROOPS AND POLICE WOULD FIRE UPON AMERICANS.
    WHO YOU TRYING TO FIB .

  54. The first step in a tyranny is to disarm the masses. When tyranny becomes law, rebellion becomes duty. I may wear camo and carry an m16 but I’ll be damned if I use it on fellow Americans do destroy the rights maintained by the constitution and members of the armed uniform services (military/law enforcement). The scary thing is that if there is another civil war in this nation there will not be a Geneva convention or LOAC or rules of engagement. It will be bloodier than the first civil war and possible far more devistating. Both sides may wind up in possession of chemical or biological weapons and when it comes to effectiveness those things will kill and destroy far more lives and resources than any firearm ever could. The bullet is used in very judial killing. Chem/bio weapons will kill everything indescriminantly combatants, non combatants. It poisons the air and taints the soil and turns America the beautiful into America the wasteland. It scares me to think about and it makes me sad. It’s a worst case scenario and I would hope and prey that those in power in this country would not let it get this bad, but many bad things in this world happen because good people fail to act. Remember your civic duty vote and urge your fellow American to do like wise.

  55. To say that our own military will come against the people I will say I doubt it as we swear in we raise our right hand and swear to protect country and people not politics. To say that a president to use the military to do his own agenda I don’t think so his gotta remember that there is more of us out here in the civilian world than in the military . oh yeah president you your self cut our own military do you really think we the people of this must amazing country in the world would just lay down and surrender well news flash this is USA the home of the brave because we are and will always remain free.

  56. I am an old man and i have thought about this for some time. When they come for my guns they will have to kill my wife and I. The U.S.A. will be no place to exist anyway. This would be America’s Last Stand and I would hope we would not allow this to happen.

  57. Don’t sit on your ass this election cycle. Get your freedom minded friends to vote, get after them and the people that they know to also vote. The failure to do so will mean that YOU get to LICK THE BOOTS OF YOUR MASTER. Get off your ass. Blogging here or elsewhere is meaningless, you must confront people face-to-face one-on-one. The keyboard in front of you will convince no-one. I put my s^%$ behind Ron Paul in 2012 and went all the way to the RNC in Tampa Fl. as a Colorado Delegate. Never tell me that your vote or your voice won’t make a difference. Since 2012 I have given and written speeches for political candidates because they know that I am in touch with the local people in my town. Get Up! Stand Up! Stand Up For Your Rights!!!

  58. They want to confiscate ar-15’s and such claiming they are weapons of mass destruction yet who regulates the development of their nuclear weapons since they are definitely WEAPONS OF “MASS” DESTRUCTION. The f’in’ barrel would melt off an ar-15 killed before it killed as many people as one of their nukes. So who “Really needs their weapons confiscated and the true criminals with weapons of mass destruction ?”

  59. Every time I hear about “buyback”, I remember how Nazis would “buyback” Jewish businesses back in the 1930s in Nazi Germany. They never called it “confiscation”, but rather a fair buyback. In average, they paid 300 marks (abt. $150) per business while some of them were worth millions. Alas, the history does repeat itself…

  60. The Supreme Court is the final Arbiter of the Constitution. The Supreme Court “interprets” the Constitution and their decisions are the law of the land. The Supreme Court can find interpretations of the Constitution that are not even mentioned nor even considered by our founding fathers. ( Roe v. Wade)

    Yet when it comes to the Second Amendment Mrs. Clinton can state that the United States Supreme Court was WRONG?
    The Second Amendment actually states “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms” and “shall not be infringed.” Unlike other interpretations of the Constitution this one is actually enumerated.

    So I guess , and “Heaven Forbid” she get elected, she will, at her swearing in, immediately be violating her oath of office which is to “protect and defend” the Constitution of the United States. She will be much like our current President which had not nor do I believe even intended to honor that oath. I suppose the oath will need to be changed for our progressive and Liberal leaders to read,” to protect and defend those portions of the Constitution that I agree with and discard those that I do not.”

  61. “Recently, Australia managed to get away, or take away tens of thousands, millions, of handguns. In one year, they were all gone. Can we do that? If we can’t, why can’t we?”

    To Hitlery and the prospective voter – There is one small little reason that separates us from the Australians. Its called the Constitution and Bill Of Rights. Besides, do you really think that the American people are going to voluntarily surrender their firearms? Do you think the government has the balls to try and confiscate over 300,00,000 privately owned firearms? Don’t think so. As far as Hitlery’s mandatory gun buyback program is worth looking into, keep looking , skank. You are a real POS.

  62. I watched the video, and read the comments…and holy critters people.

    Take a deep breath. Still mad? Take another deep breath. Let your emotions calm, then watch the video again.

    She’s not talking about, anywhere, that the ‘gun buyback’ is ‘mandatory’. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no Hilary supporter, but I’m also out there for the truth too. Australia is an example, as is Canada and others, about a firearm buyback program. The reason why the Australian buyback program was mandatory was due to the gun law changes. Here, she’s talking about a way to make this voluntary, to try and reduce the total number of guns in ownership. No where, at all, did she mention mandatory. More information on the gun buyback program is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_buyback_program

    With that said…I don’t necessarily think that a gun buyback program is a bad idea. I’m sure there are plenty out there who would be willing to part with their firearms. Would I? No, I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t take part in such a program. Do I think that others may? Well, maybe.

    Most of the comments I saw seemed to freak out over “the dems are coming for our guns.” All I can really recommend is, please, chill out a bit all. Go off of the facts of the video, not over the incredibly bias article here…because seriously? the author is incredibly guilty of baiting people here.

  63. At the end of the day it is highly unlikely that she will be able to do anything because there is the one involved here that no one is considering… loss of gun industry jobs and taxes if she shuts this industry down with choking regulations and useless laws. Money always has and always will talk. Even somebody as stupid as Hillary and her demonrat minions know that.

  64. X military, along with over a million of my brothers and sisters. Mrs Clinton, are you willing to risk war on our soil? In Texas we have a saying “Come Take It!”

  65. If you are a law abiding gun owner that also happens to be a democrat, and you are considering voting for this witch in a blue pantsuit, then don`t bitch when she comes a running for your and my guns. She has said repeatedly for years she wants confiscation and with the way the republicans can`t get out of their own way, she may just have a democrat majority in both houses of congress to make a hard run at making her gun grabbing goals a reality. Think about that when you enter the voting booth in 2016. Vote republican and run these worthless SOB`s out of Washington.

    1. The personal hatred is interesting. There isn’t going to be anything even faintly resembling a mandatory gun buyback, no matter who wins the election. If that’s why you hate Mrs.Clinton, then someone has deceived you.

  66. Isn’t this grand, we finally have a candidate for the office of the President who wants to throw out the Constitution of the United States. Thus we ring in the death of the United States of America, and the beginning of the Union of Socialist North America. I wasn’t going to vote for her to begin with, I certainly will not vote for her now. MOLON LABE bitch – I foresee the day coming that I will become a criminal.

  67. Why not regulate gun laws better and not let this country of Ours be totally controlled by the government. We do not want to be like China, Russia and other communist states. The men in this country need to be men, like those of World War 2 and stand up for our rights and the Constitution of the United States of America. A lot of men in this country are becoming femine and weak, we could be in trouble.

  68. There isn’t any chance of major action to restrict gun buying or ownership by the general public. Our national government has had a terrible time making decisions about anything in the last 20 years or so, and the NRA and gun industry are very well entrenched. The fretting about gun control has helped gun sales quite a bit, but the tone of much of the discussion verges on sounding hysterical. Quite a few states have actually weakened their gun laws in recent years. Nothing substantial is going to happen, no matter how the election turns out.

  69. Hillary needs to take herself and Bill back to Bingazy and see where she failed our soldiers that was in need but failed them as she would fail us as Americans.

    1. Are you equally angry about the other attacks on US facilities over the years–some with far greater casualties than Benghazi? Are you at all angry at the members of Congress over the years due to their decisions about security at US facilities?

  70. so if someone gets stabbed with a butter knife are have buy back program what about cars or maybe hammer buybacks these items don’t kill people people do,I feel the way it is right now we are on a level playing field with the criminals the way the constitution is written is the way it needs to stay the federal government needs to quit stabbing the populace in the back,we pay their wages and their insurance and all they do is figure out another way to sh%$ on us!

  71. I cannot believe that this sh$% keeps coming up, that she really thinks that this is going to work in America where we have a Constitution that states we have the right to bear arms. That we have a God given right to defend ourselves against tyranny and the stripping of our God given rights of Happiness.
    How can anyone running for President clearly shun the Constitution that they will raise there hand and swear to uphold and protect. I cannot understand how “WE THE PEOPLE” would even trust or consider someone like that as are next leader.
    Gun laws also on effect the law binding American gun owners, the criminals don’t care about what the sign says or what laws are passed. Hello, wake the hell up cannot you see, that’s why these criminals pick gun-free zones to do there horrific carnage at, do you really think they want too get shot by a gun loving American sheep dog protecting his flock from the wolves, NO the criminal doesn’t what that, he wants helpless sheep to pray upon.
    “To many sheep, not enough sheep dogs!”

  72. Kiss my azz Clinton. I’m sick of the democrats and all their liberal bulls##t. It’s the same old song every day. Keep my tax money and spend it on something important like paying down the national debt. Did I say kiss my azz Clinton? If NOT “KISS IT”. Damn bunch of Socialist.

    1. John W.: Before you make a comment, why not consider looking at the exact quote? She said:

      “Clinton replied, “I do not know enough details to tell you how we would do it, or how it would work, but certainly the Australian example is worth looking at.” The reason, she said, is that “by offering to buy back those guns, they were able to curtail the supply and to set a different standard for gun purchases in the future.”

      In other words, she was talking about a voluntary buy back program to reduce the number of certain types of weapons which is totally different from the Australian which makes it mandatory. Of course this all was blown out of context to instill unfounded concern of gun owners. As an example, my close just purchased a Glock 9mm because he is convinced that the President can, and will take away our weapons. How the hell is he/she going to that? They can’t because congress would never let that happen, and neither would the vast majority of Americans.

  73. Eventually gun confiscation will happen in the USA. There is no stopping it. For over 25 years our country has been following the lead of the progressives. They control our schools, our government and our press. 25 years of telling you that they know what is best. We have become sheep in a herd. The wolves leading us to our end. What ever happened to the sheep dogs?

    1. I doubt gun confiscation will happen, but it is something to watch out for. One can easily get paranoid, and that’s the thing I’m suggesting people be careful of.

      Be vigilant, just don’t be paranoid.

    2. Rosco, I don’t think so. The constitution and Bill of Rights have withstood the test of time, and it will withstand this latest assault, and if anything will come out stronger than before.

    3. If you can’t tell this old man was a shill placed there to pose this insane question then you are clueless. He even had to read his question off an index card, and we are suppose to believe that this coward is really from the state with the motto “Live Free, or Die”?

      There are more guns in the hands of private citizen hunters of any single state in the heartland or the south than in the hands of all the militaries of the world. Most American soldiers are smart enough to know it would be smarter to side with the people rather than obey unconstitutional orders of a commie government. Not more than 10% of citizens with guns would surrender their guns just because these idiots passed a “mandatory buy back” law … I’d say all they’d accomplish by trying to force confiscate guns would be to start a civil war and that just might be their ultimate plan.

    4. Why do you say “we”? You mist mean you as I have no intention of giving up any of my Constitutional Rights and at 60 years old…I really do mean that I will die behind the trigger and my wife says she will die reloading magazines. You will surrender as you are afraid to die. I want to die verses being a slave to a government run amok, and I say this knowing full well that the PIG is monitoring my words as we speak. You do NOT SPEAK FOR ME>

  74. No president is going to end anything that involves a great deal of money, or guns. Controlling guns or people is an illusion, Hillary speaks and proves she is either stupid or just wants to say what she thinks people want to hear. Guns aren’t going away, this debate has been going on all of my life and I am sure it will continue. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

  75. There can be NO TOLERANCE for Hillary, or any presidential candidate who does not support their Country’s own Bill of Rights/Constitution. No true American citizen could support a direct attack upon their own liberty and quite honestly, their Country.

    1. If you read her quote, you wouldn’t be posting your response because she never advocated weapon confiscation.

    2. The first step toward tyranny is the disarming of the people. That can be tyranny at home or from abroad. It is both curious and ironic that a government would take guns away from it’s own citizens while providing arms to other countries fighting their own domestic oppressors. While there are translations of the Bill of Rights that are nationalist, the progressive views are that it is obsolete and misinterpreted. It’s a shame the crimes of the few are paid for by those
      who live by and obey the law.

    3. Well if she happens to make it to the White House then we all need to make she we push for legislation that would make them liable for there actions in office let them pay for the misuse of there power

  76. I believe it is very, very possible that she would try to use executive
    order to accomplish whatever she wants to do, just like her predecessor. I am very concerned about whether police and armed forces would side with the Constitution and therefore the people or would they blindly follow the orders or the puppet commanders who would no doubt be put into positions of authority once she is elected.
    . As I see it, the real problem is how to keep the Democratic Party from stealing another election by registering 150% of the population in their states to vote democrat.

    1. We all know, that Obama COULD NOT be voted for the second term… but he was. We all know that the past election was fixed, and there is tons of evidences for it. We all know that the Dems will pull these tricks again next year. The only thing we do not know is how to stop these maniacs who hate our country, who hate our Constitution, who hate our liberties and rights as citizens. We must stop them, but how?! Anyone?

    2. Actually,there isn’t much evidence of rigging the election on either side. Note, too, that the GOP has been doing pretty well in Congress and in quite a few state elections. The Democrats don’t hate the country or the Constitution; they have different ideas about what would be help the country and how to interpret the Constitution. Americans have been quarreling about the Constitution’s meaning since the battle over ratification, There won’t be any large-scale gun buyback no matter who wins the election.

    3. Have you asked any of them, Ed? I have. They’d side with the people. Executive orders or meaningless when it comes to this issue. No law, no executive order, no “mandatory” buy back program, no threat of arrest, prison or death will get the vast army of gun owners to willingly surrender their guns and becomes slaves of a tyrant king/queen or new world order. Curb your hysteria and get a grip on yourself before someone thinks you’re a coward who is unwilling to stand up and fight to keep your freedoms.

      Side note: if you haven’t figured out that the majority of both the democrat and republican party politicians and their lap dogs in media and staff are not on your side then you haven’t been paying attention since the GOP took control of congress. Don’t put your faith in electing one party over the other as your salvation … what part of NEW world order do you not understand? There was only one who ever claimed to come for your salvation and he didn’t support, or belong to, either party.

  77. I’m with you and others on this very important issue. We’re under heavily attacking from the liberal socialist every day. Not sure that we are winning or loosing at this point. If the rest of the young Americans are still at sleep. We will be doomed for sure. I wish that I can wake them up before it too late

  78. I’ve lived a great life in this country except for the last ten years. I had to remove half of my gun collections to my ranch in the mid-west because California won’t allow my type of assault weapons. Getting worse so if Clinton gets in that’s it for the 2nd. amendment.

    1. RJ, odumbo and Hitlery might be able to get away with their unconstitutional executive orders concerning the Second Amendment, but unless they somehow manage to declare martial law and suspend the Constitution and Bill Of Rights, the Second Amendment will stand.
      I believe that congress has to authorize martial law before a president can impose it. Another thing, it takes a Constitutional Amendment to abolish a Contitiutional Amendment. A good example was the 18th Amendment. It took the 21st Amendment to abolish it.

  79. I’ve got to believe this is where the. Majority truly will draw that preverbeal line in the sand. I’d like to hope so anyhow.

    We all know what comes after they “buyback” (see confiscate, and round up) they move on to something much worse, taking whatever they’d like after that as we have no physical say afterward.
    Time and time again history shows this.

  80. They keep saying to get ready for a revolution! This will probably be it. Gun owners will not just hand their guns over MOSTLY because if they do–ONLY the bad guys will have guns! I hunt and will protect myself and family with my guns and I love my guns.I will not shoot up a school or anything else but I will fight NOT to be shot up! WAKE UP! Taking guns away will solve nothing! Give the victims their rights! The crazed shooters need to be dealt with and made extinct QUICKLY!!

  81. All this coming from someone who has 24/7/365 coverage by guards armed with hi cap pistols and sub machine guns, who was fired from her first job for lying, unethical conduct, rights violations, document destruction, supported the Marxist black panthers torture and murder of Alexander Rackley, she sure didn’t have any problem with them shooting him in the head after torturing him for hours, the same Hillary who moved thousands of miles to intern for a communist lawyer, who wrote her college thesis on Saul Alinsky, who was in charge of bimbo eruptions, the same Hillary who lost 6 billion from the state dept, the same Hillary responsible for the murders of four Americans. That Hillary Clinton who is an alcoholic and unfit for anything?

  82. I believe that if elected Clinton may try gun control but will meet with the same anger that other presidents have faced. I also believe that if any president is successful in gun confiscation, that president will be signing the death warrant of more innocent victims of gun violence than all of the “mass shootings” combined.

  83. I agree, and you put it so much better than I could put it in words. Appreciate your comments. Lock and load.and keep your powder dry.

  84. As always the liberal left uses statics that don’t hold up in the real world.She (Clinton) fails to mention that after Australia confiscated all the firearms that the crime rate skyrocketed in the areas of murder,rape,home invasions and hold ups.She also failed to mention that Australia is slowly letting private citizens begin to arm themselves again as a result of this.She should brag about Chicago and their low crime rate with Emmanual running the show.She should also read the F.B.I crime statics to get a better picture of the crime rate in this country and how it relates to law abiding gun owners.

  85. Notice Hillary like usual doesn’t tell the whole story but maybe she hasn’t informed herself on the whole story. Like Benghazi she makes bad decisions based on bad intel, traits like this one is what she brings to the plate when she arrives at the white house.

  86. Lets take a closer look at Australia—-Australian Gun Law Update

    After the first 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.
    The first year results are now in:
    Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
    Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
    Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
    In the state of Victoria alone,….. homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.(Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!)
    While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the first 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed. There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.
    Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in ‘successfully ridding
    Australian society of guns….’ You won’t see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.
    The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.

  87. Sure Hillary….. Every person who plans to use their gun for devious and illegal purposes will scrap their plans and sell you the guns !!!! HA One of the problems with this country is that it’s leaders and politicians are way out of touch with reality……Why not just offer the same buyback program to all the world militants and extremist . I am sure they would gladly do that. better yet ….buyback all the rogue nations nukes!!!! All the world problems have just been solved!!!LOL

  88. Here’s the facts; Australia’s gun confiscation did nothing but raise the crime rates and this is what she thinks is worth copying for the USA. 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own
    government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.

    The first year results are now in:
    Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
    Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
    Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
    In the state of Victoria…..alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.(Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!)
    While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady
    decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.. There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.

    Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in ‘successfully ridding Australian society of guns….’

    You won’t see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.

    Take note Americans, before it’s too late!

    FORWARD TO EVERYONE ON YOUR EMAIL LIST.
    Americans have the absolute right to in initiate their own protection and not have to be depend upon a lawless criminal government.
    Every anti gun law passed by legislators denies law abiding citizens of their rights to self-protect and allows criminals another opportunity to disregard their laws? . How absolutely ignorant are our politicians to think we believe one word out of their lying mouths? Taking our guns make criminals more active knowing without guns its only the citizens who become easier prey for them. Criminals DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS Hilary you stupid lying bitch.Mussolini and family’s fate should be mandatory reading for all members of government. Does anyone believe a man named Barrack Hussein Obama is NOT a Muslim sympathizer? The Quran declares a man born of a muslim father – barrack Hussein Obama- is a muslim-period. Only an insane person would give nations screaming “DEATH TO AMERICA” access to nuclear weapons and give them our defense secrets to protect themselves – our enemies – against attacks from Israel. This is a sick situation. Does anyone really believe the lie that a man named Barrack Hussein Obama IS not A Muslim? A, TRAITOR AND MUSLIM SYMPATHIZER. CLEAN THEM ALL OUT.

    1. He is not insane, on the contrary, he is a very sober-thinking, anti-American, pro-Muslim politician. Oh, and BTW, he also is a POTUS.

  89. Well, it appears that a large portion of the liberal left is quite willing and impatient to put a lying, non-convicted murderer into the oval office. After eight years of suffering under one of the dumbest egoists in presidential history, I do not relish turning over the head shed to a she demon from hell who thinks that total hours warming an airplane seat equals great accomplishments.

  90. A nation wide mandatory firearms buy program would simply not work. first of all at least 90% of citizens will not comply, many police agencies will not comply. Even in the liberal state of new york where they only asked their law abiding citizens to register there “assault weapons”, only an estimated 4.5% registered. There is no way millions of people will willingly give up there guns. Which then would lead to house to house confiscation. That would put 100,000 citizens and law enforcement at risk. probably ending up in many many deaths. I honestly don’t think this could ever happen.

  91. The answer to shut down the idealogs is at the ballot box. We are millions strong of responsible legal firearm owners. If you are serious about getting these liberals off our back and defend our rights. VOTE!! Get registered, get informed and get in line at the ballot box!! There is absolutely no reason why we can’t put these issues to bed this election. So get your friends, family and associates on board and post “the get out the vote campaign” in your next comment! Together, lets get out the VOTE!!!

    1. Bpenn,
      I understand and sympathize with your sentiments but in my humble opinion you are deluding yourself if you think this madness can be defeated at the ballot box anymore. At best we are just managing a holding action with our votes at this point. The liberals are well aware of the potential threat they face to their power from the average American voter and they have taken several measures to neutralize that threat. They routinely engage in widespread voter fraud and militantly oppose any efforts to reduce it. They are currently working to import as many new potential supporters of their causes as possible and are doing everything they can to grant the ability to legitimately vote in American elections as possible. Combine these with the efforts to buy as many American voters with extensive “social benefits” (i.e. wealth distribution) and they have laid the foundations for a monolithic voting bloc that will ensure their success at the ballot box for decades to come. I would argue that their current success is largely attributable to similar efforts in the 1930’s. They’re playing the long game and they’re succeeding, much to our great detriment.

  92. That so called woman is crazy if she thinks that she can take away our firearms. How many people are killed by vehicles each year? How many babies are murdered by planned parenthood each year. The dems have orgasmic reactions every time a crazy person kills a few people. Why don’t they get on the bandwagon and stop the deaths that are in the thousands.Now don’t get me wrong I feel for the families that have lost loved ones to gun violence and something has to be done. Like checking out people more deeply to see if they have issues that are deadly, but don’t blame the guns Hillary.

  93. I don’t like Hillary Clinton’s ideas on gun control/mandatory buy-back program any more than most American gun owners. I think it totally goes against the 2nd Amendment (which DOES give SANE individual law-abiding American citizens the right to defend themselves, their families and their property).
    On the other hand, as far as the private gun sales or “gun show loop-hole” is concerned, WE, as American gun owners, have a law-abiding Responsibility to make sure that every private gun sale is conducted with someone who intends to purchase and use that firearm in a responsible and legal manner. A background check performed by a local sheriff or police department and paperwork submitted transferring ownership to another person is the VERY LEAST a “responsible gun owner” Should perform. It absolves the seller of responsibility IF the firearm is later used in the commission of a crime. Also, if the firearm is stolen, that owner has the responsibility to inform law enforcement that the firearm is no longer in their possession. The argument that the Federal government “doesn’t need to know” if you have made a private sale or not is showing that you are not willing to be responsible for your property or that you don’t mind being charged with a potential crime that you never committed. The “private sale” you make might be a straw purchase and when that firearm is used to commit a crime might be blamed on you. A responsible law-abiding gun owner should make every effort to keep the public’s perception of private gun ownership at the highest level.

  94. Wanna carry concealed then it is MANDATORY, to buy a permit and in some states you WILL take a class.
    You want to buy a new rifle or pistol then it is “MADATORY “For you to undergo a background check.
    By agreeing to the check and asnswering every question in a positive light and then signing it under penalty of perjury for any false statements, you are now signing what we freemen fought against through courts in 50’s and 60’s with true freedom fighters i,iberal hippys, an illegal Loyalty Oath.
    We won but the great generations kids got strained through 400 thread count sheets and pissed our victory away.
    Under Mussollin’s Fascist Italy, they had a Constitution with elected and appointed persons and no matter the lies of Germans undr Hitler they never resisted their oen brand of Fascism either, the peoples embraced it and the young men went waving flags and killing millions as folks back home cheered and industrial educTional and political figures made millions.
    Do not expect any mentaly fat american will ever do more than cry as did Grown Brits and Aussies, because they live in fear of not keeping a pension if they dare try resisting gov tyrrany.
    HELL those loudmoth of gun world cannot seem to count higher than two for the sure as f never show up to resist gov when it destroys any persons civil rights.
    A violation against one mans Rights is a violation against all our arights. NOPE LOTS OF TALK BUT IF IT TAKES MORE THAN A KEY BOARD OR VOTING FOR SOMEONE WHO IS A WORTHLESS F WHO CAN ONLY MAKE A LIVING WORKING IN GOV OR POLITICS THEY ARE BUT DEFLATED MEN.

  95. Heterosexual marriage is not in the Constitution. Neither is tax-exempt status for a bunch of superstitious, bigoted acolytes of a mythical haploid zombie.

    Your arguments are the stuff of 2nd graders. You should have paid more attention back then, or were you homeschooled? In the case of the latter, that would explain a lot.

  96. @Steve b: says the “Oath Keeper” who has admitted on these CTD threads that he would NOT defend against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, the Establsihment Clause, which is the very FIRST part of the very FIRST sentence of the very FIRST AMENDMENT to the CONSTITUTION.

    You like to skip that part. I get that. Which is why your “oath” is as hollow as your strained intellect. As is much of these seditious posts by the same kinds of groupthink.

    Pathetic. What now, bitches?

  97. Mrs. Clinton is not only entitled to her opinion as a right to free speech but may expect a reasonable defense of of that Right to express herself.
    That said….
    She is wrong in formulating her political adgenda based on the undermining of the Bill of Rights (not just the Second Amendment) and further dividing the nation. Her vision is short sighted and based entirely on a politically motivated goal at the expense of this nation. Anarchists exist on both sides of the coin, as do traitors. It’s all about point of view. However, the battle will be won or lost not on name calling or posturing but by the ACTION that WE take to defeat her and those like her on ELECTION DAY. She will receive not vote from this household and no vote of confidence for any further government post she may attempt to
    hold.
    From all that I’ve seen, my opinion is that Mrs Clinton has proven to be an outright lier, a dishonest public servent, an oath breaker, and not worthy of The People’s support or confidence. To many half truths, to much deception, far to many misdirections.
    Such a mind set should not be allowed to become the leader of this Nation let alone the Free World. Such a political adgenda does not see the world as Free and view this nation and culture as nothing more than a stepping stone to personal power.
    NO MORE!! VOTE!! That’s where your power is!!

  98. Just saying if she was somehow elected (knock on wood) and somehow got congress to give the green light to this bill she would wake up the next morning with thousands and thousands of gun supporters at her doorstep

  99. OK…where are all the anti-gunners that always say…”They aren’t coming for your guns”…”Nobody wants to take your guns”…etc. ?
    Better start with the criminals and thugs first…

  100. Exactly what the founding fathers warned us would happen.
    Mandatory gun buyback would be funded with tax dollars supplied by gun owners, sooo you would be paying for your own guns again, only this time the govt keeps them.
    Guess it makes sense to the Liberal Democrat mindset

  101. These fools don’t seem to understand that when they vote for a politician who calls for a major violation of the Bill of Rights they are opening Pandora box, today the second, tomorrow the first then the rest, Treason is treason and calling for gun confiscation is treason.

    If it’s passed I will not obey if they come for them I will fight as sooner or later the rest will and in the end they can not win.

  102. Like Jug Ears, Mrs Happy Pants wants to disassemble the constitution by executive edict.

    Can you say “TREASON” and grasp the established historically applied penalties for such actions…?

    1. EXACTLY!!!! What the hell is wrong with these MORONS, and why aren`t our Republican leaders that WE voted in doing something about these treasonous bastards?????

    2. The correct terminology for ruling by edict is “tyranny ” . Last5 person to do this was King George ! The constitution was clear on the fact that the people should have the means to resist a tyrannical gov’t , which was the foundation of the 2nd amendment . That would mean having military equivalent , and the right to self protection ! The fact that the power elite in Washington have no regard for the constitution is evident ! There are 100million gun owners in America , very few commit crimes , yet they are be puniched , as if by some miracle , criminals will turn in theirs! The last I heard was that violent crime in Australia was up 70% ! It is against the law to own a gun in Mexico ! How’s that working ?

  103. First, I own a significant number of guns, hunt, etc; don’t support a buy back program, and don’t support Hillary Clinton.

    I also have learned over the years not to underestimate your opposition no matter how much you dislike them and their policies. Finally, I’ve learned not to lie to yourself.

    Until the 60’s the 2nd Admentment was interperted as the right of State Milita to bear arms, not individuals. Not a big deal back then. The point is it wouldn’t take a Constitutional Admendment to change it back to that view. The Supreme Court could do it. Given the next President will most likely nominate a number of Supreme Court Judges that is a real possibility if Hillary is elected. Given the Republicans seem to always pick an unelectable candidate that is also a real possibility.

    What is the solution? Don’t stick your head in the sand; don’t elect Hillary; and support reasonable gun control like a national gun owners license similar to Canada that has limited effect on legal gun owners. Otherwise the non-gun owning public is going to eventually turn against us. If they do no amount of lobbyists and political money will help us.

  104. Gun laws in Australia
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Part of the Politics series
    Gun laws by country
    Australia

    Gun laws in Australia became a political issue in the 1980s. Low levels of violent crime through much of the 20th century kept levels of public concern about firearms low. In the last two decades of the century, following several high profile multiple murders and a media campaign, the Australian government coordinated more restrictive firearms legislation with all state governments.

    A common misconception is that firearms are illegal in Australia and that no individual may possess them. Although it is true that Australia has restrictive firearms laws, rifles and shotguns (both of which include semi-automatics), as well as handguns, are all legal within a narrow set of criteria.

    As of 2015 about 815,000 people had a gun licence in Australia and there were around 3.5 to 5.5 million Registered Firearms in Australia. Most people own and use firearms for purposes such as hunting, controlling feral animals, collecting, security work, and target shooting.

  105. Australia is a good example.
    Crime went way up and the people were even more pissed than when they lost their guns.
    HUGE FAILURE!

  106. Too bad we can’t get someone to buy her back. In fact, we’d even give her back. The gun buy back was tried once before and it didn’t change anything. The criminals received money for guns, and the money they received bought them better weapons over the Saturday night specials they turned in for money. The state thought they were doing a very good service, while the criminals got the last laugh!

  107. I don’t think that the democrats and leberals realize that firearm confiscation will not work in the United States. Firearms are necessary for the protection of everything in the constitution, and for protection from a tyrannical government. If someone wants my guns, they are in for a fight.

    1. Every. Pro Gun individual stand up for your rights of the 2nd amendment we give up our guns you give up the right to live free.Because someone with a mental problem does not makes us all crazy.Hillary you need to spend some time on the gun range.and then up in and Bill could have a contest.And think about.. Bingazy and what you didn’t Do.

  108. Clinton is worth 100million dollars. Lie cheat and steal is her motto and there are enough idiots out there who believe the garbage

  109. My considered thoughts would be to conclude that whomsoever wanted to take my legally owned guns away from me would necessarily be a criminal who also wanted to take my cars, cash, computers, tv.s, all without any resistance from me, since I’d be unarmed.

  110. Doesn’t she realize there would be another “civil war” that would start if this was done? Why doesn’t she move to Australia and become a “down under” politician” ? I consider her statement bowing down to the Communists and Socialists of the world…….which by the way…..has never “worked”!

  111. I would prefer a MANDATORY EXPANDED BACKGROUND CHECK , LOYALTY TEST, AND PSYCH EVALUATION for all politidcians, bureaucrats and Judges FIRST!

    Can’t pass ALL, then instant removal for office and PUBLIC INVESTIGATIONS into their past. Including off-shore financial holdings.

  112. If…if…if…if…if. Gawd, y’all are sad. The Constitution will not be suspended under President Hilary any more than it has under any other President since the beginning of the Republic. Jeebus Haploid Christ, you folks are paranoid and dangerous. Stay in and post to conspiracy sites and stay out of society.

    1. Being concerned over radical confiscation is no paranoid dream dude, it happened in Australia,,,and if she is elected the mere threat will cause gun hoarders to buy and hide even more,,it will not happen in the US,,,,and if any one Presidents attempt this, it will be a rebellion he/she will not want to face on her clock.

    2. Her own comments were that she is going to try and work around congress to enact gun control. George Washington said that guns are for protection of the people from an abusive government. If you disarm the people then the government can do whatever it wants with no way for the people to fight back. Hitler, Stalin, Ghadaffi, Al Assad. Can you guess what each one of these leaders did? Disarm the people so that they could do whatever the hell they wanted. Wake up to what is happening around you and realize that people deserve the the right to defend themselves, their family and people they care about from any person or entity that would dare to do them harm.

    3. Confiscation ? Going to be hard to confiscate guns they dont know about or track ! They want to take guns away from lawful possessors , who purchased said weapons to protect themselves from the evil doers who aren’t supposed to have weapons ( but still poses weapons illegally ) ! Take weapons from me and mine , to leave me without a way to defend myself from someone who’s not legally allowed to poses a firearm ( but does anyway , because he’s a CRIMINAL ) , thanks .

    1. Nope…how about 3X that.
      Will be worth a LOT more on the black market.
      And don’t give up your ammo or spare parts cheap, either.

  113. What she is not telling Americans is that Australia’s crime has increased over 300% since taking their guns. The new FBI report for 2014-2015 is guns sales in America has went up 300% and violent crimes murders and home invasions has decreased 20% and has been decreasing for the past 10 years.

    1. Why by this point in time WE THE PEOPLE know that the libturds will not tell the full story. Only the part that would make them look like a genius and then and this is only a fairytale statement, the media will let them know there is egg on their faces.

  114. There are over 80 million firearms out there.
    We already have an 18 trillion dollar debt.
    If we were to get a fair price for our property, where is this money coming from?
    Like I would sell my Constitutional rights to her anyway. They’re not for sale. A whore like Hillbillary really wouldn’t get it.
    “Mandatory” buy back? Nice way to say confiscation.

    1. You really do not have the first clue about the process of amending the Constitution, do you? Yet you are quite sure you are correct in all of your inane assumptions.

      You are the very definition of the Dunning-Kruger Voting Bloc TM). Thank you for reinforcing scientific evidence.

    2. Hi Tominator. No one is talking about “amending the Constitution. Hillary, with her “mandatory” buy back is just proposing”violating” the Constitution.
      I was just being facetious about selling my Constitutional rights, as I wouldn’t sell my firearms by an Unconstitutional order.
      Inane assumptions? No. Just worded in a way that you didn’t get it.
      Who’s Dunning and Kruger?

    3. And YOU Tominator, need to pull your left-leanin’, progressive head out of your arse and wake up to the fact that there ARE those who would totally bypass the Constitution to achieve their ends. Killary Klinton is as crooked as they come and she WOULD go around the Constitution if elected. Obammy-whacko has already tried it…”I have a pen and a phone”…remember?

    4. Your comment makes no sense. Hillary wants to confiscate all guns to only her storm troopers would have guns.
      A ‘buy back’ program makes the assumption that the gun belonged to the government in the first place.

    5. Gay marriage isn’t in the constitution and neither is the “right” of a woman to “choose”. Plenty of people interpret the constitution in disparate ways. Saying that you are against confiscation of firearms isn’t inane and neither is the understanding that it can happen without changing the constitution. You just need a few more liberal judges on the SC and it’s over. Do you have any idea who puts judges onto the Supreme Court?

  115. Sure, hold gun manufacturers liable for product misuse…when you hold auto manufacturers liable for their product misuse, and bicycle companies, and food companies, & on & on……

  116. When ANYONE proposes something that goes against the US Constitution they have already shown they have NO intention of following their Oath of Office. That is TREASON!

    “The duty imposed upon [the president] to take care, that the laws be faithfully executed, follows out the strong injunctions of his oath of office, that he will ‘preserve, protect, and defend the constitution.’ The great object of the executive department is to accomplish this purpose; and without it, be the form of government whatever it may, it will be utterly worthless for offence, or defense; for the redress of grievances, or the protection of rights; for the happiness, or good order, or safety of the people.” — Joseph Story, (US Supreme Court Justice) in 1833 “Commentaries on the Constitution”

    “Tyranny is the exercise of some power over a man, which is not warranted by law, or necessary for the public safety. A people can never be deprived of their liberties, while they retain in their own hands, a power sufficient to any other power in the state.” – Noah Webster

    “The right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against the tyranny which… historically has proven to be always possible.” – US Senator Hubert Humphrey (D)

    1. US Army (Retired) – First of all, thank you for your service. One thing I continually wonder about is this: During Hurricane Katrina there was a city-wide order by New Orleans Police Superintendent Eddie Compass to local police, U.S. Army National Guard soldiers, and Deputy U.S. Marshals to confiscate all civilian-held weapons. Thankfully, the Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act of 2006 was passed to prohibit seizure of lawfully held firearms during an emergency. However, if Hillary was elected president and ordered an illegal mandatory firearms confiscation to be conducted by the military, how do you think our men in uniform would react? As a veteran, do you think think they would blindly follow orders? Would many of them resist? These are men who have sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States. I would think many of them would question an order that obviously was unconstitutional. How do you think our military would react if given an order to illegally confiscate firearms? I’d like to hear the opinion of all veterans who read this blog.

    2. You need to go back and re-read the DRPPA of 2006. It states that firearms shall not be confiscated from any area that has been DECLARED a Federal disaster area and is receiving disaster relief. All a crooked Pres. and Congress has to do is delay declaring the disaster area and the cops/National Guard/Army/U.N. troops/whomever can go about confiscating all the guns to their hearts’ content. Once again what was written to gull the gullible is not what it appears. Your guns ARE NOT secure from seizure by government. Anything passed by Congress is not what it appears. You must read the actual wording of anything they pass to see how they have taken your freedoms or your money.

    3. Mike nTexas,
      If I recall, there was some discussion about the exact wording in the Obamacare law. It didn’t seem to matter when it came down to the Supreme Court. Said the wording was , I think was the term. Meaning the exact wording could be translated differently.

    4. As a veteran who was proud to serve, and as a father of awesome children who have elected to serve as well, I’m conflicted. Do I follow orders from an ill informed commander in chief? The oath that I took, which by the way, has no expiration date, states the following : “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” “…obey the orders of the President…” is where there’s a problem! Either I follow the orders, or my oath isn’t worth anything….. decisions, decisions….

    5. The CAVEAT is LAWFUL ORDERS!! Any order that COUNTERMANDS or USURPS the constitution is in fact an UNLAWFUL ORDER and should not be obeyed!!

    6. I’m sure some of the military upper echelon may try to issue the order, but you do not have to follow an illegal order which this would be. As a enlisted retiree, and knowing it would be the enlisted men and women would be the ones given said order, I would have to say there’s a slim chance in hell it would be carried out. There are too many military folks that own firearms and they aren’t giving theirs up either.

    7. Again, US Army, thank you for your service. I for the life of me, do not understand and cannot understand how the current “administration” is getting away with their actions which are totally against the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. They did, in fact, take an oath to defend and abide by the CONSTITUTION and they are doing everything they can to destroy both the CONSTITUTION and this great nation. It is well beyond my train of thought and reasoning how they have buffaloed the people (and I don’t give a rats behind which party they are associated with) into believing that the “administration” will take care of them. HORSEFEATHERS!!! The “administration” will turn against every living person in the country! I truly hope and pray that our military will stand for what is right and it sure ain’t the crap the libturds are throwing our way.

    8. I may not be military personel….my life took me a different path…..but my brother was an ARMY infantry soldier 11Bravo and i have many other friends and family in the service and I can say that not one of them or any other soldier would ever do something like this our soldiers can actually think for them selves and would never go kicking down doors In our country just to take guns away from citizens

    9. Not a veteran but my father is.From talking to him I think that the older and more experienced soldiers would not follow an unlawful order,but the problem is there are a lot of real young soldiers in the military.Guys who are thrill seekers that are there for their own reasons and not for the honor and patriotism of serving and defending our country.I beleive these guys would blindly take weapons of honest citizens and kill them if they resist and enjoy it.Lets just hope that the people who lobby congress can give them enough money to try to block any crazy laws that these anti gun nuts try to pass.

    10. I am a U.S. Army Infantry combat veteran of Viet Nam. I took the oath to “…uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC, ….” twice — first as an enlisted man, and again as a commissioned officer. I have never recanted the oath and, as it is said, there is no expiration date attached to it. Further, I am of a family which has been military at least as far back as the Civil War. These being my bonafides, I would like to make a few comments regarding the “will they or won’t they” question.

      Some time ago, I read a blog written by a gentleman associated with a group called, if I remember correctly, the “Sipsey Street Irregulars”. In it, he stated that the military is made up of our husbands and wives, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends and neighbors. That being the case, it is very unlikely they would participate in the oppression of their own people. That is reassuring — as far as it goes.

      Unfortunately, tyrannical, and would-be tyrannical, regimes have known for centuries, that if you wish to suppress/oppress/control a group of people, or a region, whatever, you do not use home-grown troops. You send them far away, and bring in “foreign” troops — people who have no personal, cultural, ethnic, etc., ties to the target people or region. This technique was used widely in Eastern Europe and Asia in the 20th Century. It has also been used in this country.

      Reference is often made to the use of the National Guard to make forcible entry into peoples’ homes, confiscate their weapons, and remove them from their homes in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. What does not seem to have registered, although it has been reported many times by diverse sources, is that it was not the Louisiana National Guard, but National Guard units from the Midwest. A Kansas farm boy is not likely to have a great deal of empathy for a resident of “decadent” New Orleans, Louisiana. (I realize that there is a certain amount of “type-casting”, if you will, in that statement, but that is the operative principle.)

      Another thing. I have read numerous stories lately, of an ongoing program to remove from the military services, those officers and senior non-commissioned officers who take seriously the duty and obligation they assumed when they took their oath. No longer being in the service, I cannot address the validity of those stories. But, I shudder to think of a military which holds its oath to “…uphold and defend the Constitution….” in the same lack of regard as so many politicians, up to and including Mr. Obama.

      “Will they or won’t they?” I’m afraid we won’t really know until the time comes. And, I am afraid that it is coming. I do not expect to survive it.

    11. The best personal defense aid is equitable or superior to whatever may be used against me, you, or us!!!!!. One might want to ask or consider the reasons why so many settlers fled Europe or their other homelands? The 2nd amendment was ratified to ensure the public would be equipped to fight against an army (British generally at that time) and to ensure the greedy whims of the monarchy would have no power in the new world.

      The purpose of the 2nd amendment was to ensure the wealthy didn’t tyrannize and take advantage of the poor to the point of war or revolution in which you-know-who loses and remains or becomes enslaved. It’s only a matter of time before history repeats itself in this young nation as it did so many times “across the pond”, and the framers knew this.

      Since the Bill of Rights was written Crony Capitalist monopolies have been growing. They didn’t acquire their wealth through philanthropy; they are definitely out to get us and that’s not paranoia, it’s just a simple fact of life. Now, lobby groups generally promote interests of the 1% whom basically own the government in a progressively increasing and obvious way.

      When government officials rely on corporations for their career’s stability, and that when these corporations decide they’re capable and ready to enslave the masses (including those government officials), will you/me/we have the personal defense aids necessary to defend our freedom in this modern technological age, or will you/me/we be stuck with rusty armor?”

      We go back to the simple question of “What part of “shall not be infringed” do they not understand”. Any law restricting ownership of any firearm written since 1791 is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

      Taking my gun away because I might shoot someone is like cutting my tongue out because I might yell `Fire!’ in a crowded theater.

      Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

  117. Clinton is a typical Liberal liar and anti-American Nazi. I refuse to refer to her by her first name. She is what she is.

    She could never force a confiscation scheme here and get away with it unless the police and military all fall in behind her. Even if they did, it would be a bloody mess. That would be a sad way for the greatest country on Earth to end, because it would destroy the country. You know as well as I do that entire counties and even states would rebel.

    1. Mikial – I read your comment AFTER I responded to US Army (Retired). I agree with your comments about HRC, and that this country would be a mess. However, if the big brass in the military refused a firearms confiscation order from the “Commander in Chief”, it could severely weaken her presidency and maybe even lead to her downfall. One can only hope. Of course the liberal lefty socialists would run to her aid, but if the military revolted against her, she would be in a heap of trouble.

    2. I agree that Clinton is a typical liberal liar though she isn’t lying about her wanting to seize all privately held weapons. An contrary to what several comments have said about the Army supporting the U.S. Constitution I suspect the ordinary soldiers, those who would have to enforce such an order, would follow orders and confiscate all weapons and shoot to kill anyone who did not willingly give up their weapons. That is because their alternative would be jail for not obeying orders. There would, of course, be a few soldiers and even, maybe, a few police that would honor the U.S. Constitution and refuse the confiscation order regardless of the consequences to themselves but I suspect those numbers would be very small. And as implied by my earlier statements they’d be quickly eliminated or jailed for insubordination. Her statement is a declaration of war against the U.S. Constitution. Obama has set the stage and now she makes it clear she will lead the attack on the Constitution and Bill of Rights. This is not good and I fear her declaration if enforced could easily lead to civil unrest. No U.S. citizen should passively allow his Constitutional rights be impinged. Now is the time to stand up to those that want to take away your rights. Only a strong stand up against these people will stop them before they set off something as bad or worse than anything we’ve seen yet probably including nationwide protests, riots and/or worse. Six members of my family stood against the British in the late disagreement between them and us who became the U.S. Hopefully HRC isn’t starting something similar…. then of course, most Americans don’t stand for much of anything now days. But we really need to make clear that the U.S. Constitution and the rights it and the Bill of Rights guarantee are a holy writ to some of us.

    3. Licensing- taking away your rights then selling them back to you

      When the SHTF to think I care about whether or not I am in compliance with some non-constitutional administrative ruling will be the least of my concerns, I will be focused on center mass, maintaining fire discipline, and assessing immediate threat vectors!

      I want to make one thing perfectly clear, yes I am a Christian, and yes I carry a gun. One might think I carry a gun because I don’t trust God. Well you would be wrong. I have complete faith in my Lord; it’s an oppressive government that believes it has the right to dictate what I can and cannot have, can and cannot think or say, can and cannot eat or drink etc., I have no trust in!

  118. Hillary Clinton couldn’t “mandate” gun buy-backs any more than GW Bush could enact reasonable immigration policy. This discredited argument is just another non-starter from within the Bubble of Bigoted Buffoonery that knows nothing of how to govern a nation. But don’t let facts stand in the way of another idiotic conspiracy theory. It hasn’t yet.

  119. Just exactly what does the Constitution, have to due with “A Gun Buy-Back Program”. It’s NO Different than a Gun Buyer at a Gun Show, Buying a Gun.

    1. It’s the MANDATORY part that is unconstitutional !!!

      “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” — Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759.

    2. @ Force Rcon Marine.

      The US. Constitution, was written in 1789 and revised in 1992. Your quoiting from a Historical Review, written some 30 years earlier. How does it apply.

  120. It is hard telling were Hillary is going with all this. Recent news photos show her wearing a “hijab.” So she may identify with the Muslim population in this country. Then in this meeting she proposes gun confiscation. Yet intelligence date is showing the Muslim are against gun control and confiscation. The Muslims are wanting to arm themselves. Just like they did in the Middle East. Their favorite weapon of choice was an AK47, which is readily available to them overseas.
    One thing for sure she needs to be voted out.

  121. I will never give up my weapons. EVER. I would like to hear from the Liberals to my proposal to require a photo ID to vote. Maybe after having to show an ID we can make them bring a BIRTH Certificate to prove they are a true American, and not an illegal immigrant. I also do know that these illegals who get a Drivers License which is considered a privledge ( as opposed to gun rights that are “rights” in which shall not be infringed upon by the Government) can and WILL be registered to vote immediately. California, New Mexico, and at least five or six other states that are embracing the illegal immigrants “RIGHTS” to drive( and vote) AMAZING.

    1. Illegal ALIEN’S have broken into our house and one dimensional MORNIC regressive lieberals say they deserve keys to the house, the car, free health care free education welfare food stamps and they have the right to our paychecks ~ There is a difference between charity and stupidity!!!! Anyone not realizing this FACT should be institutionalized !!!

      Now let’s see if I have this right!!!

      If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years hard labor if you’re lucky, if not you’re charged with espionage and executed as a spy!!!

      If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely and Kerry Øb☭ma Hitlery ETAL will NOT negotiate for your freedom but instead provide Iran a clear path to nuclear weapons which they will undoubtedly use on US while Iran gives nothing in return!!!!

      If you cross the Afghan border illegally, you get shot, while ODUMBO negotiates with the Taliban Giving them Five Generals for ONE POS Deserter!!.

      If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally you will be jailed whipped and if you are a woman subjected to genital mutilation.

      If you cross the Chinese border illegally you are sent to a labor camp and may never be heard from again.

      If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally you will be branded a spy and your carcass will be dragged in the street.

      If you cross the Cuban border illegally you will be thrown into political prison to rot while the Cuban government is cozy with ODUMBO and receives US recognition and “assistance” while giving up nothing in return!!

      If you cross the U.S. border illegally you get; a job (if you want one), a drivers license, social security card, welfare, food vouchers, credit cards, subsidized rent or a loan to buy a house, free education, free health care, a lobbyist in DC billions of dollars worth of public documents printed in your language, the right to carry your country’s flag while you protest that you don’t get enough respect and, in many instances, you can vote.

      I just wanted to make sure I had a firm grasp on the situation!!!

      It’s time to wake up America and stop the “Stupidity, Apathy and this INANE and DANGEROUS Political Correctness ”

      Here is a good example on how one dimensional regressive lieberals force their politically Correct agenda on others. I will use the old adage of “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink” To prove this adage incorrect one dimensional regressive lieberals will gang up on the horse having as many as possible hold the horse’s head under water while the rest take turns sucking on its ass!!

    2. What does this have to do with gun rights??? Sound like your just butching about immigrants taking resources stay on topic.

  122. If we make it through the 2016 Election and Hitlery wins…if she pulls this BS she will need to leave the Country or head to one of the Gov’s underground bases, because she will have brought on the 2nd Civil War, and we all know who “We the People” will go after first..!!!

  123. Leave it to a “progressive” to be so regressive to ignore little things like the freaking constitution!!!

    Scratch the painfully thin skin of a progressive like Oblamer or Hitlery and you find a fascist.

    1. Project much? Have you ever read an accurate definition of fascism? Rampant nationalism, religious domination by the state, corporate power unchecked by The People’s representatives, etc etc etc. All that is owned by the scientifically and historically illiterate right wingers in the US right now. It could pass, but I don’t see reason and logic coming up in those circles anytime soon.

      The Constitution is intact. Everyone who knows anything of civics knows that the Constitution would have to be changed, and that it takes an act of CONGRESS to do that. Look at this Congress: it ain’t happening. But don’t let that fact stand in the way of seditious conspiracy theories involving insurrection and itchy trigger fingers. When so-called “Oath Keepers” refuse to defend against all enemies, both foreign and especially domestic, the very first part of the very first sentence of the very FIRST Amendment to the Constitution, aka The Establishment Clause, they are incapable of graduating to the 2nd Amendment and the liberties that one entails.

    2. Words have meanings! If those meanings are bastardized all becomes chaos.

      Definition of to KEEP: to hold or retain in one’s possession; hold as one’s own.

      Definition of to BEAR: to carry, transmit, transport, have a characteristic of and exhibit.

      Definition of INFRINGE: to “encroach” upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another.

      THIS IS THE WORD MOST FORGOTTEN……INFRINGE!!!!!

      Read the meaning!!!
      Definition of ENCROACH:
      1: to enter by gradual steps or by stealth into the possessions or rights of another.
      2: to advance beyond the usual or proper limits

      BE HONEST…see anything like this going on? Everyone needs to LEARN the English language. Why is this so hard to understand? The meaning of the words in the Second Amendment HAVE NOT changed since the amendment was ratified. I am NOT aware of the Second Amendment being repealed or amended.

      In reference to arms control by the states, the Fourteenth Amendment Section 1 is crystal clear:

      Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. NO STATE shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

      Many politicians and/or judges cite “precedent” as a justification for the violations of our rights as contained in The Constitution of These United States of America.

      Precedent only describes what has been done, NOT if it was done in compliance with the supreme law of the land or in accordance with the oath of office to uphold The Constitution.

    3. “Read the meaning!!!
      Definition of ENCROACH:
      1: to enter by gradual steps or by stealth into the possessions or rights of another.

      You mean like the illiterate Teavangelical Religious Right has, with the copious assistance of the 5 Catholics on the SCOTUS, interjected religion into a secular government. Yes, this fits the definition of ENCROACH, and it is doing so against the Very first part of the VERY first sentence of the VERY first Amendment to the beloved Constitution. Yes? Yes.

      Encroached on gun owners? No. No new laws have been enacted, but a plethora of old ones have been rescinded, which is why there are insane, card-carrying NRA Lobbying nutjobs ruining everything for everybody. That’s the FACTS.

      “2: to advance beyond the usual or proper limits”
      Ditto. (So you won’t have to read any more than your mind can grasp.)

      Thanks for quoting the 14th Amendment, too. That clearly states that kids—no matter their skin color—are US citizens if born on US soil. So why is it that the illiterate Teabillies who want to abolish the 14th Amendment get your support and not those who uphold the document legally? Never mind. Dunning-Kruger voters are hopeless.

    4. Hey Tomato Head- I got my degree in Shakespearean Literature with a minor in Bernard Shaws writing..Want to call me illiterate? For kicks became a Flight Instructor,ran a successful business and retired very comfortably. So big shot what have You done? besides reading comic books.And yes I am a Life Member of the NRA and always been EXTREMELY proud of this blessed Nation

    5. @ US Army (retired).

      The Oxford Dictionary used was published in 1690. Ninety-nine years before the US. Constitution was written. And the US. Constitution is based on the English Constitution of 1689, with some words changed.

    6. The Constitution can also be ignored genius. The left is good at it. You have impressed no one but yourself.

    7. There is no one on “the left” ignoring the First Amendment. The “Oath Keepers”, on the other hand, have, does and will continue to ignore it. They have said so here at CTD.

      What now, Oather?

    8. Hey genius if you think the left has not ignored the 1st Amendment perhaps you should pay a little more attention to politically correct speech requirements of the left.
      Lenin called you people Useful Idiots and he was dead on. Troll on Moron.

    9. Yo wish. I am a long-time, paying customer of CTD. Likely much longer than you have been, Texas Free.

      My “life” involves pointing out and calling out injustice against thinking, educated citizens and the Constitution. If you are party to those who would abolish the Establishment Clause; promote sedition against the USA and its Constitution; or otherwise show what an a** an “Oath Keeper” is, then I am your enemy.

      But I am not a troll. Failed that one, too, bud.

    10. He sure gives the impression that he is against everything that supports our Constitutional rights of Free Speech and Second Amendment. He sounds more like a dumbocRat “plant” as he puts down the TEA Party, Oath Keepers, and NRA. When the SHTF, his “Own” slime balls will stab him in the back, and he better have a game plan and lots of ammo. The Liberal DumbocRats will see him as one of us patriots and slaughter him too. Tominator seems very confused as to where his “loyalties” should be. Ok, yea, and a troll. Just because he buys ammo from CTD “probably longer than you have” means he is just an “extremist” Liberal I guess. And always feeling the need to put someone down to make himself feel “bigger” ( just an observation from all his posts here.

    11. @Tominator

      “All that is owned by the scientifically and historically illiterate right wingers in the US right now. It could pass, but I don’t see reason and logic coming up in those circles anytime soon.”

      That’s an interesting characterization of Conservatives when the primary power base of the Left consists of semi-literate, multi-generational welfare recipients who provide the voting base, and wealthy Liberal elitists (“corporate power unchecked”) who support people like the Clintons though massive donations in return for favors at the expense of the American people. Can you possibly sit there and try to say that gun confiscation isn’t being attempted, and in some cases achieved, in Liberal run states like New York and Connecticut.?

      Quite frankly, you should stick to posting on Tumblr. You’ll find the adolescents there much more gullible and Liberal.

    12. @Mikial: Can you name one instance when the Big Ol’ Bad Gubmint snatched a gun away from a law-abiding, responsible gun owner in the during the Obama administration?

      No.

      What about the Clinto administration?

      No.

      Anytime in the past 50 years?

      No.

      Stop projecting and exit the Bubble of Bigoted Buffoonery.

    13. @Tominator. You asked for examples of Gun confiscation during the OBAMBA administration? Here is one great big example. Veterans, thousands of returning vets are being told that since they go to Psych doctors, who say they have PTSD, they are being denied the RIGHT to purchase or posses weapons once the see a doctor which, conveniently gives them the PTSD diagnosis. And the Liberal Lefties, supported by the GRAND Tyrant Moa heir OBAMBA, who concide rs any Veteran, Oath Keeper, NRA member, Christian ( Bible thumper), prepper , militia, TEA Party member, etc, the ENEMY. If you disagree with these TRUTHS, you are delusional. I will not get into a name calling frenzy, but these are very clearly the focus of our Oath breaking treasonous Government officials and it includes most Democrats and quite a few Republican Establishment folks(RINOs). Repealing the Second Amendment is closer than most know. OBAMBA may try, but I think he doesn’t believe in our Constitution as Muslimes and the Constitution are not compatible. Prove me wrong. Thank you

    14. If you want a vision of a one dimensional regressive socialist lieberal future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever

  124. Alright! PeePaw got his picture on TV! Hope I don’t live long enough to see mandatory buy backs. Or turn into a feeble old butt smoocher like this old geezer.

  125. If it’s mandatory it’s not really a buy-back program. If I’m not being given a choice about participating then it’s confiscation.

    1. @ USPatriotOne.

      WHEN? They been calling 2nd Civil War. For the better part of 7-Years Now. All BS, No Substance.

  126. I guess Hillary like many other liberals doesn’t realize that the average American Gun owner is not going to cooperate with anyone whether a buy back is mandatory or not. When asked to register their AR15 type rifles in Conn and NY 85 and 95% of the owners did not do it This was an estimated 2 million people. With violent crime on the decline, firearm and ammunition sales at record levels, and most people obviously fed up with the Federal Government including many local law enforcement and the military, I wish her luck in doing that without starting a civil war.
