Mrs. Clinton has the typical Progressive view of the 2nd Amendment… she hates it, and she thinks gun owners are all short-tempered lunatics just one annoyance away from shooting up a movie theater.
Hillary Clinton on Tuesday offered her most detailed comments on domestic policy in months, calling for tighter gun restrictions while also going to bat for Obamacare and warning that rising economic inequality is contributing to “social collapse.”
… “We have to rein in what has become [an] almost article of faith, that anybody can own a gun anywhere, anytime. And I don’t believe that,” she said.
Clinton, who argued it was possible to hold her position and still support the right to gun ownership, warned that unfettered access to guns could have dangerous consequences.
She painted a dark picture, warning that, “At the rate we’re going, we’re going to have so many people with guns everywhere, fully licensed, fully validated, in settings where [one] could be in a movie theater, and they don’t like someone chewing gum loudly or talking on their cell phone and decide they have the perfect right to defend themselves against the gum chewer or cell phone user by shooting.”
Bear in mind, when Hillary or any Progressive talks about “commonsense gun laws” — they mean that laws in place in Washington DC (Criminal prosecutions for owning fake antique bullets), New York and California (Police allowed to confiscate guns without due process), and Chuck Schumer’s National Gun Law (Federal offense for a father to loan his daughter a gun to defend herself from an abusive boyfriend) don’t go quite far enough in their opinion.
Eventually, their goal is confiscation (which is why they constantly cite Britain and Australia as examples). Every measure they propose is intended as an incremental step in that direction.
