It is well known that Hillary Clinton does not support the Second Amendment. This is why the 2016 presidential election is so critical to our country, and maintaining our Constitutional right to bear arms. In 2014, CNN held a town hall style interview with Hillary. Part of her talking points included claims that those who support the Second Amendment and gun rights are in the minority. She also declared that gun owners are terrorizing Americans. You can see the video here.
Except that there are around 100 million law-abiding gun owners, which is hardly a minority. They are the people keeping our neighborhoods safer. So, why does Hillary hate guns so much? It might be about money.
The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act
The PLCAA says that firearms dealers and manufacturers must be treated like any other consumer product. So, it protects firearms manufacturers and dealers from liability if crimes are committed with their products. Without the law, gun owners and manufacturers would have to face what is called “Legislation by Litigation.” Hillary wants to repeal the PLCAA. Why? Well, if someone steals your gun and murders someone–you, and the gun manufacturer are liable.
If you hurt someone–whether it be accidental or on purpose–you, and your gun manufacturer are liable. So, every accidental death, wounding or suicide might result in a lawsuit. Trial lawyers can pursue gun owners, dealers and manufacturers at any time. To tie it all together, trial lawyers have donated over $7 million to Hillary’s presidential campaign. Why is Hillary always so greedy? She wants that money so bad, she even called gun owners “terrorists.”
During Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, she said this:
I will also work to reinstate the assault weapons ban. We had it during the 1990s. It really was an aid to our police officers, who are now once again, because it has lapsed–the Republicans will not reinstate it–are being outgunned on our streets by these military-style weapons.
In addition, she has mentioned a national firearms registry by stating:
I stand in support of this common sense legislation to license everyone who wishes to purchase a gun. I also believe that every new handgun sale or transfer should be registered in a national registry.
Hillary obviously doesn’t care that many of America’s major cities have become slaughterhouses. She stands against Stop-and-frisk knowing more people will die, then they can blame and sue the gun owners.
In this leaked recording, Hillary tries to stick it to the NRA. She can be heard saying:
I was proud when my husband took [the National Rifle Association]on, and we were able to ban assault weapons, but he had to put a sunset on so 10 years later. Of course [President George W.] Bush wouldn’t agree to reinstate them.
We’ve got to go after this. And here again, the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.
I’m going to speak out, I’m going to do everything I can to rally people against this pernicious, corrupting influence of the NRA and we’re going to do whatever we can.
The idea that you can have an open carry permit with an AK-47 over your shoulder walking up and down the aisles of a supermarket is just despicable.
You can listen to her remarks here:
Hillary is so corrupt. Most massacres occur in gun free zones! Wild Bill for America explains the problem quite well.
