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

Hillary Clinton

The NRA-ILA is a top source for news about issue that could affect our Second Amendment rights. Not that it is much of a surprise, but the Democrat frontrunner has pledged to assault the Second Amendment on day one if elected. As usual, she claims she wants to lower gun violence… by stepping on the throats of gun manufacturers. Hillary Clinton In what has become as reliable as clockwork, with the passing of another week comes another Hillary Clinton attack on gun owners. This time, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination explained to supporters her intent to make an assault on gun rights and NRA one of her top priorities. A video of her comments has been distributed by and can be viewed by clicking here.

Addressing an April 25 MSNBC “townhall” hosted by left-wing commentator Rachel Maddow, Clinton stated,

I really support everything President Obama said he would do through regulation on guns but we’re going to start the very first day and tackle the gun lobby to try to reduce the outrageous number of people who are dying from gun violence in our country.

Later, the candidate spoke of her party’s chances of taking control of the Senate, stating,

The Democrats have decided they will be led by Chuck Schumer and Chuck Schumer has been one of the most effective legislators in taking on the gun lobby. He and I worked together to get the Brady bill passed way back in my husband’s administration. So I think that it’s the kind of issue you have to start early, you have to work on it every day and we need to make it a voting issue.

A visibly agitated Clinton concluded her remarks on the subject by noting,

I’m going to keep talking about it, and we are going to make it clear that this has to be a voting issue. If you care about this issue, vote against people who give in to the NRA and the gun lobby all the time.

These comments make clear that gun owners and NRA would be in Clinton’s crosshairs from the moment she assumes office. And thanks to Clinton’s recent candor, gun owners don’t have to guess at the types of restrictions Clinton has in mind for them. Clinton has supported a ban on popular semi-automatic firearms and endorsed an Australian-style confiscation scheme for carrying out her vision. Clinton has expressed her vehement
opposition to the Right-to-Carry
. Most disturbing, under Clinton’s false interpretation of the Constitution, the Second Amendment does not protect and individual right to keep and bear arms and allows gun bans.

Somewhat of a political pragmatist, Barack Obama waited until he secured a second term before launching most of his efforts to restrict firearm ownership. Hillary Clinton is continually making clear that under her reign gun owners would receive no such reprieve.

This is why NRA members, along with their families and friends, must get involved in our efforts to secure a victory for gun owners this fall. At the bare minimum, gun owners must ensure that they and their loved ones are registered to vote. For those that can contribute more to our fight for freedom, NRA-ILA’s Grassroots Division can connect you with volunteer opportunities anywhere in the country, and NRA has made it easier than ever to participate in our efforts.

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

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

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

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

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