2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton just made one of the most illogical statements of her career. Speaking at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire earlier this week, Clinton, in referring to the National Rifle Association told the audience:
“Ideally, what I would love to see is gun owners, responsible gun owners, hunters, form a different organization and take back the Second Amendment from these extremists.”
Hello, Mrs. Clinton, do you have any idea of how ridiculous that statement is?
Somehow Clinton has the idea that the majority of responsible and law abiding gun owners in the United States would prefer to roll over and play dead and allow her and others to take our guns away from us.
Does she honestly believe that the vast majority of gun owners support universal background checks on EVERY gun owner and gun buyer in America?
Does she honestly believe that the vast majority of gun owners support limiting the size of ammo magazines a gun can have?
Does she honestly believe that the vast majority of gun owners support banning many styles of firearms including assault, assault-style and semi-automatic weapons?
Does she honestly believe that the vast majority of gun owners support having to report to the federal government when a father or grandfather hands down a gun to a son, daughter, grandson or granddaughter?
Does she honestly believe that the vast majority of gun owners support having the federal government know of every gun they own?
The NRA and Gun Owners of America have been two of the strongest supporters of the Second Amendment. If it weren’t for them and their powerful lobbying, liberals like Clinton and Obama would have stripped Americans of all of their Second Amendment rights long ago. Had it not been for the NRA, the only guns left in America would be illegally owned guns in the hands of criminals and those of an overly oppressive socialist government. If it wasn’t for the NRA, there wouldn’t be any responsible gun owners left in America.
Like I said, this has to be the most illogical statement ever to come out of the mouth of Hillary Clinton and demonstrates her complete disconnect with the vast majority of Americans.
