Speaking at CNN’s town hall meeting tonight, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lambasted American gun right advocates. “We cannot let a minority of people — and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people — hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.” While she was at it, Ms. Clinton called for an “assault weapons ban,” conflating semi-automatic weapons with fully-automatic weapons as she went . . .
We’re going to have to do a better job protecting the vast majority of our citizens, including our children, from that very, very, very small group that is unfortunately prone to violence and now with automatic weapons can wreak so much more violence than they ever could have before.
I don’t think it needs saying but if Hillary is our next President gun rights will be under threat like never before. And this is coming from a guy who publicly declared that President Obama considering gun control the third rail in American politics. I was wrong before. I hope I’m wrong now.
