“I was just researching in the Clinton Presidential Library archives, and came across a fax from “Deputy Secretary” (of what, is unstated) to Clinton’s Domestic Policy Council,” David Hardy at armsandthelaw.com writes, “relating to settlement terms to demand in the lawsuits against gun manufacturers, which were then being brought by New York, some other jurisdictions, and private plaintiffs, and held the risk of bankrupting the industry.” Thankfully President Bush, the NRA, and Republicans rode to the rescue in 2005 with the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. The Act prohibits lawsuits against gunmakers for negligence when their products are used in a crime. Click here to read a PDF of the Clinton fax, which is scary, scary stuff. Here’s Hardy’s horrifying summary . . .
It lists demands which would have achieved most of the antigun legislative objectives, without the work of getting Congress to agree. One gun a month, gun registration, eliminate non-inventory small FFLs, no guns capable of taking greater than ten round magazines, no sales of greater than ten round magazines, no juveniles allowed on gun dealer premises without a parent or guardian, gun manufacturers to finance a fund to propagandize on the dangers of guns, etc., etc.. And all without asking Congress to pass legislation.
If you think Mrs. Clinton wasn’t on board with all this, think again. If you think the current Democrat presidential candidate wouldn’t use any and all executive power to accomplish these and other restrictions on Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, you forgot that bit about a tiger’s inability to change its stripes. Or you simply haven’t been paying attention to candidate Clinton’s clarion calls for “balance” between gun rights and
civilian disarmament “common sense gun reforms.” But you will if and when Hillary sloughs off her email issues and assumes power, and firearms start flying off the shelves. You have been warned. Again. Still. [h/t TVMR]
