In the video above, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton tells a bunch of financially forthcoming anti-firearms freedom folks that the Supreme Court is “wrong on the Second Amendment.” Mrs. Clinton is saying — force record — that the McDonald decision should be overturned. That landmark ruling “incorporated” Second Amendment protection for the right to keep arms for lawful purposes. And that means that . . .
the Second Amendment trumps local and state laws.
In other words, Mrs. Clinton is promising to once again make American’s gun rights subject to local and state infringement. In still other words, a President Hillary Clinton would work “tirelessly” to enable civilian disarmament. To make her case, Ms. Clinton uses reductio ad absurdum, honing-in on open carry. Like this . . .
These people are passing the most absurd laws. The idea that you could have an open carry permit with an AK-47 over your shoulder walking top and down the aisles of a supermarket is just despicable.
Regular readers will recall that Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America jefe Shannon Watts recently singled-out “supermarket carry” as an example of NRA insanity. Which is far from the truth; supermarkets are regularly robbed, and innocent people are robbed, attacked, kidnapped and raped in store parking lots. Regularly.
Be that as it is, it looks like what TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia have dubbed “Chipotle Ninjas” — open carriers carrying rifles into restaurants and supermarkets — are the new poster boys/lightning rods for the gun control jihadis. Imagine that.
