Hillary Clinton Slams AK Open Carry (a.k.a., “Chipotle Ninjas”)

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.

    No difference between her and Trump right?

      NOPE, NOPE, NOPE !!!!!

      Trump can and will be reigned in by a GOP Congress if needed.

      Clinton will be fully supported by a democrat Congress, which she is highly like to get if she wins. The previous 3 presidents all got a Congress to match their party. It’s highly likely a democrat Congress will be even more anti-gun than Hillary. Her SCOTUS appointees will turn the court anti-gun, probably permanently.

      I hope you’re joking. Trump is not perfect on the RTKABA, but when has he ever said anything on the level of these Hillary statements? (not all exact quotes, but pretty close):
      > We should repeal the Second Amendment. It is out of date.
      > I support Brady Bill and closing the Charleston loophole
      > Reverse gun manufacturer immunity; let them get sued
      > Rein in idea that anybody can have a gun anywhere, anytime
      > Give local police access to federal gun tracking info
      > Get assault weapons & guns off the street
      > License and register all handgun sales
      > Lock up guns; store ammo separately
      > Prevent unauthorized firearm use with “smart gun” technology

        I’m done holding my nose to vote for the turd sandwich the Republicans roll out every four years.

        McCain was wrong on how to handle Iraq/Afghan/Gitmo, which was the issue of the day, and he lost.

        Romney was wrong on how to handle healthcare, which was the issue of the day, and he lost.

        If the Republicans can’t find a way to keep the blue states from choosing their candidate, then they deserve to lose. I’m done offering up support to crap. Trump is a bridge too far. We’ll just have to clean up the mess later.

        1. avatar Mr. 308 says:

          I basically agree with everything you are saying, but there are some things about Trump that you can’t ignore.

          He is not the choice the Republican party wants – they wanted Jeb or Rubio, or even Romney again. They even started to look like they were going to settle for Cruz. Trump was pushed on them. This in my mind alone is a great reason to support him.

          And he does things like this;

          https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-escalates-attack-on-bill-clinton/2016/05/23/ed109acc-2100-11e6-8690-f14ca9de2972_story.html

          “He added, “I don’t bring [Foster’s death] up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it. I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don’t do that because I don’t think it’s fair.”

          This is masterful media manipulation, and a direct attack on both Clintons regarding an issue that is very serious. This is a Republican really fighting to win, something we haven’t seen since Reagan.

          This is very different than the campaign played out by Romney – or McCain for that matter. How many times did we see Romney playing weak sauce crap, he never brought up anything really important or damaging against Obama and he could have, he didn’t fight and he lost.

          Trump is different, and it’s refreshing.

          Then there’s this;

          http://www.zombietime.com/inside_the_anti-trump_circus/

          If you haven’t seen it you’ve got to look through Zombie’s pictures. Anyone who pisses off these people to the level they are is doing the right thing. It’s awesome, these anti Trumpers and their signs and angry faces bring a warm feeling to me.

          I fully expect Trump to disappoint, but in the meantime when it comes down to HRC or Trump I have no problem supporting the guy who is doing these things. I say more and faster.

          I am so going to vote Trump.

    Nevermind the fact that much of the AR/AK carrying in public was done in protest of stupid laws that allowed it but not sidearms. The stupidity lies more on the anti’s than the carriers in this case.

    1. avatar Xanderbach says:

      Also- It worked. Texas got open carry. So as a political protest, it was effective.

      1. avatar Rick the Bear (now in NH!!) says:

        That was not my first best activity although it did seem to work.

    2. avatar Renner says:

      …and Obamacare ticked off Conservatives. Do you think the liberals care? We are just as likely to end up with single-payer as we are repealing that monstrosity. Same with firearms. The Chipotle ninjas brought attention to force the issue. Now we will find out which side wants to win the most.

    3. avatar NYC2AZ says:

      That’s something most people don’t want to acknowledge; in criticizing the open carry demonstrations, Hillary is in fact attacking American’s 1st Amendment rights just as much as their 2nd Amendment rights. For anyone paying attention, this is a consistent policy position pushed by the Clintons.

  3. avatar Vhyrus says:

    Because if no one carried aks at Walmart, Hillary would leave us alone… oh wait…well if we just concealed carry they would…. nope not then either…hmm

    Why shouldn’t we carry aks then? They’re gonna hate us either way… might as well have fun with it.

  4. avatar LHW says:

    But, I thought that it was my choice and that the government had no say.

    1. avatar Chip in Florida says:

      I think Clinton and those on her side of the Aisle want to define what choices you have. They will tell you what is allowed and then allow you to choose from the approved choices.

  5. avatar Greg says:

    We know that Clinton’s anti-gun attitudes extend far beyond the open carry of rifles. Given the power to do so, she’d repeal the 2A in a New York minute and attempt to confiscate every civilian firearm in this country. She’s a clear and present danger to liberty.

  6. avatar Stateisevil says:

    Being strongly agains OC is almost always crypto anti gun. Just substitute ” secretly carrying concealed handguns in public is just despicable.”

  7. avatar Brian says:

    really cant stand her

    1. avatar sagebrushracer says:

      it is my fervent hope that she is more repulsive than Trump, and that the voting reflects that.

      hehe, what a choice ehh.

      1. avatar Renner says:

        Are Democrats as upset with their choice as Republicans are with theirs? A moderate independant third party candidate would probably have a better chance than ever this century of winning the presidency.

  8. avatar kevin says:

    Open carry of long guns is absurd, but the westboro church demonstrations are also absurd. Ditto KKK rallies, many (most?) political rallies, flag burnings, minimum wage demonstrations and a bunch of other constitutionally protected stuff.

    We can individually love or hate the exercise of rights, but shouldn’t try to ban others from exercising their rights. That’s why they are rights. Her position, that we should ban harmless things that we don’t like, is dangerous.

    1. avatar Anonymous says:

      That’s right. When we all tolerate each other’s perceived offenses we all benefit from it through our individual liberty of being able to perform and take part in things that some people may take offense to.

  9. avatar Dyspeptic Gunsmith says:

    Every time I hear her, I start cogitating whether we should simply repeal the 19th Amendment, or whether we should just allow her favorite immigrants (excuse me, “refugees”) to institute sharia law.

    I guess it comes down to whether we should just tell Hillary to shut up and bake some cookies, or tell Bill he can beat her silly with a wooden rod.

    Methinks Bill would go for the wooden rod. After all, the flip side to sharia is that he could have multiple wives, and much younger women at that… so win/win for Bubba!

    1. avatar Bob says:

      “…or tell Bill he can beat her silly with a wooden rod.”

    2. avatar Ralph says:

      tell Bill he can beat her silly with a wooden rod.

      In his current state of decrepitude, his wooden rod is probably the only one that still works.

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        The other rod still works, according to reports his Secret Service detail has a code name for one of his girlfriends, “The Energizer”. As in bunny…

    3. avatar jwm says:

      I’d wager money her rod is longer and thicker than his.

    I know it’s not relevant but gawd that woman has the most grating sqawking speaking style of just about anyone. Actually Sanders comes off as a batty old nutjob too when he is on stage ranting about taking over the means of production or whatever it is he is pushing.

    I wonder if they are doing this on purpose, like they believe it’s effective or something. I would vote against HRC just to shut her up if that’s all there was to it.

    They are even more annoying than Obama and his ‘uh, uh, uh, folks, uh, previous administration!, uh’.

    OC offends HRC? Too damn bad. What offends me is that the Dowager Empress has a chance of becoming President of my country, at which point it will become her country.

    Saunders is totally fruit-loops, but he’s right about one thing: the political system is rigged. Trump broke up, or at least damaged, the Republican cabal. The Democrat cabal still has full control of that party, but maybe Trump can break that too.

    1. avatar TyrannyOfEvilMen says:

      Open carry. Concealed carry. Free speech. Freedom of religion. Freedom of the press. Freedom to assemble. The right to protection from unreasonable l search and seizure of property. The right to due process of law….

      All of these rights and more more offend her.

      That is why we must vote for Trump, even if we believe that he is a flawed candidate.

    Maybe.

    Should it be illegal?
    No, so crawl back under your rock and hide your blood-stained hands, Mrs Klinton.

  17. avatar Mike J says:

    As usual, Hillary gets her facts wrong. You don’t need any sort of permit to carry a long gun openly, at least not in Texas. You need a handgun license to carry a handgun openly.

    1. avatar Mark N. says:

      Moreover, at the time of the Chipotle Ninja, there was no legal open carry of handguns in Texas, and open carry of long arms did not require a license, as open carry handguns does today.

  18. avatar Rimfire says:

    That old bat is our worst nightmare, as we POTG are well aware. To say that there are no real differences is not true. You know it down deep as well as I do.Her as president means Chucky Schumer as the lead dog of the Senate as well, of that we can be sure.What we’d all be crying about after that scenario is why WE let this happen folks.After your rights are taken away is too late people. Please let that point sink in for a moment.

    It was nice to see that RF has seen that too, I owe him an apology for thinking he was not strong with us in this battle. Rf, and this site are the bond that joins us in this fight for our 2A rights. Toss in the incredible work that the NRA has done to fight stupid rules, and we are fortunate indeed.Those that piss and moan about the NRA? What have YOU done by yourself that equals their efforts in 2A protection?

    Much as with Trump, the NRA is not perfect either. You know this as well as I. However we also know that NOT voting for Trump is in reality a vote for Hitlery, so don’t sit this dance out.

  19. avatar Rimfire says:

    My .02 cents on this open carry issue is quite plain Jane, open carry of any long gun will scare the bejeebus out of many who are unsure of their own stance on gun control, please don’t be that guy (or girl) who causes someone to go anti-gun.

    In my mind, it also sets you up as MVT, Most Valuable Target, for the bad guys intent on doing what they do.
    This is why a accept CC to be the wise option and leave my modern sporting rifle in the car when I shop. In a SHTF moment you may be fortunate to have other CC folks in that store as well. Don’t become an unintended target for someone who confused you as one of the bad guys. That long gun carry may be your last.
    Rimfire steps off his soapbox, back to your regularly scheduled program

  20. avatar Garrison Hall says:

    Of course our good Hillary would never even a little bit reflect on the upsetting effect of the armed guys in black suits and sunglasses who follow her around all the time and who, of course, would be a decidedly menacing presence in any grocery store she cared to enter. Oh yeah, I forgot, Hillary doesn’t do grocery stores.

  21. avatar Mark N. says:

    Ah, so it is not Heller that drives her up a wall, it is McDonald. This is consistent with her stand against national concealed carry: that each state or local government should be able to decide for itself what is appropriate for guns in public. States rights and all. I recall DiFi making the same pitch. The only problem with this result is what we see now–a patchwork of laws that are impossible to keep track of, with consequential impacts on nonresidents visiting other states. The net result of not imposing the 2nd on the states is that the right essentially cannot be enforced anywhere, and therefore is no right at all. It is to avoid this very result is the reason that so many of the other rights have been imposed on the states. Why should the 2nd be any different?

  22. avatar radar says:

    Instead of her running for President, Maybe we could get Hillary to lead the first delegation to Venus? Instead of just running a Country (into the ground),
    She could become Dictator of her own planet. Think how good that will look on her LinkedIn page!

      What did the poor Venarians ever do to deserve that?

  23. avatar Jason says:

    Just remember, I respect everyone’s right of choice to vote for whom ever but if you dont vote for trump, you vote for hillary. If it hadn’t been for Ross Perot, we would have never heard of the Clintons in the first place. Well I would have, I’m from Arkansas. They aren’t well liked here either, thanks to them we have the world’s longest double wide trailer, the Clinton Presidential Library.
