Leaked audio has been released of Hillary Clinton playing to the gun grabbing anti-Second Amendment crowd…she’s just pitiful, isn’t she? I’ve got news for her, nothing could have been better for the gun industry that the ban on AK-47’s. If you want to create demand in the gun industry, ban a gun. I know this firsthand and remember when my father bought several AK-47’s right before Bill Clinton’s ban on them. My family has always enjoyed guns because my dad took the time to teach each of us about having a gun. Crime and shootings having nothing to do with Americans like us who do the right thing as gun owners. It’s such a typical liberal move to think that if you ban a gun the bad guys will give them up or you can totally get rid of them. It’s the law abiding Americans who are hurt in all this. Stupid liberals!
Hillary Clinton slammed the Supreme Court as “wrong on the Second Amendment” and called for reinstating the assault weapons ban during a small private fundraiser in New York last week, according to audio of her remarks obtained by the Washington Free Beacon:
While Clinton has previously supported an assault weapons ban, this is the first time since launching her campaign that she indicated that she would take on the Supreme Court over gun issues.
Although Clinton did not identify which Supreme Court case she disagreed with, she appeared to be criticizing the landmark 2008 ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller, which found the handgun ban in Washington, D.C., unconstitutional.
“I was proud when my husband took [the National Rifle Association] on, and we were able to ban assault weapons, but he had to put a sunset on so 10 years later. Of course [President George W.] Bush wouldn’t agree to reinstate them,” said Clinton.
“We’ve got to go after this,” Clinton continued. “And here again, the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.”
She also used some of her strongest language yet to criticize the NRA, vowing to take on the gun rights lobbying group and make this a key component of her campaign.
“I’m going to speak out, I’m going to do everything I can to rally people against this pernicious, corrupting influence of the NRA and we’re going to do whatever we can,” she said.
