Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton: Gun culture 'way out of balance'
Posted on 05/06/2014 4:45:32 PM PDT by mdittmar
WASHINGTON (AP) Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday the nation's gun culture has gotten "way out of balance" and the U.S. needs to rein in the notion that "anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime."
The former secretary of state and potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said the idea that anyone can have a gun is not in the "best interest of the vast majority of people." But she said that approach does not conflict with the rights of people to own firearms.
Clinton waded into the polarizing issue of gun politics during an appearance at the National Council for Behavioral Health conference in Oxon Hill, Maryland, pointing to recent shootings that involved teens who had been playing loud music and chewing gum and a separate incident involving the typing of text messages in a movie theater.
"I think again we're way out of balance. I think that we've got to rein in what has become an almost article of faith that anybody can have a gun anywhere, anytime," Clinton said. "And I don't believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people. And I think you can say that and still support the right of people to own guns."

I think that we've got to rein in what has become an almost article of faith that anybody can have a Federal Government handout anywhere, anytime,.
And I don't believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people. And I think you can say that and still support the right of people.
At this point, does that make a difference?
Gee, another constitutional scholar speaks
Hillary, the only way Bill can get his third term
What about the amount of accountability in government officials?
How out of balance is that, Hillary?
Notice the language. She thinks there is a right to “own” guns. Bearing them is another matter, I’d bet.
It's Slick Willie wife that is 'out of balance'. It's the Second Amendment bi*ch!!! Same thing as "a woman's right to chose" except that the right to own a firearm is covered in the Bill of Rights. Your dumbass "right to chose" was pulled out of the ***es of some genocidal, commie lib "judges".
You know what, if all the gun laws on the books today haven’t made us safe, then lets do away with them.
Thanks for owning up to it Hillary!
I think it should be an issue of choice!
Everyone knows choice hurts nobody.
There is no such notion. Yet another Democrat straw man.
What part of “shall not be infringed” does Hillary not understand?
There is no new law restricting the right to keep and bear arms that could make us safer than we are now. There are a whole lot of laws on the books that could be repealed to make us safer. Technically she’s right that gun laws are out of balance, but that’s only by accident.
No, dear, you can't. It's one or the other. Because the minute you think that rights can be limited by government ukase you've crossed the line into tyranny, and that will become a matter that will be settled at whatever level it requires.
Hillary was likely one of the architects of Fast & Furious. I trust her like a snake.
I would thank Hillary for giving us this issue, except that her RINO opponent will probably agree with her.
What’s out of balance is the industrial-strength militarization of every gubmint agency from local police to state police, all the way to the Feral Gummint alphabet agencies and even the stupid park rangers.
They’re the ones that need to back off.
Until then, we keep arming up, WITCH.
Sir Hillary (and I use the term affectionately) is a wacko. I would like to hear her explanation as to why all the major mass killings the past few years, including Colorado and Ft. Hood were committed by registered DemocRATS. Wouldn’t it be logical to prevent DemocRATS from having firearms considering they are the ones responsible for senseless deaths? The Great OZ has spoken.
This would be a good time, if some interviewer would like to make this sow squeal a bit louder, to ask her if she could cite chapter and verse, in American history, where “anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime.”
I agree. So when do we start reining in all these federal agencies?
loud music, chewing gum,theater texting, always innocent people, doing innocent things being gunned down all over by the ‘gun culturalists’ in Everytown, U.S.A.
Here’s an idea..
GO TO A COUNTRY WHERE GUNS ARE BANNED AND TAKE UP PERMANENT RESIDENCE, NO ONE HERE WILL MIND AND MAYBE YOU’LL LIVE LONGER
I suppose a lesbian pimp btch would not like to see gun culture spread to her rank of sex workers like Juanita or Lewinsky
I bet she is ok with Muslim brotherhood being armed anywhere any time.
strangely enough, the abortion culture of the dems has killed far more people in the US then guns ever have
fact: #1 cause of death in the US.... abortion.
1 in 4 babies killed since 1974
Why can't I just eat my waffle?
And according to El Paso Times she had her own thing going on with a cartel.
What are you afraid of, Hillary?
She’s right. I think a 1911 on the left hip would balance things out.
I think we are way out of balance with too many pinko commies trying take our guns.
Is there anything they don’t know?
Seriously, at this point, Hillary, what difference does it make?
Another progressive beating their chest, “I want it my way!”
“Damn the Constitution!” “I want it my way!”
Free phone, free internet, free cable TV and free food stamps and she might just get it.
Oh and free health care....
Life is a bitch if you have a job and care about freedom.
Easier just to sit back, smoke a doobie and obey the leader.
Sorry Mrs. Slick Willie. It’s the commie ‘RAT Alinsky culture that is out of balance.
Come and take them, Buttress Thunderthighs!
“We can’t be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans...
When we got organized as a country and we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of individual freedom to Americans, it was assumed that the Americans who had that freedom would use it responsibly ... [Now] there’s a lot of irresponsibility. And so a lot of people say there’s too much freedom. When personal freedom’s being abused, you have to move to limit it.
If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the government’s ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those guarantees.
This quote is in the Clinton archives. I know because I went to a Repository library and looked it up.
I reply as the B|tch herself would:
She’s a liar. She cannot abide the right to keep and bear arms. She is possessed by the fascist notion that only the state should have arms.
We have weapons to protect oueprselces from the likes of her.
Her balance? no guns
Whole lot of I’s in that one sentence quote.
Perhaps the Stalinette in waiting should know that “I” just din’t give a damn what she thinks.
her balance.....2nd amendment for 200 plus year—balanced in her mind by 200 years of no guns.
Cankles has spoken... and as usual said nothing.
Was it her husband, or his partner Al, that admitted the Democrat gun control cause looses elections?
Anyone can murder their unborn baby, anywhere, anytime.
Hillary doesn’t get it. I suspect that’s intentional on her part...
So Hillary does not beleive in the 2nd Amendment. Who could have seen that coming!
One word. Waco. Two more words. F@@k off.
Hillary’s giving up her guns?
The libs get really upset when 20 school children are killed by some nutjob with a gun.
But not a peep about the many babies killed by the mass murderer Kermit Gosnell.
Things are out of balance alright.
2nd Amendment bump for later........
Hillary Clintooon is out of balance...more like off her rocker! FUHC!!!!!!
