Hillary Clinton: Gun Laws Are Too Lenient, Must Be 'Reined In'
Breitbart ^ | 6 May 2014 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 05/07/2014 6:48:21 AM PDT by Cheerio

During a May 6th speech at a National Council for Behavioral Health conference, while making the case that gun laws are far too lenient and need to be "reined in," Hillary Clinton asserted, "We're way out of balance" on guns.

According to the National Journal, "Clinton said she supports Second Amendment rights, [but] she added that there needs to be a proper trade-off between safety and freedom."

Clinton stated that the idea "that almost anyone can have a gun anywhere at any time" has "become almost an article of faith." She went on to say that this does not serve to the betterment of most people.

Furthermore, Clinton reportedly criticized laws similar to Georgia's new Safe Carry Protection Act, which expands concealed carry into churches, certain government buildings, schools, and unsecured portions of airports. She believes expanding the places where law-abiding citizens can carry guns will only lead to "more deadly violence that could otherwise be avoided."

The lowlife Clintons have always been famous for telling Americans that they have “too much freedom.”

So let me get this straight : Law abiding citizens in legal possession of firearms "can only lead to more gun violence which could otherwise be avoided"

since when do law abiding citizens shoot up theatres and schools?

Of course, you fascistic WITCH.

Meanwhile, the industrial strength militarization of every government agency from local constables to state police to Fedzilla alphabet agencies and their mercenaries continues apace.

I don’t think even the average liberal is buying this rotted soviet borscht in the current environment.

This is a good thing. Our country is witnessing the effects of what happens when we can’t protect ourselves. Our country is becoming more pro-gun. She can keep it up. It will only turn more moderates against her.

When she puts a zipper-lock on Bill’s pants, I might listen to what she has to say about law and order though I will still most likely disagree.

She is still the elitist bitch she has been her entire life.

"She can keep it up. It will only turn more moderates against her."

I agree. She seems to be trying to use the 2008 Obama position that "I support the second amendment but we need reasonable restrictions for public safety." We found out what a lie (among many others) that turned out to be after he got elected. That dodge won't work again so soon after people were previously hoodwinked with it. Besides, Obama seem likable and people wanted to believe him. I don't see that as the case with Hillary - she will receive much more skeptical scrutiny.

Clinton said she supports Second Amendment rights, [but]...

Why is it that all of the most rabid anti-gunners always start off by saying that they support the second amendment when they obviously don't? Is it that they're stupid or more likely that they think their audience is stupid?

and Hillary’s statement that Gov’t can’t be responsible for “every under-capitalized business”, with regard to employers paying for mandated healthcare.

Pure Communism!

It’s just difficult to impose while the citizens are armed.

A very good shot. She will be the democrat presidential nominee. The republicans will nominate a statist RINO who has as much chance of winning as the last statist RINO they nominated.

With the Libs/Dems it is all about control. More regulations, more taxes, more regulations, more laws...

The biggest problem is that many 'across the aisle' actually believe the same things.

Mrs. Benghazillary says...

...there needs to be a proper trade-off between safety and freedom.

And THIS is the telling phrase.

Benghazillary would like low info peeps to believe that it's safety or freedom, and that if you let her seize your freedom, she gives you safety.

(We, however, happen to know that 2A freedom and safety are linked on the same side of the equation, n'est ce pas?)

So let me get this straight Hillary.

From your statement you don’t believe American citizens should have guns but from you actions in providing guns to drug cartels and al Qaida terrorist you think it’s ok for the drug cartels and al Qaida terrorist to have guns.

It’s OK for the Secret Service guarding you to be armed since they are providing you a service.

Are the drug cartels and al Qaida also providing you a service and that’s why you want them to be armed, huh Hillary?
