Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton: U.S. needs to 'rein in' proliferation of guns
Posted on 05/07/2014 8:54:37 AM PDT by xzins
Hillary Clinton told an audience of mental health professionals on Tuesday that the United States needs to rein in its gun culture or risk a world where insignificant disagreements could lead to shootings.
Asked about the mental health aspects of guns, Clinton said "I think we've got to rein in what has become a almost article faith that anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime. I don't believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people."
"We really have got to get our arms around it because at the rate we are going, we are going to have so many people with guns everywhere fully licensed, fully validated," Clinton said, painting a picture of a country where small annoyances could lead to shootings.
Clinton, whose comments came during the question and answer portion at the end of her appearance, said because "we are living at a time when there is so much external stimulation and some much internal confusion in certain people," it would be a bad idea to let people "go to bars with guns, let them go to schools with guns, let them go to church with guns."
Referencing a shooting earlier this year where a 71-year old retired police officer shot a 43-year old man texting in a movie theater, Clinton said people thinking they "have the right to defend themselves against the gum chewer and the cell phone user by shooting the person" is reminiscent of countries she visited "with no rule of law and self control."

As a pastor, I'm thinking that church would be among the safest places for concealed carry holders.
Rein in = Put a boot on the throat of
Hopefully, this will be a big part of her campaign platform. This and her support for Obamacare.
You got that right.
This is an election-loser. Let her speak.
I feel 100% secure in my church, knowing there are guns all around me.
All leftists hate guns for obvious reasons.
It makes it harder for them to take over a nation.
How about we “rein-in” the proliferation of industrial-strength militarization of every government agency from beat cops to state police to Fedzilla alphabet agencies and their mercenaries?
Meanwhile, we need to rein-in the proliferation of anti-Consitutional fascists like WITCH Hitlery.

> All leftists hate guns for obvious reasons.
They don’t hate guns, per-se.
They hate an armed populace.
A disarmed populace is much easier to control.
Is she talking about inner-city Chicago?
How about reigning in the spending? The Welfare State? Fed employee headcounts, compensation, benefits and pensions? How bout reigning in the racism in this Administration, esp Justice Dept? How about reigning in unpopular and unfair preference and quota programs?
How bout reigning in the CRIME that leads to self protection in the first place
The department of Homeland Security was a huge mistake. It is becoming the standing army with allegiance sworn to the king that the Founders worried about.
They are going to try and declare the gun culture a mental illness, Soviet style.
In fact they are going to say that anyone that wants their liberty, their rights, and prosperity to be mentally deranged and a terrorist.
The same old tired lie. This has been disproved repeatedly, but the anti-gunners keep repeating it.
You might have to really duck...unlike in Iraq.
Hillary used term “let them” several times. If the right is enshrined in the Constitution then how does she get to decide what is allowed and what is not allowed?
Actually they love guns, but only in the hands of their JBTs. It OUR hands they don't like to be able to pick up a gun..
She makes it sound like a bad thing.
Clinton said “I think we’ve got to rein in what has become a almost article faith that anybody can have FREEDOM, anywhere, anytime. I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.”
Isn’t this really what she is saying?
You might have noticed, Tet, but leftists aren’t real big on FREEDOM either. :>)
Good post. Thanks.
No communist, progressive or statist ever wants their subjects to have weapons.
Don’t these people ever go away?
“...or risk a world where insignificant disagreements could lead to shootings.”
Only in a world of moral relativism. A world that you and your ilk are pushing for.
Many of the Pentecostal churches I’m familiar with have all their ushers, deacons and related people armed at all times.
“...this will be a big part of her campaign platform....”
Nah, she’ll show up at some local gun shop, with her “hunter’s vest” on, a blaze orange cap, talking about how “her and her dad used to shoot ducks” when she was growing up, and then ask if “I can get me a huntin’ License here”?
And a bevy of Armed, Taxpayer-funded SS will be surrounding her, with their ultra-cool sunglasses and botox-fixed scowls.
She’ll try to fool the usual numbnuts... and will succeed with some of them.
A Sampling of Hillary Clinton Quotes:
“We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”
“It’s time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few, and for the few...... And to replace it with shared responsibility,
for shared prosperity.”
“(We).....can’t just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people.”
“We have to build a political consensus and that requires people to give up a little bit of their own ... in order to create this common ground.”
“I certainly think the free-market has failed.”
“I think it’s time to send a clear message to what has become the most profitable sector in (the) entire economy that they are being watched.”
Yep, remove guns from Americans so when they’re overrun
by shrillary goons, they can throw rocks at the goons.
Proliferation of guns to Al Quaida (see Benghazi).
It has worked so well in many places in the past, only hundreds of millions killed, unable to defend themselves from their friendly benevolent government. A healthy percentage of the serfs here know better.
Remember during her and billy boy’s terms in office? More
that 50 people were removed from the living by various means. Some even committed suicide with a bullet hole in
the back of their heads ...... with a rifle.
“I think we’ve got to rein in what has become a almost article faith that anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime.”
Except for the whole “right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” thingy.
“it would be a bad idea to let people “go to bars with guns, let them go to schools with guns, let them go to church with guns.”
Let them, let them, let them. The mind of a fascist.
She will ‘let you’ eat broccoli. Be grateful, you slug!
Everywhere Hillary goes she has a gun with her. It is mighty hypocritical of her to say others can’t.
Well, we know what not letting responsible people carry guns into schools, etc. gets.
Feel free,sweetie,to try to amend the Constitution if you wish.Otherwise.....shut the hell up!
It isn’t just that. It is a world view.
They grow up in a world where firearms are only all BAD. Yes their security guards have them, and so do police, but if we can only perfect mankind there would be no need for arms at all.
This is also why the elite’s can’t seem to grasp why the West is at war with Islam. They think deep down all muslims want to be posh New Yorkers. They can not understand anyone who has different objectives.
Unfortunately, utopian dreamers always become despots when human nature fails to conform to what they want to be.
If I refuse will sahe “let me” live? Likely only till the train reaches its destination.
You do realize that there is a push for a new Constitutional convention. I heard on the news they had enough states lined up to do it also.
The 2nd will not last the first cut.
I thank God the Liberals don't like guns. Except for their bodyguards.
Why can’t she rein in her fat stomach first? Get a girdle, Hillary!
