Hillary Clinton: U.S. needs to 'rein in' proliferation of guns
Political Ticker ^ | 5/6/2014 | Dan Merica

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.

Hopefully, this will be a big part of her campaign platform. This and her support for Obamacare.

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.

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?

If Hillary were an American she would realize that the reason for growth of arms sales is mainly because of the growth of unAmerican government and unConstitutional actions of the unAmerican government.

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

Stupid beyotch

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.

Hillary Clinton told an audience of mental health professionals

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.
