Hillary Clinton Says Opponents Of Gun Control Laws ‘Terrorize’ Americans
Time ^ | June 17, 2014 | Zeke J. Miller

Possible 2016 candidate wades into politically charged issue.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lashed out at opponents of gun control regulations Tuesday, saying they hold a viewpoint that “terrorizes” the majority of Americans.

“We cannot let a minority of people, and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people, hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people,” Clinton said during a live CNN town hall. The comments were Clinton’s deepest foray into an exceedingly controversial political subject since leaving the State Department last year.

“I was disappointed that the Congress did not pass universal background checks after the horrors of the shootings at Sandy Hook,” she said in response to a question from a school teacher in the audience. “I don’t think any parent, or any person should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone for whatever reason, psychological, emotional, political, ideological, whatever, could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers.”

“I will speak out [on this subject] no matter what role I find myself in,” Clinton pledged, referring to her consideration of a presidential bid in 2016.

The outspoken position on gun control legislation is a clear appeal to the overwhelming majority of Americans who support expanding background check requirements before gun purchases, but it’s sure to inflame gun rights activists and the National Rifle Association, which blocked legislation in the Senate last year. It could also backfire by alienating moderate gun owners.

Responding to Sunday’s apprehension of Ahmed Abu Khatallah, allegedly a “key figure” in the 2012 attacks on an American consulate in Benghazi, Clinton said she hoped questioning would reveal more about what happened on the ground on the night of the attack....

No - it’s the opponents of the Second Amendment that scares Americans. And the federal government buying up all the ammunition.

Hillary, YOU “hold a viewpoint that “terrorizes” the majority of Americans”, as does Obama!

You ARE the “thought police”!

You want to disarm law abiding citizens so that YOU can freely “terrorize the majority of Americans”!

Isn’t Hillary the lame bimbo who said that she and Bill were going to have to cut back on our freedom? What a clueless ditz. I can’t believe anyone would even consider voting for her. That would be way beyond retarded and gay to do that.

So now people who defend the 2nd amendment are terrorists.

Just like the people who defend the 1st amendment of freedom of religion are haters.

She and the other extreme liberals are fascists, and they are trying to dehumanize their opponents by calling us terrorists and un-american (like Pelosi did) so it would be acceptable when they unleash the full power of the US Government on us.

Hey Hillary, perhaps if Amb Stevens had a gun he would be alive today, but you watched and probably high fived while he was being raped and murdered in Benghazi..then LIED to Sean Smith’s mother claiming a VIDEO caused his death..during any other period of time, a murdering b*tch like Clinton wouldn’t stand a chance in a presidential election, but these times are different, filled with people who want freebies from the Govt, that is who Clinton is counting on to vote for her

Maybe a little off topic but I think the guns and ammo scarcity may be about to end.

In the last two weeks I have gotten emails from my regular dealers including CDNN. They had several brands of .22LR for sale and the prices were only a little too high. They did have a limit of two boxes of each but still the first time in a year or more that these large dealers had .22 for sale.

Also around a week ago the local Wal-Mart had reduced maybe a half dozen guns including Colt ARs and Savage and Ruger bolt actions. They had the Rugers for under $300 and the Savage in .270 for less than $200. I checked back a couple of days ago and they were all gone but also the first time I had seen Wal-Mart not only having but putting on sale, long guns.

The Savage for under $200 struck me as one heck of a deal.

LOL. That's why gun control is probably the one area where Libs get their asses handed to them time after time when they try to enact policies that restrict gun ownership.

Ms. Clinton should run on a platform of 100% ban of private ownership of guns in America. That should go well.

Yes that is a good price unless it is some el cheapo that I have never heard of.

The local Wal-Mart had cut the Colt (not sure what model but it was two toned and had a 16” barrel) from around $1200 to just over $800. I will say that it appeared to be a better than average Colt.

I’m getting tired of this “conservatives are terrorists”, “tea party are terrorists”, “gun rights activists are terrorists”, “pro-life movement are terrorists”, etc etc.

Tired of the talk, I want them to actually start trying to treat us as such. Try locking us all up in some gitmo camp. Bring it on. Let’s see how far you can go till the pushback really starts.

Hopefully someone (or multiple someones) with the access to a LOT of airtime point out the last time an automatic weapon was used in a school shooting ...

Yep, brother picked up a S&W AR this weekend for $650. On another note however, our local bank shut his card down afterwards because they noticed a “suspicious charge”. So that bank BS appears to be catching.

HRC makes statements like this because the Dem party has looked at the political landscape and determined they will be running unopposed in 2016. In general, the past 2 years, the Dems have been open about their extremism and have been operating as if they are a one-party government. They have seen the lack of consequences associated with the Fast-and-Furious, IRS, and Benghazi situations. They see that the reaction from Americans is minimal. The MSM will suppress information and tout the Dems. The R-party is extremely timid, wanting only personal security among a few high-level R-party figures.

The Dem party has a clear road ahead and HRC can say anything she wants. She has a near lock on the USSC, too, going forward. There is insufficient opposition to her, despite her extremely poor record. She has seen how BHO has been able to run a quasi-dictatorship with negligible consequences. She will be the “first woman president” and figures that is sufficient to win and take control.
