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 thats 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 Clintons 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 dont 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 its 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 Sundays 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....

I’ll be glad when this stupid bitch goes away.
No - it’s the opponents of the Second Amendment that scares Americans. And the federal government buying up all the ammunition.
Please! run on Gun Control
It’s not like only Republicans own guns
Not a minority and I resent the implication hillary.
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.
Yep, what an old hag.
I meet more people, especially women, when I wear my Sig Sauer ballcap.
No scary moments at all.
Go Hillary Go!
When you think of hildabeast think of who is behind her “soros”
ISIS is outlawing guns in areas they control in Baghdad, too.
It’s like the want to lose the next election so that when the wheels completely fall off of America, they can blame us because we’ll have power when it happens.
dittos pal, dittos. Like as not, they'll be around after me, but I'll pray for God's sentence to these to heinous people.
“We cannot let a minority of people, and thats what it is, it is a minority of people, hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people”
I agee coz GAYS are a minority and terrorize married folks sumthin` terrible
The only way Hillary will go away is when Satan calls her home to Hell.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. What is it going to take for this hag to go away?
Giving the old crone her due, I would have to agree that as a member of the radical left she would be an expert in the use of terror.
I call b.s. on the Benghazi statement. Based on previous statements, all information has been released. The blame was p
Put on a video. Now she’s saying we don’t really know what happened??? Will any journalists call her out on this staggering contradiction????
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.
