Hillary: On Guns, “We’re Way Out Of Balance”

NRA-ILA

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- The NRA has always supported laws prohibiting violent felons and certain other categories of potentially dangerous persons from possessing guns, and it’s a position we’re confident is shared by the vast majority of gun owners nationwide.

Nevertheless, last Tuesday, Hillary Clinton, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, said, “I think that we’ve got to rein in what has become an almost article of faith that anybody can have a gun anywhere, anytime.”

Clinton also said that when it comes to guns, “I think again we’re way out of balance, and I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.” As if quoting from the playbook of 2008 presidential candidate Barack Obama, she added, “I think you can say that and still support the right of people to own guns.”

For the record, gun ownership “supporter” Clinton has previously supported banning “assault weapons,” supported gun owner licensing and gun registration, opposed legislation prohibiting the confiscation of firearms during emergencies, and opposed legislation prohibiting lawsuits seeking to hold the firearm industry financially liable for harm caused by criminals who use guns.

Furthermore, Clinton is a supporter of the Center for American Progress (CAP), founded by her anti-gun husband’s White House Chief of Staff and funded in part by anti-gun billionaire George Soros and the anti-gun Joyce Foundation. CAP, which also has very close ties to the Obama White House, advocates background checks on all firearm transfers and a ban on “assault weapons” and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. It also opposes Right-to-Carry and Stand Your Ground laws, and it boasts that “progress on stronger gun laws is within reach” because “Democrats and progressives are re-engaged.” Needless to say, CAP doesn’t speak for all Democrats on the issue, but Clinton is obviously not being shy about attaching gun control to her own political brand.

If contemplating a run for the White House, Mrs. Clinton would do well to note that the agenda she has advocated over the last 20 years has been rejected by Congress and most of the states.  The ownership of the kinds of guns that she most opposes has soared, as has the number of states with Right-to-Carry and strong self-defense laws, while the nation’s murder rate has decreased to nearly an all-time low.

Should she decide to run for president, and if she refuses to acknowledge the basic realities of the gun control debate, Hillary Clinton will certainly be reminded of them by the NRA.

      I agree with her; we ARE out of balance on SOME things. But certainly firearms RIGHTS.

      In her case, she’s out of “balance” on:
      Honesty
      Integrity
      Credibility
      Competence
      Patriotism
      Sanity
      Accountability
      Sense of Reality
      Economics
      Critical Thinking
      Comprehension
      The Constitution
      The Bill of Rights
      Her Oath(s) of Office

      and just about every other topic in which she proclaims herself to be “all-knowing”. For the “smartest woman in the world”, she pretty damned STUPID.

      Sorry. I meant to say “But certainly NOT on firearms RIGHTS”.

      TSgt, I believe your previous comment was fine. We ARE out of balance on firearms rights. Criminals continue to disobey the law yet the Liberals continue with their attempted gun grabbing measures of the law abiding gun owners. to me, that is out of balance

      YES! I agree.
      We are Waaaay out of balance. Not only do we allow Democrats out in public unsupervised. But we even allow them to SPEAK in public. And Even VOTE! This land is in serious need of some changes.
      ;>)

    5. She is about as smart as a box of rocks. I think America needs to wake up and stand together against the so called people that have been put in our federal gov’t positions to serve in OUR best interest. There are only a handful of members of federal gov’t that really understand or believe that they work for US the PEOPLE and not the other way around. We need to clean house as best we can in the NOV 2014 elections to get rid of the traitors that are in place of power right now and continue to do at every chance we get to bring us back to the country that we once were. It s the federal GOV”T that is way OUT OF BALANCE now not the constitution or OUR GOD given rights. UHITED WE STAND DIVIDED WE FALL
      GOD BLESS AMERICA

      This is the typical tactic – frame the debate as if there are no laws on the books at all, trying to sound imminently reasonable asking for laws that ALREADY EXIST. Then the details of the actual proposed legislation bear zero resemblance to the public rhetoric.

      “Out of Balance”? I’m not the one that fell and landed on my head!

      And she was way out of balance on Benghazi, but what difference does it matter to her. Just a few people dead. Funny, she didn’t blame guns in that instance.

      When you’re “Way out of balance” you fall down and hit your head. Hillary should know.
