Take your blood pressure meds before watching this one folks.
Most Democrats at least try to dance around the issue of guns, especially when it comes to banning them, however, not Hillary, not here.
The former First Lady, and possible 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said in a recent town hall style interview with CNN that she supports reinstating the federal assault weapons ban, supports bans on standard capacity magazines, and touted the debunked 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook stat was brought up by the teacher speaking to Hillary.
“I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation, 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,”
“I don’t think any parent, any person, should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone, for whatever reasons — psychological, emotional, political, ideological, whatever it means — could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers/”
It should be noted that even CNN has debunked the statistic put out by Everytown for gun safety that there have been 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook. CNN found only 15 instances that would truly be classified as school shootings, and by definition only one of those would be classified as a mass shooting.
Clinton also repeatedly mentions “automatic weapons”. We assume she means semi-automatic weapons since automatic weapons are very strictly controlled as well as incredibly expensive. Legally owned automatic weapons have been used in 2 documented instances of crime over the last 75 years.
I know a lot of hoopla has been made about Obama’s anti-gun politics, and make no mistake, if he had the support in Congress he would be much more aggressive on guns, but if Hillary Clinton is elected president we will see the most aggressive anti-gun president in the history of this nation.
