As Night Follows Day, “Clinton” Means Gun Control

Hillary Clinton is the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee for 2016, and gun owners should be rightly wary. Not because she’s likely to display any actual “common sense” on gun issues—though she is certain to utter those precise words repeatedly—but because the camouflaging of what she really wants has already started. It will be complete and very deceptive by the time the general election rolls around.

Witness recent comments in Iowa “about the uncontrollable use of guns in our country,” and “want[ing] to see real, serious debate and action on guns.”

The only thing “uncontrollable” is anti-gunners’ tolerance for serial felons who resort to (often idiotic, random) violence as a lifestyle choice. And the only “serious debate” is about what inconsequential smidgeon of the right will remain after stripping the Second Amendment bare. If this sounds worrisome, rest assured that any “action on guns” would be even worse if Hillary wins.
