Hillary Clinton: “Amen” To Using Executive Orders

At a campaign appearance in Hartford, Conn., Thursday, when a supporter urged her to use her executive powers, if elected president, to attack the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms—and the right to carry in particular—Hillary Clinton replied, “Let the congregation say, ‘Amen.’” 

Not content to attack just the bearing of arms, but also the keeping of arms, Clinton said a day earlier in Philadelphia that even firearms in homes were too much. “We have just too many guns. On the streets, in our homes, in our neighborhoods,” Clinton said. Note that she didn’t say “too many guns in the wrong hands,” but just, “too many guns”—meaning yours and mine.

So it’s no surprise that Clinton went on to vow, “I will use every single minute of every day ... looking for ways that we can change the gun culture.”
