Hillary Wants Gun Bans, But “That Doesn’t Mean I Want To Abolish The Second Amendment”

In Philadelphia on Tuesday, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton responded to an NRA ad referring to her statement that the Supreme Court’s decision in Heller was “wrong.” (Heller confirmed an individual right to keep a firearm in the home for self-defense.) 

“That doesn’t mean I want to abolish the Second Amendment,” Clinton pronounced before calling for comprehensive background checks that don’t stop criminals or mass murderers, closing mythical “loopholes” for sales at gun shows and online, and denying lawful citizens the right to buy a firearm until they can prove they shouldn’t have been placed on a terror watch list by government bureaucrats.

In other words, Clinton is like a deranged Jack Nicholson in “The Shining”: “I said, I’m not gonna hurt ya. I’m just going to bash your brains in.” Reasonable people are not persuaded by such verbal antics. 

Put the bat down, Hillary.
