Clinton Squirming Over Firearm Confiscation Plans

posted on October 21, 2015

A spokesperson for the Clinton presidential campaign attempted to backpedal on Hillary Clinton’s avowed support for Australia-style gun confiscation Monday. At a “town hall” campaign event on Oct. 16, Clinton said that Australia’s gun confiscation—in which 640,000 semi-automatic and pump-action shotguns and rifles were forcibly confiscated from law-abiding Australians through a so-called gun “buyback”—“would be worth considering doing on a national level” in the United States

In an MSNBC interview on Monday, Clinton spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri suggested, somewhat clumsily, that Clinton didn’t mean what she said ... or didn’t support the gun bans she has pushed throughout her entire career ... or that it was all a misunderstanding

NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox put it most succinctly: “This validates what the NRA has said all along: The real goal of gun-control supporters is gun confiscation. Hillary Clinton, echoing President Obama’s recent remarks on the same issue, made that very clear.”
