While presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton likes to say she doesn’t want to take guns from law-abiding citizens, some of those charged with crafting the Democratic Party platform apparently have a different idea.
In a response to a question on Wednesday at a planning event, Bonnie Schaefer, one member of the 15-member Platform Drafting Committee, said, “I do believe that you’re absolutely correct—not just keeping the guns out of mentally ill people and criminals, but I really don’t personally think anyone should have a gun. I mean, that’s just my own philosophy. Nothing is ever solved when you have a gun in your hand except the worst possible scenario.”
Like her boss, Clinton, Schaefer apparently ignores the thousands of law-abiding, armed Americans who have saved their lives and the lives of others with firearms. Perhaps she should spend a little time reading our “Armed Citizen” section before popping off again.
