Hillary Ignores Armed Self-Defense

posted on January 28, 2016

Democrat presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has never mentioned armed self-defense as a legitimate reason to own a firearm. And if you’re expecting her to do so anytime soon—well, don’t hold your breath.

At Monday’s town hall meeting in Iowa, Clinton said that gun ownership was a right and an opportunity. But her subsequent list of acceptable uses falls far short of the constitutional guarantee of our right to keep and bear arms.

“But here’s what I want you as a gun owner to understand,” Clinton said. “We’ve got to keep guns out of the hands of people who don’t use them for hunting or shooting practice or collecting.” While it’s encouraging that Clinton has finally admitted there are certain appropriate reasons for private firearms ownership, her short list is highly inadequate—especially where defense of self and family is concerned.
