Hillary Clinton issued a series of cryptic threats to Fox News on Sunday that guarantees she will target the Second Amendment if elected president. She told host Chris Wallace that “no right is free from government oversight and regulation” when asked about existence of an individual right to bear arms. She suggested that Americans “do more than pray” when a mass shooting takes place, implying that it is time for gun laws to take the place of prayer. Clinton found a way to not only threaten religiously faithful Americans but also threaten their rights to bear arms at the same time.
Here is the full Fox News Sunday interview:
Any gun loving American can tell you this isn’t the first time Clinton has blatantly disrespected the Second Amendment. Just last year audio footage was leaked that featured Clinton stating that the “Supreme Court is wrong” when speaking about the Justices’ decision to affirm an individuals right to own a firearm. The shocking audio footage of this statement can be heard below.
During her interview with Fox News Clinton ironically stated that “prayer” isn’t enough when a gunman enters a gun-free zone. A rational person would tell you that dissolving gun-free zones is the simplest solution to this issue. However, Clinton has another idea she proposes the further degradation of American’s Second Amendment rights and strict firearm regulations.
“Everybody says, oh, let’s pray, let’s send our hearts and our feelings, and then nothing happens. We’re better than this. The gun lobby intimidates elected officials. The vast majority of Americans, including gun owners, support the kind of common-sense reforms that I’m proposing.”
The statements make it clear that Clinton plans to decimate Second Amendment rights if elected president. Gun owners have taken notice and are starting to prepare. Applications to purchase firearms have skyrocketed for the month of July. Over 2.2 million applications were processed last month, crushing the record set last year and adding to the 15-month string of record-setting months for firearm background checks.
