Hillary Clinton has long been a rabid anti-gun fanatic. Stemming back from her years in her husband’s abysmal administration where she helped promote the passage of the infamous freedom-crushing Brady Bill to her 2016 presidential campaign, Clinton has made the elimination of self-defense, gun rights, buttress against unwarranted government encroachment, and the Second Amendment a hallmark of her stance.

For instance, as NY Senator in 2004, Clinton Voted NO on S.1805,[1] the “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act,” a bill that would have prohibited lawsuits against gun manufacturers for gun violence.

 

[2] In 2005, Clinton voted NO

 

[3] on the “Protection of Lawful Commerce Act,” a similar bill that was eventually passed into law.

 

[4] In 2006, Clinton voted against the Vitter Amendment, an amendment to the Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act of 2006, which sought to “prohibit the confiscation of a firearm during an emergency or major disaster if the possession of such firearm is not prohibited under Federal or State law.” The amendment passed into law despite Clinton’s best efforts.

 

[5] But while she was not faced with the gun issue for much of her tenure as NY Senator, her public statements are very clear.
In August of 2000, Clinton signed on the “Hyde Park Declaration,” a Manifesto entitled “A New Agenda For A New Decade,” where the goals of the manifesto were to toughen gun control laws and “require smart gun technology.”

 

[6] Consider also her statement in her book It Takes A Village,
The first step is to take weapons off the streets and to put more police on them. The Brady Bill, which my husband signed into law in 1995, imposes a 5-day waiting period for gun purchases, time enough for authorities to check out a buyer’s record and for the buyer to cool down about any conflict he might have intended the gun to resolve. Since it was enacted, more than 40,000 people with criminal records have been prevented from buying guns. The 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act banned 19 types of military-style assault weapons whose only purpose is to kill people.
As part of a “zero tolerance” policy for weapons, drugs, and other threats to the safety of teachers and students, the President signed an executive order decreeing that any student who comes to school with a gun will be expelled and punished as a condition of federal aid.

 

[7]Later, in 1999, Clinton continued to push fear to High School students where she told a high school class that they should socially ostracize households who own guns.
Q: What actions can students take to help gun control further?
A: Young people, especially teenagers, [should pledge] to not give any child unsupervised access to a firearm; not to go into homes, or let your younger siblings go into homes where you know guns are and are not safely stored and taken care of. You guys are going to a party, make sure there are no guns around. If you own a gun or you know people who do, make sure it’s locked up and stored without the ammunition.

 

[8]She continued by addressing gun owners and suggested that they could protect children by storing their weapons in a way that would make it impossible to actually use them in a way that might protect their children.
If you own a gun… make sure it’s locked up and stored without the ammunition. In fact, make it stored where the ammunition is stored separately. We’ve made some progress in the last several years with the Brady Bill and some of the bans on assault weapons, but we have a lot of work to do.

 

[9]In her remarks to the NEA in 1999, Clinton once again attacked guns by attempting to portray America as a land where children roam free on the streets with six-shooters on their hips. She said,
We have to do everything possible to keep guns out of the hands of children, and we need to stand firm on behalf of the sensible gun control legislation that passed the Senate and then was watered down in the House. It does not make sense for us at this point in our history to turn our backs on the reality that there are too many guns and too many children have access to those guns-and we have to act to prevent that.

 

[10]Deciding to upgrade (or downgrade) to terrorizing Middle School students about guns, Hillary stated to the South Side Middle School in in Nassau County in 1999, “We will not make progress on a sensible gun control agenda unless the entire American public gets behind it. It is really important for each of you [kids] to make sure you stay away from guns. If you have guns in your home, tell your parents to keep them away from you and your friends and your little brothers and sisters.”

 

[11] In June 2000, Hillary Clinton voiced her support for a draconian bill that would have made Stalin nod in approval. The bill would have required anyone who was seeking to purchase a gun to obtain a state-issued photo gun license in order to do so. In other words, gun licensing.
In regards to that bill, Clinton stated, “I stand in support of this common-sense legislation to license everyone who wishes to purchase a gun.”

 

[12]Going beyond even that, Clinton added, “I also believe that every new handgun sale or transfer should be registered in a national registry.”

 

[13] In her 2003 book, A Living History, Clinton referred to the Columbine shooting as a crisis that she and her husband would not allow to go to waste in regards to gun control. She wrote,
A month after the Columbine shootings, Bill & I went to Littleton Colorado to visit with the families of victims & survivors. The Columbine tragedy was not the first, nor the last, episode involving gun violence at an American high school. But it ignited a call for more federal action to keep guns out of the hands of the violent, troubled and young–a lethal combination. Bill and I announced a proposal to raise the legal age of handgun ownership to 21, and limit purchases of handguns to one per month.

 

[14]In a 2008 Presidential debate in Las Vegas, Clinton trumped up the nonsensical line that police deaths were going up because of the lapse of the assault weapons ban and that “bad guys” (note the term “bad guys” as if talking to children) now had assault weapons. Clinton, of course, blamed guns. She stated,
I am against illegal guns, and illegal guns are the cause of so much death and injury in our country. I also am a political realist and I understand that the political winds are very powerful against doing enough to try to get guns off the street, get them out of the hands of young people. I don’t want the federal government preempting states and cities like New York that have very specific problems. We need to have a registry that really works with good information about people who are felons, people who have been committed to mental institutions. We need to make sure that that information is in a timely manner, both collected and presented. We do need to crack down on illegal gun dealers. This is something that I would like to see more of. We need to enforce the laws that we have on the books. I would also work to reinstate the assault weapons ban. We now have, once again, police deaths going up around the country, and in large measure because bad guys now have assault weapons again.

 

[15]As is typical for Clinton, she has tried to weasel around the fact that she is a notorious gun-grabber who is dedicated to total disarmament. While attempting to bob and weave during another Presidential debate in 2008, she was forced to admit that she supports the DC gun ban and the draconian and unconstitutional gun laws of New York City. The discussion was as follows:

 

Q: Do you support the DC handgun ban?
A: I want to give local communities the authority over determining how to keep their citizens safe. This case you’re referring to is before the Supreme Court.

Q: But what do you support?
A: I support sensible regulation that is consistent with the constitutional right to own and bear arms.

Q: Is the DC ban consistent with that right?
A: I think a total ban, with no exceptions under any circumstances, might be found by the court not to be. But DC or anybody else [should be able to] come up with sensible regulations to protect their people.

Q: But do you still favor licensing and registration of handguns?
A: What I favor is what works in NY. We have one set of rules in NYC and a totally different set of rules in the rest of the state. What might work in NYC is certainly not going to work in Montana. So, for the federal government to be having any kind of blanket rules that they’re going to try to impose, I think doesn’t make sense.

[16]Of course, the Federal government already has a blanket rule – the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights, however, have never got in Clinton’s way before.
One of her more famous and recent diatribes against gun ownership was made in 2014 at the National Behavioral Health Conference, when she stated that “We’ve got to rein in what has become an almost article of faith that anybody can have a gun anywhere, anytime,” she said. “And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.”

[17] During a CNN Town Hall Meeting, Clinton compared gun-owners to terrorists and a violence-prone minority. She stated that “We cannot let a minority of people — and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people — hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.” She also said “We’re going to have to do a better job protecting the vast majority of our citizens, including our children, from that very, very, very small group that is unfortunately prone to violence and now with automatic weapons can wreak so much more violence than they ever could have before.

[18] [19] Clinton’s fanaticism seems to have only grown stronger in recent months. As her 2016 campaign kicks into high gear, Clinton has made it clear that she will be attacking the Second Amendment head on. As she told a crowd in Iowa in early July, “I’m going to speak out against the uncontrollable use of guns in our country because I believe we can do better.”

[20] She had told a crowd in New Hampshire only a few days earlier, “We have to take on the gun lobby. . . . This is a controversial issue. I am well aware of that. But I think it is the height of irresponsibility not to talk about it.”

[21] Clinton, while leaving a trail of smoke and mirrors behind her on virtually every issue has been consistent on only two – war and gun control. With that in mind, any claims by a woman who so vociferously supported every war she has had the opportunity to support regarding her concern the lives of innocent people should be immediately dismissed. Clinton has earned her place among the mass murderers of the U.S. government and eliminating gun ownership will likely put her in a position to march her psychopathic trail of tears even further.
While Clinton may finally have found the gift of consistency on this issue, there is no room for the consistency of tyranny and oppression. Hitlery’s obsession with gun control ranks as yet one more reason that Hillary Clinton should never be president.
