Hillary Has Some Thoughts on Gun Ownership That May Upset Second Amendment Advocates

Staking out a position to the left of other potential Democratic opponents in 2016, Hillary Clinton said a culture where “anybody can have a gun” will lead to a country with “no rule of law and no self-control.”

Hillary Clinton says gun ownership shouldt be universal

The former secretary of state, New York senator and first lady spoke at the National Council for Behavioral Health conference Tuesday in Oxen Hill, Md., near Washington.

“I think again we’re way out of balance,” Clinton said of the Second Amendment debate, according to the Associated Press. “I think that we’ve got to rein in what has become an almost article of faith that anybody can have a gun anywhere, anytime. And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people. And I think you can say that and still support the right of people to own guns.”

Clinton has not announced she is running for the Democratic presidential nomination yet, but polls show her carrying more than 50 percent against a crowded field of other non-Hillary Democrats struggling to break double digits.

Though often a loser with voters, gun control appeals to the Democratic party’s liberal base for presidential primaries. And Clinton is behind other likely candidates in this area.

Vice President Joe Biden was the face of the Obama administration’s failed efforts to push gun control legislation in Congress in 2013, but could use the issue to rally support if he runs in 2016.

Two other likely Democratic contenders in 2016 are New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, both who signed sweeping gun control legislation in their states in the aftermath of the Newtown, Connecticut school massacre in 2012.

Speaking at the mental health conference, Clinton warned of the dire consequences of the gun culture.

“At the rate we’re going, we’re going to have so many people with guns everywhere, fully licensed, fully validated,” Clinton said.

Clinton warned that such a culture could increase incidents of theater shootings over trivial matters such as someone chewing gum too loud or using their cell phone.

“That’s what happens in the countries I’ve visited where there is no rule of law and no self-control and that is something that we cannot just let go without paying attention,” she said.

When I very first saw Obama, very first time, I thought well maybe at least he will keep that skank out of the white house.

Little did I know at the time that he would be a total Communist- Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer.

I felt the same way Billie, I think that one is just as corrupt as the other.

 As much as I despise Hillary, I don't think that she hates America, like the current office holder does.

I don't think that I would go to bed every night worried that my country would be gone when I woke up, I can't say that now.

 That is exactly right. We don't know with the words and actions that are portrayed by Obama, if someone will take us over during the night or he will just give the whole country away. He is a very dangerous man imo and I dread his remaining time in office.

Wouldn't shock me in the least to wake up and find out that he has turned the Nuclear Codes over to the Muslim Brotherhood and he has jetted back to Indonesia.

 Billie, I hate to answer for what I feel, and more than likly Obama defenders will come out, but I think we are living under a very dangerous goverment. My dad served in WWII and he died in 1986. I have said for a long time if he were alive today, he would not recognize this nation. Look at the changes since 1986 what is it going to be like next year, next month, or even tomorrow. It truly saddens me.
