2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton just made one of the most illogical statements of her career. Speaking at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire earlier this week, Clinton, in referring to the National Rifle Association (NRA) told the audience:
“Ideally, what I would love to see is gun owners, responsible gun owners, hunters, form a different organization and take back the Second Amendment from these extremists.”
The NRA leads the world in providing firearm education, safety and training. It advocates for gun owners in Washington, D.C., but also, at the local level provides citizens with resources “to better understand gun and personal safety, continue the legacy of the shooting sports and defending American rights and freedom.”
Gun Owners of America also seeks to educate the public and advocate on behalf of gun owners “to preserve and defend the Second Amendment rights of gun owners,” viewing “firearms ownership as a freedom issue.”
Yet, according to Hillary Logic, education, safety, prevention of violence, and defending the Second Amendment is “extremism.”
Instead Hillary Logic assumes that by dumping these organizations that “responsible gun owners” will form a different organization. But, to do what– support her gun control goals?
Does Hillary think the majority of gun owners will support universal background checks on EVERY gun owner and gun buyer in America?
Does Hillary think the majority of gun owners will agree to limit the amount of ammunition they can use per gun?
Does Hillary think the majority of gun owners will support banning the many models of firearms she suggests be banned, like assault, assault-style and semi-automatic weapons?
Does Hillary think the majority of gun owners will agree to report to the federal government every personal gift and heirloom firearm they receive given by a father or grandfather to a son, daughter, grandson or granddaughter?
Does Hillary think the majority of gun owners will agree to the federal government cataloguing every gun they own?
The NRA and Gun Owners of America are two of the strongest advocates of the Second Amendment. Were it not for them, the only guns left in America would be illegally owned guns in the hands of criminals and those of an oppressive socialist government. Were it not for the NRA and Gun Owners of America, there would be few if any responsible gun owners in America.
