Hillary Clinton Says The Government “Has a Right” to Impose Gun Control Regulations (VIDEO)
This morning on ABC News, George Stephanopoulos asked Hillary Clinton to clarify her position on the Second Amendment and gun control. She tried to dance around it but her position is clear, she wants to impose much stricter gun control laws. She even said the government has a right to do so.
That’s where her focus is, the rights of the government, not the rights of the people.

In an interview on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, Hillary Clinton refused to say whether or not the right to bear arms is a constitutional right.
Stephanopoulos asked, “Let’s talk about the Second Amendment. As you know, Donald Trump has also been out on the stump, talking about the Second Amendment, saying you want to abolish the Second Amendment. I know you reject that, but I want to ask you a specific question: Do you believe that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right — that it’s not linked to service in a militia?”
Clinton replied, “I think that for most of our history there was a nuanced reading of the Second Amendment until the decision by the late Justice Scalia, and there was no argument until then that localities and states and the federal government had a right, as we do with every amendment, to impose reasonable regulations. So I believe we can have common sense gun safety measures, consistent with the Second Amendment. And in fact, what I have proposed is supported by 90 percent of the American people and more than 75 percent of responsible gun owners.”
If gun owners agree with her, why did the NRA endorse Trump? Also, that gun show loophole that she and other Democrats love to mention has been debunked a thousand times.
Watch the video:
Make no mistake, this woman is coming after people’s guns.
If she wins the presidency, she might not be able to abolish the Second Amendment but she can make it damn near impossible for people to buy guns.
