Hillary Clinton wants to keep ‘assault weapons’ out of the hands of terrorists and off of our streets. She wants to sound reasonable for her low information supporters who do not listen to facts or reason. An ‘assault weapon’ is the most popular rifle in America by sales to law abiding citizens who have all passed background checks. These rifles are semi-automatic, meaning they fire one bullet when you press the trigger; that’s no different than any other hunting rifle.
She is so out of touch with reality I feel sorry for her. Criminals do not buy their guns legally with a background check; instead they buy them on the black market, or steal them out of peoples vehicles and homes. Drugs such as marijuana and heroin are banned and they can be found anywhere on the streets of America. If weapons are banned, criminals will still have them, and the law abiding citizen will be defenseless against armed attackers.
Americans have the right to protect themselves from criminals and terrorists. An effective means of defense is the gun; not limited to a certain type. Pistols, rifles, and shotguns are legitimate for home defense based on an individuals preference. The 2nd Amendment says that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
She hasn’t named the terrorists, she just wants to stop ‘them’. Perhaps Libertarians, Republicans, Conservatives, and the ‘alt-right’ are terrorists in HC’s mind; anyone who disagrees with her would face persecution.
HC is proposing doing “more” to identify and stop terrorists from carrying out attacks in the United States. She plans to increase resources to prevent attacks before they happen, launching an intelligence ‘surge’ on the American people and building relationships with Muslim communities.
She is endorsing is mass government surveillance of all citizen’s emails (except for hers), text messages, phone calls, web browsing, and social media. The 1st Amendment be damned in her eyes.
HC’s vision for keeping America safe is to bypass the Constitution, spy on us, expand government taxes and spending, and ban the most popular rifle in America. She is against what Americans stand for and she will be defeated at the polls today.
