Hillary Clinton has insisted that she doesn’t want to take away anyone’s guns.
in June, during an interview with Clinton Foundation donor and former Bill Clinton campaign operative George Stephanopoulos, however, she seemed to dodge answering a question as to whether the right to own guns is protected by the US Constitution. Using the word if, as in “if” it is a constitutional right, she explained on ABC’s “This Week” that the right would be subject to reasonable regulation by the government.
In leaked audio from a private fundraiser last year, Hillary Clinton declared that the Supreme Court “is wrong on the Second Amendment.” At the moment, there is one vacancy on the nine-member Supreme Court.
“The Clinton campaign did not respond to questions about the specific areas where Clinton disagrees with the Supreme Court. However, the Heller ruling is considered the most sweeping and controversial second amendment decision made by the highest court in recent years. The Supreme Court affirmed that the Second Amendment granted gun rights to individuals whether or not they were members of an organized government militia in 2008,” the Washington Free Beacon reported at the time.
A newly released James O’Keefe undercover video might shed more light on the Democrat nominee’s gun control agenda.
Russ Feingold, an ex-US senator from Wisconsin who is trying to win back his old job, apparently acknowledges in footage from an August Silicon Valley fundraiser that Clinton could issue executive orders on gun control. One of the hosts of the fundraiser is more explicit, saying:
Hillary wants to shut it down. If we can get guns away from everyone in this country, she’ll close the loopholes, she’ll get rid of assault weapons, she will get rid of being able to buy you know, unlimited bullets…
Clinton’s campaign website claims that the candidate “has a record of advocating for common-sense approaches to reduce gun violence.”
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has repeatedly warned that the end game for Clinton’s gun control agenda involves taking away firearms from law-abiding citizens.
