Hillary Clinton can’t jump on the bandwagon fast enough in support of gun confiscation. At a Town Hall meeting this week she echoed Obama’s praise for Australia, Canada, and the UK with respect to gun confiscation. Per Breitbart, this is the Q&A in question:
Question: [Regarding] handguns…Australia recently managed to take away tens of thousands–even millions–of handguns, and in one year they were all gone. Can we do that? And if we can’t, why can’t we?
Answer: You know, Australia’s a good example, Canada’s a good example, [and] the UK’s a good example. Why? Because each of them had mass killings. Australia had a huge mass killing about 20 or 25 years ago. Canada did as well. So did the UK. In reaction, they passed much stricter gun laws. In the Australian example, as I recall, that was a buyback program. The Australian government as trying to clamp down on the availability of…weapons offered a good price for buying hundreds of thousands of guns and basically clamped down going forward in terms of having more of a background check approach – – more of a permitting approach.
Clinton went onto say “it would be worth doing it on the national level, here,” drawing an analogy with Obama’s Cash for Clunker program.
As usual, the hypocrisy of the left is on full display as the leftist elites in politics (as well as the media) have armed security. But we, the (little) people, should not be able to protect ourselves, our family, or our property.
And don’t you just love all the concern about “mass shootings,” yet pathetic silence on jihad – a mass attack against civilization?
But mainly: The Second Amendment!
