USA – (AmmoLand.com) – Hillary Clinton just can’t help it. Never mind that her soundless demand for gun control led gun owners to come out in record numbers to deny her an almost certain victory in the White House in 2016. It doubles.

Five years later, she’s still spitting vitriol on Americans. She still wants to punish freedom-loving Americans instead of criminals. She’s still yelling from her hike in the woods to ban the modern sporting rifle (MSR), and she still has no contact with Americans across the country.

Clinton, whose loss in the White House was not least due to the fact that the Americans rejected their demands to re-enact the failed ban on “offensive weapons”, is resurrecting their demands for gun control. She does it with the usual Clinton disdain and disrespect. The same former presidential candidate who called Americans calling her platform “Basket of deplorable things“Now ridicule those who rate their constitutional rights as” shameless “and” shameless “Gun worshipers. ”

Clinton made the heinous allegations on a podcast called “Just Something About Her,” hosted by her former campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri.

“You know, democracy is the balance of interests and rights, and unfortunately gun worshipers have a huge advantage right now because of the filibuster and their shameless exploitation of the unjustified fears of the people,” said Clinton said.

Clinton’s hit on the filibuster is ironic as it attempted to use the tactic to withhold confirmation from the US Supreme Court, Samuel Alito, of the bank. She also voted for it filibuster the abolition of the “death tax”. Now to questions of constitutional rights – specifically those of Clinton to prefer to eliminate, if not weaken, it is all for throwing it away.

Democracy and rights

Clinton speaks of “democracy” and deliberately forgets that America is an America Republic. Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence and second President of America, made it clear that democracy is not a “balance of interests and rights”. He warned: “A democracy is nothing more than a mob rule where fifty-one percent of people can take away the rights of the other forty-nine.”

Pure democracy would be madness. The founders knew that. Benjamin Franklin As is well known, the answer to the question in the Constitutional Convention whether delegates had produced a republic or a monarchy with: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

This is exactly what US Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has to be “ridiculous theaterCounter-argument from Democratic senators who called for gun bans and strict gun controls after the horrific murders in Boulder, Colorado.

“What happens on this committee after every mass shooting is that the Democrats have proposed that guns be stolen from law-abiding citizens because that is their political goal,” he said added. “The jurisdictions in this country with the strictest gun control have one of the highest rates of crime and homicide. When you disarm law-abiding citizens, you increase the chances of them becoming victims. “

Sen. Cruz did it. He relied on what Jefferson warned. The rights of the 49 percent should not be left to the mob wishes of the 51 percent.

Pivot and insult

Clinton didn’t care. Their contempt for a republic goes hand in hand with their aversion to the second amendment and to those who would defend it.

“The opportunists on the other hand, like Cruz and his husband,” Clinton said said “They know better and are able to really upset people and fear that decent guns legislation like the one we had in the 1990s for 10 years will somehow undermine their rights.”

Catch that? “His type.” Gun worshipers. Basket of deplorable things. Interests and rights.

“Well what about the rights of all of us?” Clinton added. “The right of us to go to work, go shopping, go to the movies, go to school, for God’s sake – what about the rest of us?”

Clinton would rather deny those who go to work, shop, or certain appointments their constitutional right to keep and carry guns in order to protect themselves from the vicious criminals who persecute innocent lives.

She doesn’t understand and doesn’t want to. Gun control in the Senate doesn’t even have all 50 Democratic senators on board. Clinton just wants to tear up the second addition along with the filibuster.
