You cannot ever trust Democrats to protect your rights!

Clinton suggests she’d consider mandatory gun buy-backs, sparking fears of ‘confiscation’

Published October 18, 2015 FoxNews.com

Hillary Clinton said Friday that mandatory gun buy-back programs like ones in Australia are “worth looking into,” sparking criticism that the Democratic presidential front-runner would, if elected, impose gun-confiscation efforts.

Clinton made the comments during a campaign stop in Keene, N.H., when an attendee asked about Australia’s 1996 and 2003 buy-back programs that collected roughly 700,000 banned semi-automatic rifles and other firearms.

“I think it would be worth considering doing it on the national level, if that could be arranged,” Clinton responded.

“This validates what the NRA has said all along,” said Chris Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action. “The real goal of gun control supporters is gun confiscation.”

Cox said Clinton’s comments echo recent ones by President Obama, making “very clear” that the underlying goal of gun-control advocates is confiscation.

Translation: when Mrs Clinton says that such a program would be “worth looking into,” she means that she has already decided, and would damned well put such a program into play the second she got into office.

Of course, Mrs Clinton herself has been protected by armed guards, from Arkansas state troopers to Secret Service agents, every single day since January 11, 1983, the date of her husband beginning his second stint as Governor of Arkansas. She has spent half of her entire life being protected by armed men, but as for you, as for the common man, well, Hell no, they don’t have any right to own firearms to protect themselves if they believe they are threatened.

Here is the tape of Hillary Clinton saying that she believe that “the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.”

The Washington Free Beacon noted that:

The Clinton fundraiser was hosted at the Greenwich Village home of John Zaccaro, a convicted felon. During her remarks, Clinton also proposed the creation of a national infrastructure bank, which she indicated would be modeled on the work done by the Clinton Global Initiative. She did not take questions after her speech.

Consorting with convicted drug dealers, and being surrounded with armed guards; that’s just normal for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
