Hillary Clinton made another erroneously incompetent statement this past weekend. While some cannot believe she made these statements publicly, others see this as foreshadowing to what she will do to this country if she becomes our next president.
Hillary Clinton was taking questions from AARP Bulletin, and she was asked to clarify her position on gun restrictions and terrorism. Hillary Clinton unequivocally stated with zero hesitation that she would make it one of her top priorities to restrict gun owners from purchasing weapons.
Clinton argued that the only way we can defeat terrorism is to limit and restrict guns in this country.
But I’m looking at violence broadly. … It’s also why I’ve advocated gun-safety reform, like comprehensive background checks, closing the gun-show loophole, closing the online loophole—because, you know, it’s not only terrorists we need to be worried about. Terrorism is part of it, but gun violence kills 33,000 Americans a year. … We’ve got to get serious about stemming violence and terrorism in every way we can.
There are many things to debunk here. First, in the case of this example, California already has comprehensive background checks in place. So, the state does not have a “gun-show loophole” or an “online loophole.” But, they did have a firearm-based terrorist attack in San Bernardino as well as a high profile murder-suicide on the UCLA campus on June 1, 2016.
