POLIZETTE — Hillary Clinton will continue President Obama’s anti-Second Amendment crusade — and seems to think she can get law-abiding gun owners to help her.
Speaking at a rally in Hartford, Connecticut Thursday, Clinton vowed to end America’s “gun culture” if elected. “We can do this consistent with the Second Amendment,” Clinton claimed.
“We can do this with the support of responsible gun voters,” she continued. “And that is exactly what we will do.” How exactly Clinton thinks restrictions placed on a freedom guaranteed by the Second Amendment can be consistent with the Second Amendment, she did not say.
Neither did she explain how she was going to get “responsible gun voters” to willingly assist in the restriction of their own rights. What was clear at Clinton’s Connecticut rally, however, was that putting restrictions on Americans’ Second Amendment rights will be a central focus of a Clinton presidency.
In 2012 Connecticut was rocked by the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, a fact which Clinton exploited to full effect. The rally — her first public campaign stop in Connecticut this year — included two people who had lost family members in the Newtown shooting.
