Referring to gun restriction bills not becoming law, @HillaryClinton in town hall refers to minority that “terrorizes” the majority

It appears that the woman who was so corrupt that she was thrown out of the Watergate trial isn’t a fan of guns in the hands of anyone except Vince Foster.
During a town hall meeting today, Clinton said that American gun owners opposed to universal background checks—an prerequisite for registration and confiscation— are terrorizing the rest of the nation.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke about her views on gun control Tuesday, saying she was “disappointed” Congress did not pass a universal background checks bill after “the horrors” of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
“I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation, we cannot let a minority of people — and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people — hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people,” Clinton said during a CNN town hall.
Clinton said she feels for parents sending their kids to school, noting that there have been 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook.
“I don’t think any parent, any person, should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone, for whatever reasons — psychological, emotional, political, ideological, whatever it means — could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers,” Clinton said.
Of course, there are those pesky facts that keep ruining Hillary’s arguments, like the fact that universal background checks wouldn’t have prevented any of the nation’s high-profile school attacks at Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, or the more recent attacks on Isla Vista, Seattle Pacific, or Reynolds High School.
Universal background checks have precisely one use, and one use only: creating an unofficial paper trail that can then be leveraged into a de facto gun registry, which is turn is useful for confiscatory efforts like those we see taking place in California.
Clinton also cited the thoroughly debunked and discredited “74 school shootings” meme created by the execrable Moms Demand Action/Everytown, which was roundly debunked by both CNN and PolitiFact.
And of course, Mrs. Clinton knows well the difference between automatic weapons and semi-automatic weapons, and she knows that legally owned automatic weapons have been used for precisely one murder since 1934, and that automatic weapons have not been manufactured for the civilian market since 1986 when FOPA ’86 became law, 28 years ago.
The blood clot the 66-year-old Clinton suffered that resulted in a very long recovery period out of the public eye must have caused more damage to her brain than anyone suspected.
Bless her heart.
