How much does Hillary Clinton hate the Second Amendment?
On June 5th, the Democratic nominee joined George Stephanopoulos on the ABC show Sunday Morning This Week to talk about Americans’ gun rights. In the interview, Mrs. Clinton could not even definitively say the Second Amendment was a Constitutional right, but that if it is, it’s subject to ‘reasonable regulation’.
Stephanopoulos: “Do you believe that their conclusion that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right?”
Clinton: “If it is a Constitutional right, then it, like every other Constitutional right, is subject to reasonable regulations. And what people have done with that decision is to take it as far as they possibly can and reject what has been our history from the very beginning of the Republic, where some of the earliest laws that were passed were about firearms. So I think it’s important to recognize that reasonable people can say, as I do, responsible gun owners have a right — I have no objection to that. But the rest of the American public has a right to require certain kinds of regularity, responsible actions to protect everyone else.”
Mrs. Clinton also claimed her ‘common sense gun safety measures’ are supported by the majority of Americans, including gun owners.
