Hillary and Your Guns
Hillary Clinton was interviewed on the ABC Sunday morning political show, This Week with George Stephanopoulos, and was asked about the Second Amendment to our Constitution.
Just so you remember it correctly our Second Amendment was written as follows:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Most common sense people read that to mean that the citizen's of the U.S. have the right to keep and bear arms, with some regulation in place.
Well it sounds like Hillary is not ready to commit to that.
George Stephanopoulos asked Hillary Clinton the following question "Do you believe that an individual's right to bear arms is a constitutional right, that it's not linked to service in a militia?"
She never answered the question.
Her first response to the question was:
I think that for most of our history, there was a nuanced reading of the Second Amendment...
Nuanced, really Hillary?
George Stephanopoulos then said to her:
"I said do you believe that their conclusion that an individual's right to bear arms is a constitutional right?"
She responded as follows:
If it is a constitutional right, then it, like every other constitutional right, is subject to reasonable regulation.
If it is a constitutional right? Wow! We have a person who will probably be the Democrat nominee for president and she can not even bring herself to say that the right to bear arms is a constitutional right.
Let me get this straight, Democrats believe that healthcare is a constitutional right but guns are not? Please show me where in the constitution we find that healthcare is a constitutional right because I can show you where the constitution tells us that owning a gun is.
We all must be very concerned about this person. Regulations on guns is fine but to not be able to say that it is a constitutional right for an American citizen to own a gun is very scary if you ask me.
