So it seems that the list of people who oppose the Second Amendment continues to grow. One of the newest additions is Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. She was speaking in Maryland when the issue of the Second Amendment and the Supreme Court came up.
This was right after the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. He was a very prominent supporter of the Second Amendment and his death not only left a space on the bench, but it also created a firestorm on who should replace him.
Well Clinton took this time to try and promote her mother for President. Among the points discussed was gun control. You know what that means don’t you? The Democrats are planning to use the Supreme Court to enact a harsher form of gun control.
Clinton was trying to use emotional tactics to try and get people to vote for her mother. Throughout her speech she mentioned mothers and being a mom several times. “So if you listen to Moms Demand Action and the Brady Campaign and the major efforts pushing for smart, sensible and enforceable gun control across our country, disclosure, have endorsed my mom, they say they believe the next time the Court rules on gun control, it will make a definitive ruling.”
Someone should tell Clinton that the areas with the strictest gun control regulations have the most crime. Look at Chicago. It is considered a war-zone and yet it has very strict gun control laws. They have so many regulations and permits that people need to have that it is very difficult to go out and get a gun.
Not to mention that the people that are killing others with the guns are obtaining them through illegal ways. You don’t see a law-abiding citizen going through and killing a bunch of people. And that is exactly who strict gun control laws would affect.
It would affect the law-abiding citizens that may want to get a gun for either sport or to protect their families. Those people that want the illegal weapons are going to get them through illegal methods.
So you’re telling me that you’re in favor of destroying any chance for people to own a gun through legal means to perhaps protect themselves? What makes sense to you, owning a gun for protection that is going to stop someone from shooting you and your family? Or how about having such strict gun control that they have no chance to defend their family?
That is what I thought. Once again, and I literally cannot stress this enough, the people shooting and killing others are CRIMINALS. They are not citizens who obey the law. But giving Clinton the power to create stricter gun control would only put those citizens in harms way.
Clinton tried to use her status as a new mother to appeal to the voters. “This is one of those issues I didn’t know I could care more about until I became a mother. And I think every day about the Sandy Hook families whose children every day, don’t come home from school. And I can’t even imagine that living horror and tragedy.”
Yes we all know that the Sandy Hook shooting was a tragedy. But that wasn’t a mentally stable person. But they provide these examples as a way to demand stricter gun control. Except for the fact that mentally stable and law-abiding citizens are not going to go around and shoot people.
Now I’m not a mother, and I can’t say that I will ever be one, but I would want to do whatever I can to make sure that my kids are safe. I know for a fact that guns, if in the hands of responsible citizens, can provide the ultimate form of safety for families.
Just use logic for a second. If you were sleeping at home and someone broke into your house, you would want to grab something to make sure your family is safe. Well protecting yourself with a gun is a good way to ensure that. How would you like to come face to face with a gun? I know I wouldn’t.
Now if Clinton were to get elected and instill her choice of judge for the Supreme Court, then people’s ability to get guns is severely limited. Now consider that same scenario mentioned above. This time you don’t have anything to confront the criminal with. Now the likelihood of you or your family members getting hurt has gone up significantly.
Not to mention that the CRIMINALS are still going to get their guns. They never did it the legal way in the first place, and stricter gun control would only endanger those citizens who are willing to follow the law. And you have taken their ability to protect their family away.
Clinton might speak as being a new mother and wanting to protect her kids, but taking away guns is not the way to do it. In fact that would be counter productive. But then again liberal ideology seems to be counter productive. If the American citizens want to keep their ability to purchase guns, then they cannot buy into what Clinton is saying.
Keep in mind that responsible people are not going out and robbing people, shooting people, and buying illegal weapons. The people that do buy guns are most likely doing so either for sport or to protect their families. Don’t let them take that ability away.
Do your part and share this article. If enough people realize that strict gun control is only going to harm citizens rather than help them, then we can do something about it. Vote for Trump in November. He won’t take your guns away!
